Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso Tourbillon Platinum Skeleton. Some fresh pictures and thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
One of our friends came with this splendid Reverso Tourbillon Platinum Skeleton, during an event in Paris. The probability you fall on someone wearing this watch is close to zero, as it was issued as a true limited edition, a batch of 35 pieces, in 2004, and I only saw two for sale in these last 10 years. I would also add that this is the third I had the opportunity to see in the reality, in these last 15 years. This Reverso is pure magic...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Vintage Double Date Ref 2701. Some pictures and thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
We know the Vintage Jaeger Lecoultre Triple Dates very well here, as several of us own or owned one. The Triple Date is certainly one of the nicest vintage Jaeger Lecoultre with its tear drop lugs, its superb movement and its timeless dial. Add the " big case ", which is 36 mm, and you have a hit. Ref 2721: Less well known and sought after, but absolutely charming, the Double Date which was in production from 1935 to 1945 is a sweet candy...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Duomètre A Chronographe, White Gold. 3 years of joyful ownership.

Avatar
amanico
The Duomètre à Chronographe certainly is one of my most important watch, I would even say inside and outside Jaeger Lecoultre. I said it many times, but since its unveiling, it has been an instant love affair, at the point I ordered it, in platinum, at the SIHH, in 2007. At that level of price, 40, 000 Euros for the platinum in 2007, it was not only a bargain, but most importantly, it had a level of finishing and decoration which I would dare to call incomparable in the Jaeger Lecoultre universe, AND, still ... ...Story

If you are lucky enough to visit the Jaeger Lecoultre Manufacture, ask your guide to show you the Heritage Gallery. There, you will have a small but impressive " aperçu " of the absolute richness and diversity of the legendary perpetual clock, best known under the name " Atmos ". The Wall of Atmos: There are two ways to treat this topic: - The Atmos is quintessentially an object of Design, which is totally true. Since 1927, yes, 1927 and probably not 1928 as generally admitted, and the first prototype of .....Story

Soon to be auctioned: LeCoultre Polaris Memodate.

A Lecoultre Polaris Reference E 859 " Memodate " will soon be auctioned by Phillips. It is the opportunity to remind some facts. The Polaris E 859 certainly is a rare watch, with only 50 prototypes made in 1963 ( not issued, just prototypes ), 500 watches made in 1965 with this dial: The Polaris, which belonged to the Curator of the Jaeger Lecoultre Heritage Gallery. The Polaris 1965: And, perhaps, 1214 watches made from 1967 to 1970 with this dial: If I said " perhaps ", it is because the Manufacture stated .....Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Three Meteorite. Pictures and thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
Jaeger Lecoultre unveiled, a few days ago, another version of the Gyrotourbillon Three. Let's remember that the Gyrotourbillon Three was born in 2013, and that it offered the combination of a Gyrotourbillon and a digital minutes chronograph, the night and day indicator being anecdotal. In 2014, the Manufacture came with a " Hybris Artistic " version, with some notable differences: A tantalum case instead of platinum, a darkened decoration of the movement, and a black opaline dial. The bad news is that it .....Story

Jaeger Lecoultre grey dialed watches. Is grey the new black?

Avatar
amanico
Traditionally, we think that a watch must have a white / sliver or black dial. We see more and more watches with salmon or blue dials, which seems to be nowadays tendance for the brands, even if some brands had blue or salmon dialed watched in their catalogues for some decades. Red dials are also used by several brands, and of course, brown / chocolate / tobacco. For instance, Jaeger Lecoultre had blue dials in the catalogue for a very long time...Story

If you are following me during all these years, you know that I have some obsessions, such as the date, the straps...And the case. For some years, it seems that Jaeger-Lecoultre decided to revisit the case of their watches. They launched some new ones, such as the Master Ultra Thin " Jubilée " in 2013, the Geophysic in 2014 and the Polaris this year... And, since 2009, the Master Grande Tradition...Story
