Not every watchmaker can pull off an ultra-thin timepiece, and the ones that do are the ones to keep an eye out for. Jaeger-LeCoultre is one of the first luxury watch maison’s to prove its mettle in the ultra-thin domain and this year they’ve got something very exquisite to offer their enthusiasts; the new Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon watch in pink gold.
Released earlier this year at SIHH 2019, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon in pink gold takes its inspiration from the early ultra thin models, such as, the roundness of its case, the strong presence of its hour-markers, the sophistication of its dauphine hands; the finishing of its movement, and of course the highlight being the endless ballet of the Tourbillon and its moving titanium carriage.
For this model, Jaeger-LeCoultre has gone with an utterly sober 40mm pink gold case with a thickness of just 10.77mm. It’s extremely well executed, and looks great on the wrist. The eggshell-coloured dial adds volume in the display with large gilded appliqué hour-markers and the razor-sharp dauphine hands. You’ll also love how gracefully the hour markers taper off at 6 o clock and disappear altogether to make room for the Tourbillon, with its new gold bridge. The overall look is balanced by the generosity of a hand-stitched brown alligator leather strap.
Fitted with an in-house self-winding 978G Calibre, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon in pink gold benefits from a 45-hour power reserve. The Master Collection for men unites everything that has always distinguished Jaeger-LeCoultre as a watch manufacturer: exceptional finesse, state-of-the-art engineering, and classic watchmaking expertise.”
