Duomètre Unique Travel Time rose gold interpretation of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s unprecedented Dual-Wing movement, representing Jaeger-LeCoultre’s advanced time zone watch world Technical achievements have provided an unprecedented experience for travellers who love fine watches. This watch is the world’s first world time watch that can adjust the second time zone to the minute. The wearer can precisely adjust the second time zone in any country on any continent in the world. The Duomètre Unique Travel Time watch adheres to the technical and aesthetic spirit of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre series of wings, emphasizing the superb watchmaking technology of the Grand Workshop of Ru Valley. Precision machinery and elegant temperament embody the essence of all works in the Great Workshop since 1833. The past, present and future are perfectly blended in this unparalleled work.
The dual-wing system of this movement is divided into two groups of mechanical devices: one group displays the local time and the other displays the time in the second time zone. The two sets of mechanical devices share the same adjustment mechanism, and each has its own independent power source, thereby avoiding the energy loss caused by the interaction between the devices. The operation of the second time zone will not affect the overall operation of the watch, thereby greatly improving the accuracy of timing. Each mechanical device has a power reserve of 50 hours, and a crown can wind two barrels at the same time, which is extremely convenient to use. Winding counterclockwise adjusts the local time, while winding clockwise adjusts the travel time zone. Despite the complex functions of the watch, the dial texture decoration is still delicate and clear when read. Two exquisite sub dials are symmetrically distributed on the dial, reflecting the overall balance of the watch: the 2 o’clock position window displays the local time and minute indicators, and the 10 o’clock position window indicates the time jump and minutes in the travel time zone. The earth at 6 o’clock is synchronized with the travel time zone display, and the day and night display ring and time zone display panel are combined to perfectly display the world map. A crown can simultaneously adjust the travel time zone time in position 1 and the local time in position 2, and the power spring device in position 0. After the two time zone displays are synchronized, the wearer only needs to use the buttons at the 8 o’clock and 10 o’clock positions to adjust the time jump display of the left sub-dial according to the destination country. For unconventional time zones, the minute display can be adjusted independently via the crown in position 1.
The details of the watch are perfect and exquisite. The sapphire crystal case back reveals the Jaeger-LeCoultre movement 383. Proudly, the splint and gear train are chamfered by hand and decorated with polished feet. The drive chain is also chamfered or smoothed by hand chamfering or polished feet. This decoration is inspired by the brand’s long-established pocket watches and sets a new benchmark in Jaeger-LeCoultre’s many outstanding watchmaking achievements. The back of the case is engraved with the name of the city, echoing 24 time zones.
Duomètre Unique Travel Time The rose gold model inherits the essence of the Duomètre series. It pays tribute to the superb technology and precise timing of the fine watchmaking industry, highlights the history of watchmaking for more than 180 years and predicts the future.
