The crowning achievement of Jaeger-LeCoultre in celebrating its 180th anniversary, this new Grand Complication watch with an aesthetic inspired by the pocket-watches of the 19th century is the third Jaeger-LeCoultre Grand Complication model to be equipped with a Gyrotourbillon, but the first to be equipped with a Flying Gyrotourbillon.  One very intriguing innovation in this piece is its spherical balance-spring — yes, it is spherical, and yes, it will impress you.  It is also equipped with a chronograph with an instantaneous digital display activated by a monopusher.

Limited to 75 pieces, this piece is available individually or as a set of 3 platinum timepieces in the Jubilee collection (together with Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique Jubilee and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Jubilee.  Purchasers of the 3-watch set will receive all three pieces with the same serial number.

All the looks you can handle, below.
