The 986 Duodate will be available in two limited edition models. First is a 52mm x 31.3mm wide steel case version in 1500 pieces, and another 19k pink gold version in 500 pieces. Inside the watches is a manually-wound Jaeger-LeCoultre 986 mechanical movement. Despite having just one crown for setting the two times, Jaeger-LeCoultre assures that the process is simple and setting one time should not disturb the setting of the other time. For the traveler who likes the Reverso case types and wants two time zones in a classic package, this is a fine watch. Plus it has the benefit of being a limited edition and attractive. Otherwise it falls a bit short of feeling special or unique amongst other, potentially more interesting watches in this lineup.
