Well, to avoid any confusion, this Reverso has been with me for 15 years. I got it in August 2007, it was released in 2002. How to describe this watch? Formal and precious, it is, with its elegant ruthenium dial and its sensual floral numerals, made in silver powder. Without forgetting the rare rectangular case, made in Platinum and the movement plates and bridges in.....Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Minute Repeater Titanium: 15th Anniversary.

Avatar
amanico
When we look back at the Jaeger Lecoultre Catalogue, the Master Minute Repeater in titanium was, in my opinion, one of the most thrilling releases, in 2006, two years after the wonderful Master Gyrotourbillon One, and one year after the Master Minute Repeater in platinum. To be honest, I was in awe when I saw the Gyrotourbillon One introduced in the catalogue, but I was even more impressed with the Master Minute Repeater in platinum. Of course, the Gyrotourbillon One is horologically superior ( if we accept ... ...Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: Jaeger Lecoultre Master Memovox Timer Rose Gold.

Avatar
amanico
In 2020, Jaeger Lecoultre introduced the Master Memovox Timer, a new Memovox, using the new Master Case, totally revisited, refined should I say, thinner ( 12, 39 mm high ), even though it has the same diameter than the former one ( 40 mm ). The key points of the Memovox Timer were: - The blend of coolness and elegance, with a superb sunburst blue dial contrasting with the polished applied indices and an eye-catching alarm disc with engraved numerals. - The generous bevels on the lugs . The case gains in .....Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Control Date and Master Control Calendar Blue Dials.

Avatar

You certainly kept in mind that when we saw the new Master Control Line in 2020, we were hoping that, one day, a colored version would come. Some thought, logically, that a black dial would " land ". Logically as for more than 20 years, steel cases were associated to black dials, and we have in mind the " Black Series " from the late 90's, early 2000's, such as the Master Perpetual Calendar, Memovox, Ultra Thin 34, Geographic and so on. In that vein, we had a more recent wave of Master in Steel with black .....Story

For many years we wanted to organize a Manufacture Tour with Jaeger Lecoultre. Because Jaeger Lecoultre is one the most interesting watchmakers, because our site celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, because our relations with the brand are long and friendly. We wanted to make it happen in 2018 and in 2019 we were on to make it, it was in the tube and... The Covid came...Story

2022 Watches and Wonders: A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Cal 948.

Avatar
amanico
If you are an avid reader of our Jaeger Lecoultre forum, this Master Grande Tradition Calibre 948 will remind you something, and more specifically, the Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time issued in 2017. The Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time, which was limited to 100 pieces. Indeed, the Master Grande Tradition Cal 948 shares the same concept,a flying and a tourbillon which makes one rotation all around the dial in 24 Hours AND a world time function, but expressed in a different way, should I say more... .....Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Perpetual Calendar in Steel and in Rose Gold.

Avatar
amanico
In 2018, Jaeger Lecoultre decided to widen the scope of the iconic Polaris, which since 1965 and the unveiling of the first model is, basically, a diving Memovox, re-edited in 2008. So, 4 years ago, Jaeger Lecoultre came to the SIHH in Geneva with a whole family of Polaris, and not only a water resistant alarm watch. Since then, we had the Polaris Automatic ( no date, no alarm ), the Polaris Date ( No Alarm ), the Polaris 50th Anniversary ( Alarm and Date ), the Polaris Chronograph, the Polaris Chronograph ... ...Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Rendez-Vous Dazzling Star.

Avatar

The Rendez Vous is a line which was born in 2019. A line which gave birth to some marvels, such as the Celestial or the Moon. This year again, Jaeger Lecoultre decided to give to the Rendez-Vous a new complication, dedicated to the Celestial Universe, which they strangely call Dazzling Star, while I would have rather called it Shooting Star. I will say it straight, this watch is a summit of poetry and romanticism...Story

When you read Hybris Mechanica, you can expect something technically sophisticated. This Atmos Hybris Mechanica Cal 590 is no exception to that. But I prefer its other nickname, the Tellurium. Technically sophisticated , this new movement, the Calibre 590, made of 443 parts, certainly is as it required 4 years of development...Story
