From its origins in 1833, Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced its first round-cased watch containing an in-house manufactured automatic movement in 1946, serving as the forerunner of the Master Control series available today. A beautifully contoured, round-case shape denotes this elegant collection of watches.
Calibres range from the very simplest ultra-thin models with just two hands, through to chronographs, dual and world time functions, alarms, perpetual calendars and more – culminating with their very own Tourbillon movements.
In the Ultra-Thin series, Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control watches feature some of the slimmest movements manufactured anywhere in the world today. Classic designs in manual wind and automatic – some with moon-phase indicator, perpetual calendar function, or the thinnest minute repeater on the market.
In 1992, Master Control watches were subjected to a stringent series of tests, named '1000 Hours Control'. These six separate checks over a 41-day period are now applied to each and every Jaeger-LeCoultre watch.
