For the Only Watch 2019 charity auction, Jaeger-LeCoultre is presenting the Master Ultra-Thin Perpetual Enamel Chestnut.
The Only Watch event will kick off in Monaco from September 25 to 28 and come to a close in Geneva from November 7 to 9, where the charity auction will take place. The proceeds go towards medical research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy and Association monégasque contre les myopathies.
This year, Jaeger-LeCoultre will be offering a unique piece to be included in the auction: the Master Ultra- Thin Perpetual Enamel Chestnut. Made from white gold, the piece features a hand-guillochéd enamel dial in a striking chestnut color.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Perpetual Enamel Chestnut for Only Watch 2019
The Master Ultra-Thin collection highlights the talents of the Manufacture’s artisans who work together in the Rare Handcrafts™ (Métiers Rares®) workshop. The Master Ultra-Thin Perpetual Enamel Chestnut has four beautifully proportioned counters, including a new display of the perpetual calendar at 12 o’clock.
At 6 o’clock there is a subtle moon phase that simultaneously indicates the moon’s waxing and waning phases in both hemispheres. The dial is crafted from a beautiful chestnut brown translucent enamel. The date counter is featured at 9 o’clock, with the days of the week at 3 o’clock.
The full splendor of the sunburst guilloché radiates on the dial, providing the Master Ultra-Thin Perpetual Enamel Chestnut with an impression of both relief and depth. The guillochage work was carried out by hand on both the dial and the counters by Jaeger-LeCoultre’s artisans, who work with age-old machines and tools in the purest watchmaking tradition.
