Jaeger Lecoultre Master Ultra Thin Perpetual Calendar 39 mm. The three original versions.

Aug 06, 2022,09:25 AM
 

In one picture: Steel, white gold and rose gold. ( Steel on the right, white gold on the left ).





These first three received a warm welcome, in 2013, and rightly so. 

Still, my favorite remains the steel black which came two years after. 




Over the white gold grey ( 2017 )



Or the white gold guilloché blue enamel ( 2019 ).



You? 

Best,

Nicolas

WG white with grain dial, like the dial texture. Next will be Steel Black dial. Best, Mahesh., ...  

I adore the grey version

Such a wonderful watch. Never once saw a perpetual calender in the wild. It is an esoteric man’s watch I believe. Someone who reads a lot. I think my grand-dad has a perpetual calender hidden in his collection. Not close to him, so I think I will never se... 

It is a cool geek’s watch

Just look at those commenting on this post - i know one is a cool geek and another got into cool details of out-of-sync perpetuals.

I don’t wear it much in the summer…

… but it does get worn quite frequently in the cooler months! ...  

Badaboom... Beautiful!

I also purchased a grey strap from JLC

 
 By: Timeout : August 6th, 2022-18:15
which has less contrast than the black alligator. ...  

Nice. Well done.

+1 Black

IMHO the Blue is too much of a good thing. Perhaps more gorgeous yet less versatile.

I am sure Dr Strange would also choose Black

 
 By: Gelato Monster : August 6th, 2022-10:06
had it launched first.

Hehe... I do think so!

I've always admired the MUT Perpetual...

 
 By: JCF81 : August 6th, 2022-09:59
...but fear that the simplified design with reduced adjusters is less practical than it appears. A single pusher for everything does not help if the calendar goes out of sync. It takes a brief time to look around, say in chrono24, to find examples of out ...  

I usually prefer a black dial to a silver one

 
 By: whatmakesmetick (andrea) : August 6th, 2022-10:12
But I love the silver dial version ot this piece, I hope to be able to get one in the future

Very elegant, indeed.

 
 By: amanico : August 6th, 2022-17:25

Very class, for sure.

UN UN UN!

Ludwig’s perpetual calender is nice. Forward backward no problemo. I’m hoping u’d get that piece among the sea of perpetual calenders you’d been assessing.

No you are not! ;)

 
 By: amanico : August 6th, 2022-17:28

True that. Thanks, Ping.

Power versus elegance...

 
 By: amanico : August 6th, 2022-17:28

I think I would go for the white gold!

Lovely ref

The blue dial with enamel over guilloche is my favorite. I'd love to find one show up on market. I just love how it is so dramatic, art deco styling. My favorite in thay series was the moon version however. The WG grey dial my favorite after that. Overall... 

I think that

 
 By: riversidebird / henry : August 6th, 2022-14:26
the steel version is unbeatable, given its highly competitive price.

White gold grey here.

the white gold case with blue enameled guilloché dial does it for me

 
 By: j.jota : August 6th, 2022-19:36
...but the MSRP on that one, yikes (!)

Yes, big ouch...

I would be quire happy wit any of the above.

 
 By: Thomas_3 : August 6th, 2022-23:06
All are beautiful.

I love reading the discussions here! All models look nice to me!

I own this piece since early 2019 and it was indeed an excellent value when I bought it. Once, the date/day were out of sync and had to send it in for service. It is a keeper to remain in my collection. ...  

Dr Strange 🤩

Six years ago, I let go my black steel version. How lucky I got this boutique exclusive steel version ie Dr strange watch pre owned in mint condition ! ...  

Lovely, indeed!

 
 By: amanico : August 7th, 2022-07:52

We'll have many others.

 
 By: amanico : August 7th, 2022-21:26

Hmm.. My first thought would maybe be the blue..

 
 By: hs111 : August 7th, 2022-17:36
..with this Guilloché dial, but more realistically it is the black dial, I might pick, if I was to change to a more up-to-date one.. As in fact I have an older Master PC in WG,with 8 days PR (which I got in 2018, used but in very good condition) with the ... 

Here you go !..

Although I am quite happy with it, guess I shoud have chosen the black one, (back in 2015), when it still was quite affordable also in the New.. But honestly, mainly take it to theatre, and rather in the cooler months. - Already had played with the though...
