In this magical country of Switzerland, many excellent watchmaking brands have been bred here. As the leader of Swiss watchmaking brands, Jaeger-LeCoultre, from its birth in 1833, has gathered a large number of watchmaking craftsmanship, and is constantly advancing with the times and pursuing innovation, becoming a pivotal existence in the history of watchmaking. In 2018, Jaeger-LeCoultre added a new series-Beibei series. The Beibei series is very different from the previous Jaeger-LeCoultre watches. The shape is biased towards leisure and sports. From last year to this year, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Beibei series has gradually been accepted by everyone.
Why is Jaeger-LeCoultre launching the Beibei series?
For the Beibei series, there will inevitably be questions from tablemates. Why did Jaeger-LeCoultre launch this new series?
Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Polar Alarm Clock 1968
The prototype of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Beibei series can be traced back to the first dive watch MemovoxDeepSea with alarm function in 1959. At that time, the alarm function was to remind divers to return to the water in time. Subsequently, Jaeger-LeCoultre continued in-depth research and development on this model, and in 1968 launched the Memovox Polar Alarm Clock. In 2018, Jaeger-LeCoultre incorporated modern aesthetic features into this historical prototype model, and used it as the name of the series, which led to the Beibei series.

New Jaeger-LeCoultre calendar series limited edition
The Jaeger-LeCoultre watch series has a certain advantage in the market. At least my friends who like to watch around watched it and were very interested in Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Beibei. Take, for example, a new Beibei series watch from the Jaeger-LeCoultre just released this year, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre series calendar watch limited edition model, for example, why its advantages are so prominent.
1. Elegant and dynamic shape design
The brand new watch launched by Jaeger-LeCoultre this year has a familiar Beibei series design and also incorporates modern aesthetic features. For example, the lugs are shorter and look sharper; the bezel becomes slimmer. To reveal more dial space. Jaeger-LeCoultre draws from historical models, but it also takes into account modern people’s pursuit of aesthetics.
The dial uses a three-layer concentric circle layout, and the color of the central disk is relatively darker, so that it can be contrasted with the color of the main dial to create a layered sense. The blue color of the dial has a gradient effect, which is more obvious when viewed in the light or sunlight.
The hands and hour markers are coated with a luminous coating, which is also a kind of sports. If it is a true dress watch, generally no luminous coating is used.
2.Double crown design that can be remembered at a glance
The new limited edition of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Beibei series has a major feature-the double crown design.
The double crown design is derived from the historical model of 1968. One crown is set at 2 o’clock and the other crown is set at 4 o’clock, which forms a visual symmetry. The design of the double crown is very delicate. Compared with common rotating bezel models, one of the crowns controls the rotating inner ring, which can prevent accidental contact with the rotating bezel and improve safety.
3. Stable 899 movement
The 899 movement is one of the most commonly used movements in the Jaeger-LeCoultre junior model. Of course, it has also been completely upgraded in the new Jaeger-LeCoultre series of limited edition calendar watches. The movement is replaced by a balanceless balance spring and a single-winding device. The automatic disc is fixed by a ball bearing made of ceramic, which improves the competitiveness of the movement in terms of performance.
However, this new watch has a closed design on the case back, which can protect the movement on the one hand, and on the other hand, the case back is engraved with four special patterns-SCUBA diving emblem, Jaeger-LeCoultre seal, ‘1000HOURSCONTROL’ (1000 hours test), and ‘Limitededition—Oneof800’ (limited to 800 pieces).
This time, the Jaeger-LeCoultre series of new watches is particularly limited to 800 pieces. No matter from the historical origin, shape design, or from the value of starting, the limited edition watches of the Jaeger-LeCoultre series are well worth it.
Jaeger-LeCoultre came through the years and witnessed the changes of Swiss watchmaking. The birth of the Beibei series is a bridge for Jaeger-LeCoultre to inherit the past and open up the future. For the Beibei series of Jaeger-LeCoultre, it is not just sports watches. It has both the classic beauty of formal watches and the vitality of sports watches. Modern aesthetics were incorporated into the aesthetics, which led to the birth of the iconic work of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Beibei series.
