On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Master Control collection, Jaeger-LeCoultre has released three special editions: the Master Control Date, Chronograph e Geographic.
All models share the retro look given by the silver-colored sector dial, made captivating by the blue details of the markers that recall the date window and the skeletonized spheres (without luminescent material).
The simplest watch with regard to complications is the Master Control Date (ref. 1548530). The 39mm steel case is just 8.5mm thick. Inside we find the automatic movement Caliber 899/1 made up of 219 components including the 22ct gold oscillating weight, it has a power reserve of 38 hours. It is an elegant and discreet watch, ideal as a "daily beater". The price is € 6.000
Il Master Control Chronograph (ref. 1538530) perfectly evokes the charm of the chronographs of the past. The vintage look is revisited in a modern way, giving life to what I believe to be the most successful watch in the collection.
The tachymeter scale is present along the perimeter of the dial, where at 3 and 9 o'clock we find the two chronograph counters. The steel case is 39mm and 12.1mm thick. The automatic chronograph movement is the caliber 751G , with a power reserve of 65 hours. Retail price € 8.450
Il Master Geographic (ref. 1428530) is the most 'complicated' model of the trio Master Collection.
On the dial we also find a second reference time and a 'window' at 6 o'clock in which the reference city is displayed.
The second reference time zone can be adjusted using a crown at 10 o'clock. The movement that drives this timepiece is the caliber 939B / 1. Retail price € 9.950
