Jaeger-LeCoultre looks to the stars at SIHH 2015
A tribute to astronomy
Unveiling its series of novelties at SIHH 2015, Jaeger-LeCoultre stole the show with its presentation of elegant timepieces. Inspired by the skies over the Vallée de Joux, the birthplace of Maison Jaeger-LeCoultre, the movements of the heavenly bodies are marked in the complications of the watches. Similarly, the materials chosen for the watch faces reflect the magical qualities of the stars: Meteorite stone and lapis lazuli were used for their deep connections to astronomy and impart a bit of magic to their wearers, linking them to the skies. The full collection includes:
Inspired by the passage of the constellations of the Northern Hemisphere, this model displays the months of the year on a sky-chart, while the star-shaped hand blazes a trail across the firmament of the watch's face.
Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication
With the creation of this timepiece, Jaeger-LeCoultre pushes its watchmaking expertise to the limits. It features a triple complication that blends haute horlogerie with advanced technology.
Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpetuel
This watch features an upper dial in mother-of-pearl with perpetual calendar indications. But the real focal point of the watch is its flying tourbillon fitted with a cylindrical balance-spring, which ensures that it will keep excellent time.
Set against a watch face made of meteorite stone, this is the crownpiece of the Jaeger-LeCoultre SIHH 2015 presentation. The watch also includes function such as pointer-type date display, and apertures for the day, month and moon phases.
