Moving into day three of SIHH and a neverending stream of new watch releases. This release by JLC caught my particular attention. Hereunder my initial thoughts concerning this particular release.
Another knockout from JLC, this one is a perpetual calendar with the enamel dial in blue. Previously seen only with a moon phase, cased in white gold and limited to 100 pieces. This perpetual calendar also has the updated movement (Calibre 868A/2) with increased power reserve to 72 hours. In my opinion this is great due to the number of complications involved with setting the watch from complete stop.
In addition, the calendar year window has been removed from the 7:50 position to the month indicator subdial at 12, making the watch more symmetrical as a whole. Meanwhile, the watch maintains a case diameter of 39mm with a slightly increase in thickness to 10.44mm.
This is a limited run similar to the moon phase only version with 100 pieces and housed in a white gold case. List price is EUR 55.500,00 VAT Included
