A remarkable design during a transformative decade for Swiss watchmakers. Case in point, this 1970 Jaeger LeCoultre Master Quartz with a UFO style cushion case and indices of graduating sizes and an ombre of colors.
The 1960s marked the race for the best quartz caliber and Swiss watchmaking companies were definitely involved. Together, 21 of them built the Beta-21, but it was thick and large, which explains why Jaeger-LeCoultre instead turned to the caliber 352 from Girard-Perregaux. It was considered to be one of the most advanced movements although Jaeger-LeCoultre rather referred to them as modules offering an outstanding precision more than 10x better than its mechanical counterparts.As one can expect, the Master-Quartz was extremely coveted at its launch. It was also very pricey, which is reflected in the quality of its finishing and the modernistic design of its dial.
