Jaeger-LeCoultre's Latest Watch To Outshine The Stars At The Venice Film Festival


Jaeger-LeCoultre has been the main sponsor of the Venice International Film Festival for over a decade. The purpose of which is to pay respects to the talented personalities who have made indelible contributions to modern cinema.

In 2019, la Grande Maison brings the significance of a starry night sky down to the more earthbound constellations walking the red carpet of the Mostra. The latest edition of the Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Céleste will be presented at the 76th edition of the oldest film festival in the world, which is scheduled to run from 28 August to 7 September of this year.

Masterful films can redefine our experiences, elevating life to art. In line with this approach, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Céleste features a different perspective on time itself, with an orbital flying tourbillon that makes a complete turn of the dial over the course of 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4 seconds. This unusual time unit is the length of one sidereal day, calculated with reference to the more distant stars instead of the Sun.

In both mechanism and design, the Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Céleste takes us beyond the everyday. It is a rare timepiece that manages to capture the rhythms of daily life in parallel with the cryptic, yet beautiful movements of the universe.
