Jaeger-LeCoultre are continuing their run of sophisticated timepieces with the release of not one but three new models from their esteemed Duomètre line.
The Duomètre Sphérotourbillon, Duomètre Chronographe and Duomètre Quantième Lunaire watches will cater to those who demand technical performance and pure masculine aesthetic from their timing instruments.
The Duomètre Sphérotourbillon sports a striking design that proudly showcases the inner workings of a fine tourbillon which can be set with exacting precision.
Set next to the cutaway dial featuring ppaline magnetite grey and gold-plated appliques, a titanium cage conatins the intricate components that are contained around a second axis tilted at 20° – a move which enables the watch to defy the effects of gravity in all positions.
The movement which sits in a 42mm 18K pink gold case comes complements of an in-house manually wound mechanical heart, Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 382.
The striking visual attributes obtained from this movement includes the hours, minutes, and small seconds with flyback. There’s even a calendar with hand indication, 24-Hour reference time zone and the aforementioned spherical tourbillon.
A 50-hour power reserve feature is paired with a 50 meter water resistance rating. On the aesthetic front the watch is tied together with a hand swen alligator leather.
Flying the chronograph flag for the trio is the timepiece which proudly boasts Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Dual-Wing concept – a technical characteristic which helped the watchmaker earn a place in the highest echelons of artistic watchmaking.
The dial features a beautifully finished opaline magnetite grey hue which sits atop of the manually-wound in-house Calibre 380 movement that drives the hours, minutes, seconds alongside the chronograph hour and minute sub-dials. Two independent barrels also make up this timepiece, each with a 50-hour power reserve.
Holding it all securely in place is a 42mm rose gold case that affords up to 50 metres of water resistance. A matte chocolate brown leather strap polishes off the Chronographe perfectly.
Duomètre Quantième Lunaire
Jaeger-LeCoultre takes on one of the most elaborate calendar complications in the Quantième Lunaire, a timepiece which satisfies the need for day, date, month and the usual fair of timing information.
The Dual-Wing concept again makes an appearance here to provide precision timekeeping paired with a highly functional calendar feature.
The opaline magnetite grey dial boasts hours, minutes, seconds, calendar, and moon-phase displays all driven by Jaeger-LeCoultre’s mechanically wound Calibre 381 boasting a 50 hour power reserve.
This movement is set in a 42mm 18K pink gold case which boasts a 50 metre water resistance rating and is paired to a chocolate-brown alligator leather with matching 18-carat gold folding clasp.
