For most of us, the first things that come up to mind when thinking of Jaeger-LeCoultre are slim, time only watches with a timeless design. Jaeger-LeCoultre is not only a master of complicated watches but a brand that helped forge the horological world as we know it today, thanks to the development from the ground up of some of the most amazing movements and ebauches powering not only their own watches but also watches from the holy trinity of watchmaking —Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe—, as it happened with the development of the JLC calibre 920 which gave birth to the AP 2121, the VC 1121 and the Patek 28-255. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon is living testament of the horological prowess and expertise of this manufacture in the heart of the Vallée de Joux in Le Sentier. The new Jaeger-LeCoutlre Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon Pink Gold ref. 1682410 is the perfect embodiment of all that JLC stands for in the horological world.
Things to Know About the Watch

The eggshell beige dial with enlarged and refined hour-markers along with the new gold bridge of its tourbillon with blued seconds indicator, combine in a symphony of elegance that is unparalleled.
Rounding out the elegant and classic look of the JLC Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon, the dauphine hands feature a satin-brushed half and a highly polished one that warrants proper time readability.
The slim round case with step bezel along with the chocolate brown alligator strap maximize the timeless design of this timepiece that could’ve very well have been designed and launched decades ago. A watch that will stand the test of time as it gets passed down generation after generation. For the price, where else can you get a self-winding tourbillon with this level of horological pedigree?

The movement is fully visible via the display case back and is fitted with a partially skeletonized 22K pink gold oscillating weight with the JLC logo.
