Jaeger-LeCoultre – Master Calendar Meteorite Dial

Jaeger-LeCoultre - Master Calendar Meteorite Dial watch

New Jaeger-LeCoultre watch that will be presented at the SIHH 2015 in Geneva. A meteorite stone used in dial changes the look of the traditional Master Calendar collection.

The treatment of the meteorite stone is very demanding to be used in such high-class watch. It requires much time to get perfectly cut dial, which will be an aesthetic also. This unique pattern shown by each cut gives this watch more agressive appeal, making this watch appropiate choice for the younger people also.
