Grande Tradition Tourbillon cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel IN ROSE GOLD.

Jaeger-LeCoultre presented one of their most advanced complications in the Master Grande Tradition series at the show – a watch for the really dedicated collectors. According to the producer, it has the most precise perpetual calendar in the market.

42 mm, rose gold, and a tourbillon that appears to be defying gravity and hanging from thin air in the middle of the watch’s face. The perpetual calendar perfectly tells the day, date, month and year as well as the moon’s phases.

The hands with their “Dauphine design” perfectly match the watch’s classic lines. The sapphire glass in the back of the case proudly shows off the movement and the beautiful 22 carat gold rotor, modeled after the gold medal that Jaeger-LeCoultre was awarded in 1889 at the Paris Universal Exposition for their inventions in the art of watchmaking.

The movement is Jaeger-LeCoultre’s own Calibre 985, made, assembled and decorated by hand. It has a 48-hour power reserve and is made out of 431 separate pieces. The case is 13,1 millimeters thick, has a 42 mm diameter and is waterproof to 50 meters.
