Saw that piece when it was first released and was truly stunned!

A high Tech piece for sure. If my memory serves well, even the Titanium alloy used by JLC is a TiVan 15%. A very hard metal Used for maximum scratch and wear/tear resistance.

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Compressor Extreme Lab One. An Extreme Dream.

The Sea Snake of the Compressor Line. A guess estimate would lead me to think that circa 50 were made. Most probably a bit less. The " Oil Free " watch, by JLC. There are few chances you can see one " in the wild ". Yes, a dream, a fantasy. Best, Nicolas ...
Very cool one.

I remember panerai also producing an oil free watch with a 50yrs warranty 😎.
My eye fell

at your words ‘oil free’. This is remarkable. Oil free running of a mechanical movement. Waauw. Beside of this, the watch looks stunning also.

This was such a cool era from JLC.
Yeah, No Kidding...

... If you can find one it won't be inexpensive.
Definitely one of JLC's greatest!

Very unfortunate that this tech hasn't found its way into more watches, especially considering this was released over a decade ago. Is there a particular reason it's so hard to produce an oil-free watch?
