Jaeger thin 00 ALL to BLOG

Jaeger-LeCoultre announced one of the thinnest (if not the thinnest watch) to ever be produced, introducing the: “Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Thin Squelette”. Its tagline on the official press-release justifies the lightness as a way of fixating on the essentials of this time piece. The watch uses a typical movement with plates, bridges and two sapphire crystals to allow for an exposed front and back case. Thus exhibiting all its embellishments done by hand-engraving, patterns created with guilloche machines, diamond-set pieces and hand-painted with enamel, on the models that don’t feature the mother of pearls diamonds.

The previous record of the thinnest mechanical watch was held by the “Piaget Altiplano 900P”, which had a 3.65mm thick case. Although Jaeger hasn’t claimed to have the thinnest watch on the market, on comparing both watches side-by-side, the “Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Thin Squelette” seems to have won the unofficial title by a margin of 0.05 millimeters.
