SIHH 2013…platinum jubilee…


Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin 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.
