In a matter of a few days, some of the biggest names from the world of Horology would get together to raise funds for the noble cause of supporting research on Muscular Dystrophy. One of them is Jaeger Le-Coultre and today we look at its unique offering for the grand charitable event, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Perpetual Enamel Only Watch 2019, a chocolaty take on the brand’s SIHH 2019 release.
The star of the show on this watch is its Chestnut colored enamel dial. The brown-colored face looks as stunning as its blue dialed sibling but is certainly on the warmer side. Apart from the shift in color, everything else remains unchanged. What that means is that you still get the refined guilloche pattern that has been carried out by hand by Jaeger-LeCoultre’s master artisans and brings a nice texture and added depth to the dial. Also present is the four register Setup with the year/month at 12, day of the week at 3, a moon phase display at 6 and the fate at 9. This layout keeps the dial well balanced and makes it a breeze to read the time using the polished dauphine style handset.
Complementing the rich dial details is the white gold case. It measures 39mm in diameter and is just 10.2mm thick making for a thin profile that should make the watch sit comfortably on the wrist and slide under those cuffs with ease. There is a sapphire crystal on both front and back, and the watch is water-resistant to a depth of 50 meters.
Powering this watch is Jaeger-Lecoultre’s in-house automatic caliber 8686A/2. The movement beats at a rate of 28,800 bph and offers a healthy power reserve of around 70 hours using just one barrel. The movement has been beautifully decorated and can be viewed through the exhibition case back.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Perpetual Enamel Only Watch 2019 watch would come attached to a black alligator strap and would be up for grabs at the Only watch 2019 auction event that would be held in Geneva between 7th and 9th November 2019.
