When the stars traverse the night sky and the hands tick, the unexpected, reliable, elegant and exquisite Jaeger-LeCoultre timepieces will surely be the perfect beginning of a period of genuine emotion.
Master Ultra Thin Date

   Elements of minimalist watchmaking have always been known: the round case is simple and solemn, long and elegant, and the hour is indicated by a central hand. With Jaeger-LeCoultre’s unique craftsmanship, rich creativity and tenacity, each component is expressed in the simplest way. Master Ultra Thin Date reinvents the classics, incorporating these qualities into the new work. The 40mm rose gold polished case with slim lugs is only 7.4mm thick. The feminine eggshell white dial is adorned with appliqued hour markers and a double hour marker at 12 o’clock. The crown prince-like hands in pink gold indicate the hours and minutes, and the central hands indicate the seconds.
   The Master Ultra Thin Date is a timepiece with classic elegance. The window at 6 o’clock indicates the date in a concise and clear way through the dial. Each time the hand crosses the dial twice, the date window displays a new date. The reliability and accuracy of the Jaeger-LeCoultre 899 automatic mechanical movement guarantees the long-term durability of this timepiece. The movement’s balance wheel vibrates up to 28,800 times per hour, and the 22K gold oscillating weight swings with the forearm to wind the movement. The sapphire crystal case back reveals a warm golden light. The Master Ultra Thin Date watch with crocodile strap and rose gold pin buckle combines the fate of the timepiece with timeless charm.
Rendez-Vous Date

   Extremely classic and full of modernity, the slim Rendez-Vous Date date display watch contains a beating heart. The rose gold case has an unprecedented diameter of 27.5 millimeters and is equipped with a Jaeger-LeCoultre 966 mechanical movement, which is one of the smallest mechanical movements in the world. This movement follows the technical accomplishments of the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory in the field of micromechanics, echoing the 101 movement and the Duoplan movement, which have become iconic masterpieces in the history of watchmaking. The watch is equipped with a date display at 6 o’clock and the movement is very precise. Its rhythm can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. Three blue hands move past the dial decorated with delicate guilloche patterns, reminiscent of delicate silk. In the exquisite decoration, it is also equipped with digital time scales that have been a classic since the 1930s, and the diamond-set bezel highlights the unique charm. Rendez-Vous Date date display watch with beige leather strap or rose gold bracelet, timeless and elegant, for the brand’s classic traditional high-end watchmaking process, endowed with irreplaceable elegance.

Montblanc Mysterious Time Tourbillon Watch

The mysterious time tourbillon watch that came out in 2009. The hand-engraved pure gold dial, the oversized tourbillon in the upper half and the mysterious timetable dial in the lower half are highlighted. The design and manual polishing of the tourbillon splint create a highly ornamental smooth curve. The mysterious dial uses two The sapphire crystal glass sheet sandwiches the hour and minute hands in the middle, and the glass sheet is rotated by the transmission gear. The case and movement are ingeniously designed into a smile shape, which also reduces the overall weight of the watch
    In general, when we introduce a watchmaking company with a long history, we always follow the order of time, starting from the day of its rise, and counting its achievements. However, we also know in our hearts that the development of anything cannot be smooth. As Demetiro Cabiddu, technical director of the Minerva Institute for Advanced Watchmaking Technology, who is also a former shareholder of Minerva, said-he has experienced the best, the worst, the heyday and the worst. Before he joined Minerva, the established watchmaking company, founded in 1858 and without interruption in its career, had witnessed the rise and fall of generations.
    The location of Minerva is in the heart of the Swiss clock and watch, the town of Villeret in the Jura Valley. Its predecessor was a family watchmaking company called H. & C.Robert. At that time, Swiss timepieces were in a rising period. Like most watch makers at the time, H. & C. Robert outsourced the production of movements, cases, dials and other parts. He was only responsible for Calibration, sanding and assembly of pocket watches. Although H. & C. Robert also won several awards at this stage, it is too insignificant compared to the future achievements of Minerva.
    In 1887, the company registered the Minerva brand, and gradually transitioned from the original assembly plant to a professional watchmaking company with independent movement research and development capabilities and mastering all watchmaking processes. In 1902, Minerva produced its own movement. The successively introduced chronograph movements with column-wheel structure stand out with superior quality, imaginative layout, and exquisite decoration and polishing, and are recognized as the best in its class. Another highlight of the Minerva movement is its excellent recognition-the wonderful scissors-shaped chronograph splint and the lever with an arrow at the end have been used for 100 years. It is the product of a purely hand-made watch, and it now appears on the back of the Montblanc Villeret 1858 series.
    In 1909, as one of the first watch movements in the world, Minerva witnessed the advent of the watch era at the beginning of the last century. At this time, Montblanc, which started as a writing instrument, has just begun to show its ambitions-both companies have found their own coordinates in their respective fields, but who can think that one day, the trajectories of the two will be staggered Too!
    In 1929, the company officially changed its name to MINERVA SA. In 1935, Minerva changed hands, and two new owners, Charles Haussener and Jacques Pelot, respectively served as heads of movement production and head of R & D. While the Swiss watchmaking industry is gradually moving towards an industrialized production model, Minerva strives to maintain the original scale and production conditions, give full play to the technical advantages of watchmakers, and use low-volume, high-quality strategies in The movement market has firmly secured its place, while also defending the Swiss watch tradition.
    From the 1950s to the beginning of the century, Minerva experienced the ‘best’ and ‘worst’ period of Swiss clocks. However, with the renaissance of the watch industry, the market space of Minerva has been further compressed. Originally, the business strategy of good wine is not afraid of the alleys. In this very commercial era, it seems that some are not convinced. It can’t be resolved by the advantages of technology and craftsmanship. Minerva has also tried to stop supplying external movements, and made every effort to build its own watch brand, but the plan eventually ran aground. In 2006, Minerva was selected by the Richemont Group and was included in its responsibility to develop top-quality movements. After that, there was this episode of Minerva and Montblanc.
