SIHH 2019: Some thoughts on the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Ultra Thin Date.
The Master Ultra Thin Date first came in the catalogue in 2014, in rose gold, then, in 2015, in steel.
This watch had a 40 mm case, 7, 45 mm high.
We also had the Champagne dial, unveiled in 2016.
This year, Jaeger Lecoultre revisits this model.
With a smaller case, first, which is now 39 mm, a tad thicker: 7, 8 mm.
And with a redesigned dial, especially the indices, longer, and with a more subtle sunburst dial.
It is available in steel,
And in rose gold.
The movement is the same than the one which is housed in the former versions, the Cal 899, with a bit short power reserve of 38 hours and 28, 800 vibrations per hour.
My feelings? Jaeger Lecoultre gave some extra elegance and refinement to this watch. I regret the mention " automatique " once again, which I find totally unnecessary, and the date, as most often...
Looking forward to reading your comments and thoughts,
