Each dial has three cir­cles with con­trast­ing fin­ishes, large lu­mi­nous hands, and in­dexes that have the trape­zoidal shape of the orig­i­nal Po­laris.

e Po­laris Au­to­matic has a three-hand time dis­play and a 41-mm stain­less-steel case. In­side is JLC’S au­to­matic 896/1 with a 40-hour power re­serve. e di­als are black or “ocean” blue. Prices are $6,600 to $7,600. e Po­laris Chrono­graph has a 42-mm case. It uses in-house Cal­iber 751 with a 65-hour power re­serve. Prices in steel are $10,000 to $10,900. e Po­laris Chrono­graph WT has a crown at 10 that con­trols a ro­tat­ing city disk rep­re­sent­ing the world’s 24 ma­jor time zones. e move­ment is au­to­matic JLC Cal­iber 752 with a 65-hour power re­serve. Price is $14,500 with a ti­ta­nium case and a calf leather strap. e Po­laris Date has in­dexes treated to look like the tri­tium-treated ones of the early Po­laris. e 42-mm case is stain­less steel.

It has a 44-hour power re­serve, a 42-mm steel case, and is wa­ter re­sis­tant to 200 me­ters. Like the Po­laris Date, it has “aged patina” lu­mi­nous in­dexes.
