In 1992, the ‘1,000 Hours Control’ quality procedure made its debut in the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control collection. The in-house certification comprised of a six-week programme of radical tests to ensure the watches are reliable and precise under every condition imaginable, leading to the production of some of the finest watches ever seen.
To celebrate 25 years of excellence, Jaeger-LeCoultre has unveiled three new models: the Master Control Date, Master Chronograph and Master Geographic. These modern-day avatars are given a vintage-inspired treatment, featuring stunning sector dials shaded with touches of navy across the skeletonised baton hands, blued stainless steel central seconds, in the complications and the minute circle. The stately blue statement of these wristwatches is completed with an alligator strap of the same deep hue.
01 MASTER CHRONOGRAPH
The Master Chronograph is the intricate iteration of the collection with a two-counter chronograph and tachometer functions. The two-tone sector dial retains its classy face with the inclusion of two vintage-inspired counters that indicate hours and minutes. Inside the 40mm stainless steel case is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 751G automatic mechanical movement that keeps the timepiece ticking up to 65 hours.
