The Oscars ceremony may have descended into farce when the wrong winner of the Best Film was read out, but Jaeger-LeCoultre’s enthusiasm will not be dampened by La La Land having the biggest gong of the night snatched away.
The Richemont brand is celebrating La La Land director Damien Chazelle’s victory as he collected his Best Director Oscar at the 89th Academy Awards wearing a pink gold Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Ultra Thin Small Second.
It isn’t the first time Mr Chazelle has been seen wearing Jaeger-LeCoultre timepieces. He wore his Master Ultra Thin Moon to the Venice International Film Festival to launch La La Land, and has worn other models on red carpet photo calls ahead of premieres for the movie around the world.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Ultra Thin Small Second is a classic dress watch that pairs perfectly with a classic tuxedo.
The 40mm automatic watch in rose gold has gold dauphine hands and hour-markers that mirror each other.
