Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

In 1958, Jaeger-lecoul­tre cre­ated a chronome­ter for sci­en­tists and ex­plor­ers, the Geo­physic, to mark the first In­ter­na­tional Geo­phys­i­cal Year. The brand re­vived the leg­end last year with the Geo­physic 1958 and this year added two new pieces: the True Sec­ond and the Univer­sal Time. The lat­ter is al­most hyp­notic to the eye, with an en­tic­ing world map of en­graved con­ti­nents. The Cal­i­bre 772 al­lows for si­mul­ta­ne­ous read­ings of all 24 time zones, thanks to a mo­bile disc. A city disc bear­ing read­able names re­mains fixed to pro­vide users with a clear ref­er­ence point, and time is ad­justed via the crown in­stead of a ded­i­cated push-but­ton. Once the univer­sal time has been set, there is no need for read­just­ment when trav­el­ling; users sim­ply set their lo­cal time. The 41.6mm Geo­physic Univer­sal Time is avail­able in steel or pink-gold cases.
