Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 Mechanical Movement's 80th Anniversary
The history of the modern Calibre 101 mechanical movement dates back to 1929, the year when the first movement of the kind was created.

Currently, this movement has the same name. Improved over the years, it includes up-to-date, extremely adorned interpretations.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 101 has been the smallest mechanical movement in the world since it was unveiled, meaning for 80 years.

The annual output of these tiny movements is limited to 25 pieces only. The dimensions of the movement in question are 14 mm X 4.8 mm X 3.4mm: length, width and thickness respectively.

The movement is composed of 98 parts meant to make up its current iteration. The latest versions of the movement are able to incorporate even more parts, while the original 1929 Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 movement comprised 78 parts only. Its ultra low weight is about a gram.

Thin and long in its exclusive shape, this movement is used in a series of different high-jewelry timekeeping companions for women. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 101 also features extremely small blued steel screws, that seem large against its overall background.

Welcome New Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar Watch
Jaeger-LeCoultre unveils its new Master Calendar watch. The novelty, the same as every model belonging to the Master Calender collection, is characterized by useful functions and understated elegance.

The story of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar model started in 1945 when the brand introduced a calendar watch standing out by its pure lines. The timepiece inspired all the contemporary Master Calendar models.

The latest Master Calendar watch, with a resized 39 mm-in-diameter case, demonstrates clear-cut lines, harmoniously positioned indications, traditional numerals, and applied hour-markers. You will notice the traditional Jaeger-LeCoultre signature at 12 o’clock, and the “AUTOMATIC” inscription found at 6 o’clock.

The slightly smaller case has been created to perfectly adapt to the curve of any wrist. The harmoniously proportioned case also boasts a remarkable thickness - 10.6 mm. This is a true horological feat for a case that accommodates an automatic movement with the complete calendar functionality.

Having reduced the diameter and thickness of the case, the engineers handed the watch over to the designers who slimmed down its lugs and bezel to strengthen the aesthetic elegance of the timepiece.

The sunburst silver-toned dial pleases the eye by its supreme readability. The hours and minutes are shown by dauphine hands in the center. The day of the week and the month are presented via two 12 o’clock apertures, while the small seconds are featured around the rim of the 6 o’clock sub-dial devoted to the moon phase function. Respecting the tradition, the moon is visible between two clouds, ascending into the star-studded sky. The date is indicated by a central long hand with a crescent moon at its tip.

Ticking inside the case of the Master Calendar watch is a mechanical automatic movement - Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 866. Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the 305part, 32-jewel movement provides 43 hours of power reserve. The mechanism was crafted, assembled and decorated by hand. You can admire its fine traditional finishing with the sapphire crystal case-back.

The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar watch is available in two versions - in pink gold or in stainless steel l. The pink gold variation is coupled with an alligator leather strap fitted with a matching pin buckle, while the stainless steel model is also teamed with an alligator strap equipped with a folding clasp.

The timepiece is 50-meter water-resistant.
