Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new Master Ultra Thin Squelette collection is a result of successful alliance between the watchmaking art and rare handcrafts. Meticulously crafted by master watchmakers, artistic craftsmen and gem setters from the prestigious Swiss watch manufacture that safeguards 180 fine skills, the Master Ultra Thin Squelette collection follows the footsteps of Hybris Artistica collection, a highly exclusive haute horlogerie collection from Jaeger-LeCoultre.
As the name indicates, this collection successfully merges the art of skeletonising with ultra thin watch making, a longstanding tradition mastered by Jaeger-LeCoultre since 1907. In this new collection, which is available in four versions, the Grande Maison has chosen to associate the ultra thin horology with other spheres of excellence, skeleton working, engraving, enamelling and gem-setting.
The Rare Handcrafts (Métiers Rares®) featured on both the front and back of the watch are the very essence of these models presented in four different interpretations. Each Master Ultra Thin Squelette watch represents perfectly thought-out, seamless integration of design, watchmaking artistry and exceptional expertise.
Each of the hour zones is adorned with natural white mother-of-pearl that is hand-engraved to texture this delicate material. This technique also gives a unique rhythm to the dial via a kinetic effect. Finally, the fire of the brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel sets the crowning touch to this masterfully sophisticated design. The Master Ultra Thin Squelette gem-set version flaunts its charms on each of its surfaces. On its 38 millimetre-diameter case measuring just 4.7 millimetres thick, the slender case band has been meticulously hand engraved. Finally, the back of the watch provides an identical replica of the watch face. The hour zones are also adorned with engraved mother-of-pearl, forming a glowing ring around the skeleton movement visible through the sapphire crystal.
The Master Ultra Thin Squelette gem-set version comes in a graphic white gold or a warm pink gold version. Each model is issued in a 100-piece limited series.
