DESCRIPTION

  • Master Compressor Extreme W-Alarm

    The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 912 features two additional functions that globetrotters had hitherto dreamed of in vain: world time, in order to get their bearings instantly amid the maze of time zones; and an alarm mechanism endowed with unusual properties and that drew upon the full force of expertise within the Manufacture.
    The latest newcomer to the Master Compressor line embodies the entire Extreme universe of which it displays the now famous characteristics. The conception of the extraordinary patented two-part case fulfils the highest performance demands: its case is connected to its support by an original system that absorbs shocks to an unprecedented degree and enables the movement to pursue its task smoothly and accurately. This paragon of precision is teamed with an interchangeable wristband and distinguished by peerless sturdiness and reliability.

    An extraordinary heavy-duty movement

    The new 36.2-mm diameter automatic movement, Calibre 912, is one of the most imposing of its generation. It is naturally equipped with the latest technical feats stemming from Jaeger-LeCoultre’s ongoing research: a variable-inertia balance fitted with adjusting screws on the outer rim; unidirectional winding; as well as an oscillating weight with ball-bearings in ceramics – a high-tech offering the invaluable advantage of requiring no maintenance or lubrication. As the ultimate proof of its extraordinary sturdiness, the original alarm mechanism of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 912 is subjected to the implacable trial of the striker test.

    Innovative and functional innovations for the alarm function

    The distinctive conception of the Master Compressor Extreme’s shock-absorbing case called for in-depth research on the acoustic qualities of the alarm, leading to the creation of a state-of-the-art gong. Instead of the traditional gong fixed to the back of the case, a closed and angled circular gong surrounds the movement and is secured to the case middle by two pins. It is struck by the hammer at a precise point near this point of attachment. The geometry has been specifically revised so as to optimise the qualities of the sound emitted. Finally, a special secret alloy has been used to produce it. These innovations guarantee a powerful and harmonious tone endowed with consistently identical intensity and characteristics, whether the watch is on or off the wrist.

    The alarm function comprises another remarkable new feature: a double pushpiece enabling the owner to decide whether to start or stop the alarm function. To achieve this, the watchmakers of the Manufacture have developed a shift system enabling one to control its operation at will: simply pressing on the lower part of the double-sided pushpiece prevents the alarm from striking, whereas the same action on the upper part ensures its immediate activation. Engineers had to demonstrate the full measure of the ingenuity in successfully fitting this system around the city crown at 12 o’clock.

    Reflecting these inner technical innovations, the Master Compressor Extreme W-Alarm watch is distinguished by an original display of the alarm time by means of two juxtaposed discs that appear through a perfectly readable window at 9 o’clock. The positioning of the hour disc is followed by the minute one, thus enabling the user to select any time in five-minute intervals. The watch dial also carries a date window at 3 o’clock with fast adjustment integrated into the alarm function crown, a first on the Memovox alarm movement.

    Instant reading of the 24 time zones

    World time display becomes an indispensable function when setting off to the four corners of the world. The 24 time zones may be read off by means of the city disc and the rotating 24-hour ring.

    Crafted from steel and grade 5 titanium

    The Master Compressor Extreme W-Alarm comes with a steel support and a satin-brushed grade 5 titanium case. The aluminium city crown at 10 o’clock is clad in a distinctive red colour achieved by anodic oxidation (also known as eloxage). The dial plays on black and red contrasts. Thanks to the ingenious patented interchangeable wristband system integrated within the case middle, the black alligator leather strap can be removed in no time at all and replaced by a rugged rubber one.

    Clearly cut out for daring accomplishments, the Master Compressor Extreme W-Alarm unites for the very first time all the qualities that are indispensable to adventurers of the extreme, for whom borders are only a distant memory.
