New High Jewelry timepieces to its Calibre 101 Collection !
Jaeger-LeCoultre unveiled One-of-a-Kind Reinterpretations of the JLC secret watches… set with more than 1,000 diamonds. As watchmakers sought to prove that precision and miniaturisation were not mutually exclusive, the Maison developed Calibre 101 in 1929. Half a century before the advent of computer-aided design and production technology, it was a remarkable feat of miniaturisation and became recognized as the world’s smallest mechanical movement. * Calibre 101 measures 14 mm x 4.8 mm. Today, the Bvlgari Piccolissimo Movement is the smallest in the world *12.3mm !
The 101 Bangle, first presented in 2020, has been reinterpreted in two one-of-a-kind pieces – one in pink gold with a red lacquer dial complemented by diamonds; and one in white gold with a snow-white lacquer dial complemented by sapphires and diamonds.
Defined by four rows of diamonds – two outer rows of claw-set diamonds set on either side of a double row of grain-set diamonds – the 101 Secrets forms a rive of light and sparkle that flows around the wrist, giving no hint of the timepiece concealed within it. These new models highlight the skills of the gem-setters in the Manufacture’s Métiers Rares™ atelier.
