World of Watches (Singapore) - - Reports - Hori­zon, David­off

Jaeger-lecoul­tre’s 58-year-old Geophysic may have de­vi­ated a lit­tle from its sci­en­tific roots, but it has main­tained its clas­sic al­lure in sub­se­quent rere­leases. The Geophysic True Se­cond is no ex­cep­tion, though its no-frills de­sign hides an in­ter­est­ing com­pli­ca­tion: dead sec­onds. Through clever en­gi­neer­ing, such watches have se­cond hands that tick in­stead of sweep, al­low­ing the wearer to pre­cisely read, mea­sure or syn­chro­nise time with an­other tim­ing de­vice.
