Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Perpetual

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Perpetual

From its inception and to the present day, Jaeger-LeCoultre has produced timepieces that are both timeless and perpetually-appealing. Though their quality is often under-sung, 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. 

For a modern watch, the Master Control Perpetual looks as though it could be fifty years old, and we mean that in a good way--a very good way. With its slim 37mm stainless steel case and sub-registers with month, day, date, and moon-phase indicators arranged artfully on the dial, this watch features many of the favorite design elements of some of our favorite mid-century wristwatches. It’s about as understated as a perpetual calendar can get. 

It has the look and feel of an older watch, but with the technical excellence and dependability that distinguishes their modern products. This watch is powered by the elegant Caliber 889/440/2 movement. JLC, as a true manufacture, designs and manufactures its movements to meet rigorous quality standards. Each movement produced by JLC must pass a 1000-hour test before leaving the factory. This test, more punishing than even the tests imposed by COSC, is implemented only by JLC. 

The Master Control series--which was supplanted in the mid 2000s by the Master Ultra Thin series--exudes the brilliance of modern design coupled with the emotional connection only a brand with the gravitas and wherewithal of Jaeger-LeCoultre could pull off. Our Master Control Perpetual--complete with its original box and papers--rests in a comfortable realm between luxury and practicality, at home in both casual and professional environments. It's the perfect combination of vintage elegance and modern ingenuity, testament to the gravitas with which JLC imbues all of its timepieces.
