Jaeger-LeCoultre and Marc Newson - Meet Atmos 566
On April, 14th, the CEO of Jaeger-LeCoultre Jerome Lambert and the Australian designer Marc Newson proudly announced their latest creation, named Atmos 566. The Press Conference, held in Milan, saw the attendance of more than 80 persons.

Two years ago, on the occasion of the Atmos’ 80th birthday, the Australian designer Marc Newson was given a free hand in recreating the renowned clock. Suspended in a bubble block of Baccarat crystal, the Atmos 561 clock by Marc Newson struck the eye with its pure and modern curves.

This year, the designer decided to continue his collaboration with the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand. Captivated by the charm of the complex horological mechanisms, he has opted for creating a new exterior for the Calibre 566 movement, which animated the functions of Atmos Astronomique, introduced in 2008. Marc Newson artfully turned the Baccarat crystal of the Atmos 566 into a second skin. read more

Jaeger-LeCoultre Presents Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication Watch
Jaeger-LeCoultre is proud to unveil its novel Grand Complication timepiece to join its prestigious Master Grand Tradition line.

The creators of the timepiece have managed to interpret astronomical timekeeping for the wrist. The pulsing heart of a flying tourbillon performs rotations around the dial that demonstrates a sky-chart of the Northern Hemisphere.

The tourbillon is not counting the passing minutes of the official 24-hour day – instead, it is counting the time of the Sidereal Day that is about 4 minutes shorter than the solar day. You will notice a tiny sun rotating around on the outer spheres of the dial, showing zodiac signs and an indication for the 12 months.
