Roughly a month prior to the SIHH in Geneva, where Richemont brands (a.o.) acquaint their curiosities with the press, retailers and customers, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents their Master Ultra Thin Moon Enamel as of now. Restricted to 100 pieces just, this watch includes a dial that is completely executed by hand by a couple of craftsmans prepared in Le Sentier, where the Jaeger-LeCoultre produce is located.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon Enamel
The Master Ultra Thin assortment is among our top picks, as we wrote in this article on their Master Ultra Thin Perpetual Calendar . Jaeger-LeCoultre utilizes the Master Ultra Thin not exclusively to show their hand-guilloché blue veneer dial yet in addition their moonphase marker. A hand-make combined with a mechanical complication.
The Master Ultra Thin Moon Enamel has a white gold 39mm case that is just 10.04mm in stature, henceforth the ‘Ultra Thin’ designator. Inside, we discover the JLC Caliber 925/2 development. A programmed development with a 70-hour power hold and, obviously, the moonphase complication.
I need to say that the main pictures that Jaeger-LeCoultre shows us look quite amazing. The dial is essentially dazzling with its guillochage technique. The ‘cocktail’ theme is wonderful, particularly in this blue tone. Additionally give close consideration to the moon stage circle and the date plate with its numbers in bas-help. Likewise new on the dial are the twofold hour markers at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. The high cleaned dauphine hands give a pleasant difference to the blue veneer dial. The whole composition is just delightful, at any rate on the photos we’ve seen up until this point. I can’t stand by to see and deal with this watch in the substance one month from now during the SIHH.
If this is the new course that Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new CEO Catherine Rénier has at the top of the priority list, I am considerably more eager to see their other new watches during the SIHH 2019 and following years. It appears as though they are focusing on a somewhat unique crowd with these Master Ultra Thin watches than the 50-year old dental specialist driving a Volvo they did in the past. This Ultra Thin Moon Enamel is certainly something that will interest a bigger and maybe more extensive crowd. The cost isn’t to be formally communicated yet.
