I have always admired the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Reserve de Marche. I think it’s one of the finest watches with sophistication, refinement and timeless elegance that has remained in the core Jaeger-LeCoultre collection for many years.
This past Sunday, February 16, at the 2014 BAFTA Awards, Actor Chiwetel Ejiofor was the recipient of Leading Actor award for his role in 12 Years a Slave directed by Steve McQueen. His timepiece of choice was the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin in 18k pink gold which he also wore at this past 2014 SAG Awards. The British actor dedicated his award to director Steve McQueen. 12 Years a Slave also won best Film at the 2014 BAFTA Awards.
Congratulations to Chiwetel Ejiofor for his achievement and his impeccable taste in choosing The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Reserve in 18k pink gold.
I love the simplicity and art deco elements of this watch. From the eggshell beige dial with 18k pink gold gilt hour markers and dauphine hands, to the 43 hour power reserve indicator, date subdial and sub-seconds hand all with contrasting steel blue hands. The 39 mm case size is a great size for a dress watch and the ultra thin profile gives it that extra bit of class and subtle yet functional wearability.
