If there is any doubt what a difference a dial can make, then the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar Meteorite will settle this question for good! While the “regular” version of this watch is a true classic, the meteorite dial turns it into an instant eye-catcher, especially when you opt for the 18K pink gold case.
There is true synergy between the pink gold of the case, and the subdued gray tones of the meteorite dial. Its texture gives the watch an exotic look, while the contrast ensures excellent readability. With a diameter of 39mm and a thickness of 10.6mm, the watch is perfectly proportioned, as any dress watch should. It features a very classical full calendar layout, with the moon phase on a disc displayed below the running seconds. Day and month have each a window of their own at the top part of the dial, while the date is indicated around the periphery of the dial by a hand with a red crescent.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar Meteorite is equipped with caliber 865, an automatic movement which Jaeger-LeCoultre makes in-house. It features 305 parts and runs at 28.800 bph, while offering a power reserve of 40 hours. The oscillating weight is fitted with a 22 karat gold segment to increase its winding efficiency. Being a Jaeger-LeCoultre the finish is top notch. As part of the Master-collection also this Master Calendar Meteorite has to pass 1.000 hours of testing before Jaeger-LeCoultre will ship it off to one of their resellers or boutiques.
With the meteorite dial, Jaeger-LeCoultre gives the Master Calendar a dash more personality. Some might still prefer the classic look of the regular dial, but for those who are looking for something slightly more exotic, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar Meteorite ticks all the boxes!
