Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
We started to look into boxes for the Funky 70’s Memovox, but I thought it would be fun to take a detour and take a look at some 1940’s boxes… Let’s have a look at the reference E 109 (left) and the E 159 (right): Two watches sharing the same case, but with different movements inside. The E 109 sub-second, Calibre P469/A and the E 159 central second, Calibre P478. Yes, similar movements that are related to some more famous watches… The British W.W.W with the sub-second movement Calibre 479, central second, ... ...Story

Jerome Lambert left the Jaeger Lecoultre Manufacture in May 2013. Since his departure, there are some watches which were unveiled and which make me dream. Let's see which one, chronologically: 2014: The Duometre Quantième Lunaire White Gold Enamel. This one is a priority, just after another Duometre unveiled during Jerome Lambert's reign, the Unique Travel Time...Story

Jaeger-Lecoultre Master Minute Repeater Titanium: Time to celebrate its 11th birthday.

Avatar
amanico
Unveiled in 2006, it took me 1 year and a half to find a solution to get it, which I achieved to do on the 31th of July 2007. A quick trip in Belgium, to pick it, and a total excitement since the first minute. I don't count the times I played with the minute repeater, the hours I spent admiring the details of the dial. Sometimes, I had to refrain, because the family and friends wondered why I spent so much time looking at the dial.....Story

A Review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Hybris Artistica Mysterieuse for Men ( SIHH 2017 ).

When I saw the Hybris Artistica Mystérieuses for ladies and men, at the Jaeger Lecoultre Booth during the 2017 SIHH, I couldn't handle it and take some pictures of these watches, so it was tough for me to write a review on these watches without having a closer look at them. During my visit at the Jaeger Lecoultre Booth, this year, I asked to see the " Mystérieuse " in the metal and the permission to take some pictures. Hybris Artistica... This name sounds magic, since the Manufacture unveiled the whole collection .....Story

The Manufacture gave the conception of these Reverso to the Rare Métiers workshop, as their purpose is not to house a complication, but to use some classic technics such as guilloché and enamel for both the recto and the verso dial. On the Recto dial, ... ...Story

It was in 2007 when Jaeger Lecoultre decided to unveil their modern diving watch, the Master Compressor Diving GMT. Modern, it can be called so, as this watch was conform to the norms in that matter ( ISO 6425 ): - Protection against inadvertent rotation for the bezel. - Indication that the watch is running. - Water Resistance with a minimum of 100 meters...Story

blomman Mr Blue
Let’s start small, with the Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox E 871. Since I finally got the last detail sorted on my E 871, I thought it would be appropriate to start with this one. You may read about it here: We who grow up during the 1970’s will always have a soft spot for these old TV shaped watches… Growing up in Sweden, there were only two TV channels and only one serious sports program, “Sportspegeln”. The blur thing to the right was their show logo… We have seen it from many members here, posting big, bulky, .....Story

SIHH 2018: A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Chronograph World Time.

Avatar
amanico
In the modern production, there are not so many chronographs which also are world time. Girard Perregaux comes to mind, as soon as the very early 2000's, Patek, last year, with the 5930G, and, last but not least, Jaeger Lecoultre, with the Extreme World Compressor, in the mid 2000's. Girard Perregaux WWW TC: Patek 5930G: The Extreme World Compressor has been discontinued for some time, now, and Jaeger Lecoultre comes back with the same combination of complications, but this time, with the all new Polaris ... ...Story
