Today, the Hybris Mechanica À Grande Sonnerie by Jaeger-LeCoultre was selected by Carmelo Anthony as the Haute Time Watch of the Day. This impressive timepiece is part of The Grandes Complications collection by Jaeger-LeCoultre, and is known for the longest melody a complication has ever chimed, playing four full Westminster Chimes powered by a 12-hour power reserve.
The watch case is 18k white gold and houses a Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 182, mechanical hand wound movement with perpetual calendar and a flying tourbillon. The Hybris Mechanica À Grande Sonnerie is shown here on a black alligator strap with white gold double folding buckle.
Using 27 complications and over 1,300 components to create this watchmaking masterpiece, Jaeger-LeCoultre uses its years of skill and research to develop a truly amazing movement. The Hybris Mechanica À Grande Sonnerie is truly a work of art by Jaeger-LeCoultre, only 30 pieces created in a limited edition.
