Master watchmakers Jaeger-LeCoultre has carved a legacy of fine marvels and brilliant craftsmanship. In a new breakthrough from the brand, they have introduced their first ever ultra-thin automatic, perpetual calendar watch with the Master Ultra Thin Perpetual. Its case is as thin as 9.2mm and houses the caliber 868, the ultra-thin automatic perpetual calendar movement. Despite the three counters displaying the perpetual calendar displays, the layout is simple, minimalistic and elegant. Patrons can choose from three versions: 18K pink gold case (39mm diameter) with an eggshell-white dial, 18K white gold version with a grained, silver-toned dial and a steel model with a sunburst, silver-toned dial. All it takes is one press of the single corrector on the side of the case to move the perpetual calendar one day forward.
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Master Ultra Thin Perpetual is a testimony to the label’s prowess and foresight. The sophisticated mechanism of the watch which takes into account the unequal length of the months and automatically adjusts itself every four years to account for the leap year further drives this point home. It is no surprise as the brand is known for its pocket watches with a perpetual calendar which they have been producing since the 20th century.
