The Jaeger Le-Coultre Duometre series is one of the most understated giants falling under the Haute Horlogerie category of fine watch-making. For this collection, what is inside matters just as much if not more than what is outside. The Duometre welcomes precision and efficiency by running on two separate watch mechanisms powered by two independent reserves. This is the unique ‘Dual-Wing’ calibre which is characteristic to the profile of Duometre watches. Each mechanism has a 50 hour power reserve, one of which serves to fuel the revolutionary Chronograph, handling the secondary functions such as the display of hours, minutes, seconds, calendar, moonphase and a ‘foudroyante’ seconds display with zero reset. The second mechanism is solely devoted to timekeeping. The dial is extremely ideal with slender hands and an uncluttered, pleasing body. The watch is adorned with case colours such as rose gold, simple silver and white gold. Elegant black or pearl white faces complete the air of sophistication that this collection carries. Astronomy lovers are in for a treat as Jaeger Le-Coultre intertwines watch-making and astronomy to create the Duometre Spherotourbillon Moon that portrays moonphase in glamorous, soul-searching tones on the dial.
