This Jaeger-LeCoultre product is just like its detailed name, full-featured and accurate. It cleverly combines the functions of a flying tourbillon and a perpetual calendar to reproduce the trajectory of the celestial body: the earth revolves around the sun, the moon phase profit and loss, and the ten stars. French surrealist poet Paul éluard once wrote such a line: ‘La terre est bleue comme une orange The earth is as blue as orange’. And the Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel superb traditional perpetual calendar cylindrical tourbillon tourbillon master series watch is as inclusive as the blue sky.
This new watch interpretation of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s 2015 cosmic starry sky in a very aesthetic way. The dark blue grained dial invites you into the mysterious and vast sky. The moon phases are fixed discs made of lapis lazuli, showing that the word lapis lazuli is used in Persian to describe the blue azure of the sky. The phases of the moon are shown on the dial and are indicated by hands.
The new Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel superb traditional perpetual calendar cylindrical tourbillon tourbillon master series watch, the most noticeable place is the zodiac sign display at 12 o’clock. This watch can indicate the signs of the zodiac, the trajectory of the sun in a year, the year corresponding to the revolution of the earth around the sun, and the profit and loss of the moon, month and week. A window showing the laws of the universe’s reciprocating cycle makes us want to find out.
The magnitude of the energy required to power the perpetual calendar function is not hard to imagine. The perpetual calendar device can correctly indicate the day of the week, month and year, taking into account the number of days per month and leap year. The interaction between a series of large and small gear trains equipped with the perpetual calendar function often affects the accuracy of the watch. However, this watch is equipped with a super tourbillon developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre, which allows it to maintain maximum accuracy under all circumstances.
All the calendar information is clear and this is the second unique feature of the watch’s perpetual calendar function. With just a glance, you can read the traditional day, month, and date information on three small dials, and a moon phase display at 3 o’clock.
In addition, this watch designed by Jaeger-LeCoultre is equipped with a single button for easy operation and adjustment. All time indications have been set in the movement. Just adjust the watch to the correct date, and the month, year and moon phase will automatically display correctly. Therefore, if the watch remains in normal operation, no manual adjustment of the watch is required until March 1, 2100.
The tourbillon equipped with this watch is only fixed by the base, which is a true technical crystal, rather than a virtual watch. The titanium frame is equipped with a gold balance wheel and a cylindrical hairspring developed by the Jaeger-LeCoultre team. The hairspring only performs concentric back and forth movements to ensure that the watch is accurate and reliable. Its small size and light structure make it seem to be suspended in the air. The layout design of the watch also emphasizes this visual effect, and the multi-layer dial presents a three-dimensional impression. The gorgeous tourbillon spins as if without restraint.
Whether it is the classic and harmonious appearance design, or the internal mechanism of the exquisite craftsmanship of the Grand Workshop, it is the epitome of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s brilliant history. This watch is also equipped with the fastest complication-a balance spring that oscillates 8 times per second, and the slowest complication-a century-long turntable that takes a hundred years. To combine the two in a watch driven by a self-winding mechanical movement requires a certain rich imagination and superb professional craftsmanship. This highly expressive design serves only one purpose: to give the person who chooses this watch an accurate timepiece that can accompany him for life.
This watch uses the classic elements of the brand in its design. The white gold case is reminiscent of an antique pocket watch, while the traditional minute scale ring, princess-style hands, grained dial, and hand decoration embody unparalleled advanced watchmaking techniques. The Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel has another delightful look: the 22K gold rotor is clearly visible through the case back. The rotor is finely engraved with the gold medal obtained by Jaeger-LeCoultre at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1889. This brand new watch embodies exquisite craftsmanship is indeed a rich artistic connotation. Every amazing complication, even every tiny and delicate part, is the wisdom of traditional fine watchmaking, and it is the best embodiment of human craftsmanship.
