Jaeger Lecoultre Geographique watches. A good example of the Manufacture Diversity

Avatar
amanico
When the Master Géographique was unveiled in 1989, it was an original, friendly, sophisticated and beautiful watch, displaying a complication which is somewhere between the GMT and the World Time. Indeed, when you select the city you are traveling, the time zone of this city is displayed in the dedicated sub dial. Easy to use, complex to achieve. Here is the " Ketchum " Edition, in platinum, belonging to our dear friend Sandgroper...Story

A review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time ( 2017 collection ).

Avatar
amanico
After the Tribute to Geophysic unveiled in 2014, and the True Second / Universal Time in 2015, Jaeger Lecoultre came, at the beginning of the year 2017, with another member of the Geophysic Family, the Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time. Is this a bigger Geophysic Universal Time with a tourbillon? Not really. The Geophysic Universal Time on Bracelet. Compared to the Universal Time, this " Tourbillon Universal Time " ( which I will call T.U.T ) presents some huge differences...Story

I had the opportunity to attend the event organized by Jaeger-Lecoultre which took place a few days ago at the boutique. It was a spectacular event with a strong focus on engraving. A photographer was present to shoot the engraved watches of the guests. It is the reason why it was a bit mandatory for me to bring mine! Please browse the pictures I took during the event...Story

SIHH 2019: A review on the Jaeger- Lecoultre Reverso Tribute Small Seconds Boutique Edition.

Avatar
amanico
First of all, please allow me to call it Reverso Burgundy. Jaeger LeCoultre always had the bad habit to choose very long name for their watches... The Reverso Burgundy is the second chapter of the Tribute Small Seconds, which was born, last year, with a blue dial. The Reverso Burgundy has everything in common with the " Blue ", at the exception of the dial...Story

The Reverso Tribute Duoface is a superb, interesting and friendly watch. The concept is simple: The Reverso Tribute Duoface is a " two watches in one ". On one side, the classic time, Hours Minutes and Seconds. On the other side, a second time zone, for those of us who travel and who have to adapt themselves to two different time zones...Story

After the introduction of the masterpiece of the year, the Gyrotourbillon Five, at the SIHH in January, Jaeger Lecoultre comes back, 4 months after, with another big piece, the Master Grande Tradition Minute Repeater Perpetual, which I will call the " Minute Repeater Perpetual ". This new watch is an unexpected challenge. Indeed, you certainly remember what I wrote about Minute Repeaters using automatic watches. In short, I complained about the fact that the Minute Repeater was such a prestigious complication .....Story

The Master Ultra Thin Perpetual Calendar saga started not a long time ago, as the first ones came in 2013, followed in 2016 by the steel case black dialed version which is a star. We had steel versions, rose gold, white gold, all over these last years, with different dials, but this year, the Master Ultra Thin received some deep and special treatment... The Steel Silver grained dial : The Steel Black: First of all, the dial, of course, as it is the main interest of this version: The dial , like for the MUT ... ...Story

SIHH 2019: Hands on Review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon, Rose Gold.

Avatar

This year, Jaeger Lecoultre unveils two different Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon. One I already reviewed, the Enamel, which you can rediscover here: It is a 40 mm white gold case, with a guilloché blue enameled dial AND a sub dial dedicated to the date. The second Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon is in rose gold, with the same size, thinner, with a 10, 77 mm height, compared to the 12, 13 mm thickness of the white gold blue enameled version, which is due to the presence of the enamel dial. The two Master Ultra .....Story

i own one harmless & humble Reverso and honestly I've not given time enough to understand what JLC is, beyond the 'Reverso'... that ignorance was put to an end yesterday - Big thanks to the Mr Aurelien Robert from Geneva boutique ! Also thanks to the immense patience of Ms. Anne-Laure Dujardin - a full day manufacture visit along with my son wouldn't have been possible without her (plus she is extremely knowledgable to explain detailed complications - hard to find such talent in today's marketing world) . .....Story
