This Duomètreà Quantième Lunaire bi-phase moon phase calendar watch is an excellent showcase of the latest research results of the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch laboratory: this timepiece achieves accuracy The new pinnacle, its blinking seconds hand beats every 1/6 seconds, and the calendar and moon phases are displayed on a separate dial.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire 40.5 biplane moon phase calendar watch will be released at the 2012 SIHH watch exhibition
The most outstanding feature of this watch is the design concept of the Dual-Wing movement, which has two independent sources of power: one is designed for precise travel, controlled by the escapement and balance wheel; The other powers the hours, minutes and seconds, as well as the calendar and bi-hemisphere moon phases. The instantaneous jumping second hand mechanism driven by the escapement mechanism realizes synchronous operation of the two power sources.
Through in-depth research and reconsideration of the basic principles of watchmaking theory, Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmaking experts successfully created a calendar watch with the ‘Dual-Wing’ bi-wing movement-the outstanding characteristics of this principle ensure accurate timekeeping. In the past, Only a watch without any complications can have this privilege.
Only 178 years of professional experience will allow Jaeger-LeCoultre to start a new chapter in the history of fine watchmaking …
Jaeger-LeCoultre is looking forward to publishing more watches at SIHH 2012 (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie) in Geneva, Switzerland, from January 16th to 20th.
