Jaeger LeCoultre Master Compressor Sport Complication Watches Review

Updated on January 6, 2015

Master Compressor

Jaeger LeCoultre Master Compressor collection consists of ultra-protected and reliable all-purpose sports and extreme activities watches (Master Compressor Diving watches is the most specialized line).

Master Compressor is remarkable for its sharp departure from the classically designed Master Control – it's inverse in its futuristic, space-age tendencies. Like Vacheron Constantin, Blancpain, Audemars Piguet, and several other high-end Swiss brands, Jaeger LeCoultre demonstrate versatility and creativity of the highest order, equally satisfying sensitivities of both the traditional and the new. This is how new traditions become established.

Complications

Master Compressor/Sports Complication watches feature the following functions: chronograph, mechanical alarm, world time, and GMT – seven models, men's and ladies, are currently in production. Jaeger LeCoultre take an unconventional and creative approach when putting all these functions on display.

Pointers, colored subdials, apertures and hands of various forms and sizes, joined by multi-leveled dials, indicate the function. Every watch is treated as an artifact, which leads to unprecedented visual variety. Highly advanced automatic movements beat inside the cases – hundreds of parts, dozens of jewels

Functions

The “compression” in Master Compression watches refers to the technological treatment the crown and the push buttons of the chronographs underwent in order to guarantee unrivalled water resistance.

Jaeger LeCoultre went all the way, as they often do, and equipped the Extreme World Chronograph model with a shock absorbing system that includes an air cushion. These functions compete with Blancpain's most innovative diving timepieces, such as the Fifty Fathoms and Aqualung.

Design and Materials

The multiplicity of functions, combined with Jaeger LeCoultre's propensity to use color (black, red, shades of gray), results in unusual visual diversity. Master Compression watches come encased in stainless steel, platinum, titanium, or pink gold, sometimes with two metals mixed in one timer; straps (rubber, satin, leather) and bracelets are both available. The variety of materials essentially renders each watch a minor collection of its own.

Ladies

Master Compression Ladies watches incorporate diamonds on the (rotating) bezel, and reduce the number of complications, keeping only the chronograph and the date. Interestingly, the unique triple date aperture reappears in Oris BC4 and Oris William F1 Team collections. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
