WHY THIS WATCH
Razor Thin, unique and One of a Kind
Jaeger Le-Coultre has been known for it's mastery of ultra-thin mechanical pieces since the early 1900s. JLC mastery is in full frame with this Vintage Inspired Ultra thin mechanical watch released in 100 pieces for The King's Man movie.
Impossibly Thin Movement
This watch is only 4.2mm thick and was inspired by an ultra-thin pocket watch from 1907, nicknamed The "Le Couteau" which means "the knife". This movement has a pocket watch architecture and is composed of 123 components and is assembled by the same watchmakers that are in charge of JLCs grand complications. The 849 is not only thin but also known for it's reliability.
The movement is housed in an all Pink-Gold 40mm case. At 4.25mm, this watch is beyond thin. You won't have to worry about this watch slipping under any cuff. Just as interesting is the winding crown at 12. There's a vintage style bow that covers the winding crown that was inspired by the original pocket watch. The bow is angled towards the lugs, so it doesn't stick out in front of the case. I was worried about how easy it would be to wind such a crown. I'll say this is probably the easiest winding watch I've ever laid fingers on. The bow acts like a perfect holder for your finger and the crown is very free flowing.
This watch is an easy choice for a standout dress watch that no-one else has. On the wrist, this watch cuts such an elegant and seamless profile. The bow at 12 really makes this watch look and feel special, and isn't obtrusive at all. The watch is a joy to wind, and the dial is refreshingly simple. The gator band is one of the most supple ones we have handled.
