JLC 898

The JLC 898 is an automatic watch movement from Jaeger-LeCoultre.

Launched in 2013, Calibre 898 is a derivative of the ultra-thin Calibre 899 and closely related to Calibre 896. Unlike Cal. 896, however, Cal. 898 has no seconds subdial (or indeed any seconds display) and adds an optional day/night indicator. All three versions measure just 3.3 mm thick like Cal. 899.

There are three JLC 898 variants

  • JLC 898A (204 pieces, 30 jewels) - Night/day indicator
  • JLC 898B (202 pieces, 29 jewels) - Night/day indicator
  • JLC 898C (195 pieces, 29 jewels) - Hands only

The 898 is an automatic movement 3.30 mm thick. It runs at 28800 vph and has a power reserve of 43 hours.
