Time and astronomy are old friends. Swiss watchmakers Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrate this affair with its Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2015 collection, paying tribute to the mysterious magnetism of astronomy.
The brand unveiled the collection at an intimate gathering at Cape Weligama Resort. The event welcomed a few of Chatham’s patrons to view the collection presented by Marc de Panafieu, Jaeger-LeCoultre Brand Director, Middle East and Indian Subcontinent, accompanied by Jaeger-LeCoultre Country Manager Dinesh Aswani along with astronomer Stefan Zietara.
The exclusive event at the Cape Weligama resort showcased pieces that stunned. One such piece was the Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à luantième Perpétuel, a timepiece set in baguette-cut diamonds and mother of pearl with perpetual calendar indications. The Rendez-Vous Moon is equipped with a wide moon phase indication accented by a mother-of-pearl moon display; Duomètre Quantième Lunaire is an interpretation of the revolutionary ‘Dual-Wing’ concept, featuring two independent power reserves.
