Jaeger-LeCoultre Celebrates 180 Years of Watchmaking with Three Limited-Edition Timepieces

Timed with the company’s 180th anniversary this year, Jaeger-LeCoultre has unveiled the Jubilee Collection, which celebrates some of its best historic timepieces in striking new variations. Inspired by Jaeger-LeCoultre’s ultrathin pocket watch from about 1907, the new Master Ultra Thin Jubilee ($17,800) debuts as the brand’s thinnest mechanical wristwatch—its movement is just 1.85 millimeters thick, and its case (in extra-white platinum) is 4.05 millimeters. The company will make 880 editions of the watch.

Jaeger-LeCoultre has also unveiled two other new models: the Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel Jubilee, issued in 180 pieces, and the Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee, issued in just 75 pieces; prices of both are available upon request. The Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee has two spherical tourbillons in addition to a chronograph function on a separate dial that is measured by a seconds hand and a digital display. It has two additional dials to indicate the time of day and whether it is day or night. Both cases are in platinum and are set on alligator straps. (www.jaeger-lecoultre.com)
