The starting point of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre watch is a revolution, since, since then, it has given the watch both precision and unprecedented complexity. The perfect combination of precision and unique style, technical performance and complex structure, showing the classic and elegant beauty. Today, Watch House brings you a Jaeger-LeCoultre biplane moon phase calendar watch, the official model of the watch is: Q6042521.
When conceiving the new Dual-Wing wing movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre not only aims to introduce the core device of the new Duomètre series, but also hopes to write a new page in the history of watchmaking. Historically, if a traditional movement is both responsible for indicating the time and adding complex functions, it will bring risks to the accuracy of operation. The best watchmakers do their utmost to overcome the limitations of physical laws and micromechanics. It is difficult for them to create a movement that simultaneously meets excellent technical performance, precise timing and beautiful appearance. So, you have to choose between these three options.
The watch is made of 18K rose gold with a diameter of 40 mm. The dial adopts a classic and simple style, which more reveals the unique source of the aesthetics of the pocket watch, which makes the calendar and moon phase display more beautiful.
Dual-Wing’The starting point of the Duomètre watch is a revolution, because since then, it has given the watch both precision and unprecedented complexity.
The creation of Jaeger-LeCoultre biplanes is also an opportunity. Suddenly one day, there is such an idea. If you don’t stick to improving the existing technology, but start from scratch? What if instead of just improving, choose to revolutionize completely? The ‘Dual-Wing’ bi-wing design concept came into being, and two sets of independent mechanical devices are assembled in the same case: one is responsible for indicating the time, and the other is in charge of complex functions. Two sets of independent mechanical devices are assembled in the same case? If this is the case, Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmakers can only create a masterpiece of miniature watches. But they went a step further and connected the two devices to the same adjustment mechanism to ensure that the watch had the accuracy of an astronomical watch.
The elegant watch has an arc-shaped design. The thickness of the watch is 13.2 millimeters, and it feels very comfortable to wear on the wrist. The watch is equipped with a brown alligator strap, 18K rose gold pin buckle design, easy to wear.
The watch’s 40.5 mm white grained crystal dial is set with numerals. At 10 o’clock on the dial face of the watch, there is a pointer date display device, and a small dial date display device is provided with a moon phase profit and loss display device, which is delicate and beautiful in design. The watch has an hour and minute indicator at 3 o’clock, while the small dial at 6 o’clock is a small sixth.
This watch has two barrels inside. There are two power reserve display devices at 5 o’clock and 7 o’clock on the watch. The power reserve display at 7 o’clock on the watch shows the kinetic energy display on the date, 5 o’clock. The kinetic energy reserve of the clock position shows the kinetic energy of the watch during normal movement.
The watch is equipped with a cal.381 manual-winding movement with a total of 369 precision parts. It can provide a power reserve of 50 hours after full winding. The dual barrel design has a total of 40 gems. The movement is finely polished, seeing the shadow of a German watch, a bit of German silver.
Summary: If the theory has made watch enthusiasts imaginative, then just wait to make the theory a reality. The Jaeger-LeCoultre watch series is the best proof of turning theory into reality. At present, the price of this watch in domestic Henry is 304,000 yuan. Interested friends can go to the store for more details. (Picture / text watch home Chen Zhongyun)
