Wearing a Jaeger Lecoultre gives you an exclusive appeal especially that it’s not every day you see successful people wearing the signature timepiece. The watch is almost a rare find, a luxury among Swiss luxury watches, especially its Duométre collection. The model is inspired by the Grand Complication style, showcasing the fine art and precision science of creating simultaneous movements under one hood. Duométre Sphérotourbillon reflects the 180 years of Jaeger Lecoultre watch craftsmanship featuring an exclusive multi-axis tourbillon with a second axis inclined at twenty degrees to protect the movement from gravity. Another Duométre model, the Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie, features an impressive 1,472 parts with an innovative minute repeater. It’s one of the most complex watches around. Similarly, the Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire is striking for its ‘dual-wing’ concept.
Jaeger Lecoultre is available at Shreve & Co. on Post Street, San Francisco.
