Jaeger-LeCoultre is always taking the Haute Horlogerie to new heights with their timepieces.
Blending art and intricate complications the Swiss brand releases the Duomètre Unique Travel Time, a watch made for travellers.
This model with its finely chiselled dial embodies the elegance of an exquisitely hand-crafted skill. Travelling with such a creation on the wrist epitomises an authentic art of living.
The dial is unique in terms of its appearance that is at once rough and delicate, as well as because the work of the artisan is entirely free, guided only by personal talent and never exactly identical.
On the Duomètre Unique Travel Time, the combination of the reference and destination time zones is adjustable to the nearest minute. Thanks to the Unique Travel Time system, the traveller can set the time-zone display to all continents and countries, whatever the time difference.
Despite the complexity of the mechanism, Jaeger-LeCoultre wished to emphasise the pleasant, user-friendly nature of the watch so as to release it from any handling difficulties.
In addition to the case, the movement is also the object of refined finishes, including hand-bevelled german silver bridges and the exclusive “côtes soleillées” developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre. This concern for both outer and inner decoration is inspired by the grand tradition of pocket-watches by the Grande Maison and confirms the innate kinship of the Duomètre Unique Travel Time with the spirit of Haute Horlogerie.
Finally, the back of the watch springs an attractive surprise, since it reveals the engraved names of the cities corresponding to the 24 time zones. An authentic invitation to travel the world.
The manufacture really outdid itself with the timepiece. It is the perfect watch for travellers changing time zones on a regular basis as well as watchmaking aficionados.
