Calibre 929 is an automatic watch movement from Jaeger-LeCoultre.

Based on the popular and thin Calibre 889/1, Calibre 929/3 was introduced in 1996 and phased out in 2004 in favor of Calibre 936/937 and ultimately Calibre 939. It adds a power reserve indicator and dual timezone complication. It is a 28,800 A/h movement, 26 mm in diameter, and measuring 4.85 mm high. Calibre 929 has 36 jewels and 293 components. A 38 hour power reserve is short by today's standards but was competitive for a thin movement in the 1990's.
