As announced, this year won't be the year of the Duometre. We'll have to wait till 2020, most probably, to see something new in this line dear to many of us. Still, there are some offers, this year, which are worth some serious consideration. I will arrive at the SIHH on Tuesday late afternoon, so the first live pictures will come on Wednesday morning...Story

Box Play: LeCoultre Reference 3072

Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
New year, same game – Box Play! This time it is the LeCoultre Memovox reference 3072. As far as I can remember, the 3072 were only made for the North America market. An odd-looking bird with oval case, cupola crowns, diamond shaped hands and rectangular marker on the seconds hand! Together with all these different shapes you have the round alarm disk and indexes. The different sized indexes are polished with a brush pattern and not angled in the same horizontal which gives a very strange perception of them .....Story

Jaeger-Lecoultre Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface. Some real pictures and thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
When the Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface was unveiled, in the first days of September, I couldn't see it, and I had to do with press pictures, to write a quick review on it. Here is the link to this review: So, two weeks ago, I asked the Manufacture to let me see this new Reverso in the metal. The first impressions were positive, even though I am far from being a strong fan of Tourbillons which make a hole in the dial. I much prefer when they are part of the dial / movement, such as the Reverso Platinum .....Story

1961 – 2012 Three Generations of Accuracy

Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
Friends, We often talk about the complicated or the sports... But I would like to put a light on some of the core criterions of a modern wrist watch: Time, Date, Automatic, Water resistant, Shock resistant and Accuracy. This is what a big part of the watch buying customers wants. Yes, is this order, at least if you look at most of the big Manufactures and their main part of watch production each year...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Duometre à Chronographe White Gold, Black Dial: 2d Anniversary.

Avatar
amanico
If you follow me, you know that there is a big love affair between myself and the Duometre à Chronographe. A love affair which started as soon as the Duometre was unveiled, in 2007, and which was compromised after a sad event in January 2011. But in December 2016, I could solve that painful issue and get another Duometre, to replace my platinum version, a white gold black dial. It's been two years, now, that I own this black beauty...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Géographique World Time, the review.

Avatar
amanico
Unveiled in April 2018, three months after the other members of the Polaris family, the Polaris Géographique World Time is, in my opinion, one of the most tempting offer from this line of watches. It took me several months to be able to see it in the real, and I must say that this experience confirmed my first positive impressions. In January 2018, I had two favorite Polaris: The 50th Anniversary, and the Chronograph World Time. Now, I am in trouble, as the Polaris Géographique is extremely tempting...Story

Jaeger Lecoultre Duometre à Chronographe / Quantième Lunaire / Spherotourbillon Rose Gold, Magnetite Grey dial. The Swan Song?

Avatar
amanico
In 2017, Jaeger Lecoutlre surprised us with the unveiling of three Duometres, the Chronographe, the Quantième Lunaire and the Spherotourbillon in rose gold with a magnetite grey dial, all having a 42 mm diameter. If the Spherotourbillon has a traditional opening for the... tourbillon, the Manufacture opted for the two apertures on the Chronographe and the Quantième Lunaire, when I would have preferred a plain dial. One thing is really magnificent, the combination of the rose gold case and this grey dial, .....Story

The icon of personalization, the Reverso

Avatar
foversta
I have mentioned it many times: personalization is one of the favorite themes of today's customers. A watch brand must now be able to integrate into its collection variable aesthetic elements that adapt to the tastes and demands of these customers. Small brands have understood this for several years: watches are generally available in a wide variety of dial and strap colours. Established brands have had much more difficulty in entering into this process...Story

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Where the unusual is commonplace – revisited (again)

Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
From the Jaeger-LeCoultre 125 Year Jubilé 1958: In 2011 I posted this ad: English – “ Where the unusual is commonplace”… In 2016 I posted this ad: Spanish – “Los altos lugares de la alta precisión”… …and said that “if I ever find this ad in a third language I might pass”… Yeah right, we all know that would never happen! So now, 2018 I post this ad: German – “Ein Hochland der Präzision”… One interesting detail here is that the watches are not drawn as on the other two, but actual photos of the watches. So ... ...Story

Revisiting all the History of JLC Diving watches is a passionate Dive into the Beauty. Even if I'm a Polaris Lover, there is not only the Polaris to consider, as some other very interesting watches existed, before and after this Cult Watch. For those interested by the Polaris, I will brievely speak of it, here, as I did a Review you can read here: The main purpose of this post is to : 1/ Give some justice to these models which lived and still live in the shadow of the Polaris. 2/ To enhance the fact that .....Story
