Endowed with all the aesthetic codes and horological content of the Duomètre collection, the new Duomètre Unique Travel Time by JaegerLeCoultre asserts its personality by embracing a rare decorative technique.
Jaeger-LeCoultre has chosen to endow this new creation with a finely chiselled dial. This subtly textured watch face represents the distinctive, individualised and ‘touch of madness’ characterising the Duomètre Unique Travel Time. Each tiny bump or ridge bears the imprint of the master artisan who has lavished such dexterity on creating it. The dial is unique in terms of its appearance that is at once rough and delicate, as well as because the work of the artisan is entirely free, guided only by personal talent and never exactly identical.
The domed globe representing the earth is a playful reminder of the kind of globe people love to spin on its axis. The gaze lingers pleasurably on the satinfinish counters creating a delightful contrast with the chiselled dial and the appliques that provide a certain sense of volume.
The mechanical movement that beats inside is also the object of refined finishes, including hand-bevelled German silver bridges and the exclusive “côtes soleillées” developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre. This concern for both outer and inner decoration is inspired by the grand tradition of pocket-watches by the Grande Maison and confirms the innate kinship of the Duomètre Unique Travel Time with the spirit of Haute Horlogerie. Finally, the back of the watch reveals the engraved names of the cities corresponding to the 24 time zones.
