This year Jaeger-LeCoultre maintains its intensive pace of innovations with the unveiling of a new edition to the highly acclaimed Duomètre line, comprising the Duomètre à Chronographe, the Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire and the all new Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire 40.5.
Its new-generation movement is based on an unprecedented concept nicknamed Dual-Wing. A genuine revolution in terms of watchmaking precision, the Dual-Wing concept is composed of two separate watch mechanisms connected by a shared regulating organ.
The Duomètre à Chronographe is the highest expression of the art of the chronograph. A true masterpiece of micromechanics, its Jaeger-LeCoultre 'Dual-Wing' Calibre contains two independent power reserves, one of which is devoted solely to a chronograph possessing unique functions: hours, minutes and seconds hands, a display of units per minute, and a "foudroyante" seconds display with zero reset.
As the ﬁrst model in this prestigious lineage, the Duomètre à Chronographe watch is available in pink gold and platinum, while an 18ct yellow gold edition is available in a limited series of 300.
Arranged on the elegant and easily readable dial, the hours, minutes, seconds and moonphase displays appear to make the Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire a classic watch model, but inside the case, and partially hidden from view, beats Calibre 381, a prodigious movement boasting unprecedented precision based on the Dual-Wing concept and which propels the watch ﬁrmly into the spheres of Haute Horlogerie. The Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire was voted the Watch of the Year by the collectors and watch connoisseurs of Timezone.co.uk.
The Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire is available in 18ct pink or yellow gold on either a matt black or chocolate brown alligator leather strap. For the more fashion conscious male, the Manufacture have also added an 18ct white gold model in a limited edition of 200 with a black dial to the collection.
The Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire 40.5 is a slightly smaller case at 40.5mm diameter and is available in 18ct pink gold on a chocolate toned alligator leather strap.
The Duomètre vividly illustrates Jaeger-LeCoultre's unassailable position in the highest spheres of technical watchmaking.
