Jaeger LeCoultre Master Control Calendar

Jaeger LeCoultre Master Control Calendar

Why We Love It

Its fairly safe to say that in this day and age, Jaeger LeCoultre doesn't quite get the respect that they deserve.

That is not to say that they aren't held in high regard. But the level of innovation, craftsmanship, and design that JLC has demonstrated over the course of their existence simply cannot be understated. This particular watch, the Master Control Calendar, is the perfect example of what happens when horological tradition and innovation combine.

Though released in 2000, the Master Control Calendar could pass for a watch 60 years its senior. It takes design cues from calendar wristwatches released in the 1940s, but updated to modern tastes. The vintage touches are there - a stainless steel case with almost impossibly-bright finishing, realized in 37mm to suit the modern wrist. The distinctive red-tipped central date hand and an elegant calendar track on the outer rim of the dial provide a dynamic and unique means of telling the date. 

With its elegant case and complicated movement, this watch hearkens back to the days of old, but is also robust enough to be both a dress watches and a daily driver.

In terms of elegant design and horological prowess, this a watch that punches way above its weight class.

The Story 

From its inception and on to the present day, Jaeger-LeCoultre has produced timepieces that are both timeless and perpetually-appealing. Though their quality is often dramatically underrated, JLC's present-day pieces sing to us in the same soft, alluring timbre as their vintage offerings. With understated elegance, they exude an appeal that even the most steadfast of vintage collectors can't resist. 

We love JLC in part because they are a true manufacture, producing a wide range of in-house movements. With a cadre of truly iconic pieces - among them the Reverso, the Deep Sea Alarm, the Memovox, the Geophysic (both the 1958 original and the 2014 reissue), and the Mark XI, to name a few - JLC has managed to encompass both technical and aesthetic brilliance.
