Watch Review: Jaeger Le Coulture Master Control

Jaeger LeCoultre Master Control Calendar 40mm Review
JLC is one of those watch brands that stays consistent with elegance, beauty and strives for creating a timepiece that can last a lifetime. 
The Master Control collection has a variety of highly impressive watches, and some more complicated than others. We appreciate and honor the high-horology watches, and historically, JLC has put in the work on their horological creations enough times to convince me that they are certainly capable of reaching the high goals they set for themselves. However, there is a certain charm that a more classic and practical watch provides. It is essentially the same feeling you get when discovering a simple and pleasant song that makes you feel good, and you still remember it and appreciate it decades later. Stick around and read through this article to find out more on the features this watch has to offer. 
  
DIAL:
The dial of this watch has a clean appearance with a combination of applied numerals and applied index hour markers punctuated by a luminous dot. It features a finely printed minutes track and calendar days around the dial flange. A moon phase aperture is located at the 6 o’clock position and has an integrated small second’s sub-dial circled with a fine printed second’s track and features a blued steel small running seconds hand. 
   
   
CASE:
The 40mm case is 10.95mm thick. It has a polished finish on the beveled topside, lugs, and chamfered case back, and a brushed finish on the smooth curved sides of the case and sides of the lugs. The case provides up to 50m/165ft of water resistance.
   
CASE BACK:
A transparent sapphire case back showcases the beautifully finished, self-winding all mechanical movement and features a rose gold automatic winding rotor that is partially skeletonized with Jaeger LeCoultre’s perfectly symmetrical ‘JL’ emblem. The movement is decorated with Côtes de Genève (Geneva striping) and Perlage (a pattern with an overlapping circular radial brushed theme). It has gold-filled engravings indicating the thirty-four jewels used in the movement, the Jaeger LeCoultre logo, as well as other markings.
   
    
MOVEMENT:
The JLC Master Control Calendar 40mm is powered by the in-house JLC caliber 866AA that beats at 28,800 oscillations per hour. It is a 4Hz watch that contains 34 jewels and has an impressive power reserve of approximately 70 hours. The movement allows for hour minutes, small seconds, and day-date display. These functions are set using the crown and recessed pushers on the sides of the case 
STRAP:
This watch comes on a tan calf leather strap with light brown stitching and is fastened by a stainless-steel folding buckle. The clasp features an embossed logo and has a polished finish. The sides of the strap have a dark brown color and the reverse side of the strap is a light beige leather that is soft to the touch for comfortable wear.
