Jaeger LeCoultre’s Art of Precision
Understand and learn the art of precision with Jaeger-LeCoultre and their newest piece into the collection, the Master Ultra Thin Moon Enamel.
Rooted in the Vallée de Joux, bordering the Swiss Jura Mountains, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s history comes from the tradition of precision bound up with a profoundly authentic artistic élan. For Jaeger-LeCoultre, the quintessence of the watchmaker’s art lies in achieving a perfect balance between precision techniques and the deft craftsmanship required to perform them. From its calibre to its case, every Jaeger-LeCoultre watch is entirely designed, manufactured and assembled under one roof.
Almost 180 specialist skills and trades are assembled in our manufacture, along with nearly 1,250 calibres from the simplest to the most sophisticated and some 400 patents.
The new Master Ultra Thin will charm any watch-enthusiast or devotee with its round shape and pure lines. The watch features an extremely thin case and highlight the arts of guillochage and enamelling, two of the Rare Handcrafts (“Métiers Rares®”) which have been kept alive for generations at the Manufacture in the Vallée de Joux.
The guilloché enamel exteriors of this new Master Ultra Thin Enamel model is a testament to precision and sophistication, where blue is featured in all its majesty – a deep, intense midnight blue which achieves perfect harmony with the case of this limited edition.
Limited to only 100 pieces total in the series, the new Mater Ultra Thin Moon Enamel proudly expresses its character in a pure and refined watchmaking style, translating directly into a new hand-guilloché blue enamel dial, new hour-markers, a new polished moon, and a new engraved counter. The case itself is in white gold and conceals its engines, with an automatic mechanical movement with a 70-hour power reserve.
The Master Ultra Thin Moon Enamel features a new moon phase setting, one that has been redesigned with painstaking attention to detail. When the moon is full, its’ perfectly round and polished white disk comes to rest on an exquisite stellar background.
There is a new design of the hour-markers, which are longer and split into two at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. In an aperture at 6 o’clock, the counter that houses the polished moon phase has been engraved, a way of bringing out the numerals depicting the date. Visually, the effect is one that combines presence and discretion.
This emblematic piece showcases the expertise of the of the Jaeger-LeCoultre master watchmakers, artists and artisans.
