  • Catalogue Essay

    The Master Control collection is the expression of traditional watchmaking that has been meticulously refined by Jaeger LeCoultre. Featuring a wide range of functions, the Master Control models bring together a classic appearance with technical features for precision timing. It is the brand's first line that has benefited from the “1,000 hour test” which inspired its name. First launched in 1990, the Master Control Geographic is distinguished by its dynamic design, contemporary elegance, and ease of use for international travel.

    The present dual and world time wristwatch features an independent, adjustable hour hand and second time zone that is easily read and adjusted with the subsidiary dial between the 6 and 8 o’clock. The city of the second time zone is indicated with a red marker at 6 o’clock, with the outer world cities wheel rotated through a second crown in the case. Accompanied with original guarantee and fitted presentation box, this model is ideal for international travel.

  • Artist Biography

    Jaeger-LeCoultre

    Swiss • 1833

    Not all companies in the watchmaking field have been able to stand the test of time quite like Jaeger LeCoultre, also known as the "watchmaker's watchmaker." Founded in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre and originally named LeCoutre, the firm provided watchmaking's top brands, such as Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet, the high-grade, unfinished mechanical movements with which they completed their watches.

    In the early 1900s, Cartier's watch supplier Edmond Jaeger sought out LeCoultre's help in creating the world's thinnest watches. The collaboration resulted in the creation of Cartier's earliest Tank and Santos watches, all housed with LeCoultre movements. The duo decided to merge in 1937, and the firm officially became the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand by which collectors know and adore it today. Some of the firm's most significant and important timepieces include the Reverso, the Memovox, the Atmos clock and, among modern watches, their Master Complications.
