Mar 22, 2008
Jaeger-LeCoultre watches represent authentic timepieces inspired by remarkable horological feats and outstanding experience of the company founded by Antoine LeCoultre.

You will discover the name of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Company on the list of the most prestigious Swiss watch-making companies. Numerous Jaeger-LeCoultre achievements revolutionized the horology field. The company was commissioned to design and manufacture movements for other renowned watch brands in Switzerland.

The history of the company marked the elaboration of about 1000 calibers and over 220 patented inventions. The first watch under the brand's name appeared in 1929. Till that moment Antoine LeCoultre and the craftsmen in his workshop were actively involved in horological research. As a result, the world of watchmaking witnessed the appearance of the Millionometer, a keyless winding system.

The workshop developed the thinnest pocket watch movement in the world, as well the innovative Duoplan two stage movements and the caliber 101 - the tiniest watch movement.

The most popular Jaeger LeCoultre watch lines are the following - Reverso, Master, Grande Complication, Amvox, Joaillerier, Ideale, and Atmos.

The Jaeger LeCoultre Master collection was introduced in 1992 and the first models to enter the collection were Master Grande Taille and Master Date watches. The Master collection generally consists of classically styled watches that would probably remind you watches of the 50-s. The collection was joined by a range of variations - the Master Ultra Thin, the Master Lady, the Master Geographique and the Master Memovox.

The collection of Jaeger LeCoultre Master watches offers an originally styled Master Compressor Chronograph. This watch will greatly suit any style of a modern man - from a classic to more unconventional one. The watch is elegant and sporty at the same time.

This Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Chronograph is powered by the first manufacture automatic chronograph movement. The watch features an 18K rose gold case with a dark brown dial. This is a rather big-sized timepiece - its case measures 41.5 mm in diameter - just a good size for a man's wrist. The watch's designers created especially elegant case lugs.

The Jaeger LeCoultre watch goes on a stylish brown leather strap with white stitches finely matching its chocolate look and enhancing the overall masculine appeal of the timepiece.

The Master Compressor Chronograph is provided with the brand's patented compression key system incorporated within the chronograph push-buttons. Each crown demonstrates red and white enamel indicating arrows, with the white arrows indicating when the crown is secure and water resistant, and the red arrows indicating the crown is non-secure/non-water resistant. When the crown is secure it compresses a gasket that guarantees water resistance. The inner ring has the tachometric scale that allows the watch's owner to measure the average speed of travel.

Jaeger LeCoultre Master Compressor is the right choice for a gentlemen who likes classically styled items with distinctively mannish appeal. The technical and aesthetic characteristics of the watch will satisfy a man's need for aesthetic and technical excellence.
