The Watch Quote™ - April 3rd, 2013
“The Host” is a science fiction movie, adapted from a novel penned by the author of the ‘Twilight’ series, Stephenie Meyer. Diane Kruger plays one of the main character : Terra, The Seeker.
Since 1929, Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 has held the world record of the smallest mechanical movement, consisting of 98 tiny parts totalling barely one gram.
For over 80 years, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 has remained the world’s smallest mechanical movement. This prodigious feat of miniaturization has equipped the most exclusive watches, starting with the one worn by Queen Elizabeth II of England on her Coronation Day in 1953. The dial of the Joaillerie 101 watch is so small that time almost seems to vanish into the background so as to give pride of place to the diamonds surrounding it. Created by the skillful hands of the world’s finest watchmakers, each Joaillerie 101 watch embodies absolute exclusivity and elegance.
Ever since the 16th century, ladies’ watches have delighted in reinventing the rules of the game of seduction: exploring the full spectrum from invisible to dazzling and from concealment to revealment, while engaged in a perpetual quest to strike the perfect balance between beauty, refinement and telling the time. Jaeger-LeCoultre has enriched this tradition by creating “secret” watches with covers, as well as swiveling and pivoting models, rings and pendants, covering a range of styles stretching from the purity of Art Deco to the most expressive floral motifs. Radiating ultimate aesthetic appeal and supreme elegance, these creations unite the twin arts of exceptional watchmaking and fine jewellery. Such masterpieces could only be created in the workshops of the Manufacture that so fully masters the subtle intricacies of mechanical perfection and the most exquisitely delicate gem-setting techniques.
