Jaeger LeCoultre Duometre Unique Travel Time

In 2007, Jaeger LeCoultre first introduced the Duometre Collection that caught all the chronograph lovers’ attention. The idea of the whole collection is to separate normal time keeping function of the watch from the chronograph function. Thus, the Duometre Collection uses the Dual-Wing ® concept—two separate power sources for each of the functions to make this happen.  Because of that, the Duometre has bi-directional winding. There are three sub-dials on the main dial—the first one at 9 to 10 o’clock position has regular hour and minute hands; the second one at 2 to 3 o’clock position has the chronograph minute and hour hands; and the third one at 6 o’clock position is the “jumping seconds” complication that makes the watches accurate to one-sixth of a second.

Later on, a new member joined the Duometre Collection—the Duometre Unique Travel Time (Ref. 6062420). Powered by the Jaeger LeCoultre Calibre 383, this time, the sub-dial of the second time zone with a digital jumping hour is located at 9 to 10 o’clock position. This is the first world time watch that can measure the second time zone’s time down to minutes. At 2 to 3 o’clock position is the sub-dial of the home time with standard dial. At 6 o’clock position is the sub-dial of day/night indication with hour disc and showed via world map which turns. On the two sides of the world time sub-dial are the 50 hours power reserve indicator for home time and second time zone. At the back of the 42 mm rose gold case engraved the names of cities corresponding to 24 time zones. With so much style and complications, this timepiece undoubtedly is the best travel companion.
