In a new interpretation of Jaeger-LeCoultre's revolutionary Dual-Wing movement, the Duomètre Unique Travel Time watch reflects the Manufacture's technical expertise in the field of dual-time zone watches.
For this new movement, the Dual-Wing is divided into two mechanisms: the first, to the right, is dedicated to local time and the second, to the left, displays an additional time zone. Each mechanism has 50 hours of power reserve, and, in the search for absolute ease of use, the same crown can be used to wind both barrels. The day-night indicator, in the form of a globe, and hour disc are positioned at 6 o'clock for easy reading and the two counters are arranged symmetrically, giving this watch a perfect balance.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 383, revealed through the sapphire crystal of the backcase, is finished completely by hand. The back also bears the engraved names of cities corresponding to 24 time zones.
The Duomètre Unique Travel Time watch in 18K white gold is a limited edition of 100 copies, and was specially created for the opening of the Jaeger-LeCoultre boutique in Paris' Place Vendôme. On the dial, the numbers 7 and 9 are specially applied in red to pay tribute to the Jaeger-LeCoultre Boutique.
Diameter is 42 mm. Thickness is 13.65 mm.
