The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar
Jaeger-LeCoultre launched the new Master Calendar in stainless steel with a meteorite dial at SIHH 2015.
The new Master Calendar of Jaeger-LeCoultre is distinguished by the virtues and indeed the very face of astronomy. Endowed with all the attributes that have forged the success of this line, it is also imbued with a seductive appeal exercising its own laws of gravity, thanks to the choice of meteorite stone to compose its dial.
On this new watch, the strange and fascinating meteorite stone used for the dial shakes up the traditionally pure, understated aesthetic of the Master Calendar.¬† It is composed of a single block of meteorite which comes from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
The unusual choice of material brings a fresh twist to Jaeger-LeCoultre‚Äôs Master collection, which derives inspiration from classic elegant vintage models.
Calendar-related indications are among the most useful a watch can offer. Representing the iconic calendar complication, the complete calendar of the Master Calendar model displays the perpetual calendar by means of a long hand tipped with a moon crescent sweeping around a scale around the dial rim graduated from 1 to 31.
The cleverly mastered dial architecture ensures immediate and pleasing readings of the information, with hours and minutes shown by dauphine hands and small seconds at 6 o‚Äôclock.
Everything is governed by a will to achieve the right balance between watchmaking expertise, aesthetic elegance and optimal comfort. With a 39 mm-diameter, this 10.6 mm-thick case is designed to adapt to the curve of any wrist. Its subtle discretion could easily make one forget the considerable efforts deployed by the master artisans in fitting an automatic movement with a full calendar inside such a pleasantly sized case.
The sapphire crystal case-back of the Master Calendar reveals the intricate workings of Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 866 and its delicate finishes testifying to infinite patience.
The new Master Calendar remains true to its initial philosophy of setting an aesthetically harmonious and perfectly readable stage for time in its entirety.
