Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Pink Gold by Jaeger-LeCoultre
The "Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Pink Gold" (ref. 500242a) is a watch from Jaeger-LeCoultre's "Master Grande Tradition" range of watches. It features a dial in silver velvet and a pink gold case. This watch is designed for men. The round case has a diameter of 42mm and is waterproof up to approximately 50 meters water depth (5 bar). The transparent case back makes it possible to watch the movement.
The automatically winding mechanical movement is providing a power reserve of 48 hours and displays hours, minutes and seconds (off-centered). The perpetual calendar indicates day of the week, date, month, year and moon phase. As regulating organ, the caliber relies on a tourbillon which causes the balance wheel and the escapement to rotate slowly. In the days of pocket watches, the tourbillon increased the accuracy of the watch by preventing the minute components from working in the same orientation for a prolonged period of time. Today, the complication mostly serves an aethetic and emotional purpose and is a testament of the manufacturer's watchmaking abilities.
The case is worn with a brown alligator leather strap with a pink gold folding clasp. Jaeger-LeCoultre asks its official retailers to sell the watch at the recommended retail price of 122'000 CHF. Use the "Contact Shop" button to reach out to an official shop of your choice for their offer."
