SIHH 2013: Jaeger-LeCoultre - Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel Jubilee

| No comment
Inspired by its 19th century perpetual calendars, Jaeger-LeCoultre launches at the Salon International de l'Haute Horlogerie 2013 one of its finest complications within the Master Grande Tradition line: the Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel. Dedicated to collectors and devotees of the watchmaking art, it pays tribute to Antoine LeCoultre and to the 180 years of the Manufacture by brilliantly rising to an authentic mechanical feat.
The watch, equipped with a flying (or cantilevered) tourbillon and a perpetual calendar, has been created in respect for the noblest watchmaking traditions and is in tune with the quest for absolute precision treasured by the founder of the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre.

Within a large 42 mm case, Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 985 beats to the rhythm of a flying tourbillon and is equipped with a cylindrical balance-spring, forming an ensemble guaranteeing exceptional precision timing performances. The tourbillon is a major feat in itself. Its grade 5 titanium carriage, its large 14-carat balance and its cylindrical balance-spring developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre create an impression of levitation: the tourbillon appears to be suspended in mid-air at the heart of the movement.
Its new extra-white platinum case pays tribute to the 19th century and draws inspiration from the style codes characterising pocket-watches. Its array of design details reflects these same codes: hour-markers, a traditional minute circle, and a silver-toned grained dial finish. 

The sapphire crystal serves to admire the hand-crafted decorations reflecting a profound respect for traditional watchmaking. The 22-carat gold oscillating weight bears a reproduction of the gold medal that Jaeger-LeCoultre won at the 1889 Paris Universal Exposition in recognition of its horological expertise and its spirit of invention. 
Issued in an 180-piece limited series, the watch with its aesthetic historical inspiration endowed with the latest technological breakthroughs daringly celebrates the 180 years of Jaeger-LeCoultre history.
