Jaeger Lecoultre Amvox II: Some thoughts on a pure product of design and technicality.

Avatar

Let's see how the idea was born, and what are the key details of this watch. The idea come from the Creation - Design Department of the manufacture, and more precisely from the collaboration of two talents, Magali Metrailler for the dial, and Francis Cretin for all the other parts of the watch ( case design and conception, hands, glass, the shape of the crown, well everything else ). The Creation-Design Department submitted the first sketch in December 2004, which was accepted, and the watch was unveiled ... ...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Duomètre à Chronographe White Gold Black Dial 5th Anniversary!

Avatar

The Duometre à Chronographe in white gold is certainly not the watch which is in my collection for the longest time, by far, but 5 years of common life, that starts to count, especially due to the story between this watch and me, from the first discovery, at the SIHH in... 2007, the moment I got it, in 2008, in platinum with a rare white dial, the sad event which made me lose it, in January 2011, and almost 5 years later, its replacement, in white gold, this special journey makes you feel how special and ... ...Story

Unveiled in April 2021, it took me some months to discover the Reverso Tribute Nonantième, which is now done. I already quickly reviewed it, and shared my first impressions with you, here: I suggest we discuss this new Reverso with a different angle, now, and wonder if the Reverso Tribute Nonantième is a true Anniversary watch, compared to the Soixantième ( 1991 ) and the Septantième ( 2002 ). I will sum my thoughts this way: The Tribute Nonantième has the class and the originality of a " Reverso Anniversary ... ...Story

My favorite Jaeger Lecoultre from these 6 past years.

There are watches which are still doable, and watches which belong to the dream category here. In the doable category, these are the ones: First place for the Geophysic Universal Time, for its look, its original complication ( world time + dead second ), and for its new movement ( Cal 772 ) : The second place goes to the Reverso Tribute Duo Steel, from 2016, for its exquisite proportions ( just a tad bigger than a GT case ), its grainy dial, and of course, its complication ( second time zone ) : The third ... ...Story

Recently, Jaeger Lecoultre revisited the Master Ultra Thin Moon. They offer it in a new 36 mm case, which is really nice with its opaline dial and its " improved " Cal 925, and in a 39 mm case we know since 2011, but here, slightly slimmer as the first one was 9, 9 mm, which is 9, 3 mm high, now. Even slimmer than the 36 mm case which is 9, 4 mm high! The MUT Moon 36: The water resistance doesn't change. It is 50 meters...Story

Jaeger-Lecoultre Vintage Watches and Patina. Let's see some marvels.

Avatar

Patina is a vast subject of discussion. Some hate it, others love it. In the heart of the discussion, the lovers will be attracted by the soul of the patina, while the others will say it is all about rust, discoloration... I for one will say that if the patina is homogeneous, it is very much my cup of tea...Story

The "Reverso, Intemporelle depuis 1931" exhibition has just opened in Paris and will run until the 24th of December at the 15 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The organisation of this event by Jaeger-Lecoultre is excellent news for several reasons. First of all, it is good to see a major watchmaking event being held in Paris...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Duomètre Unique Travel Time. What about a dream version?

Avatar
amanico
Ok, let's say that you are in charge of the Duomètre development, and that you have to work on the Duomètre Unique Travel Time. You are asked to make a new version of the Unique Travel Time, to be more precise. As you known there were three versions, already: The UTT started in 2013 with the Paris Boutique Edition ( 100 pieces ) Followed in 2014 by the Rose Gold version, unlimited, And in 2015 by the white gold chiseled dial ( 200 pieces ) I wouldn't touch the diameter of the case ( 42 mm ), I would just ... ...Story

When you think " Jaeger Lecoultre ", which is the first watch which comes to your mind?

Avatar
amanico
A long time ago, in the early 2000's, I read a well written article saying that for some brands, there were some cannibal watches: For example, Audemars Piguet is cannibalized by the Royal Oak, Blancpain by the Fifty Fathoms, Omega by the Speedmaster... And when it comes to Jaeger Lecoultre, by the Reverso. On this matter, I agree and disagree. Ok, if you are talking to somebody who is not passionate about watches he may give you this kind of answers...Story
