Jaeger-LeCoultre and Mr. Porter announce a 100-piece limited edition timepiece made for the upcoming Kingsman film.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn, The King’s Man (2020) is a prequel to the Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) and Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017). There will also be an additional Kingsman film following the third installment, as well as a spinoff called Statesman, and an 8-hour limited television series.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Kingsman Knife watch will be offered exclusively on Mr. Porter, as a key part of The King’s Man “costume to collection” from July 20th to September 6th. After that date, the watch will also be available directly from Jaeger-LeCoultre online and in selected boutiques.
The 18K pink gold watch case is 40 mm in diameter and most incredibly thin at 4.25 mm. To achieve this level of thinness, Jaeger-LeCoultre employed manually wound caliber 849 — which is 1.85 mm thick — from their archives.
Visually, the case gains its looks from a 1907 Couteau (“couteau” is French for knife) pocket watch, which is apt considering that the latest movie in the Kingsman series goes back 100 years to the origin of the Kingsman agency (fictional).
The caseback of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Kingsman Knife watch has been engraved with the Kingsman logo, “One of 100,” and is presented in a specially designed Kingsman sleeve box. The retail price is $29,800.
