SIHH 2014: Jaeger-LeCoultre – Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire Grand Feu Enamel Ref. 60435E1
At the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2014 Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced another variant of the Duomètre a Quantième Lunaire with a 40.5 mm case in white gold and a sparkly dial created in Grand Feu polish, a challenging technique which includes terminating the gold dial circle fastidiously covered with progressive layers of lacquer at high temperatures for the most part going from 800 to 900 degrees Celsius.
Organized on the exquisite and effectively discernible dial, the hours, minutes, seconds and moon-stage shows seem to make the Duomètre a Quantième Lunaire Grand Feu lacquer (ref. 60435E1) a exemplary watch model. In any case, the case houses the profoundly imaginative Caliber 381, a development that, on account of the restrictive Dual-Wing idea of the Duomètre line, offers extraordinary chronometric exactness in any event, running a particularly intricate complication as a schedule.
In this development there are two free wellsprings of energy, each with 50 hours of force hold. The main fuel source is directed by the escapement and the equilibrium and is committed to the estimation of the progression of time. The second wellspring of energy bolsters the presentation of the capacities: hours, minutes, seconds, schedule and moon stage. Their synchronization is guaranteed by the bouncing seconds hand mechanism. Each wellspring of energy has 50 hours of force hold.
To comment the degree of accuracy of this watch, the bouncing seconds hand moves in 6th of a subsequent augmentations.
The cost, without charges, of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre a Quantième Lunaire Grand Feu veneer is 42,000 Euro.
