As with any Jaeger-LeCoultre, this watch is a treat to both examine and wear. Following the design language of the Master collection, it features a pared-down and understated design with round forms and clean lines. Yet despite the overall simplicity, there exists a high level of refinement in the details, such as the double-edge hands, the golden brown and midnight blue moon phase indicator, and the beautifully finished movement visible from the case back. All of this in a modern 39mm package that, for many, is the perfect size for a dress watch.

Dial, Hands, & Crystal: The black sun-ray dial is nearly perfect with just a small smudge at the 58 minute marker. The seconds hand shows minor degradation. The sapphire glass is in good condition with a few small but notable marks on the underside of the crystal near the 1-2 o’clock position. I included a photo that highlights these imperfections, which are likely scuffs to the AR coating.
Bracelet/Strap: he black alligator strap shows signs of wear with a little bit of fraying, but it is still perfectly usable and has plenty of life left.
