Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Eight Days Perpetual SQ

Every time I see this watch, my eyes cannot look away, as if I am mesmerized. This watch is truly striking! I have always loved seeing a skeletonised movement through a transparent watchcase. There are similar looking timepieces by watchmakers such as Breguet and Maurice Lacroix, but this particular watch, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Eight Days Perpetual SQ, is unique. From the look to the function, it is a very creative and extremely decorative watch. It features 260 moving parts and is the only manual winding perpetual calendar watch to have an 8-day power reserve.


Each openworked movement of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Eight Days Perpetual SQ takes two months to create. It has a platinum, 42mm case with a leather double folding buckle. As stated previously, this watch features a perpetual calendar, which shows the date, month, year, and the day of the week. In addition, it displays the moon phases, a day and night indicator, and power reserve meter. Each feature has a transparent disc that rotates over a lighter-colored component, which then reveals the value. From the unmatched nature to the artisanship of this watch, this meticulously crafted work of art truly stands out from the crowd. Jaeger-LeCoultre reference: Q16164SQ
