The color provides that perfect extra bit of flair that the standard models are missing.

New Jaeger Lecoultre Master Control Date and Calendar: Steel Blue.

 By: amanico : April 26th, 2022-08:05
Of course I will post my review here, most probably in May, but in the meantime, here are two official pictures: Master Control Date Blue: Master Control Calendar Blue: Both steel case, limited to 800 pieces, available through the JLC Boutiques only. No w...  

Really nice designs!

Would it have been nicer if they had adopted the latter date mechanism on the former?


 By: KCLQMULKU : April 26th, 2022-13:59

Looks nice but

The hand design on the calendar is compromised and prevents reading of the day and month. Ulysse Nardin did it right on the perpetual aqua, for example. Not as charming but more functional. I personally prefer their previous blue lacquered dials.

Most people know the day and month...

...with the date being the thing in question. Let's face it, these things are anachronistic at this point. Smart phones will give you all the info you need : )

I could definitely live with the time-only

Very nice shade of 'steel blue' from the pictures and the leather strap even looks nice. Just need to swallow the price...

And in real, even nicer!

Not really a fan of blue dials but…

 By: kev09 : April 26th, 2022-08:37
…this two tone blue is very attractive. Although my French is pretty good in that I know “Automatique” means Automatic I confess I am beaten by “Quantieme a Date Sautante”. A little help with translation would be most welcome. Regards Kev.

It says…

“We had some empty space on the dial and we couldn’t just leave it like that so we decided to write ‘this watch has a jumping date’.” The next version might say in really really small text “Also it has some hands, and day and month windows, plus it’s a su...

Both, in my opinion.

 By: amanico : April 26th, 2022-13:05

Thank you, Nico. What i am worry is that JLC keep making blue dial watches

 By: hoseachandra : April 26th, 2022-09:08
As limited edition for no reason except for the colour. Which make us mere mortal very difficult to acquire one. I don't know any reasons behind this gesture, except as quick and easy money grab.

They missed a trick here

 By: Esharp : April 27th, 2022-00:41
Along with ‘quantième à date sautante’ they could have added ‘cadran bleu, édition limitée’…


 By: amanico : April 27th, 2022-06:48

Very nice.

I wait the chronographe !

+++1 or in Black.

 By: amanico : April 26th, 2022-14:49

This is pink gold (not a fan usually)...

 By: mdg : April 26th, 2022-15:48
...and so thick they don't even give the number. That's a bad sign. How about making something like this? It's gorgeous and I guarantee it's not huge. From the JLC site: ...  

Better...but in so many ways...

 By: mdg : April 26th, 2022-16:18
...watchmakers seem to have forgotten how to make regular-sized, thin, elegant watches. I get that the movement materials have improved, but everything seems so technical now. Where is the art?

And master QP enamel

 By: tombub : April 26th, 2022-13:27

Nah, like the master enamel QP…

 By: tombub : April 26th, 2022-17:33
Just chrono, or chrono QA

 By: proestak : April 26th, 2022-11:30

May... ;)

 By: amanico : April 26th, 2022-14:54

Yes correct,light blue.

 By: proestak : April 26th, 2022-12:35

Thanks good to know.

2 sharp looking pieces

 By: MichaelC : April 26th, 2022-12:30
And 800 each is reasonable, I think those with an interest will secure them.

Me too, a nice detail.

 By: amanico : April 26th, 2022-15:03

Nice ones. I like the calendar the best.

 By: vitalsigns : April 26th, 2022-13:37
Will have to see the blue in person.


 By: mdg : April 26th, 2022-15:15
...the only tiny nitpick is with the graphics/logo (as usual for me) on the Master Control Calendar. But I can overlook that as they are really gorgeous. Even though I have a fairly large wrist, 38-39mm would have been better imho...


 By: watchgeek216 : April 26th, 2022-15:46
Like others have said, I really like the texture of the dial and the contrasting blue around the minute track. I hope the blue calf-skin strap will be available to purchase as well.

Sad these have to be limited

The color provides that perfect extra bit of flair that the standard models are missing.

And elegance, too.

 By: amanico : April 26th, 2022-16:36

In both cases I would have wished to leave out the Arabic numerals

 By: rip9er : April 27th, 2022-00:01
I’d say the Arabic looks better with the date version makes it quirky and sporty but for the calendar i find them out of place.

I noticed at 8mm thickness that’s very nice!

 By: rip9er : April 27th, 2022-00:03
This must mean we can expect new thinner ultra thin watches soon? Because their current ultra thins aren’t really thin for todays standard ha ha

38 or 39 mm.
