The creation of the Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel in pink gold is a dizzying feat that sets a connoisseur’s heart beating as fast as its mechanism. Inspired by its 19th century perpetual calendars, Jaeger-LeCoultre launches one of its finest complications within the Master Grande Tradition line. Dedicated to collectors and devotees of the watchmaking art, its advanced technology makes it the world's most accurate perpetual calendar.The watch, equipped with a flying (or cantilevered) tourbillon and a perpetual calendar, has been created in complete respect for the noblest watchmaking traditions and is in tune with the quest for absolute precision treasured by the founder of the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre. Within a large 42mm pink gold case, Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 985 beats to the rhythm of a flying tourbillon and isequipped with a cylindrical balance-spring, forming an ensemble guaranteeing exceptional precision timing performances. In terms of aesthetics, the Master Grande Tradition Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel features the perfect balance between classicism, purity and relevance – a means of associating its 2 historical origins with elegant modernity. Its 18K pink gold case pays tribute to the 19th century and draws inspiration from the style codes characterising pocket-watches. Its array of design details reflects these same codes: hourmarkers, a traditional minute circle, and a silver-toned grained dial finish. The superbly understated “dauphine” hands make a perfect match with the classic nature of the model. The exceptional Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel was showcased at World Brand Piazza 2014 presented by Prince Jewellery & Watch Company from the 3rd to the 7th of September.
