We found a absolute beautiful case from Replica Jaeger-LeCoultre Tourbillon at SIHH 2016. It's not very often that you see both a flying tourbillon and a perpetual calendar in one replica watch, let alone one powered by an automatic movement. The complex nature of this replica horological piece from Jaeger-LeCoultre is amazingly matched by an equally complex name. Feast your eyes on the replica Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique a Quantieme Perpetuel offered in 18k pink gold for 2014. It was originally released as a limited edition in platinum for 2013. Now listen, I don't want to type that name again and you're probably at work and not on your lunch break so let's all respect what this is and just call it the Cylindrique Perpetuel.
This tourbillon is Jaeger-LeCoultre's complicated watchmaking at its finest. Based on a 42 by 13.1 mm platform in 18k pink gold with a silver toned dial, display case back, and a gorgeous layout that balances a flying tourbillon as well as a perpetual calendar display spread across three sub dials. The replcia case is finished with its lugs and bezel polished and its flanks in satin.
The Cylindrique Perpetuel certainly is a beautiful one wtith the automatic calibre 985, the Cylindrique Perpetuel is comprised of 431 parts which support the 48 hour power reserve and a frequency of 28,800 vph. With hours, minutes, seconds (via the tourbillon), as well as day, date, month, year and moon phase (within the date sub dial at three), complexity is the name of the game, even before we get to the tourbillon details.
With a titanium carriage, 14-carat balance and a cylindrical balance spring, this replica flying tourbillon looks as though it's floating in place at the six position on the dial. With the combination of the tourbillon and their perpetual calendar technology, Jaeger-LeCoultre claims that the Cylindrique Perpetuel is the world's most accurate perpetual calendar. The faker Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique a Quantieme Perpetuel (copy and paste) will come fitted to a brown alligator leather strap with a matched pink gold buckle. Regardless of its complexity or technological prowess, the aesthetic is distinctly that of traditional haute-horology and Jaeger-LeCoultre has a long standing presence in that space and the fake Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique a Quantieme Perpetuel is further evidence of how they earned their place among watchmaking's finest.
