In a long and illustrious history, Jaeger-LeCoultre has produced over 1,000 different in-house calibres, none so more impressive than its ‘Dual Wing' calibre 380A. Maintaining the pace of innovation that the brand is known for, Jaeger-LeCoultre's watchmakers recognized that the additional power required for a chronograph reduced the accuracy of the overall time.
Capitalising on their expertise in the art of micro mechanics, Jaeger-LeCoultre's solution contains two independent power reserves, one of which is solely devoted to a chronograph. By providing a clear separation of its timekeeping and time measuring functions the Duomètre provides a real advance in chronograph technology.
