Jaeger-Lecoultre Watches at Inglourious Basterds Berlin Premiere

Aug 24, 2009
In the course of the recent premiere of Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds", that took place on July 28th, the renowned Swiss watch-making house Jaeger-LeCoultre drew almost as much attention as the actors themselves.

Alongside with Diane Kruger, the brand’s graceful ambassador, acting the part of Bridget von Hammersmark in the film in question, Christian Berkel, Inglorious Basterds co-star and his wife, actress Andrea Sawatzki, were wearing the elegant creations by Jaeger-LeCoultre, while posing for the photos on the red carpet.

The timepiece, Diane Kruger decided on, is a true pride of the brand. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Joaillerie 101 Art Deco watch, created for ladies, demonstrates a case and a matching bracelet, rendered in 18-karat white gold. The timepiece features more than 180 round brilliant diamonds overall.

The model is animated by the manual winding Calibre 101 movement, which has been regarded as the tiniest caliber in the world since it was unveiled in 1929, meaning for 80 years. Its unbelievably small space of 3.2mm incorporates about 100 individual elements. The ultra low weight of the movement is about a gram. It is a true artistic creation, which allows the brand to continuously create spectacular high-end jewelry watches for women, featuring the highest level of Art Deco refinement and beauty.

Christian Berkel and Andrea Sowatzki exposed on their wrists the watches from Jaeger-LeCoultre's famous Master Compressor line. Both elegant and resolutely sporty Master Compressor Chronograph Lady watch, showing up on Andrea Sowatzki's wrist, reveals a case and bracelet crafted in polished steel, a black dial with lustrous hour markers, as well as a bezel, sparkling with perfectly matched round brilliant diamonds.

The Master Compressor Chronograph watch for women is powered by the 631 movement, executed entirely by Jaeger-LeCoultre. It is composed of more than 200 individual details and joined to a precise battery-equipped quartz motor.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Chronograph watch, chosen by Mr. Berkel, represents a peerless blend of durability, unique design and high degree of excellence, which is in character of Swiss watchmaking industry. The watch is animated by the Jaeger-LeCoultre 731 automatic movement, which offers a chronograph complication with a rotating disc for hour indication, an iconic elapsed minutes sub-dial, a date display, as well as a tachymeter scale enabling the average speeds’ measurement.

The Master Compressor Chronograph watch boasts 100-meter water-resistance, which is attainable due to an alliance of the signature compression key crown and the chronograph pushers, equipped in the similar way.
