Some timepieces are designed to function with precision; some are meant to be aesthetically impressive. Jaeger Lecoultre wants to be both. And nothing perhaps embodies a Jaeger Lecoultre more than the Master Grande Tradition à Quantième Perpétuel 8 jours SQ. It’s a mouthful of a name but one that fits its physical appearance: an intricate work of engineering that features minute pieces functioning seamlessly in a perfectly symmetric casing. Its skeleton movement is hand-designed and covered with translucent blue enamel. The result is nothing short of spectacular both in motion and look. Impressively, its perpetual calendar is mechanically designed to function up to the year 2100. The Master Grande is a truly elegant timepiece for the most elegant parties you’ll ever attend. When you wear a Jaeger Lecoultre, you’re wearing beauty and precision in one piece.
Jaeger Lecoultre is available at Shreve & Co. in Portland, Oregon and San Francisco, California.
