The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master - particularly noble and beautiful
The oscillating weight of the Master Control Date was made of 22-carat gold and the movement was very elaborately designed. The ceramic ball bearing of the automatic movement improves the reliability of the movement optimally. The shock resistance and reliability were improved by the balance bridge. The black sunburst version of the dial is particularly striking. The case height of the watch is very flat. The signature feature of the collection consists of wedge-shaped, inwardly tapered clues that are attached to the dial. The design of the Master models is characterized by clear lines, s o this series is very simple, but noble.
As early as 1903, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture, founded in 1833, developed the thinnest mechanical movement in the world. In 1929, Jaeger-LeCoultre's watchmakers produced the world's smallest hand-wound movement, consisting of 98 parts. The Master Collection are precious watches with a sophisticated technique of Swiss watchmaking artistry. The entry-level model into the world of precision mechanics shines with all the attributes of a genuine Swiss watch. The automatic caliber 899 is set in motion with 219 individual parts by the golden oscillating weight. Today, part of the Master collection is the Memovox alongside the Vulcain Cricket, and like the Cricket, the Memovox also has separate barrels. While the Cricket model has a crown, the watch and the alarm clock are wound in different directions, the Memovox model starts with two separate crowns. Today, all Memovox models are automatically driven and are available in stainless steel and red gold, each with a light or black dial.
