Jaeger Lecoultre Geographique. An interesting diversity.

Avatar
amanico
The Master Géographique is the first Jaeger Lecoultre which intrigued me. I discovered it in the early 90's when it was issued. Here is the first generation, a special one in platinum, belonging to our dear Sandgroper: Followed by a second generation in the second half of the 90's, in steel, gold and also in platinum, limited to 250 pieces, with a superb hunter case back: Then we had the Reverso Geographique, in rose gold only, limited to 500 pieces, another eye candy, which has the good taste to display ... ...Story

Avatar

It didn't take long before I could finally see the Reverso Tribute Duoface Rose Gold Burgundy Fagliano Limited Edition! When I went to the Paris Boutique, I had some questions in mind, not about the size, as it is the same than the Tribute Duoface Blue Fagliano unveiled in 2019, so I know it well, but about the true hue of burgundy and the strap... And, of course, the overall feeling this watch provides, which can be confirmed with an experience in real life, only. Among all the Tribute Duoface, my favorite ... ...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Duomètre à Chronographe: 4th Anniversary.

Avatar
amanico
If there is a watch which is among my favorite, with the " keeper " status, the Jaeger Lecoultre Duomètre à Chronographe certainly is one of them, one of the ten watches, all brands included, which will probably stay with me forever. The Duometre is a special watch which had a lot of wrist time, during this special year. That was my " lockdown " watch, with a few other Jaeger Lecoultre, just to keep in touch with the world, with Passion, with horology and fine horology, in a time you are necessarily centered ... ...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface Fagliano Rose Gold Burgundy. 2020 Novelty.

Avatar
amanico
A new watch? Not really, but a nice iteration of the Reverso Tribute Duoface, in rose gold and with a sublime Burgundy dial. Here, you will find the slider which is dedicated to the setting of the second time zone, hidden on the side of the case, at 6 o' clock. The combination of a rose gold case and the burgundy dial is sublime, in my opinion. The applied indices are golden, the red lacquer is very deep...Story

In the Hybris Artistica line, born in 2014, there were three Duometre Spherotourbillon. A White Gold Sapphire case, limited to three pieces, a White Gold Blue Enamel, and a White Gold Blue Enamel pocket watch! This is this last one I invite you to rediscover, here. First, let me share a sketch of this watch, which is a good description: And another one, even more artistic: This is the first and the unique Duometre to be used in a pocket watch. The case is big, with a diameter of 48 mm, but since it is a pocket .....Story

A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Geophysic DeLuxe Reference 2985.

Avatar
amanico
Collecting watches and trying to learn more about them leads you to Modesty. Indeed, it can take one or two decades to learn everything about a watch, a reference. The Jaeger Lecoultre Geophysic is one of them, certainly. The most famous reference is the E 168, and it is a perfect example of what I formerly said...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication 2020 Edition. Some thoughts and real pictures.

Avatar
amanico
I wrote an article on the Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication 2020 Edition, some months ago. Here is the link to the thread: I was impatient to see it in the real life, to judge the benefits of the new case and the sound of this watch. Without surprise, the sound is as good as the former models, rich and powerful, which is a true challenge. I consider the 2015 Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication edition as one of the best sounding Minute Repeater I've ever heard, and this 2020 version is .....Story

First thought on the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Mariner Date and Mariner Memovox.

Avatar
amanico
Jaeger Lecoultre comes back to the Polaris with two new models, the Polaris Mariner Date and the Polaris Mariner Memovox. Polaris, Mariner, two names which have their roots in Jaeger Lecoultre rich history. If you know the Polaris by heart, as it is one of the most popular watch from the Manufacture, the Mariner belongs to a family, the Master Mariner, born in the late Fifties and which gave birth to a model which is appreciated by the Jaeger Lecoultre fans, the Master Mariner Deep Sea. You could also think .....Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Control Calendar and Chronograph Calendar in Steel. Some real pictures and thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
This year, Jaeger Lecoultre had the good idea to revisit the Master Control collection, and started with the Date, the Calendar, the Chronograph Calendar, the Geographique and the Memovox. So, now, the Master Control watches have a new case, a redesigned dial and for some of them, an improved movement. After having reviewed the Memovox and the Memovox Timer, let's now focus our attention on two of them, the steel versions of the Master Control Calendar and the Master Chronograph Calendar . 1/ MASTER CONTROL .....Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Cal 101 and 849: 2 great movements from La Grande Maison.

Avatar
amanico
Of course we could mention many great movements from Jaeger Lecoultre. They made,since 1833, more than 2000 movements, so the list can be endless, such as the Cal 889, the 38x from the Duometre line, the Gyrotourbillons, and, of course, the vintage calibres such as those of the Geophysic, Futurematic, the Memovox... Here, I would just show two of them, one which is the thinnest, the Cal 849, and the smallest, the cal 101. Being the smallest and the thinnest movement is a true technical and horological defy, .....Story
