To mark its 175th Anniversary, Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced the Master Minute Repeater Antoine LeCoultre with an impressive power reserve of 15 days.
Jaeger-LeCoultre's calibre 947 is the only manually wound movement that has a 15-day power reserve. The spring torque is displayed on a special indicator, guaranteeing optimal accuracy as long as the hand remains in the indicator’s safety zone. Its dial opens on the movement, which immediately stands out as the main player in a visual and acoustical delight. The product of a lengthy research process, its crystal gong, made of a material that remains a trade secret, represents a major innovation in sound purity and clarity.
The present example is crafted from titanium, allowing for the watch to feel extremely light on the wrist, despite its large 44mm case.
