Jaeger-LeCoultre 163842A 43mm Master Grand Réveil 163.24.2a SS Perpetual Automatic

Speaking of the design, this JLC 163.84.2a is a bit large, which is quite expected considering its complications. Its mirror finish stainless steel case has a diameter of 43 mm, and approximately 16 mm thick. Not a bulky type, though; it still a comfortable one to wear and has no oversized look. Its caseback is solid, while the whole case is 50 m water resistant for practical sake. Read-ability is not an issue at all due to the ingenious layout of its glare-proofed Sapphire protected Silvered sunray dial, as well as the Superluminova coated hands and markers.

The handcrafted timepiece features Perpetual calendar with day, date, month and a four-digit year, and a Moonphase indicator in both Northern and Southern hemispheres. Similar to its rose gold variant, the watch is fitted with Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 909/1-440C, JLC’s in house Swiss automatic self winding 36 jewels movement that beats at a high-frequency, and provides around 45 hours of power reserve under full wind. Not only a precise one in accuracy, you can be sure that this sophisticated caliber is also a first rate in terms of reliability.

In addition, this Master Grand Reveil also comes equipped with an integrated mechanical Alarm that can be conveniently set for either ringing for its pure sound --hammer strikes the gong, or silently vibrating. This alarm options are controlled by a switch located on the left edge of the watch. While the watch’s other functions can be conveniently set and adjusted using the two fluted crown on the right hand side.

For such a masterpiece, this Jaeger-LeCoultre Q163842A is a priceless one. The original suggested retail price of this steel on leather Swiss automatic mechanical watch is $29,700.00, however, that amount would be nothing compared to its beauty and quality offerings. Like an artwork, it is the kind of timepiece that can only be valued by heart.
