The Master Date and Geographic are 39mm wide while the Master Chronograph is 40mm. With a simple but comprehensive two-tone dial, the outer part is brushed while the inner circle is grained, and the result is beautiful. The sector markings are black and the date screen employs a snowy date wheel with glowing blue numerals. The hands, as with all 3 versions, are a skeletonised baton style that appears black in individual but reveals as blued steel on JLC’s website.The Jaeger-LeCoultre Mater Control Date’s 39mm-wide instance is just 8.5mm thick, thanks to its slender JLC 899/1 automatic movement within. The 899/1 is a 4Hz movement with a 38-hour power reserve provided with one barrel. On wrist, the Date is easy-wearing and lovely, with a slender profile and excellent legibility. This 12-hour chronograph includes a 30-minute sub dial and no date. The equilibrium of this dial design isn’t to be understated and of the three new models, the chronograph really puts the blue accents to best use. The outside tachymetre scale and the chronograph scales are all rendered in this trendy, saturated light blue. Combined with the stark legibility of the black accents along with the baton hands, the blue manages to add a youthful flare to the look.
