Effective sports chronograph—Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2
Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced the initial Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 5 years ago, throughout the SIHH 2010. Soon after 2010 SIHH (Salon Worldwide p la Haute Horlogerie) they introduced a rather remodeled version with blue hints. It’s still probably the most technical sports chronographs available on the market also it leaves most of the ‘design’ sports chronographs far behind, if this involves robustness, functionality and practical use. Today we go hands-up with the brand new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2, an effective sports chronograph.
The standard chronograph pushers are covered and guarded by two L-formed metal levers that pivot round the crown. These levers give a bigger contact area and simultaneously, they function as a crown protector. Top of the top of the push-piece is covered with rubber grooves to make sure a non-slip grip. Just the one thing that is available in very handy for any proper sports watch!
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 has again zone indicator, or GMT function. This indicator is supposed to display the house time, and achieves this with a second central hour hands as well as an additional 24-hour hands at 6 o’clock. The moment counter is based on an immediate-jump mechanism, that is triggered in the exact moment once the seconds hands completes one full turn. The chronograph hrs totaliser is situated at 9 o’clock, coaxially using the running seconds.
The situation is not even close to the regular round situation, and comprises an inner situation that houses the movement, as well as an exterior ‘carrier’ that can serve as strap attachment so that as base for that inner situation. This technique combines robustness and lightness because of TiVan15, a titanium and vanadium alloy supplying 15% greater traction resistance than traditional titanium alloys. The interior situation includes a black ceramic bezel not to mention a (scratch-resistant) azure very. The crown, also made from ceramic, echoes the particularly elegant bezel using its polished and satin-blown finish.
The strap can be simply transformed, by way of a brand new integrated interchangeable strap system that is run by a lever around the case back. The strap has alligator leather on sides, which guarantees a much better sturdiness and luxury. The buckle includes a secure double pin that guarantees an exact two-position adjustment in between each notch. Altogether the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 looks awesome, looks very technical and packs lots of intriguing and helpful features. Despite its large dimensions (near to 47mm across), it wears very remarkably comfortable and doesn’t feel to large, nor overweight. A thoroughbred sports watch, functional, and dare we are saying it, a modern day tool watch.
