  • Catalogue Essay

    The present tourbillon wristwatch is much inspired by the dashboard counters in the exquisite Aston Marin automobiles. Encased in pink gold and ceramic, the watch features a skeletonised hand for the second time zone along with a day and night indicator. The date is indicated on the outer edge of the dial and the hand jumps from the 31st to the 1st, which completely skip past the aperture for the tourbillon carriage and do not obstruct the view of the tourbillon mechanism. Limited to 300 pieces only, the present watch is in excellent overall condition.

  • 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.
