The Master collection by Jaeger‑LeCoultre frees itself of accessories to focus on the essential. It shows itself just the way it is. Grandly elegant. Recognizable because of its sleek design, the Master collection is available in three ranges: the Master Grande Tradition, the Master Ultra Thin and the Master Control. Though each watch has its own features and complications, what they all have in common is their rounded shape and the finesse of their details. Purity, and nothing else.
A rendez-vous does not reveal its secrets at first glance - you need to look closer to discover its treasures: its self-winding movement, whose complex mechanics are revealed through the sapphire crystal caseback. The subtlety of the fine cut, the dial, which is finely engraved or finished with mother of pearl, the glow of the gems.
Timeless in its face surrounded by its three emblematic gadroons, the Reverso has been enchanting both men and women with an eye for beauty since its creation. Often androgynous, it knows how to show off its femininity in jeweled models or affirm its masculinity by pronounced complexities and a marked Art Déco aesthetic.
The Jaeger‑LeCoultre Polaris collection draws its inspiration from the Memovox Polaris of 1968, an icon of the Grande Maison. At the heart of this historic model is an iconic function: the alarm. Originally, this Memovox function, or "voice of memory," served to remind divers that it was time to return to the surface. The original design with two off-center crowns and slightly thickened domed glass for enhanced readability has inspired the new collection A sporty look that evokes the Jaeger instruments fitted in the most iconic vintage cars.
What inspiration led the Jaeger‑LeCoultre watchmakers to dream up the Atmos clock in 1928? How did they think to use variations in temperature to power it? The Atmos clock still surprises people today because of its inventiveness. Within a sealed capsule, a mixture of gases expand and contract with each temperature change. Thus, the mechanism winds naturally, without any human intervention.
The dual wing system arose out of the desire to redefine the limits of watchmaking. It's revolutionary in every way. Two independent clock mechanisms are connected by a regulating organ and give the timepieces in the Duomètre collection a level of reliability and precision that is second to none. The first mechanism is dedicated to the proper functioning of the complications, the second ensures the precise measurement of the elapsed time. By combining these two sides that make up the dual wing movement, the Duomètre collection deserves a special position in the world of highly complex watches. These clocks are thought out down to the smallest detail. All parts have been skillfully decorated with endless patience. Many high-precision techniques are used to manually decorate the movements of each watch. The “Côtes Soleillées”, for example, is a patented technique that leaves an imprint on the metal, similar to the rays of the sun. The extraordinary attention to detail enables a harmonious interaction between all elements of the Duomètre.
