Jaeger-LeCoultre's strength on movement R&D is undeniable. The time one of the most extremely few modern wristwatch brands that never ever used ETA movement. Additionally it is one on the famous brands that provide in-house movements to Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Piguet, Panerai and other big designer manufacturers. Therefore, I have reason to believe that any movement is practical for Jaeger-LeCoultre.
However, can be of Duometre a Chronographe still greatly surprised me. Beyond any possible dounbt, Jaeger-LeCoultre is indeed wonderful and great. Besides the 1/6 second display, the new Jaeger-Lecoultre is sufficient take you minutes to admire. The dial has 9 hands, three subdials and one aperture. The central golden hand is local second user while the central blue hand works as a chronograph seconds hand. The subdial at 9 o'clock displays local hour and minute and the subdial at 3 o'clock is the chronograph dial: the the outer scale is to time 60 minute while the inner ring is to time 12 hours. The aperture towards the end is also used to time. The operation rule is as follows: Bash central blue hand turns a circle, the chronograph minutes hand jumps one measure and finish one-minute right time to. When 10-minute timing is finished, the aperture runs one numeral. And when the subdial completes 60-minute, the chronograph hours hand jumps one evaluation. And the like, they together can undergo the timing of 12 hours time.
At 6 o'clock, it is undoubtedly a third subdial,the essence of Duometre a Chronographe, which is 1/6 second 'Lighting Chronograph' subdial. At its left side, a gold small hand shows time-travel power reserve; At its right side, a blue hand hand displays chronograph power reserve.
Beneath this complex dial, there beats the new Cal. 380 manual wound chronograph motion. The movement has two independent barrels to separate the barrel power of time-travel and chronograph, which prevents time-travel from being influenced when the chronograph function is was founded. What is more, both barrels are able to independently provide 50 hours power purchase.The movement is so complex that less costly . 390 bits of spare tasks. The chronograph part is equipped with six-teeth star wheel. It passes escapement frequency to star wheel through a 30-teeth gear which located above escapement wheel. Ad star wheel turns one circle every minute, the 30-teeth gear pass escapement frequency once in every second to star proceed. By this way, the display of 1/6 lighting chronograph is achieved.
This time, even Jaeger-LeCoultre itself feels that the R&D of Cal.380 is often something turn out to be proud involved with. The new Duometre a Chronographe, which is available in yellow gold, rose gold and PT 950, marks the wording of Calorie.380 at the bottom of the dial. Of course, every piece asks over 300,000RMB. This price, actually, is quite reasonable. Consider what a striking movement the rii!
