The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon ref. 1323420 is the epitome of elegance with its 40 mm white gold case with a thickness of merely 11.3 mm. This ultra thin automatic tourbillon is not only a true horological feat but also one of the best tourbillons money can buy. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon is the quintessential tourbillon for those seeking a supremely elegant watch from this manufacture. Fitted with a gorgeous silvered grain dial with applied white gold markers and dauphine hands, the tourbillon carriage at 6 o'clock rises in all its glory, all rounded out by the beautifully hand finished black alligator strap with double folding clasp.
Its elegant dial is not only very appealing to the eyes but also extremely well finished and well balanced without overdoing any element of it. As it should be when it comes to a tourbillon watch, the star should be the tourbillon carriage. In this case, an ultra-light carriage made of grade 5 titanium, highlighted by the blued running seconds hand on top of it is the star at 6 o'clock.
Visible via the display case back, the Jaeger-LeCoultre automatic calibre 982 rises in all glory. This movement composed of 262 parts, 33 jewels and one barrel, provides a power reserve of 45 hours while beating at a frequency of 28,800 vph. The movement features a beautiful skeletonized 22K gold oscillating weight with 'Clous de Paris' pattern. The exquisitely finished movement as it is the norm when it comes to Jaeger-LeCoultre is pure eye candy.
On the wrist, the watch wears true to its size and extremely comfortably. Regardless of its precious material composition, the watch wears pretty light and with remarkable elegance. Next time you are getting ready to attend the Annual Chaplin Award Gala at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, make no mistake and wear this tourbillon that will be the envy of everyone around you.
