Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre a Quantieme Lunaire Watch
Because of the enormous amount of power required by the constant movement of the foudroyante complication, the Duometre a Quantieme Lunaire Watch has two power reserve indicators for different mainspring barrels. One is for the foudroyante, and the other is for the rest of the watch. The power reserve indicators are viewable through the skeletonized part of the dial. Proud of this in-house movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre places the movement name of "Cal. (caliber) 381" on a little plate right on the dial. This place is used to indicate the limited edition number in those pieces) The case is 42mm wide in either a limited edition of 300 pieces yellow gold model, or a standard pink gold model. The Duometre a Quantieme Lunaire Watch is indicative of a purist Jaeger-LeCoultre watch model in form and complication. Certainly a unique style of watch for serious horology fans or collectors. Price is about $35,000.
