Jaeger-lecoul­tre brings the essence of its brand to Vil­lag­gio Mall in Doha

Virtuozity - - WATCH NEWS -

Jaeger-lecoul­tre is set to bring the essence of the Swiss Man­u­fac­ture in the Val­lée de Joux to the con­tem­po­rary set­ting of the Vil­lag­gio Mall in Doha, Qatar, from 26 Novem­ber to 5 De­cem­ber 2015.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will fea­ture hand­crafted time­pieces pre­sent­ing novelties, in­clud­ing the new Geophysic col­lec­tion (pic­tured), the iconic At­mos, the Mas­ter Ul­tra Thin and Rev­erso col­lec­tions.

The Geophysic col­lec­tion was first un­veiled in 1958—it was an in­stru­ment for sci­en­tists work­ing in the In­ter­na­tional Geo­phys­i­cal Year. It was mostly a tool, and it could be used in the harsh­est of con­di­tions, but nat­u­rally it be­came some­thing of a col­lec­tor’s item, due to the fact that it was ex­tremely ac­cu­rate and had an as­ton­ish­ing move­ment in­side.

In 2015, Jaeger-lecoul­tre in­tro­duced the new Geophysic col­lec­tion, which launched with two mod­els—the True Sec­ond (which just dis­plays time and date), and the Univer­sal Time (a world­timer). The former is pow­ered by the Cal­i­bre 770, while the former uses the Cal­i­bre 772.

This move­ment and more will be on show at the ex­hi­bi­tion, which will of­fer ed­u­ca­tional and in­spir­ing in­sight into the realm of haute horol­ogy. It will also pro­vide vis­i­tors with the op­por­tu­nity to be­come im­mersed within the in­tri­ca­cies of pre­ci­sion watch­mak­ing.

The ex­hi­bi­tion, which lasts un­til early De­cem­ber, will be lo­cated in Via Domo, Ground Floor, Vil­lag­gio Mall, Doha.
