Jaeger-LeCoultre Presents The Most Complex Watch In The World 

Jaeger-LeCoultreDescribed by industry experts as the most complicated watch ever created, the Hybris Mechanic Grande Sonnerie by Jaeger-LeCoultre is a masterpiece in the watchmaking art. Founded in 1833 Jaeger-LeCoultre is well known for constantly pushing the boundaries of watchmaking whilst seeking to preserve their fine watchmaking heritage.

The creation of a musical watch is considered the Mount Everest of watchmaking due to the complexity of building a miniature musical instrument inside a time piece. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Hybris Mechanica Grande Sonnerie provides an audible indication of the time with full Westminster Chimes and plays the longest melody ever chimed by a striking timepiece, but also houses a perpetual calendar and a flying tourbillon within the classic case of the Duomètre line.




The Hybris Mechanica Grande Sonnerie has 1,406 parts all housed in a 44mm white gold case confirm that Jaeger-LeCoultre have created something truly amazing. The case of the watch is the most conservative element of the watch, it is very understated and partially hides the complexities within. Half the face is skeletal which gives you a glimpse of the moving parts that work to drive the 182 calibre movement.

The time and skill needed to create this watch are unbelievable and the Hybris Mechanica Grande Sonnerie is sure to be the crowning jewel of any connoisseurs collection.
