Inspired by the past and redesigned in the confident spirit of the 21st century, the new Master Control collection combines the creativity and deep know-how of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture
Jaeger-LeCoultre introduces new models to its iconic Master Control collection at this year’s digital Watches and Wonders Geneva. This time around, rather than paying homage to a single historic reference, the Swiss brand relaunched the collection and unveiled a range of timepieces featuring some of its most emblematic complications. There’s a new model with calendar, date and geographic complications, there’s a combination between a chronograph and calendar, and also the grande complication.

Designed for the urban sophisticate, every element of the Master Control collection has been restyled. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s designers have harnessed and modernized the brand’s classical design codes to create a refined yet entirely contemporary aesthetic that highlights the collection’s complications. Moreover, the brand’s engineers have comprehensively revised and updated all of the movements, increasing power reserves to as much as 70 hours and enhancing overall performance and reliability.

More importantly, like all Jaeger-LeCoultre timepieces, the Master Control watches carry an eight-year warranty in addition to the 1,000 Hours Control certification. These are the highlights of the new Master Control collection:
Back in the ’40s and ’50s, Jaeger-LeCoultre was renowned for its triple calendar moon-phase movements. This year, the new Master Control Calendar brings that tradition into the 21st century.
On the other hand, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Chronograph Calendar features a newly developed movement, the Calibre 759, which combines a chronograph with a triple calendar display and a moonphase.
Moreover, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date, anchors the new collection with its cool, silvery-white color palette, minimalist design and refined details.
Meanwhile, rather than indicating only the hour of a second time zone, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Geographic also has a 24-hour night/day indicator and, in an aperture at the bottom of the dial, displays the city name relating to the timezone. This certainly gives travelers the option of setting the second time by location, rather than needing to calculate the time difference.
Last but not least, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication epitomizes the brand’s horological ingenuity and artistic creativity. This limited edition watch incorporates two of the most romantic yet technically challenging complications in horology: A minute repeater and a celestial vault. To top it off, the complex mechanism is further elevated by an orbital flying tourbillon.
