This year, again Covid Oblige, we'll only have a virtual presentation of the novelties. Allow me to say that it is a real problem, as we cannot feel the watches in real life, and we cannot meet all the watchmakers, designers and people involved in these n

As per a special request, a photo of the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Ultra Thin Flying Tourbillon Minute Repeater Hybris Mechanica 11.

Jaeger Lecoultre Hybris Mechanica 11. Two pictures.
