Jacques Launched The New Jaeger-lecoultre Calendar Series Limited Edition

Following the successful launch of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Beibei series at the Salon InternationaldelaHauteHorlogerie in Geneva last year, the Jaeger-LeCoultre workshop adds a special new work to the series: the Jaeger-LeCoultre calendar series Limited edition). The limited edition of this model is limited to 800 pieces, which fully demonstrates the superb watchmaking skills of the Jaeger-LeCoultre workshop, and integrates modern proportions, retro design patterns and important aesthetic changes.

New watch with classic charm

 

  The Jaeger-LeCoultre calendar series draws inspiration from the second generation of the Jaeger-LeCoultre series, which was born in 1970.It uses a unique new hand-painted surface and a blue double-graded dial, which combines the sun’s radial grain, grain and Opal decorative treatment. The central disc and the main dial are respectively added with shiny and discoloring processing effects, transitioning from darker blue-green to bright royal blue. The blue rubber strap with Paris studs is also a feature of this model, which complements the color scheme of the inner bezel. The inner bezel follows the classic prototype Memovox Polar Alarm Clock and the second generation of the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch, and can be turned to open more functions.

  The Jaeger-LeCoultre Beibei Calendar keeps the Beibei’s iconic look, including slim Arabic numerals, trapezoidal hour markers and Barton hands. These parts are treated with Super-LumiNova ™ fluorescence and remain legible in dim environments. Its vanilla-tone fluorescent material pays tribute to the famous Beibei watches in the 1960s and 1970s. Nevertheless, the Jaeger-LeCoultre calendar series is an uncompromisingly modern piece. The 42-mm-diameter steel case has two striking crowns for adjusting the time. And control the rotatable inner bezel mentioned earlier. The surface of the case has been polished and hand-polished, with powerful sports performance hidden under the elegant appearance, and the waterproof depth can reach 200 meters.

  The internal self-winding mechanical movement fully demonstrates Jaeger-LeCoultre’s precise technology and exquisite craftsmanship. The 899A / 1 type movement created by Jaeger-LeCoultre makes the seconds, minutes, hours and date (at the three o’clock position) Dedicated window display) function runs accurately and has a 38-hour power reserve. Four special patterns are engraved on the closed caseback, including the SCUBA diving badge, Jaeger-LeCoultre seal, and the words ‘1000HOURSCONTROL’ (1000 hours test), which means that after the watch is assembled, it will take 1000 hours to test before leaving the Swiss valley Jaeger-LeCoultre workshop and the words ‘Limitededition—Oneof800’ (limited to 800 pieces) on the edge of the bottom cover.

Evolving tradition

  The Jaeger-LeCoultre Calendar series is the latest masterpiece of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Collection, inspired by the iconic Memovox Polar Alarm Clock. This historical model was developed specifically for the US market and continued to be produced between 1965 and 1968. The prototype of the classic Memovox Polar Alarm Watch provided the diver with a revolutionary underwater loudspeaker alarm function, which is still regarded today as synonymous with adventure and technological innovation. In addition, the watch’s ingenious and chic design style is also highly respected: a three-layer concentric dial layout, a rotating inner bezel and a multi-crowned case. The new Jaeger-LeCoultre collection respects the original visual design elements to pay homage to the prototype watch, and the watch has been more modern in design, including shorter lugs, a slimmer bezel, and an ergonomic crown And sapphire crystal.
