Perfectly mastered within the Métiers Rares® Atelier of the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre, the art of paillonné enamel consists of cutting out tiny sparkles of silver and yellow gold leaf foil. Only experience can enable the artisan to distribute these extremely volatile tiny spangles or paillettes across the enamel in an aesthetically pleasing manner. After firing the enamel in the kiln, polishing reveals the metal elements glimmering beneath the dial. The final result is an extraordinary deep blue dial that looks as if it is illuminated with fireworks of golden star dust.
The performance of the ultra-light titanium tourbillon embodying a blend of precision, reliability and sturdiness, pays tribute to the inventive spirit that has consistently characterised Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre. This exceptional piece crafted in a 43 mm white gold case is enhanced by decorations in keeping with the traditions of Haute Horlogerie.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 978 mechanical automatic movement beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, equipped with a tourbillon, consists of 302 parts and delivers a 45-hour power reserve. The Côtes de Genève motif adorning the going-train bridge is complemented by a variety of hand-crafted techniques that can be admired through the sapphire case back of the watch.
