JAEGER LECOULTRE – MASTER COMPRESSOR CHRONOGRAPH CERAMIC
This two-tone model sees the brand give the Master Compressor Chronograph Ceramic a stylish new masculine personality.
A competition in London followed by another in Beijing. There’s barely time to unpack before you’re off again to Los Angeles. Athletes are serious travellers too. Jaeger-LeCoultre has designed an exceptional timepiece to join them on their travels; the Master Compressor Chronograph Automatic Ceramic pairs a chronograph with a second time zone. Three wide trapezoid hands in rose gold burst from the black dial bearing white markers. The large luminescent hand tracks the minutes whilst the two shorter hour hands are the same length. The openwork hand is for local time and the other is filled with luminescent material and tracks home time. The time functions are joined by a subtle date display and day/night indicator.
Like the original model, this timepiece has a compression key to ensure the crown stays water-resistant. This system also avoids any accidental alterations so the heart of the chronograph, the 757 Jaeger-LeCoultre calibre, is protected to perfection. The self-winding movement with two barrels provides a comfortable 65-hour power reserve.
This model’s wide 46mm black ceramic case is brightened up by a rose gold crown and pushers. The pairing of materials and colours gives the Master Compressor Chronograph Automatic Ceramic a look that’s both stylish and sporty.
