The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Minute Repeater watch is remarkable for its advanced technical features and two breakthrough inventions implemented in it, which allowed the brand to become a leader in the production of sonorous minute repeater wristwatches. The hand-wound caliber 947, powering this watch, was developed in 2005, the same year the Antoine Master Minute Repeater, also featuring this caliber, was announced.

Jaeger-LeCoultre is a recognised master of repeater watches, having produced them since the 1890s. The development of caliber 947 was based on the manufacture’s rich experience and previous minute repeater designs, including caliber 944 of the Reverso Répétition Minutes. However, the Master Minute Repeater watch is extremely remarkable in that its movement was the first to embody two breakthrough inventions, which made the watch not only a work of haute horlogerie, but also quite suitable for daily wear. Firstly, by adding a second barrel, the power reserve is increased to 15 days – this watch can be worn without being wound for two weeks. The power reserve indicator helps the wearer not to miss the moment of the next winding, and the winding tension indicator displays whether the winding level is in the optimal range or not. The second breakthrough is the system of patented so-called ‘crystal’ gongs, recently invented by the brand and with gongs attached not to the mainplate or case, as more traditionally, but directly to the sapphire crystal. This allows the sound to transfer from the gongs with previously unattainable efficiency, making it possible for the repeater sound of the wristwatch to become highly sonorous, comparable to the sound of repeater pocket watches yet more melodious. And even the presence of a platinum case, which otherwise should effectively dampen the sound of the repeater, does not have a negative effect here.
