Avatar

Ok, let's say that you are in charge of the Duomètre development, and that you have to work on the Duomètre Unique Travel Time. You are asked to make a new version of the Unique Travel Time, to be more precise. As you known there were three versions, already: The UTT started in 2013 with the Paris Boutique Edition ( 100 pieces ) Followed in 2014 by the Rose Gold version, unlimited, And in 2015 by the white gold chiseled dial ( 200 pieces ) I wouldn't touch the diameter of the case ( 42 mm ), I would just ... ...Story

When you think " Jaeger Lecoultre ", which is the first watch which comes to your mind?

Avatar
amanico
A long time ago, in the early 2000's, I read a well written article saying that for some brands, there were some cannibal watches: For example, Audemars Piguet is cannibalized by the Royal Oak, Blancpain by the Fifty Fathoms, Omega by the Speedmaster... And when it comes to Jaeger Lecoultre, by the Reverso. On this matter, I agree and disagree. Ok, if you are talking to somebody who is not passionate about watches he may give you this kind of answers...Story

Newsflash: Jaeger Lecoultre Tribute Minute Repeater. A new Reverso, a new Minute Repeater.

Avatar
amanico
A new Reverso and a new Minute Repeater? Certainly not, for two reasons: We cannot forget that in 1994, Jaeger Lecoultre issued, for the first time, a minute repeater in a Reverso, which was quite challenging, at that time, because a minute repeater needs some space to fully expresses its melody. And that was a bit the problem of this Reverso, as it was not the best sounding one. The other Reverso which is worth being mentioned is the Reverso Minute Repeater à Rideau, unveiled in 2011. Here, the sound was .....Story

An in-depth and on the wrist review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Memovox Mariner.

Avatar
amanico
As you know, the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Memovox Mariner was issued one year ago, in September 2020, more precisely. I have always been surprised by the timing issue of a diving watch by Jaeger Lecoultre. Indeed, to me, it would have been more appropriate to release the first watches at the beginning of the summer, or late spring, to offer the possibility to their owners to enjoy it in the best time of the year, and not just after summer... So, it took me ten months before receiving one, on loan, for an .....Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso Septantième: Happy 14th Anniversary!

Avatar
amanico
2007 was a rich horological year for me, as I got the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Minute Repeater in July and the Reverso Septantième in August, 2 " heavy " pieces in my collection. The Reverso Septantième was one of my targets as soon as it was announced, in 2001. It took me 6 years to find and fund it. Each time I tried it on my wrist, I was more and more convinced that it was a watch for me, despite its three " cons " which were the size of the case, the luminous hands and the retail...Story

A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso Tribute Small Seconds Green, 2021 Collection.

Avatar
amanico
As you can imagine, I was impatient to discover the 2021 edition Reverso Tribute Small Seconds, with its green dial. The wait is finally over, and I got answers to my questions, when I saw the first official pictures. The Reverso Tribute Small Seconds is a line I know quite well, since 2018, with the launch of the Blue, and 2019 with the arrival of the Burgundy. So my interrogations were not about the case dimensions, which are the same for the three watches: 45, 6 x 27, 4 x 8, 5 mm...Story

Some fresh thoughts on the Jaeger Lecoultre Amvox 2 DBS.

Avatar

Don't get me wrong, I am not discovering the Jaeger Lecoultre Amvox 2 DBS, I am rediscovering it, thanks to a friend who bought it some months ago and who had the good idea to bring it with him. No, the main purpose of this article is to re evaluate it, 14 years after its release. Indeed, when I first saw the Amvox 2 DBS in 2007, at the SIHH, my first feeling was not really positive, which leads me to a point: When you are a moderator, you have to fight against subjectivity, and let your biased feelings " ... ...Story

Some thoughts on the Jaeger Lecoultre Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire, White Gold / Black Dial.

Avatar
amanico
It has been a very long time since I saw this Duomètre in the metal, several years, for sure. I must confess that it is not my favorite version, as the one which stole my heart is the 40, 5 mm white gold version / Enamel, which I find supremely exquisite, not to say precious. Though the white gold / black dial has a lot of charm and appeal, and we'll see that in the details. First of all, I also have to say that the QL is my third favorite Duomètre...Story
