The headline model of the new Master Control collection, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Chronograph Calendar, features a newly developed movement, Calibre 759, which combines a chronograph with a triple calendar display and a moon-phase. Brought together for the first time in a Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece, this alliance of complications evokes the ancient links between watchmaking and astronomy. The new Calibre 759 features a column-wheel chronograph with a vertical clutch, a moon-phase indicator, and a 65-hour power reserve.
For the first time, the watchmakers of the Manufacture de la Vallée de Joux have combined the chronograph with a triple calendar in the Master Control collection. Combining characterful design and an automatic movement developed and assembled under the roof at the Manufacture, this benchmark collection has seduced lovers of beautiful objects since its creation in 1992. This undeniable success prompted Jaeger-LeCoultre to reinterpret the aesthetic and mechanical codes of this collection, while retaining its fundamental features. Rounded case. Noble attributes. High level of finish. In this highly balanced ensemble, the Master Control Chronograph Calendar in stainless steel features a chronograph and complete calendar.
With a balanced dial layout that combines the familiarity of two classical complications – a triple calendar and a bi-compax chronograph – Jaeger-LeCoultre’s designers have made the reading of the displays straightforward and intuitive, despite the complexity of the information shown. The 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock is balanced by the running seconds subdial at 9 o’clock, while the day and month windows in the top part of dial are balanced by the moon-phase and date indicator at 6 o’clock. The entire display is anchored by the central chronograph seconds hand and contained by the pulsometric scale marked around the dial flange. Complementing the Chronograph Calendar’s timeless style, rectangular chronograph pushers add a purposeful, modern air to the well-proportioned 12.05mm thick case, which is offered in steel or Le Grand Rose gold®.
