One of the indubitable elites of today Haute Horology, Jaeger LeCoultre goes back to the first half of the 19th century, to the small Swiss town called Le Sentier, where a young daring watchmaker, Antoine LeCoultre, launched his small business, which produced high-end timepieces.
Through the years, the brand gradually evolved into a top-class manufacture, internationally appreciated for the unmatched sophistication of its mechanical movements, which proved, time and again, an impressive level of horological expertise, uncompromising innovation, and a meticulous finish, which pushes every tiny detail into the realm of perfection.
Surely, an impassionate watch connoisseur, will know that, over the years, Jaeger LeCoultre signed many revolutionary concepts, which profoundly changed the world of luxury watch-making, and that pushed forward, every time around, the known limits of imagination, and creativity.
Recently, the brand brought another amazing addition to its sophisticated Jaeger-LeCoultre Grand Tradition watch Line, the stylish new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication watch, a superb new model, which reunites three horological complications- a zodiac calendar, a flying tourbillon and a minute repeater, which will surely impress the most demanding watch collectors worldwide.
The model features a classy platinum round case, measuring 44 mm in diameter, which demonstrates a beautiful satin-polished finish, which incorporates a fluted platinum crown, and which provides the advantage of 50-meter water resistance.
Belonging to a very exclusive edition of just 75 pieces, the amazing new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication watch, hides beneath an apparent minimalism, a remarkable horological complexity. At a closer glimpse, the watch’s dial, fitted with faceted hands, demonstrates a fascinating chart of the Northern night sky, while the flying tourbillon, instead of tracking the minutes of the official time, indicates the time of a Sidereal Day (true day). Moreover, a minuscule sun indicates, through the 12 zodiac signs, presented on a dial’s outer rim, the 12 months of the year, and ensures the Mean Solar Time indication best known as the official time.
Furthermore, the model is animated by an innovative in house, hand-wound mechanical movement, the Calibre 945, which oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 alternations per second and, which incorporates 527 individual parts, assembled by only one expert watchmaker.
In addition, we have to mention that the fascinating Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication watch has a lengthily 48-hour power reserve, and accommodates a revolutionary minute-repeater mechanism, the trebuchet hammers, which ensure an impressively full, harmonious sound.
Probably a dream for any impassionate collector, who shares his passion for high-end sophisticated timepieces, with another passion for astronomy, the remarkable Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication watch will probably be available for a pretty exclusive price tag, somewhere in the six figures range.
