And exactly the point I was making on my recent visit to the Maison. I'd love to see and EL3 in a 42mm max.....

A view on the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Extreme Lab One, with some fresh pictures.

There are some watches I always ask to see when I visit the Manufacture, and the Extreme Lab 1 is one of them. The reasons behind this obsession are simple: - This watch is extraordinary from a technical point of view, it shouldn't be forgotten: It is the...  

Very cool piece without a doubt

Would be very interesting to see in the real. 45mm on paper not small but otherwise everything about it is super cool. Personally would love to see a non-tourbillion 41mm version of an extreme lab using the material in this one...

+1 on both suggestions.

Oh, and ditch the carbon fiber case sides. Man, I can see it! M4

Thank you for sharing The Extreme Lab 1 shows how avant garde JLC engineering team is. How many in total productions?

The Extreme Lab amazes me because I know its son. Especially the more I wear and use my EL II and enjoy it, I think what it would be like to put on the father and enjoy its tourbillon. A watch that proves that JLC is the watchmaker's watchmaker.

Awesome report . . .

The Extreme Lab 1 is soooooo good. I can't tell you how excited I'd be if JLC introduced a new sports line with a "Extreme Lab 3" at the top of range. The fact this piece is NOT a chronograph makes it even more appealing to me. And . . . I love the date d... 

The Extreme LAB 3 has to be the TOP of the new sports range.

The most innovative and complex 'The Pinnacle'.... a creation that can only allow us to dream. Out of reach for most of us

It was cool 10 years ago and it is still cool today! And I want one.

Thanks for sharing the awesome pictures and the detail descriptions. I saw this rare BEAST in Watches and Wonders a few years ago and I was immediately seduced by it ever since. I noticed in the 1st picture the crown is red but in the other pictures the c... 

The big difference between the One and the Three, digital Chrono / tourbillon apart is that the Lab One is a lubricant free movement. The rotor is the only common point.

As for the crown, I only saw it in this configuration so I can't tell you. Best, my friend. Nicolas

Thank Nicolas for the quick respond.

I think you have mistaken my question. I meant the difference between the Lab 1's Cal. 988C vs the Amvox 3's Cal. 988. I have managed to find an old post of yours, explaining that the Amvox 3's Cal 988 is a Cal 978 from the Master Tourbillon with the orig... 

Very cool watches, and have not seen pics of the EL1 in some time.

Based on this and the EL2, if a EL3 came in 41-42mm I would likely get in line!

The more we are to say or write that, the better our chances are. They didn't say yes, but they didn't say no, either... Now,

The complication(s), the way they display it ( them ), the technical solutions... It is a wide thing. As wide as exciting...

This is true.

 By: willski : August 3rd, 2017-07:38
Which is why the Grande Maison should rise to the challenge and include such innovations in a nice case size

Well noted. [nt]

You know what I think ;) GRAIL.

Awaiting the LAB III... 41mm would be a dream! I really like the tourbillon As long as the next has the Gyrolab balance an evolved or NEW concept case with some epic tricks... I will be happy!
