The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control series was launched in 1992 and it has been 25 years. On this occasion, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents three new Master Control series. This series combines classic aesthetic design and excellent technology, highlighting the extraordinary quality of the self-made movement in the workshop, symbolizing the superb watchmaking tradition inherited from Jaeger-LeCoultre.
In line with the 25th anniversary of the collection, Jaeger-LeCoultre draws inspiration from the many classics of the brand’s round watches, presents the three iconic functions of the series in a new way, and introduces the Master Control Date, the Master Chronograph Watches and Master Geographic watches. The date display, chronograph function and geography complication are the companions of daily life, which also contributed to the success of the Master Control series. Today, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents new works.
This series follows the classic design and is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement with a retro blue tone. On the dial in marine blue, the hollowed-out Barton hands, blue steel central seconds hand, complex function display and minute scale ring are clearly visible. All three newly designed elegant watches are paired with dark blue tones of crocodile leather straps, showing men’s elegant style.
All three cleverly display the light and shadow effects, and have a polished bezel and lugs, and the case is polished with satin to add more refinement and charm. The dial’s outer ring is decorated with a ring-shaped satin finish, while the center has an opal-like appearance with sharp contrast. The watch refracts light at different angles, making the display functions clearer and easier to read. The dial features black hour markers, which highlight the contrast of colors.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date
This watch exudes irresistible charm, its simple and pure lines, and its rounded shape reflect the essence of the Master Control series. The dial features iconic digital hour markers at 6 o’clock, 9 o’clock and 12 o’clock, and a date display at 3 o’clock. This simple feature is still a must-have feature for watches today. The case has a diameter of 39 mm and is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement. Through the sapphire crystal caseback, the wearer can admire the Jaeger-LeCoultre 899/1 mechanical movement and its 22K gold rotor.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Chronograph
This chronograph is stylishly designed, inspired by classic models, with the lines of the Master Control collection. The leisurely and elegant appearance makes watch enthusiasts who love classic timekeeping complication at the same time looking for unique watches. The case hoop is equipped with two easy-to-use buttons for convenient use of the timekeeping function. The hour and minute counters are harmoniously distributed on the dial. The chronograph dial is eye-catching blue, contrasting with the blue steel hands and the low-speed tachymeter scale on the outer edge of the watch. This practical function can easily measure the speed of the object moving between two points. This self-winding watch has a 40 mm diameter case that is vibrant and looks great on the wrist.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Geographic
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Geographic watch is a representative model of the Master Control series, bringing travelers an unprecedented second time zone reading experience. The window below the dial shows the names of 24 cities around the world, representing global time zones. The second time zone time display can be easily adjusted through the crown at 10 o’clock on the case. This function is decorated with a circular guilloche pattern to refract light at a new angle, forming an elegant contrast with other dial decorations. This distinctive blue watch gives a refreshing look while showing a timeless style.
Master watches have been rigorously tested for over 25 years
The Master Control series is the first of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s 1000 Hours Control internally certified series, hence the name. Watches have to pass a series of rigorous tests to ensure accuracy and reliability. Since then, this test has been extended to all the timepiece series of Jaeger-LeCoultre. During the 6-week test period, the watch was tested in 6 different wearing positions. Whether it’s temperature change, impact, power reserve or water resistance, every test is meticulous, ensuring that every watch will satisfy its future owners.
