Our own contributor Time2tic got some time with a magnificent Jaeger-LeCoultre and shot two gorgeous photos of one of the most desirable timepieces from from this brand: the Jaeger-Lecoultre Master Minute Repeater 1833 in rose gold, a limited edition of 175 pieces.
One cannot forget a large rose gold watch on the wrist. The weight of the precious metal and its warmth are constant subtle reminders that the incredible watch is there, hiding under the sleeve of the shirt. This particular watch is both an amazing squeletton watch and a minute repeater, and there are only very few models from even fewer brands, which can compete.
If you add to this already pretty face a patented solution of welding the gongs of the minute repeater mechanism to the back of the sapphire glass you obtain one of the most innovative minute repeater of the recent years. The clarity and the power of the sound will seduce you like a mermaid would do at sea.
The finish of the calibre is very close to perfection. I can say that an afternoon with this beauty was surely not long enough, for me, but all good things come to an end. I did have to return it, unfortunately. The memory of its perfect chime is in my memory for a long time…
