This Jaeger-LeCoultre ref. 1362520 is an elegant watch that features a gorgeous rose gold case, a brown alligator strap with rose gold pin buckle, a sapphire display case back and one of the most beautiful beige/cream color dials that we've ever seen. The dial features a moon-phase/date complication at 6 o'clock, rhodium plated markers and 'dauphine' hands.
This 39 mm case ultra-thin watch measures only 9.9 mm in thickness. The refinement and elegance of this timepiece creates a perfect symphony that embodies all the values and essence of what Jaeger-LeCoultre is about. There is a perfect contrast created by the beige sunray brushed colored dial, the blue and gold moon-phase disc and the anodized blue seconds hand. The dial is perfectly balanced and it makes this watch a very classy and elegant looking timepiece that is unparalleled.
If you pay close attention to the 'dauphine' hour and minute hands, you will notice that half of the hands have a brushed/rugged finish while the other half is polished. This type of finish on the hands not only makes them extremely unique but also very useful at refracting light.
The watch is fitted with the Jaeger-LeCoultre ultra-thin calibre 925 composed of 246 parts and 30 jewels which provide a power-reserve of 43 hours. The movement is only 4.9 mm thick and is fully visible through the display case back. As it is common with Jaeger-LeCoultre, the finish on the movement is superb and a true treat to the eye.
The rotor is engraved with the legend Master Control 1000 Hours and the manufacture's logo. Jaeger-LeCoultre submits all their watches to a strict '1000 Hours Control' where watches undergo a full 1,000 hours of tests around temperature, atmospheric pressure, shock and magnetic field resistance as well as water-resistance trials.
The crown is easy to operate and both the date and moon-phase are set via the push- pieces located on both sides of the case. The moon-phase is adjusted at 8 o'clock and the date at 4 o'clock. The watch comes with a beautiful and handy tool —with a soft tip— to press the push-pieces and avoid scratching them or the watch case by accident.
Overall, this is one of the most beautiful and elegant watches out there. The only down side of this watch, if we can find any, is that even though the case measures 39 mm in width —because of its ultra-thin profile— this watch wears slightly smaller. Now, don't misunderstand us, as there's nothing wrong with that. If you have a 6.5-7" wrist, this watch is a perfect fit.
If you are looking to add a touch of class and elegance to that bespoke suit, that Bengal striped Thomas Pink shirt or just a pair of Armani jeans with a comfy Lanvin t-shirt, then this watch is a must have for you.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon 39 is also available in stainless steel or rose gold with diamond bezel.
