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

 By: amanico : September 21st, 2020-23:59
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. 



Very cool one.

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

Totally oil free? [nt]

Ah yes, I remember this one. [nt]

Every time JLC announces something new I always think that this will be the time for a new more affordable version of the Extreme Lab.

So far neither affordable nor new. well.. hopefully, one day.

What a nice watch. So sad there are so few of these! [nt]

Well, at more than 200 K euros, I think that we have a true niche, here. [nt]

at your words ‘oil free’.

This is remarkable. Oil free running of a mechanical movement.

Beside of this, the watch looks stunning also.

Thanks, Weems. [nt]

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

 By: Makilla : September 22nd, 2020-08:19
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. 

And more " exotic " metals, too... [nt]

This One Would Be A Welcome Addition...

 By: elliot55 : September 22nd, 2020-08:39
... To an already JLC'd collection.

Prepare your banker. ;) [nt]

... If you can find one it won't be inexpensive.

Here Is The Closest Thing...

 By: elliot55 : September 22nd, 2020-10:23

That is a great alternative. +1. [nt]

Definitely my favorite in the Compressor line and perhaps my favorite JLC.

 By: M4 : September 22nd, 2020-08:58
I'm not holding my breath that I'll ever see one.


The EL II is a bargain, and easier to get. AND quite technical, too! [nt]

My recollection is that the EL1 is a more manageable size, perhaps 41mm? [nt]

 By: M4 : September 22nd, 2020-12:14
The EL2 is very cool, but quite large I believe.


45 mm from memory. [nt]
