Vintage Ads: The Series – Part #12 The Polaris / Concord ad – 1969 Class Reunion

 By: blomman Mr Blue : May 19th, 2013-11:59
Hello Vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre Lovers, Of all Jaeger-LeCoultre ads I think there is one we all know: The Polaris / Concord ad from 1969. Three years ago I made this photo: The ad is a printout from a scan. The Polaris is the TT Polaris. Close, but no ciga...  

Wow ! .. What a post., something to digest, enjoy and reflect about ! :))

 By: hs111 : May 19th, 2013-12:16
Just some quick line: I truly enjoyed this one, and a lot indeed ! And the original ad is a true cherry on this cake; Amazing for sure - I enjoy your quest for perfection, my friend .. - one Q if allowed: in which newspaper did this ad occur ? To just bri... 

Sorry to say...

I don't know which paper the ad comes from - found it on a auction site, single page only. Thank you, dear friend! I know you are working this theme as well... Maybe you will show us your version of the Concorde ad one day..? :) Best Blomman

If I judge by the background of the photos...

picturing your father's metal (craft)ship, you still have snow on the ground? You must have had a great snowy winter. Regards, Yves

Winter was not great... But, yes a lot of snow!

To be honest - the pics are a couple of month old... I had all the components ready for this post for a long time. Just lacked the time to put it together. Best Blomman

This is something I had in mind, some years ago.

To be able to gather the 3 Refs of the Concorde advertising, which must be the most famous ad in the JLC Vintage world. And when you got your E 859, I immediately thought: " He will do it ". You did it, indeed! ;) Superb post, my friend. I can imagine how... 

How could I resist..?! ;)

 By: blomman Mr Blue : May 20th, 2013-00:16
We both know that this day would come, my friend! You know me well - a oppertunity like this is too good for me to pass! :) Yes, this is a trio that makes me very happy. Soon I will show you this Polaris in the metal and you will understand my joy! Best, ... 

Can't wait for that moment. you know how much I love them.

 By: amanico : May 20th, 2013-00:39
We'll organise a photo session, my friend. And it seems that it will be soon. Best, Nicolass.

Yes! :) [nt]

I believe that there is a Concorde being restored in the Musée de l'air et de l'espace at Le Bourget airport in Paris. You should see if it's there and take a pic with the advert and the trio of JLCs! -MW

re: RCDG or Bourget

 By: DRMW : May 19th, 2013-15:37
Hopefully you can find out for blomman if the Concorde is actually there, it would be perfect and rare opportunity to complete the photo. It would be one bada$$ pic! -MW

LOL [nt]

What a challange! :)

 By: blomman Mr Blue : May 20th, 2013-00:18
Hm, I will see - if possible, that would be an awesome pic! :) Best, my friend Blomman

Thank you, "Mirnada" :)

Will tell my father that ! :) Best, my friend Blomman

You took your time but this post is a classic ...

 By: nilomis : May 19th, 2013-13:57
Blomman, I admire your love and dedication to Momos but you always find a way to take this to another level. My sincere congratulations. You should create an electronic book with all of your posts of this category. Cheers, Nilo

Funny, but the original ad was the one hardest to find!

 By: blomman Mr Blue : May 20th, 2013-00:36
The watches are of course not easy to find and fund, but the original ad... To find that one is pure luck! :) Thank you, my friend - interesting idé, maybe one day I will try to make a e-book. Best Blomman

Next step: skydiving!

 By: Marv : May 19th, 2013-14:24
Congrats for this gathering and arrangement. A superb trio, a great performance! I am looking forward for the next step: skydiving ;) Best ...  

Na, still miss the small clock and the add...

 By: blomman Mr Blue : May 20th, 2013-03:32
Have similar clocks but not that ref... And the will enven more problematic to find! When I have them I also need to have a parachute certificate! ;) Best, my friend Blomman

This is actually a much more interesting ad!

 By: blomman Mr Blue : May 20th, 2013-03:19
Thank you, Marv! The ad you show us here is actually much more interesting. Three watches - three different calibers! 825, 916 and if I don't remember incorrect the small travel clock has cal 911 inside. The E 872 was one of the first Memovoxes using the ... 

I'm not sure if I should be amazed by the watches or the ad first.

 By: Ruckdee : May 19th, 2013-17:59
But I am very glad to see your dream is realized. Awesome! Ruckdee

Thank you, Ruckdee! :)

 By: blomman Mr Blue : May 20th, 2013-03:35
Yes, one of my dreams came true! :) Unfortunately, I still have many unfilled dreams... Or should I say luckely?! What would life be without dreams...?! Best, my friend Blomman

Superb post...

Without help...

 By: blomman Mr Blue : May 20th, 2013-10:18
This would have been impossible! :) Thank you, dear friend! Best Blomman


 By: Baron - Mr Red : May 20th, 2013-10:22
I always believe that people tend to get what they deserve in the end. You deserve these beauties. No question.

Then I must have been very good in...

Thank you for your kind words, Asi !

The 11th post was a non-JLC post that passed un-noticed during all the SIHH commotion... amp;ti=763748&fi=17&s=0 Best Blomman

Your patience has been greatly rewarded!

 By: AlexSunrise : May 29th, 2013-08:46
Hi, blomman, What a great treat to see this ad! It comes as a surprise to me to find out about this association. Really cool! And, what is better than the ad, the watches themselves! Super examples all of them! Best, Alex

Well Alex...

The Polaris you know well! Maybe it is time to explore the other "class mates" now? Thank you, my friend! Best Blomman
