  • Catalogue Essay

    The present Duomètre Quantième Lunaire collection by Jaeger-LeCoultre is one of the most engaging creations by the company. Symmetrical in design, the present white gold variant fitted with a black dial with silver accents, the blue from the moon phases stands out with stunning elegance.

    Powering this timepiece is the calibre 381 movement that employs a Dual-Wing concept. Turning the watch over, the marvel of the mechanism decorated with a radiating Côtes de Genève pattern is exhibited in its glory. Like two hearts in one movement, the Dual-Wing concept brings two independent mechanisms under a single regulating part. The first mechanism is dedicated to the functional display of the complications such as the hours, minutes, seconds, date and moon phases. Whereas the second ensures the precise measurement of time even down to 1/6th of a second. This enables the watch to optimize accuracy and run as precisely as a chronometer. Furthering enhancing the accuracy, the watch is also set with a feature that resets the seconds hand when the crown is pulled.

    The present watch is numbered 117 of a limited edition of 200 pieces only. Offered in excellent overall condition, the watch exemplifies how Jaeger-LeCoultre excels at creating high horology.

  • 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.
