Jaeger-LeCoultre?Joaillerie 101 Etrier?, Pièce Unique.

Joaillerie 101 Etrier Offering a contemporary reinterpretation of the horizontal Etrier 101, a classic of 1930s rectangular elegance, the new Joaillerie 101 Etrier is a work of sparkling and precious originality. The refinement of the features and the placement of the winder on the back of the case are unchanged, but whereas the first Etrier was driven by the famous Duoplan move¬ment, today it beats to the rhythm of Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101. Timeless, original and available in 18-carat white gold with a satin strap, the incarnation of the Joaillerie Etrier 101 form the lines of a sparkling poem of Haute Joaillerie and horological excellence dedicated to the Eternal Woman. Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 Since 1929, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 holds the record as the smallest mechanical movement ever made. This stunning watch has never ceased to capture the hearts of women who appreciate ?la belle horlogerie?. The rarity of this masterpiece is attributable to its smallness. Made of 98 components, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 weighs hardly one gram and is just 0.2 cm3, or 14 x 4.8 x 3.4 mm in size. The winding mechanism of this watch is in-laid on the reverse side of the case. Thanks to the numerous delightful creations centered around this tiny movement, it will capture women?s hearts forever.
