The new Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon Enamel features a new tourbillon movement and a new-look date counter.
They form a balanced pair on this watch, produced in a limited series of 50 pieces. In an elegant case from the Master Ultra Thin collection, the famous Jaeger‑LeCoultre Caliber 978 has been reconceived both technically and aesthetically. In terms of finishes, the sunray-effect sides of the case really stand out, as does the light and graceful gold oscillating weight. As always, one’s gaze is captured by the endlessly fascinating spectacle of the tourbillon, fittingly placed in an aperture at six o’clock.
A Jaeger‑LeCoultre tourbillon
The Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon Enamel gives us a glimpse of the watchmaking expertise of the Manufacture. With an almost tangible quality under its transparent sapphire crystal, the tourbillon showcases its acrobatic dexterity with rare precision on a blue and white gold backdrop, revealing the details of its exceptional finishes. In an eternal dance, Jaeger‑LeCoultre’s emblematic tourbillon marks out the time in a way that is both precise and precious.
With the Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon Enamel, fine watchmaking has taken a step forward in terms of refinement. The arrow of the small seconds hand indicates 60 numerals as it makes its way around the dial, a true demonstration of excellence. For the artists and artisans of the Manufacture’s Rare Handcrafts (“Métiers Rares®”), the Master Ultra Thin line remains an endless source of inspiration. This new model will win over anyone who loves precision, as every detail is heightened in a pure expression of sophistication. Like the hand-guilloché dial that blends in with a beautiful blue enamel background. Or the perfectly proportioned white gold case, with its 40 mm diameter. Or the slender hour markers, specially redesigned for this limited edition, like a natural extension of timeless and understated Dauphine hands.
Jaeger‑LeCoultre’s Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon Enamel is a perfect example of the exceptional expertise of the Manufacture in the Vallée de Joux. In terms of both function and form, the watch is characterized by the attention paid to every last detail, with the extreme precision of its movement complementing the extreme precision of its design.
