Swiss watch brand Jaeger-LeCoultre — along with Mr. Porter — launches a new limited-edition watch: the Master Ultra Thin Kingsman Knife watch that has been specially adapted for the upcoming Kingsman origins film, The King’s Man, directed by Matthew Vaughn. Just 100 pieces will be made — all offered exclusively on Mr. Porter from today until September 6. After that, if there are any watches left, they will be available from Jaeger-LeCoultre on line. But don’t count on any being left.
The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Kingsman Knife watch is one of the most elegant and alluring ultra-thin watches currently on the market. It deftly brings together past and present for a spell-binding appeal thanks to the clean lines, the sophisticated dial, the incredible thinness and the triangular crown accent — all inspired from a piece made by the brand more than 100 years ago.
The new movie links the past and the present — exploring 100 years back to the origins of the Kingsman agency. As such, Jaeger-LeCoultre reverted to it archives and its long experience in creating ultra-thin calibers. The new watch is directly inspired by the 1907 ‘Couteau’ (couteau is French for knife) pocket watch, but is brilliantly contemporary in looks.

The design of the new Master Ultra Thin Kingsman Knife watch reflects Jaeger-LeCoultre’s historical pocket watches thanks to the bezel slopes, stepped case, and the fine profile that recalls knife blade. The winding crown is protected by a triangular bow at 12:00. Contemporary codes are added in the form of simple index hour markers and a circular chapter ring that bring the design into modernity.
