Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 Watch Review

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 is now available with a striking accent of blue. 


The addition to the series replaces the injection of red with a vivid blue colour and has undergone a few alterations since the original watch launched back in 2010. The Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 is designed for the adventurers and explorers amongst us. The form and function of the complex timepiece allows for spirited individuals to rely on their watch whilst investigating the outdoors. To survive extreme environments the timekeeper has a titanium alloy case and a robust mechanical chronograph movement. Other useful features include an open worked dial, a patented digital counter to indicate the chronograph jumping seconds, a manual stop seconds device and a patented power-reserve indication. The GMT function allows for the second time zone (displaying the time in the wearer’s usual location) to be demonstrated by a second central hours hand with a 24-hour counter at 6 o’clock. To adjust the time zone the crown integrated function selector is used, which can drive the date in both forward or backward directions. Positioned at 12 o’clock is the large double-digit counter, which presents the chronograph minutes and situated at 9 o’clock is the chronograph hours totaliser. 


The new vivid blue colour highlights specific functions such as the second hand, the hours totaliser and the top stitching of the alligator leather strap to give the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 a new identity in the watch industry. A new shade may appeal to a wider audience with a preference for a blue aesthetic. In addition, the smooth ceramic bezel replaces the previous ridged variant and a double pin buckle allows the length of the strap to be adjusted to strive towards a better fit.
