For the eighth edition of Only Watch, a biennial charity auction benefitting research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents an absolute masterpiece. Introducing the new Master Ultra Thin Perpetual in white gold with a hand-guillochéd chestnut colour enamel dial. This exceptional and unparalleled project supports the battle against a devastating myopathy that affects 1 in 3000 male births on the planet by funding research.
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Master Ultra Thin collection enjoys the reputation of an elegant and discreet watch with a subtle vintage feel. That being said this new timepece piece highlights the talents of the Manufacture’s artisans who work together in the Rare Handcrafts™ (Métiers Rares®) workshop to retain the aesthetics of the collection.
The Master Ultra Thin Perpetual Enamel Chestnut captivates as soon as the gaze lands on its sparkling yet warm translucent enamel chestnut coloured dial. Along with the hours, minutes, the date counter at 9 o’clock and the days of the week at 3 o’clock, this 39mm hand-guillochéd dial features a new display of the perpetual calendar at 12 o’clock. At 6 o’clock there is a subtle moon phase that simultaneously indicates the moon’s waxing and waning phases in both hemispheres. The full splendour of the sunburst guilloché radiates on the dial, providing the Master Ultra Thin Perpetual Enamel Chestnut with an impression of relief and depth. The guillochage work was carried out by hand on both the dial and the counters by Jaeger-LeCoultre’s artisans, who bring all of their expertise to bear with rare precision, working with age-old machines and tools in the purest watchmaking tradition.
Beating inside the watch is a new Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 868A/2 with automatic winding.
A unique piece to help support a noble cause.
