2 improved pictures of the Jaeger Lecoultre Master 8 Days Perpetual Calendar Skeleton.
Bigger size picture, cleaned, reworked... This watch is a marvel.
I saw it at the SIHH, in 2007, which was a terrific year for the Manufacture, as Jaeger Lecoultre unveiled the Master Compressor Extreme Lab One, the Duometre à Chronographe, another version of the Amvox II, the DBS, and, last but not least... The Gyrotourbillon 2, among other watches...
It was love at third sight, as love at first sight was for or with the Duometre à Chronographe and the Extreme Lab One. I knew I will have the Duometre, that was clear to me, and I worked on the idea to get the 8 Days Perpetual Skeleton. Which happened in September 2009.
I have something for the Perpetual Skeletons: I am totally in love with the Royal Oak PC Skeleton, for example. But this Jaeger Lecoutlre was, in my heart, a bit above, because of its 8 Days movement, which is a plus for a perpetual calendar, as it allows you to wind it only once each 8 or 9 days.
Some will say that it is not the most legible perpetual calendar, and I agree on that point. But since we admire time more than we read it...
It is one of these watches I regret having let it go... I never found a perpetual calendar which enchanted me more than this one...
