The annual Geneva International Watch Fair is about to begin. The reporting team in front of the Watch House has arrived in Geneva and will bring you the latest and fastest comprehensive watch fair report. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomè tre Unique Travel Time watch is an interpretation of the unprecedented Dual-Wing movement created by Jaeger-LeCoultre, representing the advanced technological achievements of Jaeger-LeCoultre in the world’s time zone watch area, and for the love of exquisite watches The homes provide an unprecedented experience.
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 Duomè tre series of wings, emphasizing the superb watchmaking technology of the Grand Workshop of Ru Valley. Precise 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 mechanism 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 secondary dials are symmetrically distributed on the dial, reflecting the overall balance of the watch: the 2 o’clock position window displays the local hour and minute hands, 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 combined with the day and night display ring and time zone display panel, the world map is perfectly presented. A crown can simultaneously adjust the travel time zone time in position 1 and the local time in position 2, and the power spring mechanism in position 0.
After the two time zone displays are synchronized, the wearer can adjust the time display of the left sub-dial according to the destination country with the help of the 8 o’clock and 10 o’clock buttons. 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 caseback is engraved with the city’s name, echoing 24 time zones.
