Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme W-Alarm Watch
With a name like Master Compressor Extreme W-Alarm Watch, you can be assured you are going to be in for something pretty impressive. The Jaeger-LeCoultre will only be available in Tourneau stores; however, Tourneau is the largest global watch retail chain which sells numerous watch brands. One only has to glance at the watch face for a moment to know this watch has a host of impressive functions.
World Timer: The time is indicated for many major cities such as Moscow, London and New York. In addition three natural destinations are displayed such as Galapagos adding an originality to the World Time feature.
Mechanical Alarm: The cut out window to the left of the dial displays the alarm time.
Time: The hour indicators are bold and easy to read, so that although the dial is displaying other features, the time display still shows the strongest presence.
Date: To the right of the dial at the 3 'o' clock position.
This watch is a superb example of functionality and beauty. It is truly an art of organization. As to be expected this watch is not up for the mass market but is available in two limited editions: 20 watches in 18k gold and titanium and another 50 watches comprised only of titanium. The 46.3mm wide case is the size of most of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme Collection.
This watch is a perfect travel companion as it has a shock absorbent system which protects the movement from sudden jolts, as well as the world timer and the mechanical alarm feature. The crown also has a unique security lock. The final compliment to the watch is a leather and fabric strap which was designed for extreme comfort.
