Hands-On: The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Perpetual Calendar With Black Dial, New For 2016
We have a similar 39 mm case, a similar self-winding production JLC development, the very astute showcase that incorporates both moon stage and entire year – simply in dark. The dark dial set against the high-cleaned hands is truly striking, and I could see this watch worn on a cool calf tie to dress it down.
As I referenced when this watch came out, I love just seeing genuine top of the line watchmaking in steel cases with an easygoing vibe. Haute horlogery shouldn’t be so haute, you know? This watch demonstrates it, and once more, you’re getting a coordinated production development from a set up fine watchmaker for an extraordinary price.
The cost of the new steel Perpetual Calendar with dark dial from JLC? $20,400. How might you contend with that?
