The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master is considered to be one of the classic wristwatches, featuring a well-proportioned case with a medium-width bezel to the dial. Made by the watch manufacturer Jaeger-LeCoultre from the town of Le Sentier in Switzerland, the company manufactures the Master line since 2004. In this case, the manufacturers are guided by the classic predecessors in terms of design. The scope of the collection is enormous and is divided into three sections. Depending on the model, the chronographs and watches of the Master collection are equipped with every conceivable complication. In this collection are the Ultra Thin watches, the Master Control and the Grande Tradition. The cases are made of red gold, platinum, stainless steel, white gold and titanium. Different calibers were installed in the different models. Jaeger-LeCoultre's Master Control Date is simple and classy at the same time, and the inner workings were designed to be quite special.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master - exceptionally noble and beautiful
The oscillating weight of the Master Control Date was made of 22-karat gold and the movement was constructed very elaborately. The ceramic ball bearing from the automatic movement optimally improves the reliability of the movement. The shock resistance and reliability were improved by the balance bridge. The dial is particularly striking due to the black variant of the sunburst. The case height of the watch turns out very flat. The signature feature of the collection consists of wedge-shaped indices, tapering inwards, located on the dial. The design of Master models is characterized by clean lines, thus this series appears as very simple, but noble.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Company
As early as 1903, the manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre, which was founded in 1833, developed the flattest mechanical movement in the world. In 1929, Jaeger-LeCoultre 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 art. The entry model into the world of fine mechanics shines with all the attributes of a real Swiss watch. The automatic caliber 899 is set in motion by the golden oscillating weight with 219 individual parts. Today, a part of the Master collection is the Memovox alongside the Vulcain Cricket. Like the Cricket model, the Memovox also has separate barrels. While the Cricket model has one crown, and the watch and alarm are wound in different directions, the Memovox model is set in motion with two separate crowns. Today, all Memovox models are automatically driven and are offered in stainless steel and red gold, each with a light or a black dial.
