This dark blue bi-dimensional three-axis tourbillon watch, with elegant hands running upstream of the dark blue dial, and rectangular cut diamonds surrounding the case, perfectly interprets Jaeger-LeCoultre’s extraordinary watchmaking craftsmanship.
180 years of complex function creation, 180 years of creative spirit, 180 years of passion. From Antoine LeCoultre to generations of watchmakers, they have passed on the spirit of the Jaeger-LeCoultre and continue to write a new chapter in the legend of watchmaking.

An innovative masterpiece, the Duomètre Sphérotourbillon watch combines unparalleled mechanical performance, elegance and superior complexity to meet the expectations of the most discerning watch enthusiast and collector. The master watchmaker and the jewellery master cooperated to show the new work of the Grande Complication large-scale complication series with the excellence of handicraft skills. Duomètre Sphérotourbillon Blue dark blue biplane three-dimensional biaxial tourbillon watch. Dark blue dial.
Fine Watchmaking and Fine Jewellery
A rectangular cut diamond surrounds the white gold case, and the Duomètre Sphérotourbillon Blue watch is paired with a dark blue dial to present a variety of light and shadow effects, showing the ultimate beauty of complex functions. The flying three-dimensional dual-axis tourbillon staged a fascinating visual feast. The window at 9 o’clock on the side of the case allows a glimpse of the tourbillon’s elegant dance. The two separate areas of the dial reflect the revolutionary Dual-Wing design concept, while the baguette-cut diamonds highlight the double magic. The stones on the left side of the dial are arranged in a fan shape, surrounded by a window showing the secret of the three-dimensional tourbillon, showing the charming Art Deco style. The cleverly arranged main dial is visible on the right side of the dial, and the local time and date indication is located at the lower position, which is easy to read. Another 24-hour small dial occupies the top of the dial, showing the time in the second time zone. The small second hand is located below the dial. The blue gold sandstone paved on the inside and outside of the small dial is sparkling, showing a strong contrast between the different functions of the watch.
The Dual-Wing design concept allows Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmakers to create the first tourbillon that can be precisely adjusted. The diamond-studded button at 2 o’clock can reset the small seconds hand under the tourbillon to complete the flyback timing function. The feature of the flyback chronograph function is that the operation of the adjustment mechanism is not stopped, the small second hand returns to zero, and it immediately resumes operation, thereby maintaining the watch’s maximum accuracy.

Caliber 382, ​​the epitome of watchmaking
This watch carefully retains the aesthetic design of the Duomètre series. The complicated gem setting process and the intricate movement structure contrast with each other. To make everyone happy, the watch’s transparent caseback reveals the decorative back and perfectly presents the 382 movement, which is completely assembled and decorated by hand. The fine processing on the unprocessed nickel-silver semi-finished movement reinforces the uniqueness of the Duomètre Sphérotourbillon bi-wing three-dimensional tourbillon watch. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s signature radial stripe decoration (côtes soleillées), beautiful lines of concave and convex angles, various shapes are intertwined and harmonious: the aesthetic design of the Jaeger-LeCoultre 382 movement fully reflects the high level of clock art.
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s gem setting technique
Traditional gem setting is a craft that uses gems to make decorative arts shine. In the mechanical setting process, the craftsman only needs to place the gemstone into the machined mounting base, and then let the inlay cover the gemstone and fix it. The traditional gem setting process is very different. The professional setting master must first determine the number of gems and their placement in advance, and then create two independent holes: the first hole is extremely fine to determine the gem Accurate setting position, another hole is used to enlarge the first hole to the size of each gem. In the long and arduous process, the jeweler must carefully cut and cut the inserts repeatedly to gradually shape the precious metal claws that hold the gemstones. Then, the jeweler needs to carefully adjust the setting position of the gemstone with extremely sophisticated skills. Exquisite craftsmanship has made each piece a truly unique treasure. Even if it is made into thousands of similar items, it is impossible to find exactly the same works. Square diamond inlays are suitable for angle-cut gems such as square, rectangular or trapezoidal. A square diamond inserter also follows the above steps. The obvious difference is that this process requires a longer manual operation to place each gemstone in the base or setting.

