  • Catalogue Essay

    The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Tourbillon cased in platinum exemplifies not only elegant proportions and technical finesse but also fine attention to detail. Featuring a slate grey dial with a clever design of an outer date ring, the 15th and 16th of the month are placed purposely at a distance to retain the ample display of a perfectly unobstructed view of the tourbillon. Thanks to the brilliant design of the red-tipped date hand, the wearer can immediately indicate the date of the month with a glance. The Master Tourbillon ref. 165.64.50 is certainly a discreet timepiece for the discerning collector of understated beauty. Numbered 118 of a limited edition of 300 pieces, the present example is preserved in excellent overall condition and accompanied by the full accessories.

  • 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.
