Jaeger Lecoultre Master Calendar

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar
Useful functions along with understated elegance combined with remarkable design work: the Master Calendar is in a class of its own. And the new model revealed by the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre in 2013 further accentuates this originality: it possesses all the attributes that have forged the success of the Master Control line, as well as the characteristics of a timepiece that has written some of the finest chapters in watchmaking history. Nonetheless, its enduring appeal shows up in a subtly different interpretation featuring a resized 39 mm-diameter case.
In 1945, Jaeger-LeCoultre unveiled a calendar watch featuring the kind of pure lines that asserted themselves throughout the latter half of the 20th century. It served as a source of inspiration for all the contemporary Master Calendar models, and continues to appeal to watchmaking enthusiasts with a taste for elegance and precision.
The exact order of the useful functions is clearly apparent on the sunburst silver-toned dial: the eye almost instinctively perceives the main indications of the watch, the hours and minutes shown by central dauphine-type hands. The mind can then focus on the additional information provided: the day of the week and the month appearing in two 12 o’clock apertures, and the seconds read off around the rim of a sub dial at 6 o’clock. The latter is devoted to displaying the moon phase which, in keeping with tradition, appears to peep out between two clouds and to ascend into the star-studded sky. As the soul revels in these celestial wonders, the gaze naturally sets off to discover a new indication appearing at the far end of a long hand tipped by a crescent moon sweeping gently around the date to which it points on a graduated scale running from 1 to 31 and arranged around the dial circumference.
The Master Calendar comes in two versions: one in pink gold and the other in stainless steel – each framing a silver-toned sunburst dial. The pink gold model is teamed with an alligator leather strap secured by a matching pin buckle, while the alligator strap of the stainless steel version comes with an equally matching folding clasp.
Water-resistant to 5 atmospheres, the case is equipped with a sapphire crystal revealing the movement – Jaeger-Lecoultre Caliber 866 – featuring components graced with traditional Fine Watchmaking finishes. Once again, the Manufacture has achieved the tour de force of providing a fresh interpretation of perfection. The magic is as potent as ever and the aficionado’s heart beats a little bit faster: the Master Calendar is now more quintessentially horological than ever.
