Jaeger-LeCoultre next. And we start with the Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpetual.

Gyrotourbillon. 92 parts, 0.4g, 8.8mm diameter with constant force. Now smaller and lighter than the earlier versions.

Westminster chime repeater. Four tribuchet hammers striking on crystal gongs.

Perpetual Calendar which can be set forwards and backwards.

Inspired a trilogy of three further pieces in guilloche blue enamel.

First the Master Ultra Thin Moon which we have covered in a pre-SIHH press release earlier. Second is the Master Ultra Thin Perpetual Calendar and the Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon.
