Jaeger-LeCoultre‘s Master Ultra Thin collection, with its refined proportions and restrained styling, takes the concept of a sophisticated dress watch to new heights. This collection, renowned for its technical virtuosity and enduring beauty, welcomes two stunning additions: the Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon Enamel and the Master Ultra Thin Power Reserve.
Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon Enamel
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon Enamel is a masterpiece that seamlessly combines traditional craftsmanship with cutting-edge technology. The fully polished pink gold case houses a mesmerizing blue dial, providing a striking backdrop for the tourbillon and date display. The guillochage, a hand-operated rose engine lathe technique, intricately crafts the sunray pattern with 1,080 lines, showcasing the brand’s commitment to precision.
The date sub-dial, featuring circular hand-guilloché (azurage), adds a subtle texture to the dial, requiring over 1,100 gestures by the skilled guillocheur. The Grand Feu enamel in a newly developed shade of blue is meticulously applied in multiple layers, creating a vivid and depth-rich color, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal.
The transparent tourbillon aperture, secured by a mirror-polished pink gold bridge, invites the observer to delve deeper into the mechanism. The alligator strap, matched to perfection with the dial, adds a final touch of refinement to this exquisite timepiece.
The movement, driven by the latest generation Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 978, boasts a titanium cage and a flat, two-level hairspring, ensuring high accuracy and precision. This watch is a testament to the brand’s dedication to uniting technical mastery with enduring beauty.
Master Ultra Thin Power Reserve
Continuing its pursuit of precision and utility, Jaeger-LeCoultre introduces the Master Ultra Thin Power Reserve. The revised Calibre 938 powers this new generation timepiece, featuring a remarkable 70-hour power reserve.
The redesigned mainspring barrel, incorporation of silicon components, and minor adjustments have increased the reliability of the movement while maintaining a slim 4.9mm thickness. The signature power reserve complication, pioneered by Jaeger-LeCoultre in 1948, remains a focal point, now complemented by date and small seconds indicators.
The refined dial architecture, with larger sub-dials and elongated hour markers, enhances legibility and creates a harmonious visual experience. The gradient midnight blue sunray dial, coupled with a navy-blue alligator strap, adds a modern touch to the classic 39mm case.
