The extreme enamel micro-painting technology and advanced watchmaking technology are subtly merged, showing Jaeger-LeCoultre’s peak achievements as a top watchmaker.

Years of tempering, achievements
Lotus micro-painted enamel: years of tempering, achievement
The Jaeger-LeCoultre master of enamel micro-painting puts time and perseverance to present the elegant form of lotus perfectly on the dial with rare traditional techniques. The yellow color, which represents the exclusive color of ancient Chinese emperors, is used as the background color of the enamel dial to set off the magnificent blooming lotus. The glory and splendor are naturally unparalleled.
The micro-painted enamel dial can be described as the perfect crystallization of a long process. For a long time, it has become a coveted art treasure for its connoisseurs and collectors with its extraordinary artistic value and never deforming and fading. The masterpieces of micro-painted enamel presented by Jaeger-LeCoultre are selected from top-quality enamel glazes and created by the talented Jaeger-LeCoultre enamelists with great dedication and are highly regarded by the world.
First, apply multi-layer transparent white enamel to the dial to create a bright background color. Then, use a brush to dip a color pigment containing different metal oxides to depict the pattern texture of lotus petals, stamens, and flower stems. Repeated calcination until the desired color effect is finally achieved. Each calcination is performed at a high temperature of 800 to 850 degrees, which is the most risky step in the entire enamel manufacturing process. In addition, in order to ensure the perfect mechanical performance of the watch, each brush stroke of the enamel painter needs to be extremely accurate, and the error is controlled within 0.2 mm. Each process needs to be meticulously crafted, and it is necessary to control the time perfectly. It takes more than a hundred hours to show the natural and beautiful state on the square dial.
很少 Few schools today teach the traditional technique of micro-painting enamel, and high-quality enamel has become increasingly rare.

Crafted, extraordinary example

Press the button at 9 o’clock to start the minute repeater function. By tapping the sounds of the gongs in the watch in turn, the hours, quarter clocks and minutes are reported. The mellow and pure time signal ringtone is a breakthrough achievement in the field of minute repeater watches. The time signal sound of the crystal reed is comparable to that of famous brand instruments.
In order not to break the overall artistic beauty presented by the dial enamel painting, Jaeger-LeCoultre deliberately removed the hour or minute display on the dial and instead adopted two simple and implicit indications: the torque released through the dual barrel The indicator is set at 4 o’clock, and the power reserve display is set at 8 o’clock. Through the hollow window on the right side of the dial, you can clearly see the operation of the regulator that measures the hammering speed. This device is equipped with the minute repeater function to give people a refreshing experience.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Lotus Master Minute Repeater Minute Repeater uses a platinum case with a diameter of 44 mm and is equipped with a Jaeger-LeCoultre 947 manual winding movement. With black alligator strap. Limited production of one piece.

Dial enamel painting shows the overall artistic beauty
The Jaeger-LeCoultre 947 calibre has a 15-day power reserve, which can be described as a peerless piece in a multifunctional and complex watch. The power reserve function up to 15 days is unique to the minute repeater. Naturally, it must be equipped with a unique display device. The device is located at 8 o’clock on the dial and displays the power stored in the watch with a number of 15 to 1. Another amazing thing is that the 947 movement is equipped with a mechanism to measure the accuracy of the mainspring-the torque meter. It can display the torque area where the watch can reach the best operating state to assist the power reserve display. At 4 o’clock, the clockwork torque indicator is displayed in a numerical range between 0 and 8.
The timepieces that stand out from the rest are that they dare to challenge the principles that the industry adheres to and that they produce very little. The Master Minute Repeater minute repeater is such an extraordinary watch, which makes everyone’s admiration overflow with words.
