  • Catalogue Essay

    The Master Control collection is the expression of a watchmaking tradition that has been meticulously refined by Jaeger LeCoultre. Featuring a wide range of functions, the Master Control models bring together a classic appearance and technical features. It is the brand's first line that has benefited from the “1,000 hour test” which inspired its name.
    Launched in 1998, the Master Control Geographic is distinguished by its dynamic design and contemporary elegance. Thanks to a second dial at 6 o’clock, this model indicates at a glance the exact time in another of the world's cities. A day and night indicator has been added to avoid any confusion and the model is further equipped with a calendar and a reverse power reserve.
    Composed of two watches, this lot presents the black and the silver version of the reference. Both are in excellent condition and the black version even appears unworn and complete with box, guarantee and product literature.
    A classic of traditional watchmaking, this set is a great opportunity for lovers of far-flung destinations to complete their collection with two modern world time watches.

  • Artist Biography


    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.
