JAEGER-LECOULTRE MASTER CONTROL GEOGRAPHIC

 

Jaeger-LeCoultre’s unique interpretation of the travel watch has been a feature of the Master Control collection since 1990, much appreciated by connoisseurs. Rather than indicating only the hour of a second time zone, the Geographic also has a 24-hour night/day indicator and, in an aperture at the bottom of the dial, displays the city name relating to the zone. This gives travellers the option of setting the second time by location, rather than needing to calculate the time difference. The dial adheres to the familiar Geographic layout, with time-zone displays balanced by a date subdial and a power reserve indicator, and heat-blued steel hands adding a pop of colour to enhance legibility. But now, the entire dial is sunray-brushed, contained within a wide, convex flange on which the elongated triangular indexes are set. The profile of each index has been shaped to fit perfectly flush with the curve where the flange meets the dial – a challenge to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s artisans but entirely in keeping with the Maison’s attention to detail.

Inspired by the past and redesigned in the confident spirit of the 21st century, the new Master Control collection combines the creativity and deep know-how of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture, where all mechanical movements are made in-house. Blending timeless style with the relaxed elegance of modern urban living, it is destined to become a point of reference in contemporary watchmaking.
