BUILD­ING UP­WARDS

The Peak Selections: Timepieces - - Centre Of Creation -

On first sight, the JaegerLeCoultre Mas­ter Grande Tra­di­tion Tour­bil­lon Cylin­drique looks like a “reg­u­lar” tour­bil­lon time­piece: The tour­bil­lon takes cen­tre stage in this 42mm pink gold watch, sim­ply com­ple­mented by a dial with gold ap­plied hour mark­ers, du­alfin­ish hands, and a sil­vered, grained dial. But make no mis­take, its un­usual tour­bil­lon fea­tures a hair­spring that is ver­ti­cally ori­ented in­stead of flatly coiled – a de­sign in­spired by his­tor­i­cal naval chronome­ters.
