The movements of the stars have long inspired humanity to
strive for greatness; to shape matter into forms that capture the essence of
time itself. Celebrating this timeless legacy, iconic Swiss watchmakers
Jaeger-LeCoultre hosted an intimate dinner to showcase its very latest Salon
International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2017 collection.
Together with exclusive brand partner Chatham Luxury,
Jaeger-LeCoultre Brand Director Middle East, India, Turkey & Greece, Marc
de Panafieu, Area Sales Manager Alejandro Garcia Estefan and astronomer Keith
Cobby hosted a select gathering of Chatham’s patrons as they were invited to
experience first-hand, a specially curated range of stunning timepieces from
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Rendez-Vous, Reverso, and Geophysic collections. The event
was hosted under the stars at Governors Rooftop Mount Lavinia Hotel, Sri Lanka.
The showcase was complemented by a presentation on
Horology and Astronomy by Keith Cobby, during which invitees were presented with
a deeper understanding of the intrinsic connection between the movements of the
stars and their legacy in the measurement of time.
“Since our entry into Sri Lanka with our partners at
Chatham Luxury, we have seen our customer base grow, and become more passionate
about the legacy of elegance epitomized in Jaeger-LeCoultre wristwatches, and
we look forward to developing these relationships in future,” Marc de Panafieu
noted.

Visionary watchmaker Antoine LeCoultre first founded his
workshop in 1833. Ever since, Jaeger-LeCoultre has been synonymous with a style
that has elicited the same wonderment decade after decade. Over the past
century, Jaeger-LeCoultre has created masterpieces like the Millionometer , and
paved the way for the precise manufacture of watch parts, the keyless watch,
and many more of the world’s most stylish and complex wristwatches. Utilising
stones such as meteorite stone and lapis lazuli, these timepieces have been
designed for those who value time, and seek to celebrate its momentary and
fleeting nature.
The latest collection from Jaeger-LeCoultre represents
the most advanced distillation of the brand’s time honored signature style,
blending impeccable timekeeping accuracy with breathtaking artistry and
craftsmanship to produce wristwatches of unmatched elegance.

Among the masterful pieces displayed at the event was the
new Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time in Platinum. One of the most visually
impressive watches in the Jaeger-LeCoultre SIHH 2017 collection, the new range
combines a world-time complication with an “orbital” flying
tourbillon allowing the time in twenty-four cities around the world to be read
simultaneously. Available in a limited series of 100 pieces, the Geophysic
Tourbillon Universal Time watch is a testament to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s remarkable
watchmaking skills expressed through the ease-of-use and operating.
