Jaeger-Lecoultre updates their Master collection for men by presenting the new Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon watch in pink gold. Following in the lineage of the earliest Ultra Thin models, this time piece revels in those same pure shapes that gave rise to the characteristics so beloved by connoisseurs: the roundness of its case; the strong presence of its hour-markers; the sophistication of its Dauphine hands; the finishes of its Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 978G, visible on the back of the watch; and last but not least, the endless ballet of the Tourbillon and its moving titanium carriage.
Against the eggshell-coloured dial of the Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon watch, its new, larger hour-markers with their gilded, honed silhouette are more eye-catching and easier to read than ever. They taper off at 6 o’clock and disappear altogether to make room for the Tourbillon to display itself, with its new gold bridge. On the back of the watch, the new mainplate of its automatic movement can be seen, decorated with a sunray finish.
The extremely thin case, measuring just 10.77 mm, accommodates the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 978G. This beautifully finished self-winding mechanical movement benefits from a 45-hour power reserve. Its Tourbillon draws the eye through a wide aperture at 6 o’clock, captivating the gaze with the play of full and empty spaces among its gear cogs.
The pink gold version of the Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon offers perfect equilibrium, a balance that can be enjoyed both rationally and emotionally. Irreproachable rigour – expressed in the supreme linearity of its hands and hour-markers – is a foil for the complex, intricate tangle of components that make up the Tourbillon. Its utterly sober pink gold case and eggshell dial are balanced by the generosity of a brown alligator leather strap.
