Conceived and created respectively by the master watchmakers Roger Guignard and Gabriel Locatelli, the newest Duoface indicates, on two opposite dials, the time of two time zones using a unique movement patented by Jaeger LeCoultre. The number of components is reduced to a minimum, which reduces the play of the gears and the loss of energy.
