    I think its such an impressive watchmaking that they show with this new watch. Simply mindblowing.
    I was hoping to see also something more affordable though.
    I am not sure, but i think beside this watch there were no new releases this year?

    Edit: ok at the end of the video she mentiones that they have more inovations and surpises that they plan for this year.

    This is a “drop the microphone” statement by JLC. They have always been top tier, but never in the big three pantheon. ( made parts for all of them though) Always dissed for making “affordable” watches in SS. No, we can’t afford this thing but it’s dammed amazing.

    That’s a serious watch made by a serious company. They always impress the hell out of me at JLC. I really need to buy one of their more affordable models one day.

    Golden ratio = 1 gold ingot from Fort Knox to 1 complete service by JLC.

    Everyone needs a Reverso IMO. Lots of great places to start in the Master Line as well. Great bang for the buck.

    There was a JLC Master Tourbillon available locally a couple years back for about 19k usd, was so tempted to figure out what I could sell to fund that purchase.

    I'm planning to buy a watch later this year and it's pretty much down to a Globemaster or Reverso at this point.

    I am actually waiting to finish two more adds in my collection :

    A Rolex Datejust 1601 and a Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso Duoface Night and Day with GMT complication.

    The more I see the Reverso and the more I want it, it's so unique and the best rectangular watch for me i prefer it than the Monaco or Tank in this category for its versatility.

    Jaeger LeCoutre deserves so much more attention, they do incredible works and pushes lines beyond. They deserve a place in the holy trinity more than an AP stuck up with the Royal Oak since so many years.

    I love my Omegas, but there’s no question about which of my watches is haute horlogerie. Who else but JLC would incorporate a pink gold rotor with the JL symbol into an automatic movement? The very best of art and engineering working together.

    Anabsolute stunner but, Only 10 pieces, so even if I dropped lottery there’s not much chance of owning one.
