Duomètre Quantième Lunaire
Of modern watchmakers in the high horology space a few names come to mind F.P Journe, Greubel Forsey and MB & F. These titans of modern crazy watchmaking are a watchlovers dream. But what if I told there is one brand that not only is crazier, but has been for about 170 years longer than the others mentioned. That brand is Jaeger LeCoultre.
The Val De Joux based manufacturer is truly one of those manufactures that can claim legendary status. Having supplied movements for Patek, Vacheron and others. There is a reason they are known as the watchmakers watchmaker.
So what happens when they decide to have a bit of fun? Take a look at this Duomètre Quantième Lunaire. What is so special about this beautiful modern looking watch. Well what about a flying second, two 50 hour barrels of power reserve and two gear trains. The list goes on and on.
Why two gear trains though? Well all extra complication take power from the barrel and the less power you have, the less accurate your watch is. The sudden reduction in power when for instance a date change happens effects the chronometric accuracy of your watch. So Jaeger decided to let another barrel handle all other complication and have one dedicated to time keeping, therefore ensuring a steady power delivery and great accuracy. Dont underestimate an old dog.
