The Hybris Mechanica à Triptyque is the most complicated watch ever created in the famous swivel-case of the Reverso, as well as being the first one to show the information on three separate displays including the base of the case.
Altogether 19 complications are placed within the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 175: civil time, sidereal time, zodiacal calendar, a sky chart and an equation of time with sunrise- and sunset-times – adjustable by the watchmakers to any place in the world.
The carrier of the case also features a perpetual calendar with retrograde date and moon phase, connected to the movement with a patented transmission system that activates the calendar precisely at midnight. This information is placed on a newly designed dial with yellow gold plated inlays.
The manually-wound movement also features for the very first time a tourbillon equipped with the new ellipse isometer escapement outfitted with a specially developed platinum-iridium balance. This exceptional timepiece alone represents the culmination of over six years of research and development conducted within the manufacture.
