From an estate sale we have up for sale an interesting and beautiful LeCoultre Swiss desk clock with the ever popular straight-line skeleton movement in a plastic or lucite case. These lucite cased examples do not seem to show up often!
Roman numerals are engraved into a brass ring mounted on the case. The mainspring barrel is marked LeCoultre Swiss, and Sixteen 16 Jewels Unadjusted on the bridge above it.
There is a difficult to see date hand scratched (probably by an owner of the clock) into the bottom reading 1942/3 (3 over 2). There is some crazing or stress cracking to some parts of the case but I don't think it detracts much from the appearance.
The clock is running nicely but the last service date is unknown.

This is an announcement about this: ***Reporting Value on Customs Declarations*** August 22, 2006 | 01:59PM PST/PT
Postal administrations in several international countries have contacted the United States Postal Service about the declaration of value placed on customs forms. They have noted that in many cases, the declared value is understated when compared to the actual invoice or known value of the item, especially for sales conducted over the internet. While this applies to sellers both on and off , the USPS has asked us to remind our sellers to declare the proper value on all customs forms. The correct value of each item is required on customs forms as it helps determine the proper duties and taxes, and whether they should be applied. Some countries will soon begin taking steps to address this issue, such as levying fines on the addressee when the declared value is determined to be lower than the invoice.
To make sure you're complying with international regulations, please make sure the stated value on your customs declaration is supported by your invoices or other documentation.
Buyer agrees by offerding that any claim for loss can not be filed before 21 days (USA), 45 days (International) or 60 days for Italy due to insurance company rules. If a claim is made buyer agrees to assist by completing a short email form necessary by the insurance company and returning it to me before any payment can be made.
I reserve the right to cancel any sale for which I am unable to insure the item.
