Jaeger LeCoultre Watchmaking Wk SIN Part Two: Exhibits

Part Two: Exhibits

atmos marqueterie featuring art by gustav klimt...
i really like this...

Photobucket

combination of the different types of art... very impressive indeed
Photobucket

this is cool too... marc newson designed and baccarat crystal all around
Photobucket

atmos' r just about the best clocks out there for folks like
us wif watches on the brain

Photobucket

the gyro 1... so impressive but overshadowed by the gyro 2
Photobucket

JLCs on display... these show 2nd timezones or world times
Photobucket

chronographs galore
Photobucket

gorgeous master 8 days perpetual... but a lil tough to read perhaps
in this openworked piece? but it is beautiful to look at so maybe that was the
intention? take your time to admire the watch while getting the date info
Photobucket

blingy but nice for ladies of course :)
Photobucket

the master tourbillons... excellent stuff
Photobucket

the triptyque with 3 faces on a reverso...
Photobucket

master minute repeater... very nice
Photobucket

the extreme lab with the lubrication free movement. i love that so much and hope that they will succeed in mass producing this at a more affordable price so that lubrication free movements will be standard in mechanical timepieces in the future... its a real revolution. i don't like the design on the extreme lab though... but it does house the future, hopefully
Photobucket

the duometre... many guys raving about it but i don't like it.
to each their own yuh :) the pock marked pitted dial doesnt make sense to me...
Photobucket

nonetheless it is pretty impressive...
Photobucket

nice enamel dial reverso
Photobucket

putting the reverso caseback to good use... simply lovely
Photobucket

engraving on reverso cases are interesting ways to personalise them too
Photobucket

A few lovely pocket watches on display...
amazing art on some of the cases

Photobucket

Photobucket

this is something else, a grand complication on the left and a
repeater on the right (if memory serves correct)

Photobucket

its mind boggling how they were able to make these back in the 1800s... without cnc machines, computers etc etc etc
Photobucket

and the fabled millionometer to measure components to the
nearest thousandths of a millimetre or a micron

I love your blog. I've been a huge fan of the Jaeger Le Coultre Master Compressor Extreme World in Platinum....however, I've never seen a 'real' photo of one, only the online versions...

I don't suppose anyone would be so kind as to post a few pictures of the platinum case and dial?

Deciding between one of these and the platinum Big Pilot. Suggestions?
