SIHH 2013…platinum jubilee…
This exceptional new model from Jaeger-LeCoultre was inspired by the pocket-watch launched by the manufacture in 1907. A pocket watch which to this day remains the thinnest manually-wound mechanical pocket-watch in the world, but who’s counting. The platinum case is a mere 4.05mm thick, making it the flattest manually-winding mechanical wristwatch in existence. A delightful combination of simplicity and elegance. More looks — including the 1.85mm thin JLC Calibre 849 — below.
