Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar Meteorite Dial Watch (SIHH 2015)

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar Meteorite Dial Watch (SIHH 2015)

by Guillaume V - 09/12/2014

During SIHH 2013, Jaeger-LeCoultre showcased its “new” version of the Master Calendar - inspired by a model manufactured around 1945.

Two years later, as the SIHH 2015 is approaching, the house from the Sentier (Paris) is showcasing an evolution of this model with a dial that is absolutely unique.

Whereas the model showcased in 2013 has a silver sunray-finished dial, the 2015 version has a dial made of meteorite stones. A perfect illustration of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s fascination for the stars.

This may seem as a detail but this new dial is a real revolution in the watch’s style because of its “unstructured” look. Indeed, the structure of the material used has numerous small bumps and scratches.

To create the dials, the raw meteorite stone block is cut in fine slices with unique patterns. Thus, every watch becomes even more exclusive.

The meteorite stone used, found and registered in Sweden, is most probably coming from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter... Another argument that will increase the fascinating aspect of this timepiece.

 

                   

 

Apart from that, there are almost no changes compared to the 2013 model. The new version with meteorite dial still offers - thanks to a 866 caliber - a complete calendar: day of the week, date, month and, moon phases. Two versions are available: one is made of pink gold and the other of steel. Also, dimensions are identical to that of the original model of 2013: 39 mm of diameter for less than 11 mm of thickness.
