Jaeger-LeCoultre has a long tradition of making ultra-thin watches, dating back to 1907. The large workshop chooses to combine the extraordinary handicrafts such as hollowwork, engraving, enamel and jewelry setting with ultra-thin watchmaking technology, which is very creative. The watch is equipped with the extremely reliable Jaeger-LeCoultre 849ASQ mechanical movement. The detailed and tightly meshed gear set is like being in a labyrinth of twists and turns. Gazes along the hand-engraved watch bridge all the way to a hidden corner that is almost out of sight. Even with such unremarkable details, the craftsmen are decorated with chamfers, looming a unique brilliance. Then, his gaze rested on the millimeter-sized decoration made by artisans with precision and dexterity. This subtle light and shadow game can only be achieved with the exquisite craftsmanship of fine watchmaking.

Jaeger-LeCoultre specially designed the hour and minute display for this movement. The Great Workshop regards balance, harmony and clarity as easy to read. These two important elements can be found in every new work. The Master Ultra Thin Squelette skeleton watch is equipped with a dial divided into 12 zones by the hour markers, adhering to the great watchmaking tradition, while bringing a clear time reading experience. At the same time, the minute scale surrounding the movement is both functional and aesthetic, like a rare art treasure in the world. Both the front and the back of the watch are decorated with rare craftsmanship (Métiers Rares®) and are presented in four distinct ways. Each Master Ultra Thin Squelette skeleton watch is a perfect blend of design, watchmaking craftsmanship and extraordinary craftsmanship in different proportions.

Master Ultra Thin Squelette skeleton watch and enamel craftsmanship
Enamel craftsmanship is a veritable art. The enamel is roasted in a fire and presents a unique sense of depth. Applying enamel technology to Master Ultra Thin Squelette skeleton watch Beauty is undoubtedly an immortal achievement. The white or rose gold used to make the case is first carved with a guilloche pattern, which echoes the overall design of the watch. Subsequently, the master craftsman filled the case with enamel paint and baked it repeatedly in the furnace until the desired hue appeared. The strong dark blue tone complements the white gold, while the bright light brown echoes the rose gold case. The back of the Master Ultra Thin Squelette skeleton watch is also decorated with enamel to reproduce the sequence design of the time zone display, forming a mirror image with the dial, full of dynamics. These two new products are limited to 100 pieces each, which reflects the style of contemporary and bold and confident.

Choosing a men’s watch decorated with mother-of-pearl and diamonds is a personal aesthetic choice. Put the watch in your hand and play, you can taste this perfect decoration. The Master Ultra Thin Squelette cutout watch with diamonds clearly considers brilliance as the main line of design. A series of different watch parts are engraved and decorated in different ways, sparkling with subtle contrast between light and dark. The mother-of-pearl exudes a soft iridescent luster. Each time zone is decorated with a piece of hand-engraved natural mother-of-pearl, with a delicate texture. This technique gives the dial a sense of dynamic rhythm. The bezel set with brilliant-cut diamonds makes this design more perfect and sophisticated.
