How would you characterize a traditional, dress watch? Plunk down briefly and pose the inquiry to yourself and to individuals close to you… The definition will absolutely evolve around a fairly little, richly molded, most presumably thin and in gold watch. At that point, what complication would you like to see on the dial? A chronograph or a pivoting bezel? Absolutely not. Shouldn’t something be said about a moon-stages sign? Also, what might be said about a date? That could be very decent, don’t you think. All things considered, if that’s what you’re searching for, we may have an answer for you. Here is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon 39 Boutique Edition.
This watch is nothing about an appropriate oddity. It’s even a watch that we assessed as of late (short after SIHH 2015) in a hardened steel/dark dial combination . The thing we said about this watch was straightforward: “This watch is neither a tourbillon , nor a minute repeater or a skeleton chronograph . All things considered, it shows what Jaeger-LeCoultre does consistently, the watches that are truly created and sold.” It’s truth be told the best illustration of an old style Jaeger-LeCoultre: in fact a very basic watch (regardless of whether the development isn’t drained of interest), with a spotless and adjusted dial and a somewhat thin profile. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon 39 was at that point accessible ( since SIHH 2012 ) in a few editions: in hardened steel with a decision of silver or dark dial or in pink gold with a very classical Eggshell beige dial (with or without jewels on the bezel). It is also possible to have this exquisite watch in another edition, this time just available in true boutiques, with a 18k pink gold case and a record dial – and to be straightforward, without recharging the idea, it looks appropriately good.
The instance of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon is in the custom of the Master assortment: a spotless plan, with a completely reflect cleaned finish (very delicate to scratches…) and a thin inclined bezel that leaves an enormous gap for the dial. The drags are common with their facetted shape that tightened as far as possible. The measurements are sensible, with a 39mm breadth and a 9.9mm tallness. Obviously, it stays a long way from the 3.6mm stature of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Squelette or the 4mm of Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin 1907 . Notwithstanding, a watch estimating under 10mm in stature is consistently equivalent of polish and can be worn under a sleeve. Same goes for the measurement that takes into consideration a cautious presence on the wrist.
On the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon, the utilization of 18k pink gold permits a more lavish and warm inclination than the dark dial/hardened steel edition , which can be somewhat cold with its monochromatic look. The best remaining parts the combination with this marginally domed dial that here highlights a delicate sunburst design and a warm record dim tone (that can be viewed as anthracite dim or dim earthy colored, contingent upon the surrounding light). The facetted moment and hour hands, just as the long and thin second hand and the date pointer are coordinating with the situation. The little spots for the minutes all around the dial and the 12 hour markers are additionally utilizing pink gold. At last, the moon and the stars are overlaid. The outcome is a warm differentiation between the brilliant gold and the dull dial, which never feels gaudy. It stays a circumspect however sumptuous watch, reasonable for every occasions.
The circumspection and style of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon likewise comes from the traditional presentation, with a moon pointer situated at 6 and surrounded with a date, pointed by a hand. This takes into account a reasonable and straightforward look – which feels somewhat obsolete and vintage, similar to a 1960s watch (something that the domed dial, the applied files and the facetted hands stress). A touch of complication however not all that much, the correct measurement of engravings (regardless of whether the “automatic” at 6 feels somewhat improper and not required) and the extra-warmness of the record dial: absolutely the most ideal combo on this watch.
Underneath the sapphire caseback of the Jaeger-Lecoultre Master Ultra-Thin Moon 39 ticks an in-house development, created and fabricated by Jaeger-LeCoultre. The type 925 is just 4.9 mm thick (remember that we’re before a self-winding development, along these lines including a rotor on the top, and 2 complications on the top). It demonstrates hours, minutes, seconds, moon-stages and date. It comprises 246 sections, of which 30 gems, and conveys 43 hours of force save when completely twisted. Completing is lovely with round Geneva stripes, blued screws, cleaned sloped points on the extensions and roundabout graining on the fundamental plate.
