In 1907, Jaeger-LeCoultre made the first chronograph that laid the foundation for it. At the same year, Edmond Jaeger, a Paris business man, created the first thinner watch in conjunction with Jacques-David LeCoultre. This thinner watch has a graceful look and was made with the most delicate technique which could only be achieved by brands’ cooperation. Now Jaeger-LeCoultre rolled out its Master Ultra Thin Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon and Grand Complication, to verify its insight into the future development of watch.
Jaeger-LeCoultre team is made of a researches with unique insights and owing to this team, Master Ultra-Thin Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon made it ok to meet the public one year after it rolled out the Master Ultra-Thin Jubilee. It is famous for its advanced technologies and would definitely intrigue players’ interests. And it indeed did so. Master Ultra-Thin Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon was derived from the inspiration which come from the two symbolic researches on complication watches, and finally become the thinner watch in the peer, with an amazing 7.9 mm.
Six patents have been filed during developing Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon and six of them are a brand-new patents. The whole development is led under the idea of unique innovation and excellent performance which successfully achieved the goal without reducing its reliability.
Traditional tourbillon will hide some components but Jaeger-LeCoultre make everything on the center of watch visible to you. And in order to achieve that goal, they got rid of traditional design and developed a brand-new tourbillon and filed patent for it. The watch is fitted with flying tourbillon. This amazing feat can make rotor and balance spring visible to us. Swing rotor and balance spring on a special setting make it looks puzzle. But with stunning innovation, designers not only make the watch look vivid and interesting, they also make the watch thinner at the same time.
In order to achieve those development, designers have to reformulate components and developed a brand-new balance spring. All the features on this tourbillon aim at achieving precision, which is the ultimate goal in this industry.
Tourbillon incorporated brand culture and techniques and set off Jaeger-LeCoultre’s proficient skills and advantages to its best. However, the whole process, apart from art and science, reflects humans’ adventurous spirits on various tests during the making process. When facing there difficulties, watch-makers take them as an honor to conquer them. Every excellent tourbillon shows movement collector the dedicated efforts and outstanding watch-making techniques.
Highly-efficient Winding System
Workshop’s dedication on optimizing the watch formulated and idea and developed it into a excellent automatic winding system. In order to gain the maximum space on the case, winding system is fitted with a platinum platinum rotor and everything is visible through the little aperture. With the movement of your hand, platinum will revolves around the bezel and thus winding up the main spring.
Running Minute Repeater
Minute repeater has an important place in the watch industry and would be a big challenge for those designers who purse the best sound and forever precision and reliability.
Minute repeater system is complicate, thus making it a peak in the watch circle. In 1870, Jaeger-LeCoultre decided to develop repeater movement and then began its developing on this old technique. Processing with manual and mechanical way, watch will become more precise and reliable. So far to now, Jaeger-LeCoultre has designed and produced 200 movemnts with minute repeater. It keeps exploring this complicate techniques and rolled out new movements and in the new movement, the main idea is: reformulating and designing minute repeater and make it thinner.
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s tradition provides continuing inspirations for the workshop and make them break the traditional limits and pursue the best of the best. Under such creed, Jaeger-LeCoultre takes the lead in the thinner watch and super complication watch fields.
