Jaeger LeCoultre has refreshed its Master Control range for this year. Here’s the details from the press office.
With its 40-millimetre diameter, outwardly sloping bezel and dynamically curved lugs, the Master Control case exudes a relaxed and understated elegance. On the dials, Jaeger‑LeCoultre’s designers have reinterpreted the Maison’s classical codes in a streamlined and modern style, in order to highlight each model’s complications. The applied indexes add refinement, their elongated triangular shape echoed by the Dauphine hands. Uniting the collection, sunray brushing animates the silvery-white background colour.
The Master Control collection features emblematic functions such as the classic date, the triple calendar complication, the legendary Geographic and for the first time a chronograph associated with a triple calendar display and a moon-phase.
With the goal of improving reliability, power reserve and long-term performance, Jaeger‑LeCoultre’s engineers have comprehensively revised and re-engineered its calibres. The improvements, include a silicon escapement, a redesigned barrel and various energy-saving enhancements. The result is an increased power reserve to as much as 70 hours and an enhanced overall performance and reliability. Like all Jaeger‑LeCoultre timepieces, the Master Control watches carry an 8-year warranty in addition to the 1,000 Hours Control certification.
There is a new French made leather strap option, which is designed to gain a patina over time. The Master Control range starts at £6000, with the rose gold – called Pink Gold by JLC – starts at £23,000.
