Jaeger Lecoultre Master Ultra Thin Jubilée Platinum 39. A forgotten star?
In 2013, Jaeger-Lecoultre unveiled a spectacular watch, the Master Ultra Thin Jubilée in a 39 mm platinum case, whose thinness was remarkable with a height of only 4, 05 mm, which is 0, 15 mm thinner than the Master Ultra Thin 34.
How can it be spectacular?
If I show you these 2 pictures, you will tell me that it is understated, hyper sober, austere, for some of us, serious... But spectacular?
The case back is not spectacular, as well. It has the good taste to not show the movement, the Cal 849, which is totally lost in such a " big " case.
But now, if I show you this picture...
Now we can say it is spectacular.
This profile is just breathtaking.
And the density of the platinum gives some pleasant consistence to the case.
To me, this " MUT 39 Jubilée " is one of the stars of our modern times. Surprisingly, we don't often discuss it. Forgotten?
