Jaeger-LeCoultre just presented two new ultra thin models that well express the beauty of classic and minimalist design.
Similar to the successful 40 mm Master Grande Ultra Thin, the Jaeger Le-Coultre Master Ultra Thin does not replace it but introduces a smaller case with a diameter of 38.5 mm which makes the watch even more elegant. We are sure that many purists, concerned for the apparently unstoppable trend of increasingly larger cases, will be happy for the size chosen by Jaeger-LeCoultre for this model. The thickness is 7.58 mm.
On the gold version (ref. 1272520), the dial adopts a warm eggshell white shade that makes a perfect match with the pink gold case; while the steel model (ref. 1278420) features a sunburst silver-toned dial with polished rhodiumed hour-markers. The Jaeger-LeCoultre signature at 12 o'clock is topped by the JLC emblem, while the small seconds appear in a subdial at 6 o'clock.
The Master Ultra Thin 38.5 mm is powered by the automatic Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 896 whose balance beats at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour.
Even thinner (just 7.4 mm), the Jaeger Le-Coultre Master Ultra Thin Date has a diameter of 40 mm and it is available in polished pink gold only (ref. 1282510) with an eggshell white shade.
The dial features dauphine hands for the hours and minutes with a central seconds hand. A discreet but easily readable aperture at 6 o'clock shows the date by means of a rotating disc. The modified Calibre 899 also beats at 4Hz with a power reserve of 43 hours.
