Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2

May 24, 2010
The spectacular Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 watch from the acclaimed watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre was unveiled at SIHH 2010, in January.

The ultra-complicated watch is instantly identifiable due to its high-tech sandwich structured case with carrier-chassis and movement container. It is crafted from advanced titanium alloy, the brands exclusivity called TiVan15, and incorporates 143 elements. The watch proudly reveals a black zirconium ceramic bezel, which holds securely a sapphire crystal. Its backside is also equipped with a sapphire crystal.

The imposing case is outfitted with a zirconium-ceramic crown, which does not need to be pulled out when selecting the functions. It is kept company by push-buttons endowed with L-shaped security arms and rubber cover.

Most accurate timekeeping is ensured by the Calibre 781 movement. The rose gold interpretation accommodates Calibre 780. The hallmark of the Caliber 781 is its advanced silicon escapement.

Distinguished by its anti-magnetic properties, this high-tech element runs with lower friction and does not require regular oil lubrication. Moreover, this escapement is lighter, which ensures higher speed and precision. The power reserve offered by the movement constitutes 60 hours.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 watch shows off a skeletonized dial, which provides a stunning vision of the movement. It is fitted with luminescent indexes and skeleton hands. The display also features a patented jumping digital minutes counter located at 12 oclock. Composed of two discs, it indicates chronograph minutes. Chronograph hours are presented in the sub-dial at 9 oclock.

Pointing to chronograph seconds is a red central hand. The top of the dial exposes a radial power reserve indicator. It turns from white to red as the power reserve decreases.

The final note of harmony is added by a double alligator leather strap. It is finished with a new adjustable double pin buckle fixed in two positions. The Jaeger-LeCoultre watch is endowed with a new integrated system, which enables the user to change the bracelet easily.
