Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Chronograph Ceramic

Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced only one new sport watch this year, the Master Compressor Chronograph in a new 46mm ceramic case.  The hands and indications stand out clearly against the semi-matt black dial ensuring good readability; the bold red hand is the center-set chronograph seconds (running seconds is on the sub at 6 o’clock).  As with all Master Compressor timepieces, this piece has Jaeger-LeCoultre’s patented compression key (part of the crown) for optimal water resistance — a single half-turn of this key effectively overcompresses one of the crown’s four toric gaskets and locks it in a security position that prevents any inadvertent handling.
