JAEGER-LECOUL­TRE

Po­laris Ge­o­graphic WT

Golf Asia - - LUXE TIMEPIECES -

The Po­laris Ge­o­graphic WT, lim­ited to 250 pieces world­wide, is in­spired by the 1968 Me­movox Po­laris watch, one of the Grande Mai­son's iconic mod­els. The 42mm case houses the Cal­i­bre 936A/1, a me­chan­i­cal self-wind­ing Jaeger-lecoul­tre cal­i­bre bring­ing a new fea­ture to the col­lec­tion. The Po­laris Ge­o­graphic WT (for "World Time") watch in­vites us to dis­cover the world through the 24 time zones in­stantly vis­i­ble on a flange, which can be ad­justed by the crown at 10 o'clock. For ci­ties switch­ing be­tween stan­dard and day­light sav­ing time ac­cord­ing to sea­sons, a white as­ter­isk in­di­cates the time with this one-hour dif­fer­ence. The dial is dec­o­rated with three fin­ishes, an opa­line base for the city disk, a sun­rayed sub-dial hous­ing the cal­en­dar at 2 o'clock, the sec­ond time zone at 6 o'clock and the power re­serve at 10 o'clock, and a grained fin­ish­ing for the case back.
