For the novel movement, the Dual-Wing is divided into two mechanisms - the first is responsible for local time and the second for an additional time zone. Each mechanism offers a 50-hour power reserve. To guarantee remarkable user-friendliness, one can use the same crown for winding both barrels.
The day and night indicator and hour disc are found at 6 o'clock for at-a-glance reading. The dial gives a feeling of a perfect balance, featuring two symmetrically arranged counters. It is important to mention that the numbers 7 and 9 are accentuated in red as a tribute to the Jaeger-LeCoultre Boutique.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 383 incorporates 498 parts. The 54-jewel movement is beating at the frequency of 21 600 vibrations per hour. The bridges and gear train of the movement are hand-chamfered and demonstrate polished troughs. The wheels, hand-chamfered or embellished with polished troughs as well, are snailed or softened. This refined decoration has been inspired by the brand's pocket watches. You can admire it via the sapphire crystal case-back.
The 42mm case of the new Jaeger-LeCoultre watch is fashioned in 18K white gold. The outside part of the case- back is engraved with the names of cities, each for 24 time zones of the world. The case is teamed with an alligator leather strap.
