Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin 1000 Hours - Steel

 If you've been following us, you may have noticed an increase in offering of modern pieces from Jaeger-LeCoultre recently.

To be honest, we're not really sure what it is that grabs us about them; it could be their designs, which are indisputably timeless and perpetually appealing.  It could be their quality, which, lets face it- is simply tops.  It could be their value, which certainly plays a role.  Whatever it is, modern pieces from JLC speak to us in very similar tones to the vintage pieces we more commonly lust after and ultimately present in our collection.  There is something about them that exudes an indefinable X-Factor that pushes a piece to be more than the sum of its parts and into the hearts of collectors and enthusiasts.

Indeed, whether it is a Reverso, a heritage edition Deep Sea Alarm, a Geopysic, or a Perpetual Calendar, JLC manages to evoke a stirring emotional response in the hearts of even the most diehard vintage timepiece collector (that'd be yours truly), and more than one of their modern timepieces has found their way into our personal watch boxes.  Alas, we can't keep every watch we want (or this would be a very short lived enterprise) so in the interest of sharing, we present to you this absolutely killer Master Ultra Thin - a modern masterpiece if there ever was one.

Measuring only 5mm thick, this steel-cased dress watch houses a Calibre .849 manual winding movement that was tested for 1000 hours certification before leaving the factory.  An early example with solid case back dating from approximately 2000, this particular example has seen only light use, and has a flawless dial and hands.  Its svelte proportions make it an excellent dress watch, while its sturdy steel case suggest usability in a more regular context.  To be clear, this isn't an ultra-thin watch that you'll forget you're wearing - it is far too beautiful to look away for more than a short time!

Whatever you choose to use it for, this timepiece 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.  Simply perfect.
