Jaeger Lecoultre new Master Control Line: Some close ups of the dials.
I posted an article on the new Master Control line, last week. today I suggest we have a closer look on the dials.
I had the idea to isolate the dials and to focus on them, to show the sunburst finish and some other details.
Indeed, when you look at the pictures I posted last week, you don't see these details very well. As well on the Masthead photo of this post.
Let's start with the Master Control Date.
Here you see the brushed Dauphine Hands, contrasting with the polished applied 12, or the long and slim applied triangle indices. You can also notice the more centered 12 and 6. AND, last but not least, the sunburst dial.
Same observation for the Master Control Calendar, with some extra details, such as the 31 of the date in red, the JL logo shaped date pointer, the delicious new moon phase, and the circular finish of the moon phase sub dial.
Without forgetting the date which jumps from the 15th to the 16th!
Of course the Master Control Géographique borrows the same elements of design, but adds the new 3 / 9 / 12 applied hour markers, the long triangle indices which " spouse " the convex minute markers, the redesigned power reserve and half blue night and day indicator, and the reshaped cities window.
And last but not least, the new star of the collection, the Master Chronograph Calendar, with its superb balanced dial. A detail which may have escaped to you, the circular decoration of the pulsometer ring.
The small touches of red and blue give some pleasant life to this dial.
I really appreciate the work made by Jaeger Lecoultre on these dials.No doubt that they will age quite well.
