Avatar

Even at Jaeger Lecoultre, they know that I am not a big fan of paved watches. I almost never take pictures of them, truth to be told. But here, I made an exception. Why? Because here, it is not only about jewelry! Indeed, not only these two watches are a ture challenge in terms of fine jewelry, and you will soon understand why, but they are also, or should I say mainly, an object of horology...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Minute Repeater Titanium: 13th anniversary.

Avatar
amanico
When the Master Minute Repeater was first unveiled, in 2005, it was the platinum version. It was such an instant love that I almost forgot that one year before, Jaeger Lecoultre gave birth to one of their most extraordinary watches, the Master Gyotourbillon One. I was starting to dream, checked the list price, and I was pretty convinced that it would tay in the " dream watch " category. One year after, in 2006, they introduced the Titanium ( polished ) version with its awesome open dial, and immediately, .....Story

Jaeger Lecoultre and chiming watches. Some videos

Avatar
amanico
Jaeger Lecoultre sent me a very interesting link with some videos on their chiming watches. There are some facts I knew, some that I forgot. When Jaeger Lecoultre says, for example, that they made 200 chiming calibres, they count the alarm, too. A fact I could have remembered as I saw the exhibition they made some 10 years ago on their chiming watches, which included alarm watches, too...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Memovox, Limited Edition in Platinum.

There are very few pictures of the Grande Memovox in platinum which are nice. I found one from Christies, which usually use good pictures, but here, well, not their best: And another one, not bad at all, from " Watchbox ": During my last visit at the Manufacture, in... April 2019, I asked the Heritage Gallery to let me take some pictures of it. Here they are: One of the reasons of this relative scarcity is that it is a limited edition of 250 pieces...Story

Avatar
amanico
And still counting! A bit before the end of the lockdown in France, I started with the Amvox IIP. Then, almost one month with 2 vintage I didn't wear for a while, the Deep Sea Alarm US and Europe. The US: The Europe: And, now I am currently wearing the Duometre à Chronographe in white gold. It is not a secret that I am a multi brand guy, with a bit more than 20 different brands in my collection, but Jaeger Lecoultre has the most important place in my heart and in number of watches...Story

A view on Vintage Jaeger Chronographs.

Avatar
amanico
Here, to avoid any confusion, we will discuss and share some thoughts, informations and pictures about vintage Jaeger Chronographs, no Lecoultre nor Jaeger Lecoultre, just Jaeger signed chronographs. A precision, here. The Jaeger and Jaeger Lecoultre signed chronographs were issued for the European market, sometimes exclusively for France, while the Lecoultre badged ones were destined to the US market. Sometimes, you have the same model, badged Lecoultre or Jaeger Lecoultre, such as the E 2643 better known .....Story

1950 - 2020... Jaeger Lecoultre is celebrating the 70th birthday of its icon, the Memovox. For that significant birthday, the Manufacture decided to unveil two models, the Master Control Memovox, and the Master Control Memovox Timer. Let's first start with the MEMOVOX: The new Master Control Memovox is the heir of three watches, the reference 3150 for the dial ( 1950 ), the reference 3151 for the case ( 1950 ), and the reference E 855 which was the first to use an automatic movement AND a date ( 1959 )...Story

Another view on the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Minute Repeater ( 2009 ).

Avatar
amanico
If there is a watch which is almost never discussed, the Master Grande Tradition Minute Repeater is certainly one of them. Unveiled in 2009, 4 years after the Master Minute Repeater in platinum, it came as a surprise. And surprisingly, its case and dial didn't receive any variation the years after. Yes, this is a " one of its kind ", in yellow gold, limited to 100 pieces, inaugurating the new Master Grande Tradition case and line...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Ultra Thin Jubilée / 1907 White Gold Enamel. The best Master Ultra Thin?

Avatar
amanico
Finding my Jaeger Lecoultre Ultra Thin watch is a work in progress for some years, now. The easy way would be to find a MUT 34 in platinum with its superb grey blue dial or a steel black dial. I am fine with the 34 mm case, the Cal 849 which I really love, but in 2013, I started to have my heart beat faster when I discovered the MUT Jubilée. Better than the MUT 34? THAT is the question! There are some big pros for the MUT Jubilée: - The " couteau " ( knife shaped ) case, which is truly spectacular and which .....Story

Jaeger Lecoultre new Master Control Line: Some close ups of the dials.

Avatar
amanico
I posted an article on the new Master Control line, last week. today I suggest we have a closer look on the dials. I had the idea to isolate the dials and to focus on them, to show the sunburst finish and some other details. Indeed, when you look at the pictures I posted last week, you don't see these details very well...Story
