My first Jaeger-LeCoultre

Saw pics of this online and fell in love. The new Master Control Date with Sector dial from JLC. Only will be produced for one year.
Finally starting to appear in boutiques so I picked one up after calling around.
Absolutely love it. So comfy. Picked up a black strap as I can't see me wearing the blue that often.
Here's some pics. I think this is a lot of watch for the money.

Congrats, Tom. You probably know my thoughts on it already, but I hope it lives up to all your expectations.

It may not be for everyone but I love it. I like having a date complication and the placement doesn't bother me. I like that I can dress this up with the black alligator strap or dress down with a casual strap (have a Hodinkee strap on order).

Very nice - where did you get the news that it will only be produced for 12months? I hadn't heard that

It is the 25th anniversary of the Master Control. I was told by dealers and also the article below stated it would only be made for a year.

Itís a beautiful watch! Usually I like bigger sized watches (strictly nothing less then 42mm), but this one definitely is worth breaking the rule for!
