FrontRunners: Time to Celebrate

The third installment in the company’s Gyrotourbillon watch series, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee (www.jaegerlecoultre.com) features an enhanced visual quality. The high-speed, multi-axis tourbillon cage of the Jubilee (price upon request) produces the same hypnotizing effect as the original 2004 model, but it has been upgraded with a spherical hairspring. The hairspring—visible in the center of the watch—improves the Jubilee’s precision. The openwork dial affords a clear view of the movement, which includes an unusual single-pusher chronograph function with a simple seconds and digital minutes counter.
