Movies have a thing for trios. Apparently, so does Jaeger LeCoultre. The reputed Swiss watchmaking company celebrates its 180th anniversary in the industry with the Jubilee Collection, an impressive show of JLC’s seasoned expertise displayed on three different timepieces. The Gyrotourbillon Three is a remarkable piece from name to case to movement. The second piece, is the Cylindrical Tourbillon with Perpetual Calendar, which certainly deserves a round of admiring applause for its intricacy. And then, most interesting to thin-movement aficionados, is the Master Ultra Thin Jubilee mechanical watch. It is one of Jaeger LeCoultre’s neatest and most simple designs, but with just 4.05mm thickness, this 39mm diameter platinum watch is positively the thinnest mechanical dress watch in the whole world. The watch’s Caliber 849 movement is outstanding, especially packaged in a 1.85mm width. Find out more about Jaeger LeCoultre’s Jubilee trio and find yourself in awe.
