The venerable Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon is a tried and true legend of modern horology. It’s the quintessential combination of beautiful proportions, balance, size and finishing, exemplified by the fact that the watchmakers’ watchmaker is the name at the top of the dial.

Already available in a variety of iterations, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon now comes in a lusciously warm pink gold case with a deep blue sunray-finished dial. Everything else remains the same, albeit heightened by that super luxurious case.
