The anniversary Jaeger-LeCoultre Jubilee Collection

By Adrian Prisca


Published on

Having been founded exactly 180 years ago, back in 1833, in Le Sentier, Switzerland, the first Jaeger-LeCoultre workshop was the start of an adventure. The brand has ever since been wondering into unknown fields, managing to merge innovation with state of the art technology.

During the present day, dedicated to the founder of the brand, Antoine LeCoultre, and to the celebration of the 180 years of existence of the brand, the renowned watchmakers have released the Jubilee Collection, the “Tribute Antoine LeCoultre”.

This veils upon this stunning collection were lifted on the occasion of the International Salon of Haute Horlogerie. The series opens brand new horizons of watchmaking, being comprised of three luxurious timepieces – the Master Grand Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel Jubilee, the Master Ultra Thin Jubilee and the exquisite Master Grand Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee.

The one we’ve mentioned the last, the wristwatch which includes a gyrotourbillon, is quite a masterpiece. A wonderful peak of watchmaking technology, the mechanism is an authentic 21st century sensation, first time to appear with a flying tourbillon, a spherical-shaped balance spring and a blued gold balance. The looks of this staggering piece are influenced by those which used to describe the 19th century pocket watches manufactured by the brand.

The Master Grand Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel Jubilee is said to be the 21st century version of the 19th century perpetual calendars launched by the brand at the respective time. It includes one of the brand’s most innovative complications, dedicated to those who really enjoy this wonderful art. The piece boasts with a brand new automatic winding mechanical movement, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 985, a perfect balance between accuracy, beauty and classicism.

The last of the lot, but definitely not the least, is the Master Ultra Thin Jubilee. This one is considered the thinnest mechanical manual winding wristwatch in the world. Just 4.05 mm thick, it is inspired by the extremely thin pocket watch released by the brand in 1907. It further boasts a movement which proves the technical capabilities of Jaeger-LeCoultre – a knife-shaped ultra-thin case, garnished in exquisite extra-white platinum, measuring 39 mm in diameter – this is pure watchmaking minimalism, a concept we enthusiastically adore!
