Brevity has never been a specialty of Jaeger-LeCoultre and their latest perpetual calendar the Master Grande Tradition Tourbillion Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel is no exception! After you give yourself a few moments to let the name sink in, the timepiece is a pure beauty and offers far more than you might imagine at first glance.
The gorgeous granual blue dial, modeled after the celestial canopy on a perfectly clear night is sure to be the first element to capture your attention. Further exploring the celestial beauty can be seen at 3 o’clock a perpetual moon phase, which is integrated with the perpetual calendar system.
At the watches 12 o’clock position you will see the traditional perpetual indications along with a complete zodiac calendar. At the 6 o’clock hour you can see the stunning in-house tourbillion with cylindrical balance springs. Unlike other tourbillion the Quantième Perpétuel unit does not have the negative effect on the power source like we you would typically find with a perpetual calendar. Additionally, unlike many tourbillion, the case is constructed entirely of titanium, making it lighter than most others and managing the power in the most effective way.
The pre-programming on this timepiece are simply outstanding allowing the calendar and moon phases to be adjusted simultaneously. From our experiences with a perpetual, this is a great feature.
With a 22k self-winding rotor showing a reproduction of the gold medal won by Jauger-LeCoultre in the 1889 Paris Universal Exhibition, the Quantième Perpétuel is a watch to be worn.
Enjoy the de Boulle Experience.
