Overview

A reference for time

The Master Control collection is defined by true technical excellence and its celebrated round design giving it a sense of true contemporary elegance. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s spirit of innovation drives continual calibre enhancements across the Master Collection range but its soul remains effortlessly sophisticated. 

Design

A pure expression of mechanical complexity

Designed for the urban sophisticate, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s designers have harnessed and modernised the Maison’s classical design codes to create a contemporary aesthetics which highlights the collection’s complications. 

A timeless elegance

The modern look of The Master Control is inspired by Jaeger-LeCoultre’s classic watchmaking approach and is designed to elevate each model’s complications while reinterpreting established design ideas. Elongated triangular indexes add a touch of flair while a sun brushed dial delivers the purest possible expression of time. Subtle touches of colour add a sense of character and energy to each piece.

Unmistakably Jaeger-LeCoultre

Each watch in the collection is eye-catching in its relaxed, refined modern elegance. Polished bezels, subtly curved lugs and a polish case give The Master Control its unique character. A 40mm case provides a reassuringly solid, comfortable feel on the wrist. And the sapphire case back offers a glimpse into the exceptional high performance calibres that provide such outstanding finishes.

With classic, pure lines that elevate the beauty of simplicity, the Master Control represents the true essence of a modern, luxury timepiece.
