However Jaeger-LeCoultre? It is not so evident an alternative. Outside watch-loving circles, not many people know the new or know how significant it is. Thus there’s a sense that you’re paying for more than just a brand name, a sense bolstered by the incredible detailing about the watch dial and movement. And that rotor? You get used to it. If anything, it becomes a unique personality trait over an annoyance. You won’t find that at an “engineered” watch.In reality, the new Master Control Date Stainless Steel reference 1548530 (to give it its full name) is the lowest priced Jaeger-LeCoultre men’s view at the brand’s whole selection, in #4,800. A Reverso Moderate comes in at #5,100 (the small Reverso versions are quartz-powered and geared toward women). The new Master Control also undercuts the previous entry-level and identically-named Master Control Date by #350. You can compare them for yourselves here. (As a side note, the simple fact that Jaeger-LeCoultre puts a #1,450 top on a steel bracelet — #6,600 over #5,150 — is slightly shocking) Comparing old and new Master Controls is intriguing. Line up these watches together and you will notice that, quite naturally, they have a lot in common. The same movement, for a beginning: the single barrel, in-house automated calibre 899/1 using 219 parts, beating at 4Hz. They utilize exactly the exact same 39mm case and crown as well.

But before I could start enjoying this watch, I had to do one thing: change the strap. Packaged using the Master Control Date is a dim blue alligator strap having a few padding up shirt and matching blue stitching. But, I found the strap to be extremely stiff and uncomfortable, with the cushioning unnecessary and wonky. I’m convinced it’d soften up a bit after a while wear, but the quality did not seem to match that of the opinion itself. Easy fix though. I snapped the watch onto a textured grey calf leather strap (from the HODINKEE Shop, if you will allow an unintentional but shameless plug) and it immediately felt right at home.Most of my friends are pretty utilised to seeing me appear areas with some new watch on my wrist that I’m obliged to wear to get a review (hard life, I know). Usually they don’t even take note, and very seldom do they comment on watches. This view though got tons of attention. For something comparatively understated and small, the Master Control Date is extremely striking and, even to the uninitiated, it looks like something particular. I even had non-watch buddies asking to try it on, which never happens.If you’re a longtime HODINKEE reader, it probably comes as no surprise that I actually dig this watch. But, even if you can’t pick a Case Study House out of a lineup, the Master Control Date’s layout should still be attractive. It’s easy to read, comfortable on the wrist, and also the subtle contrasts on the dial make it something you can look at repeatedly, finding something new every time.

The two counters are large and suitably spaced, evidence that in-house can be beneficial. The motion, even if well decorated, will stay concealed behind a closed back. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Chronograph Sector Dial is priced at EUR 8,300, to be compared to EUR 9,000 demanded for its conventional, non-sector dial up and 3-register version.The last watch in this collection may be a bit surprising at first, but it is based in an icon, the Master Geographic. This view provides passengers with a novel means of reading the second time zone. The aperture at the lower part of the dial displays the titles of 24 world cities, representing all the time zones. A crown set at 10 o’clock on the situation makes adjusting the index of the second time zone simplicity itself. A sort of simplified and functional world-time watch. While this kind of display is nothing historic, the mix with the sector style of this dial stays pleasant. It’s clean and not overloaded with indications.Indeed, in precisely the exact same strand as the chronograph, JLC decided to keep things simple here and also to concentrate only on the essentials, eliminating the hand-indicated date and power reserve indicator, which are normally placed on the top half of the dial. The foundation motion remains the same as other Geographic models, the in-house calibre 939B/1 (automatic, strong gold rotor, nice decoration, 4Hz frequency, 43 hours power reserve), with “1000 Hours Control” certification.

Secondly is your blued steel hand collection. The hand is slender and simple, however the hour and minute hands possess an open syringe form. They do resemble vintage hands together with the lume missing — there’s no denying that — but I believe they’re the right choice here. If they had been plain, slender hands, they’d feel dull and be tough to read; if they had been full of lume, they would be too big and dominate the general layout. Here they are wide, but mild. They tell the time, but they allow you admire the dial below. They’re unconventional, confident, but they are also great.Of class, as this is a Master Control view, there’s an in-house Jaeger-LeCoultre motion inside. The JLC grade 899/1 is an automatic movement with a 38-hour electricity reserve. It’s only 3.3mm thick and has 219 components total, using a balance beating at 4 Hz. It strikes a wonderful balance between being beautiful and being functional. The strong pink gold strand is a fantastic illustration of this, and completing throughout is quite nice. No mad bevels or anything like that, but a badly nice movement for a watch in this price range. In fact, it’d be challenging to find a much better one.This watch looks great in a situation or on a desk, but it’s when you set the thing on that it really begins to sing. The case size is just brilliant, and you actually start to appreciate that 8.5mm height after wearing it for a bit. The watch nearly seems to disappear on the wrist if you are typing in your desk or just walking around the city. Comfort is something that does not get talked about enough when assessing watches, and this is just one seriously comfy watch.
