Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Duomètre Sphérotourbillon received an award in the “Best Horological Value” category at the 6th annual SIAR (Salón Internacional Alta Relojería) fine watch fair in Mexico City.
Jaeger-LeCoultre packed up the best of its historical watches for exhibit at the SIAR fine watch fair in Mexico City. SIAR welcomed over 2,600 visitors and approximately 400 journalists for its 6th year of fine watch exhibition. Jaeger-LeCoultre displayed some of its most classical time honored timepieces of which included its original 1931 Reverso, the Reverso Gyrotourbillon, Reverso à Triptyque, Grande Tradition Grande Complications, Memovox, Futurmatic models, pocket watches and of course its new Duomètre Sphérotourbillon.
The Duomètre Sphérotourbillon timepiece is based on Jaeger-LeCoultre’s unique revolutionary Dual-Wing concept line. Jaeger-LeCoultre premiered Duomètre à Chronographe in 2007, a spectacular timepiece equipped with two gear trains – one of which is dedicated to the hours and minutes function and the other to the chronograph, with functionality of measuring down to a 1/6th of a second. This phenomenal timepiece gave way to the introduction of the Duomètre Dual-Wing line, designed by Master Watchmaker Christian Laurent, which garnered much attention for its two distinct mechanisms (in effect two brains) housed under one case – notable for its enhanced watch accuracy.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Sphérotourbillon has evolved the revolutionary Duomètre Dual-Wing line into the 21st century. Duomètre Sphérotourbillon is the first watch to possess a multi-axis tourbillon to provide accuracy that presents time with distinct precision in part to a small seconds hand equipped with a flying set return. This flying set return allows the watch to be adjusted to a precise instance of time.
Duomètre Sphérotourbillon houses two axes which compensates for the effects of earth’s gravity regardless of the positions in which the watch may be held; and is also equipped with cylindrical spiral. Distinct characteristics of the Duomètre Sphérotourbillon include its independent seconds displayed at 6 o’clock on the watch dial and its capability to be reset to zero by pressing a push-piece at any time without interrupting the tourbillon.
Duomètre Sphérotourbillon’s visual open case-back reveals JLC’s new 382 Calibre movement, its untreated German silver bridges and plate which bears JLC’s exclusive “c?tes soleillées” decoration. The crown also bears Jaeger-LeCoultre signature logo.
The “Best Horological Value” awarded to Duomètre Sphérotourbillon adds to its aesthetic appeal and speaks volumes of its grand complication and technical performance, which is exemplary of JLC’s long standing watchmaking tradition. Congratulations Jaeger-LeCoultre for your amazing Duomètre Sphérotourbillon timepiece achievement and your SIAR reward.
