Le Sentier-based Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced a new Master Control Chronograph today, available for the first time with a quick-release stainless steel bracelet.
The 2022 Master Control Chronograph Calendar comes in a 40 mm x 12.05 mm stainless steel case, with a classic silver sunburst dial punctuated by Dauphine-shaped hour and minute hands that indicate the time, and blued hands that display the small seconds (at 9 o’clock), chronograph seconds (center), and chronograph minutes (at 3 o’clock).
This is a calendar watch, so there are day and month indications (at 12 o’clock), along with a moon phase disc and the date indicated by a steel baton-shaped hand (both at 6 o’clock).
Driving the functions Jaeger-LeCoultre automatic in-house caliber 759 which is has a 65-hour power reserve and is decorated with Geneva stripes, blued screws, and a rose gold skeletonized rotor — all visible through an open sapphire caseback.
The 2022 Master Control Chronograph Calendar (Ref. Q413812J) is 50 meters water-resistant and comes with both a stainless steel integrated bracelet and a light brown Novonappa® calf leather strap — which can be swapped with no tools thanks to a built-in quick-release system. Retail is $17,300.