In Order To Put On The Black Water Ghost, His Whole Life Was Ruined

Recently I saw such a real watch case. In Lingang University Town, Pudong, Shanghai, college student Fan saw his roommate wearing a more than 80,000 Rolex blackwater ghost, jealous and dreaming. After all, the watch is a roommate, so you ca n’t just grab it openly. What should you do? The real black and fake black water ghost pictures provided by the police, so Fan Mou came up with an idea. He bought a fake black water ghost online at a very low price, and while the roommate was not paying attention, he dropped the bag with the real black water ghost and hid the real watch in the roommate’s shoes. Take the real watch away. His wishful thinking abacus worked well, thinking that God did not know it. But the fake watch is a fake watch after all, not only the workmanship is very rough, but also the calendar displayed is not correct, so it didn’t take long to reveal the filling. When the roommate noticed that the Blackwater Ghost was dropped, he immediately called the police. According to the situation and experience of the police, the police may have committed the crime. After investigation, finally locked Fan, and found a fake express box in Fan’s wardrobe. Fan has been released on bail by the police pending trial. At the time of his youth, I am afraid that the whole life will be rewritten. What is the charm of the freshly-produced Heishuigui Heishuigui, so that Fan will not hesitate to try? Blackwater Ghost is a member of the Submariner series, divided into versions with and without a calendar according to function. According to the picture, more than 80,000 black water ghosts are the version of the Golden Band calendar. Rolex’s calendar is usually located at 3 o’clock, with a design commonly known as ‘bubble eyes’. The biggest advantage of this design is that it can enlarge the calendar and make it more visually clear. Rolex is also the first brand to ‘open’ the calendar on the dial. Since Rolex opened the window, many brands have followed suit. As the explosion-proof model of Rolex, the Blackwater Ghost is a diving watch with a water resistance of 300 meters, but it is less heavy than a sea-dweller with stronger waterproof performance. It achieves a balance between water resistance and practicality, so it is also very suitable for daily wear. Coupled with the classic shape and Rolex’s name, the black water ghost has been very hot. And it’s easier to buy than Green Water Ghost. Although compared with most watches, Black Water Ghost is still difficult to buy, which is a premium style. The Green Water Ghost is even more difficult to buy, not to say how high the technical content of the watch and how difficult it is to make it. In fact, this is the brand and distributors working together to limit production, hoard watches, raise prices, and jointly create the ‘scarcity’ illusion in the market. Let’s take the stainless steel black water ghost (model 116610LN) as an example. Its public price is 65,900 yuan. As usual, if you go to a specialty store or watch shop to buy a Swiss watch, it may be slightly discounted, such as ten percent off. In other words, you can usually start with a Swiss watch at a price slightly lower than the public price. When encountering some brands with a high public price, the discount might be a little bigger. But this situation does not apply to black water ghosts (more certainly not to green water ghosts). Although the price of the stainless steel blackwater ghost is 65,900 yuan, the actual market price is more than 70,000 yuan, which is a super-common price, and a lot of money. Although this watch is actually not too small, you really can’t buy it smoothly. Rolex is a brand that knows how to make watches and knows how to do business. To put it bluntly, even the best brands are also profitable. Regardless of how long your brand has a long history and high technological content, you can only wait to close the door without making money. Rolex is no exception. It is a brand that knows how to make watches and also knows how to do business. In the hype of their own watches, Rolex is a first-class master, black water ghosts, green water ghosts are living examples. To be practical, the quality of this black water ghost in the case of this article is still good. It is made of Oystersteel (904L stainless steel) and yellow gold, with a gold bracelet and a scratch-resistant ceramic bezel. The watch has passed Rolex’s exclusive Observatory precision timepiece certification, and the time difference between the time and the range reaches plus or minus two seconds. The green tag is a waterproof and durable Oyster case certified by the Super Chronometer Precision Chronometer. It uses Rolex’s classic 3135 movement. This movement has been around for decades since its introduction in the late 1980s. Rolex has been making minor changes and improving it even more. Even big brands such as Rolex have continued to improve after developing their own movements, let alone other brands? Therefore, having a reliable self-produced movement is actually very difficult. Some of Rolex’s new watch movements have been upgraded to 3235. Although hard indicators such as power reserve are much higher than 3135, it still takes time to test how the market performs. Blackwater ghosts are of course a good example, but no matter how good the blackwater ghosts are, they can only be achieved through legitimate means. In order to put on the black water ghost as soon as possible, holding on to luck, and eventually breaking national laws, this approach is really not desirable. There are many good watches in this world. Even if you can’t afford black water ghosts for a while, there are many other watches to choose from. Buying a watch must be within your means, and a watch that suits you is the one that is really comfortable to wear.
