After the introduction of the masterpiece of the year, the Gyrotourbillon Five, at the SIHH in January, Jaeger Lecoultre comes back, 4 months after, with another big piece, the Master Grande Tradition Minute Repeater Perpetual, which I will call the " Minute Repeater Perpetual ". This new watch is an unexpected challenge. Indeed, you certainly remember what I wrote about Minute Repeaters using automatic watches. In short, I complained about the fact that the Minute Repeater was such a prestigious complication .....Story

The Master Ultra Thin Perpetual Calendar saga started not a long time ago, as the first ones came in 2013, followed in 2016 by the steel case black dialed version which is a star.

The Steel Silver grained dial : The Steel Black: First of all, the dial, of course, as it is the main interest of this version: The dial , like for the MUT ... ...Story

This year, Jaeger Lecoultre unveils two different Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon. One I already reviewed, the Enamel, which you can rediscover here: It is a 40 mm white gold case, with a guilloché blue enameled dial AND a sub dial dedicated to the date. The second Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon is in rose gold, with the same size, thinner, with a 10, 77 mm height, compared to the 12, 13 mm thickness of the white gold blue enameled version, which is due to the presence of the enamel dial. The two Master Ultra .....Story

i own one harmless & humble Reverso and honestly I've not given time enough to understand what JLC is, beyond the 'Reverso'... that ignorance was put to an end yesterday - Big thanks to the Mr Aurelien Robert from Geneva boutique ! Also thanks to the immense patience of Ms. Anne-Laure Dujardin - a full day manufacture visit along with my son wouldn't have been possible without her (plus she is extremely knowledgable to explain detailed complications - hard to find such talent in today's marketing world) . .....Story

Been a month of travelling for me… Family vacation, work trips and in the middle of everything, Jaeger-LeCoultre asked me to hold a presentation for some of their customers. Always good when you are invited as a guest speaker - no pressure, just fun! And to be asked to present something you are very passionate about, then even better. Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches and History – what could be more fun?! So earlier this week I flew over to Helsinki to meet up with the Jaeger-LeCoultre team. Helsinki is a very beautiful .....Story

SIHH 2019: Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpetual, aka Gyrotourbillon 5. The review.

Avatar

INTRODUCTION Jaeger-Lecoultre has a curious habit... They give some very long names to their watches too often. So, please allow me to call the Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpetual the Gyrotourbillon Five, which is an appropriate name since it is the fifth chapter of the Gyrotourbillon saga which I reviewed here: A Saga which started in 2004, with the Master Gyrotourbillon One, followed by the Reverso Gyrotourbillon Two, in 2008 ( first unveiling in October 2007 ), then the Master ... ...Story
