Master Control Series – Master Moon
Pictures and review by boB
Every once in awhile, a timepiece comes along that can knock even a jaded collector off his feet.
This wonderful timepiece has been my constant wrist companion for the past three weeks. Each day, my appreciation for this work of art increases. Jaeger- LeCoultre definitely did something right with the Master Control Series, Master Moonphase. Quite simply, it is one of the most breathtaking timepieces I have had the pleasure to own. Although my experience has shown it to be quite accurate (approximately -1 second a day), one doesn’t acquire this timepiece to simply measure time. This timepiece defines elegance. If one is looking for a classic timepiece for special occasions, the search is over.

It had been suggested that a lengthy technical review was in order. With respect to the Master Moon, what more is there to say? To say that I am enthralled by this timepiece is an understatement. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Although in this case, the pictures hardly do this timepiece justice. Nonetheless, take a moment to examine the attention to detail, the impeccable finish, then judge for yourself.
Only by passing the rigorous 1,000 hours of testing, does a Master Control Series timepiece receive the stamped seal of approval.
This timepiece was purchased at Feldmar,
9000 West Pico Blvd,
