Hong Kong Tatler - - Style | Watches -

THIS YEAR, JAEGER-LECOUL­TRE SHARES ITS FAS­CI­NA­TION WITH AS­TRON­OMY WITH A SE­RIES OF WATCHES THAT FEA­TURE CAL­EN­DAR COM­PLI­CA­TIONS. THE DUOMÈTRE SPHÉRO­TOUR­BIL­LON MOON ADDS A MOON PHASE TO THE MAI­SON’S MOST REV­O­LU­TION­ARY, MULTI-AXIS TOUR­BIL­LON. AND MIND YOU, IT’S NOT YOUR CUS­TOM­ARY MOON PHASE EI­THER. WHILE A TRA­DI­TIONAL MOON PHASE USU­ALLY HAS A ONE-DAY DIS­CREP­ANCY EV­ERY TWO-ANDA-HALF YEARS, JAEGER-LECOUL­TRE’S PER­PET­UAL CAL­EN­DAR NAR­ROWS THAT DIF­FER­ENCE TO JUST ONE DAY EV­ERY 122 YEARS, WHICH IN EF­FECT WILL MAIN­TAIN THE AC­CU­RACY OF ITS MOON PHASE FOR 3,887 YEARS. A TREAT FOR THE LADIES IS THE REN­DEZ-VOUS CE­LES­TIAL, WITH A SKY CHART DISC BEAU­TI­FULLY REN­DERED IN LAPIS LAZULI. IT SHOWS THE PAS­SAGE OF THE CON­STEL­LA­TIONS OF THE NORTH­ERN HEMI­SPHERE AND THE MONTHS OF THE YEAR. THE AU­TO­MATIC MOVE­MENT TURNS THE DISC OF STARS EV­ERY 23 HOURS, 56 MIN­UTES AND 4 SEC­ONDS.
