Jaeger-LeCoultre once again proves to be the expert of the exceptional with the three Masterpieces: the Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie, the Hybris Mechanica à Gyrotourbillon and the Hybris Mechanica à Triptyque. The Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie epitomises the realization of the most complex and demanding form of horology: the striking of the time just as the Tower of Big Ben in Great Britain dictates, every hour and quarter – fully automatic and miniaturised to the size of a wristwatch. Discover this outstanding feature and its total 27 complications. Each watch is an icon of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s craftsmanship, celebrating its horological history and simultaneously symbolising its acceptance of the challenge to reinvent the most complicated achievements of haute horlogerie. The Hybris Mechanica 55 set will be delivered in an exclusive safe finished with the finest details imaginable and meeting the latest security standards.
