Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Collection comes with Grey Dials and Pink Gold Cases this SIHH 2017. JLC revolutionizes the construction of the Duometre collection of watches. How they do it is simple, while most “common” watches have all their components revolving around the main movement, JLC Duometre splits them up, by giving the complications their own barrel mechanism. As a result, the complications and the time only share the case. This means that the complications cannot interfere with the running of the time; Jaeger LeCoultre calls this DualWing®.
The Jaeger LeCoultre Duometre watches boast a distinct style, practical complications, and compelling movement architecture. The three Duometre watches are the Duometre Sepherotourbillon, the Duometre Quantieme Lunaire and the Duometre Chronograph.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Spherotourbillon Magnetite Grey
Jaeger LeCoultre Spherotourbillon is has a fascinating dial design with the retrograde date indicator leaping out, while the offset formed timekeeping dial. The Spherotourbillon escapement is in the heart of the movement. The dial features a multiplex look with a second sub-dial at the 6 o’clock position and a second time slot indicator at 12 o’clock position. Dual-Wing operating principle are designed as two separate displays for the pair of power reserve indicators.
The case is made of 18k pink gold and 42mm in diameter, while the drak grey dial surface presents a grainy surface. In the multi-axis Spherotourbillon system has precise synchronization with a different source can be achieved effectively by the aid of a small seconds hand working with the Flyback principle.
The Duomètre Sphérotourbillon is priced at $238,000 and is available now.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Quantieme Lunaire Magnetite Grey
The newest from the Duometre collection is the JLC Quantieme Lunaire model. As it’s name indicates, the watch carrys a design based on the depiction of functions related to the date (quantieme) and the moon (lunaire). Same as the other Duometre collection, there are two different power reserve indicators. This explains the design arrangement principle of handling time and other complication separately. The time keeping is displayed on a sub-dial at the 2 o’clock position. On the other side, sits a date and month sub-dial at the 10 o’clock position. The case is in 18k pink gold as well measuring 42mm and houses a magnetite grey dial.
The Duomètre Quantième Lunaire is the most affordable of the three watches, priced at $40,900. It is also available now.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Chronograph Magnetite Grey
Last but not least, the JLC Duometre Chronograph model. This watch is specifically designed to overcome the problem of accuracy in chronograph function watches. It is widely known that the gear train and the regulators meets far more pressure when the chronograph is engaged – resulting slight inaccuracy. Jaeger-Lecoultre solves this problem by separating the gear train and barrel system for time keeping and chronograph functions.
The time function is featured by a sub-dial located at 10 o’clock position, while the second hand glides at the center. The chronograph starts, stops, and resets via a single pusher located at two o’clock. Another sub-dial at 6 o’clock is a foudroyante (or “flying seconds”) gives the chronograph the capability to measure accurate stopped times.
Same as the other two touches, JLC Duometre Chronograph comes in Magnetite Grey dial and pink gold as well. The Duomètre Chronographe is priced at $47,200 and is available now.
