Jaeger-LeCoultre combines innovation with elegance

First published: 04-04-2011

Known around the world for its technically brilliant timepieces, leading watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre has launched a new hi-tech model that refuses to compromise on elegance.

The Chronograph Duometre is an undeniably innovative creation, but its complex mechanics have not been engineered to the detriment of sophistication or discretion, the Watch Observer noted.

In fact, the website's editor awarded the Jaeger-LeCoultre Chronograph Duometre watch an impressive score of 79 out of 100, citing its "overall manufacturing quality" as a key factor in its success.

"The classic Jaeger-LeCoultre codes and the feeling of high-quality craftsmanship are all present. Then upon closer inspection, you discover that you are in fact dealing with a watch that is anything but ordinary," the critic said.

With a 44mm case made from pink gold and a suave alligator strap, this is one undeniably-cool timepiece that should form part of any discerning watch fan's collection.

Last month, Jaeger-LeCoultre debuted the Master Grande Tradition a Tourbillion, which embodies the "triumph of precision" associated with the watchmaker's designs, according to Watch Luxus.
