The annual Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) is, as the title would imply, a series predominantly made up of watchmakers producing watches which signify the top echelons of watchmaking. Six-figure price tags are a dime a dozen on the display floor. When I initially watched the new Master Control Date using a sector dial in Jaeger-LeCoultre’s booth, I knew I needed to find some time with it in my wrist, but once every conversation I had with collectors, journalists, and other industry buddies kept coming back into a $5,700 time-and-date watch, I knew we had something special on our hands.Openworked tourbillons and decimal striking watches are great, sure, but when we’re being honest, they’re show pieces more than anything else. Very few will ever be produced, and very few will ever actually be worn out-and-about. I’m not saying I do not like these kinds of watches — I find them endlessly interesting and lust-worthy — just that I find watches such as this Jaeger-LeCoultre far more persuasive in the long run. The idea was to make a line of watches which represented the worth of pure, classic watchmaking, with a concentration on simple aesthetics, performance, hi-tech, and long-term functionality. Along with the initial assortment of watches, Jaeger-LeCoultre started its “1,000 Hours Control” quality check program, which subjects completed watches to a six-week program of evaluations.

Both counters are big and suitably spaced, proof that in house can be beneficial. Indeed, inside the 40mm case is the calibre 751G, an automatic, incorporated chronograph movement with column-wheel and comfy power book of 65 hours (2 barrels, 4Hz frequency, 235 parts, with “1000 Hours Control” certificate). The motion, even if nicely decorated, will remain concealed behind a closed back. This view provides travellers with a novel way of reading the next time zone. The aperture at the lower section of the dial displays the titles of 24 world cities, representing all of the time zones. A crown placed at 10 o’clock on the situation makes adjusting the index of this second time zone simplicity itself. A sort of simplified and practical world-time watch. Although this type of display is nothing historic, the combination with the sector style of the dial stays pleasant. It is clean and never saturated in indications.Indeed, in precisely the same strand as the chronograph, JLC decided to keep things simple here and also to focus only on the principles, eliminating the hand-indicated date and power reserve indicator, which are normally placed on the top half of the dial.

And then there’s the cost. At $5,700, this view presents greater value than any other watch I saw at the SIHH. As soon as I was told5,700, I thought there might be a error. Sure, $5,700 remains a critical amount of money (even if we are referring to watches), but for what you get here, it’s considerably more than a reasonable ask.25 decades ago, that the highly-respectable manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre innovated maybe not using a brand new complication or a new substance, but by implementing the “1000 Hours Control” procedure, an in-house certificate comprising a string of radical tests to ensure that the watches are dependable and precise. As a tribute to this anniversary, Jaeger-LeCoultre has created a whole new collection of Master Control models, with magnificent sector dials. Now on Monochrome we have a look at those 3 watches: the Master Chronograph, the Master Geographic and the Master Control Date (and just wait until you find the costs…)A watch is a movement, a pedigree, a title but mainly, it’s a design (who would like to wear a badly designed watch anyhow…) That is where Jaeger-LeCoultre wins big with the newest Master Control Collection. To put it differently, these 3 watches simply look stunningly cool. Period! That is the simple part. Now, let’s see why they are so attractive. With this brand new set, JLC has achieved something rather hard: creating a style that resonates with the present classic trend, without falling into the trap of copying beyond models.The Master Control Collection integrates the beauty of classic design with assorted modern touches, in a really balanced way. The “thing of the offense” here (that we will see remains a reasonable crime for your wallet) is your sector dial.
