Lot Essay

The Master Grand Tourbillon Enamel model is equipped with Jaeger-LeCoultre calibre 978 and features a one minute tourbillon. This calibre won the first prize at the International Timing Competition organised by the Watch Museum of Le Locle, Switzerland in 2009.

The enamel dial depicts a finely crafted red-crowned crane. The crane is a symbol of longevity and immortality, and is believed by some to have the power to absorb evil vapors, safe-guarding those who carry them. Their long legs are described as resonating with the harmonies of nature and Heaven. It is considered one of the more important motifs in Chinese mythology and often appears in Chinese paintings and works of art.
