Following a vote held at the Munichtime and Viennatime watch exhibitions, Jaeger-LeCoultre has been awarded the Public Prize as the Watch of the Year in the 'Complicated Watches' category for its Duomètre Sphérotourbillon.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Sphérotourbillon is the first tourbillon watch with precision adjustment. Jaeger-LeCoultre CEO Jerome Lambert received the award at a ceremony held in Vienna on 11th December 2012.
Over 10,000 visitors to Viennatime and 11,000 visitors to Munichtime were able to vote for the Public Prize. A Jaeger-LeCoultre master watchmaker presented a number of complications to the guests at both exhibitions, including the Duomètre and Rendez-Vous lines.
The Duomètre Sphérotourbillon is equipped with a multi-axis tourbillon, enabling it to defy the effects of gravity in all positions. It is the first tourbillon that is adjustable to the second, due to the Jaeger-LeCoultre Dual-Wing concept. The small seconds can be reset with a push-piece, according to the flyback principle. The flyback does not stop the function of the regulating organ, so the small seconds hand immediately continues once reset.
