Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon, pink gold

Possibly overshadowed at SIHH by an impressive set of blue enamel-dialed Master Ultra-Thin models, this new Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon represents the newest generation of this sophisticated dress watch collection. Jaeger-LeCoultre updates the dial and frames it in a new pink gold case, which remains 40mm in diameter.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon, like the also-new Master Ultra Thin Date, retains the Master collection’s round case, strong hour-markers and Dauphine hands. This new model, however, offers slightly larger hour markers than we’ve seen previously. The one-minute tourbillon itself features a new gold bridge across its fairly generous aperture, the latter allowing the wearer to enjoy an enhanced view into the open space and gearing within the regulator.

That regulator, a tourbillon with a titanium carriage, is the excellent Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 978G, also visible from the back of the watch. The back view offers a clear look at the caliber’s new sunray finish. Balancing the pink gold case and eggshell dial is a brown alligator leather strap. Price: $70,500.
