Every four years, an extra day is added to the end of February, known as a leap year day.2016 is a leap year and can rightfully honor perpetual calendar timepieces that will take into account the unequal length of months with 28, 30 or 31 days and will naturally display the 29th of February, without any manual adjustment.
While the Awards Season has been in full swing, the Oscars could not have been a better evening to celebrate this emblematic complication on the red carpet:
Actor Steve Carell sported the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Perpetual at the 88th Academy Awards Ceremony, on February 28th.
This is the perfect watch for Steve Carell. Like him the watch exudes simple but sophisticated elegance and is very understated.
