Following the launch of the all-new Polaris, sports watch collection at Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2018 in January, this month Jaeger-LeCoultre announced a limited edition model called the Polaris Geographic WT.
With a design inspired by the lines of the Memovox Polaris timepiece, which was released in 1968, the Polaris Geographic WT easily meshes with the iconic style associated with Jaeger-LeCoultre. Presented in a 42 mm x 11.54 mm stainless steel case, with a gorgeous smoky blue gradient dial, the new World Time watch is powered by caliber 936A/1 which can display 24 time zones simultaneously using the outer chapter ring.
Waterproof up to a depth of 100 meters. Additionally, the watch usefully displays switches that can be used between standard time and daylight saving time, and there is white mark consisting of an asterisk which shows the difference.
As you can see through the clear caseback, the movement is automatic with a smoked and skeletonized oscillating weight with Geneva striping. The main bridges are also decorated with Geneva stripes. The mainplate has a perlage finish. In total caliber, 936A/1, which beats at 4Hz, has 305 components, 34 of which are jewels.
Jaeger-LeCoultre will be offering 250 pieces of the timepiece and these will be available through the boutiques operated by the company.
