Jaeger-LeCoultre first unveiled the Master Control collection in 1992. A range that spoke of understated elegance, the timepieces were defined by their technical performance and refined, harmonious lines.

 

This year, to celebrate the Master Control collection's 25th anniversary, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents three new pieces to the line: the Master Control Date, Master Chronograph, and Master Geographic. Drawing on the classicism of the collection, the three timepieces are driven by automatic movements, and feature a vintage charm with touches of navy blue. All three are available in the alligator leather strap (in a matching navy blue) or stainless steel bracelet options.

 

Master Control Date

Jaeger-LeCoultre introduces three new classics to the Master Control collection
For the elegant minimalist, the face of the Master Control Date is kept clean and simple, marked by numerals at 6, 9 and 12, with the date display at 3. Turn it on its other side and the sapphire crystal case-back reveals the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 899/1 with its 22-carat gold oscillating weight—a sight to admire.

Flaunting a sportier aesthetic, the Master Chronograph is armed with a 40-mm diameter case that houses the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 751 automatic mechanical movement. The running colour theme of navy is featured in the stainless steel hands and the tachometer that runs around the outer perimeter.

 

Master Geographic

The emblematic model of the Master Control collection, the Master Geographic is ideal for the sophisticated jet-setter. Along with a second time zone display, the aperture in the lower section of the dial displays the names of 24 cities around the world, representing all the time zones.
