First unveiled in 1992, Jaeger‑LeCoultre’s Master Control Collection is an elite wristwatch lineup that draws inspiration from the elite Swiss brand’s watches from the 1950s. Taking its name from the ‘1000 Hours Control’ certification that each watch in the collection has received, the Master Control collection is painstakingly crafted with an immense focus on reliability, power reserve, and long-term performance, ultimately giving way to a beautiful, elegant, and understated six-item horological lineup.

A decidedly sophisticated take on an urban EDC watch, the Master Control range watches are all built around hand-worked 40mm stainless steel case with an outwardly sloping bezel, dynamically curved lugs, and a transparent exhibition case back, that comes paired with a soft, tan matte finish of Novonappa calf leather band linked to a Presto Spring lug attachment. Sourced from one of the finest tanneries in France, the band takes on a unique patina over time with daily use. At the heart of each of these impressive urological offerings is one of Jaeger‑LeCoultre’s cutting-edge automatic movements equipped with a myriad of emblematic functions including a triple calendar complication and a geographic. While all sharing a 40mm case and a common design language, the Master Control Collection features several different style timepieces, from the entry-level Master Control Date Automatic to the more elaborate Master Control Calendar Automatic Chronograph. In addition to boasting the aforementioned 1,000 Hours Control certification, each watch is also backed by a generous 8-year warranty and comes sold in a special presentation box. Available now, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Collection starts at $8,075.
