Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Sphérotourbillon is now equipped with Moonphase accurate to almost four millennia

At the 25th annual Salon International d la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) taking place in Geneva this week, Swiss luxury watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre has launched an exciting new offering from its Duomètre Family. You might remember that a couple of years back, Jaeger-LeCoultre has introduced the Duomètre Sphérotourbillon, which was very well received by the world of horology. The new edition of the Duomètre Sphérotourbillon Moon presents the very complicated mechanism in a very interesting and prominent display. In fact, the timepeice is not only beautiful to look at, but also comes with a very complicated movement boasting a bi-axial Sphérotourbillon with an added moon-phase indicator.

The Sphérotourbillon is one of Jaeger-LeCoultre‘s finest inventions, together with the Gyrotourbillon. This watch is based on two major innovations, both included in its name: the Duomètre and the Sphérotourbillon. Given the amount of mechanicals inside, the Duomètre Sphérotourbillon Moon contains a lot within a 42 mm x 14 mm platinum case making it a very attractive watch to wear. The watch boasts a three-quarter dial with a lateral opening at 9 o’clock that reveals the Sphérotourbillon. The main time sub dial is at 3 o’clock, and is tastefully constructed with rose gold hour markers and numerals with feuilles hands. The dial also circumscribes the moon phase, made of lapis lazuli, a deep-blue stone that was widely used as an oil-base in frescoes during the Renaissance. That is not all. Most Jaeger-LeCoultre perpetual calendars have a moon phase discrepancy of one day every 122 years. However, this Duomètre is different because when it is set, the moon phase is accurate to 3,887 years. What a piece of engineering! it will be made in a limited series of 75 pieces but the pricing is yet to be announced.
