Roughly a month prior to the SIHH in Geneva, where Richemont brands (a.o.) acquaint their oddities with the press, retailers and customers, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents their Master Ultra Thin Moon Enamel as of now. Restricted to 100 pieces just, this watch includes a dial that is completely executed by hand by a couple of craftsmans prepared in Le Sentier, where the Jaeger-LeCoultre produce is located.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon Enamel

The Master Ultra Thin assortment is among our top choices, as we wrote in this article on their Master Ultra Thin Perpetual Calendar .  Jaeger-LeCoultre utilizes the Master Ultra Thin not exclusively to show their hand-guilloché blue veneer dial yet additionally their moonphase marker. A hand-make combined with a mechanical complication.

The Master Ultra Thin Moon Enamel has a white gold 39mm case that is just 10.04mm in tallness, thus the ‘Ultra Thin’ designator. Inside, we discover the JLC Caliber 925/2 development. A programmed development with a 70-hour power save and, obviously, the moonphase complication.

I need to say that the primary pictures that Jaeger-LeCoultre shows us look quite marvelous. The dial is essentially dazzling with its guillochage technique. The ‘cocktail’ theme is delightful, particularly in this blue tone. Likewise give close consideration to the moon stage circle and the date plate with its numbers in bas-alleviation. Additionally new on the dial are the twofold hour markers at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. The high cleaned dauphine hands give a pleasant differentiation to the blue finish dial. The whole composition is essentially excellent, in any event on the photos we’ve seen up until this point. I can’t hold back to see and deal with this watch in the substance one month from now during the SIHH.

If this is the new heading that Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new CEO Catherine Rénier has as a top priority, I am much more eager to see their other new watches during the SIHH 2019 and following years. It appears as though they are focusing on a somewhat extraordinary crowd with these Master Ultra Thin watches than the 50-year old dental specialist driving a Volvo they did in the past.  This Ultra Thin Moon Enamel is certainly something that will engage a bigger and maybe more extensive crowd. The cost isn’t to be formally communicated yet.
