At the SIHH 2012, the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre presented three new timepieces in its Master Control line, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Master Control, Master Ultra Thin Réserve de Marche and Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon.
Twenty years after its presentation and building on unflagging success, the Master Control reasserts its minimalist credo in a refined new interpretation. It houses Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 899, which incorporates the latest developments to emerge from the company laboratories in the fields of resistance and robustness.
The Ultra Thin models enrich the legendary reliability and minimalist aesthetic of the Master line with a new feat: the extreme slenderness of its technical execution. In its 39 mm-diameter case, the Master Ultra Thin Réserve de Marche expresses a horological philosophy based on reducing functions and their representation to absolute essentials.
