Having been launched in 2007, the Swiss Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre is roughly as new a concept as the iPhone. Over the past decade, JLC has developed the Duomètre into a successful platform for showcasing their creativity and mechanical prowess within the confines of a generally traditional, classically minded, and complicated wristwatch. As the next step in their evolution, JLC has made the small but very noticeable change of fitting a dark grey magnetite dial. Available on three classic Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Watch models in pink gold, the dark dial is a small change with a considerable effect.
Please allow me to fill your important stuff if you are only checking in for the first time since 2007. The world has realized that Black Eyed Peas (always) the worst, a group of really good people die, some news is false, the rest is horrible. Buy TV, watch one of the season’s real detectives, and then throw away the TV. Do not bother with the movies, they do not have anything more lost than in the translation. Okay, you got the rest of the little details, just like installing a few cute watches from the JLC dial in the dark.
From JLC almost anything, it is difficult to think with the attraction. While the white and delicate texture dials we know and love have a certain vintage look to visit the visual literacy of the astronomical clock, the seemingly ancient pocket watch, the transition to matte gray magnetite dial to give a new look on the hinge contrast. The contrast between the hands, the dial layout, and the metal elements in the call are a pretty big blow. Readability is secondary, even if people do not like the gold watch (I), the dark gray pink gold is a subtle and confident looking for a pay attention to the clothing of the watch.
The three newly darkened models are the wondrous Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Spherotourbillon, the swiss classic watches Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Quantième Lunaire, and the cleverJaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Chronographe. We’ve covered all three models in the past, but a refresher never hurts. All three models are 42mm wide and feature hand-wound mechanical movements based on Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Dual Wing Concept. As the Duomètre name would suggest, “Dual Wing” is a movement design that opts for separated gear trains, each with its own mainspring (power reserve). It’s essentially two movements in one watch, one for timekeeping and one for the complication. Using the Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Chronographe as an example, this means that the functionality and mechanical requirements of the chronograph do not affect the accuracy of the main time display.
