I wonder if it's possible to just put the year window at the back..

Granted that it may not be easy to do being an ultra thin and all. But its info that you don't need to be reminded of every day. Plus, I don't even mind having a sealed case back with just an small window showing the year perhaps.

Having said that, if I were in the market for a perp, this would be on my number one list. It is very beautiful and prefer it over the silver dial version.

Thanks for showing pics of it from time to time smile

Best, Echi

Among the 25 000 pictures I lost in September 2017, there were several photos of the Master Ultra Thin 39 Perpetual " Black ". So I had to take some fresh ones during my last visit at the Jaeger Lecoultre Manufacture. In my opinion, this is the coolest ve...  

An excellent JLC...

perfect size and thickness. I would be an improvement if they could redesign the year window or even better delete it. It’s crazy not to be able to adjust the calendar through the crown.

How can we fail with such wonderful people [nt]

"this is the coolest version of the MUT 39 Perpetual, to date" I seconded that

And the year window has a lot of meaning to me - Time never goes back, so to treasure every moment ...  

I have many wristshots on this watch, some being better photographed

But this shows the year more prominently, trying to persuade other purists that it's actually not too obtrusive

Thanks, Henry. [nt]

I have finally seen this in the metal and I’ve re-thought my view on the date

I actually find it to be an interesting detail because it is a feature that’s rarely seen on other watches. It also underscores the fact that the nature of this complication is that no resetting is needed for hundreds of years, and having an actual window... 

black dial is a beauty !

i don't recollect which brand...i recently saw a PC model where the year window is taken to the 'case back' view so it doesn't break the dial symmetry. despite the year-window, i like this version over the new version...i think in this version 'everything...
