    The Jaeger-LeCoultre Triptyque was manufactured to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Reverso in 2006. The Triptyque unites an incredible 18 complications and was the first watch ever to be fitted with three dials. The movement is composed of almost 650 individual parts, 79 jewels and 2 winding barrels, giving the watch an impressive 48 hour of power. It is believed that it took Jaeger-LeCoultre and their huge team over 6 years to design and manufacture this incredible work of horological art.

    Made for the Russian market, the present watch indicates the sunrise/sunset time for the longitude and latitude of Moscow. The time dial showcases the huge tourbillon regulator, which is rotating once a minute. It is also indicating the time, power reserve and 24 hours. Reversing the case, reveals a further two dials, which are indicating the astronomical chart of the Northern hemisphere, zodiac calendar, equation of time and sunrise and sunset. The backplate of the case showcases the moon phases, various date indicators and perpetual calendar.

    The Triptyque is of such magnitude that in order to grasp the incredible nature of its creation, one has to discover it for yourself.

  • 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.
