With Jaeger-LeCoultre Certificate dated 25 February 2014 confirming that the present watch is set with 118 diamonds weighing 8.00 carats, loupe, instruction manual, fitted presentation box and outer packaging.

At the heart of a fascinating collaboration between engineering and design, is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication with a Calibre 945. This watch contains an astonishing 527 parts and features three extraordinary complications: sky chart indicator, flying tourbillon and a minute repeater.
By combining the sky chart indicator with an engine-turned dial and a flying tourbillon, the watch has successfully transformed itself into a mobile astronomical chart that can be used to indicate date, the zodiac calendar and demonstrates the relationship between the sun, the stars and the earth.
Another amazing feature that this watch has is hidden in the minute repeater. The minute repeating mechanism in this watch is equipped with a "trebuchet hammers" and a patented "crystal cathedral gongs." The gong has it heels directly attached to the sapphire crystal case; this allows the vibrations to be transmitted outward. In another word speaking, this will ensure the sound of the striking gongs to be louder and clearer.
The Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication is truly an example of pinnacle watch making. "Trophy watches" such as this are hard to come by and should be enthusiastically greeted by any discerning collector wanting to acquire this prestigious model.

Furthermore, the present watch is in "like new" condition.
