Jaeger LeCoultre brand launched its beautiful Hybris Mechanica Grand Sonnerie , one of the world’s most complexed watches.
The Hybris Mechanica Grand Sonnerie is currently one of the world’s most complicated watches. Last year, Franck Muller took the title with its 25-complication Aeternitas Mega 4, and then when they heard about the Grand Sonnerie with 26, Muller decided, all of a sudden, that theirs would have 36 complications despite the fact the watch was already in production .
Nestled in the heart of the Vallée des Joux since 1833, the Jaeger LeCoultre company houses over 180 skills deemed necessary for building the most amazing watches in the world. There is tradition in excellence for sure. To us, this Jaeger Collection is one of the few hyper-complex watches that, after all the engineering, all the toiling, and all the hype, is still compelling. Part of that has to to do with JLC’s history as a true watchmaker’s watch brand. Think about where you see Jaeger movements and you’ll see what we mean; think original Patek Nautilus, AP Royal Oak and Vacheron Overseas. Jaeger movements are some of the best in the world.
Now, for the $2.5miilon price tag of Grand Sonnerie, the 30 buyers of this watch also receive a Gyrotourbillon and the Reverso a Tryptique, along with a 2,600 pound Doettling safe. The entire package is entitled the Hybris Mechanica 55, for the combined 55 complications among the three timepieces. Really not a bad deal, when you think about it.
