A few watch signatures, if any, can match the exquisite design and movement of a Jaeger Lecoultre, and none perhaps exhibit the watch’s technical perfection than its Master Collection. The collection features complications encased in white or pink gold, highlighted by its patented Jaeger Lecoultre Calibre 978. It’s an automatic tourbillion mounted on a titanium carriage and featuring a high-inertia balance for precision time-keeping. A tourbillion is an additional part in the movement to counter the pull of gravity; thus, the watch maintains a consistent perpetual movement. You can get a glimpse of the ingenious design through a pinhole of the watch at six o’ clock. Fancy the movement as it appears to assume a life on its own, while lending a sophisticated engineering style to your watch.
Jaeger Lecoultre is available at Shreve & Co. in Palo Alto, California.
