THE EXHIBITION

ART INSTALLATION

SOUND SCULTURE BY THE ARTIST ZIMOUN

Swiss contemporary artist, Zimoun, employs simple raw materials and repurposed industrial components, including watch parts – and, in doing so, redefines traditional ideas of sculpture, movement and sound, drawing the audience into an almost transcendent world of sensory experience.

Zimoun’s new installation creates a unique aural signature for Jaeger-LeCoultre, evoking the sounds of nature and of the Manufacture, as well as capturing the rippling of light on the surface of the lake seen from the watchmaking ateliers.

COMPLICATION

WESTMINSTER CHIME MINUTE REPEATER

The Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpétuel represents the epitome of horological creativity and ingenuity by bringing together a panoply of chiming innovations and improvements that were first debuted by Jaeger-LeCoultre. Featuring the fifth multi-axis tourbillon with a size reduction in the redesigned tourbillon component to create a more wearable watch and a Westminster carillon minute repeater that replicates the chime of the famed Big Ben clock tower in London, with a silence-reduction mechanism to optimise melody cadence.

CELESTIAL MINUTE REPEATER

The Master Grande Tradition Calibre 945 harnesses more than a century and a half of accumulated expertise. This masterpiece of mechanical engineering incorporates two of the most romantic yet technically challenging complications in horology – a minute repeater and a celestial vault. The complex mechanism is further elevated by an orbital flying tourbillon.
