Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Chronographe

by

The Jaeger LeCoultre Duemetre Chronographe is an ingenious machinery that immediately stands out when you put it around your wrist. The beautiful design with the grey and golden rose color combination goes together with the multiple dials and the belt. You can’t miss it. Priced at a little over $40,000, this is a perfect piece of engineering produced by Jaeger that you don’t want to miss in your collection.

When you first look at the Jaeger LeCoultre Duometre Chronographe, without a doubt the design is the most striking thing. The color combination between rose gold for the edge of the dial and the deep grey of the inside of the dial is what makes it look so elegant and chic. Grey is usually regarded as a man’s color and combined with the warmer rose gold, it creates a warm image that can be worn with any outfit.

Another very important thing about the Jaeger LeCoultre Duometre Chronographe is the way in which the dial is constructed. Obviously the start is a small tourbillon with its own name, located on the right of the dial and which dictates how the other small dials are moving. It is called the Sphérotourbillon and it contains a spherical hairspring that helps it make one full rotation in 30 seconds and another tilted rotation at 20 degrees in half that, so in 15 seconds.

The entire watch is made up of over 400 pieces and they all move together in perfect precision so watching how the watch works is beautiful. There are two main dials here: the one in the left shows the time like a regular watch does and the one in the left is a chronograph counter. Down at the bottom of the dial, there is a third one that describes the foudroyante, as it is originally named, or the flying seconds. This dial measures the stopped times, down to 1/6th of a second. Its design is a bit different from the other ones in the dial because it is skeletonized. In the right and the left side of this particular subdial, if you closely, you can see the two power reserves, which are both for 50 hours.

The Jaeger LeCoultre Duometre Chronographe is a beautiful machine that is worth every penny. All the dials move in perfect unison and immediately stand out wherever you are and no matter the outfit you are wearing.

A rare collectible item issued in a very limited series of only 100 pieces, Master Minute Repeater “Grand Feu” Platinum (ref. 1646409) embodies two different worlds at the same time – modernism and tradition. While this model’s design is very simple, it is nevertheless interesting and elegant. The symmetrically positioned half circles situated in the Southern hemisphere of the dial break the milky white background and offer a view over two sides of the watch’s mechanism: the power reserve and the torque meter. The neat black alligator leather strap closing in a double folding clasp emphasizes the elegance of the white display and of the platinum crown.
