A modern classic.
Triple calendar watches have been around for a long time. They started off as a complication on pocket watches. In the 30s and 40s more and more wristwatches were produced with this calendar function since these watches were quite advanced pieces of technique at that time. Today, when you can find anything on the internet, practical watches with cool complications seem to be valued a little less. This doesn’t change the beauty and craftsmanship of such a Jaeger and the movement hidden inside.
What makes this Jaeger so beautiful is the balanced design. This watch is 37 mm. in diameter which is a good size for a gents dress watch. A little smaller could’ve done the job for any dress watch but to keep the design subtle and balanced with all the details that come with a triple calendar movement is a big challenge, and Jaeger nailed it with this model.
The Slightly domed silver dial gives this watch a bit of a vintage character, this feature was seen a lot in the 50s and 60s. The applied hour markers are quite glossy, which claim most of the attention going to this watch. The result is that you still have three windows in the dial for the days, months and the moon phase, however, they seem to fade away a little because of the glossiness of the case and hour markers, giving you the idea that this watch is not that busy. Comes with box, papers, and Service papers 2020……
