Jaeger LeCoultre Master Control Grande Ultra Thin Silver Dial Stainless Steel Men's Watch Q1358120

Replica Expensive Jaeger LeCoultre Master Control Grande Ultra Thin Silver Dial Stainless Steel Men’s Watch Item No. Q1358120

This includes affects, temperature changes, motion through six positions, water resistance, and much more — it’s all fairly standard stuff now (though six months is a great deal of time for something such as that), however in 1992 that was basically unheard of.If you are paying attention to the dates, a 1992 discharge would make 2017 that the 25th anniversary of the Master Control collection. The watch we’ve got here is really part of a trio that comprises the three core complications which have been from the Master Control collection since the beginning: date and time, chronograph, and traveling time. These aren’t actually being labeled as a 25th anniversary collection, nor are they being promoted as such, but that is basically what these watches are and they are only going to be made for this particular one anniversary season. I’m not going to go too in-depth on both of the other watches in this collection, but the chronograph is still worth a closer look. While the time-and-date watch is the one that drew me in instantly, I know quite a few men and women who had been over the moon about the chronograph. It is a stainless steel chronograph with a two-tone industry dial for $8,000 — to find that in a classic watch you would probably be paying 10x, or more. It is worth noting that this model is 40mm, therefore not small, and it has a closed caseback, despite the automatic Jaeger movement indoors. The lack of date along with the bright blue accents really set this opinion apart and make it awesome.The last watch is your Geographic, which, I hate to mention, just does not do it for me. I enjoy the Geographic in general (I am a massive fan of traveling watches), and I even like the 3-9-12 dial layout. But, there’s simply too much going on here for a sector dial. You don’t have to enjoy the dial design due to all the information packed in.

The only difference between these two watches is in the dial. The new model has a sector dial — such as we’ve seen from Laurent Ferrier, also for the record, in a style not dissimilar to my very favourite Patek Philippe Calatrava — with a plain brushed silvered complete underneath.Since that is a brand new entry-level watch for Jaeger-LeCoultre, let’s think about everything else you could be spending your cash on instead. Assuming you are going to need equal heights of “big brand” recognition, you could be looking at fellow Richemont new IWC, whose brand new Ingenieur provides a lot of the same aesthetic cues in the 1950s albeit in a buttoned-up, sensible kind of way. Equipped with IWC, you might also get your hands on a Portofino midsize and change, but that is a little more dainty compared to Jaeger-LeCoultre. So are a whole lot of those other options. Zenith’s new Elite Classic, which prices #4,200, is beautiful but more of a rival to the old-style Master Control, maybe not that young brand new edition. For around the5,000 mark you can look at a Cartier Drive in stainless steel, or even a Bulgari Octo Roma, each of which might satisfy your urge to stick out from the audience — but neither is precisely treading on the Jaeger-LeCoultre’s feet. There is not a whole lot out there like this at the moment.

But Jaeger-LeCoultre? It’s not so evident an alternative. Outside watch-loving circles, not lots of people know the brand or know how significant it really is. Thus there’s a feeling that you’re paying for more than only a brand name, a sense bolstered by the unbelievable detailing on the watch dial and movement. And this Cable? You get accustomed to it. If anything, it becomes a quirky character trait over an annoyance. You won’t find in an “engineered” watch.In reality, the newest Master Control Date Stainless Steel reference 1548530 (to give it its entire name) is the lowest priced Jaeger-LeCoultre men’s view in the brand’s entire selection, in #4,800. A Reverso Medium comes in at #5,100 (the small Reverso models are quartz-powered and geared toward women). It’s possible to compare them here. (As a side note, the fact that Jaeger-LeCoultre sets a #1,450 premium on a steel bracelet — #6,600 over #5,150 — is slightly shocking) Comparing new and old Master Controls is intriguing. Line up these watches together and you will notice that, quite naturally, they’ve a great deal in common. The identical movement, for a beginning: the only barrel, in-house automated calibre 899/1 using 219 parts, beating at 4Hz. They utilize exactly the exact same 39mm crown and case too. Other elements — the sapphire, the pin buckle, the leather strap (one black, one blue) are also synonymous.

In the market for a retro-styled, some might say “apparel”, chronograph from among Switzerland’s pedigree manufacturers, in steel for under #7,500? You’re likely to return to IWC, in which you’d think about the Portugieser Chronograph for #6,250. Or Zenith, that has an El Primero for every day of the year, and plenty between #6,000 and #7,000. Girard-Perregaux’s Competizione isn’t quite in precisely the exact same league stylistically, also Chopard’s Mille Miglia bits wear their racing connotations a bit to rival the specialized aesthetic of the Master Chronograph. In short, Jaeger-LeCoultre has pulled off an odd trick; this of making a watch that you instinctively feel seems much like other watches, but on closer inspection does not have any authentic like-for-like competitor.On the wrist both the time-only Master Control wear very well, coming up perhaps even more compact compared to their sizes could suggest — maybe a trick of the brain caused by the concentric circles of the sector dials. Some people have thought the less costly dial finishing rather than representing what they’d expect from Jaeger-LeCoultre; I can say to that is: it is what it is. Yes, you are getting a slightly more fundamental end, and losing the texture which is included with applied numerals. But it’s hardly slapdash and, taken together with those hands and the use of color, it doesn’t really offend me at all.
