The Grande Maison in Le Sentier is turning up the volume with this timepiece equipped with an ingenious system which clearly and qualitatively relays all the notes of its chimes.
With over 200 chiming watch calibers in its range, Jaeger-LeCoultre excels in the art of the minute repeater complication. With this wealth of knowledge, the brand is not resting on its laurels and is constantly innovating with great success. The new Master Grande Tradition Répétition Minutes Perpétuelle is a superb example. For this edition, a tone system produces the closest representation yet of the top notes and volume of old pocket watches. The acoustic quality is optimized thanks to an enlarged area in which the melodies can flourish. The thickness of the watch is around 13.72 mm.
Two editions are available, each composed of 30 pieces. The first has a translucent dial in guilloched blue enamel. While the second has a silver grained finish.
