Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date iN 2024

First introduced in 1968 as the "Memovox Polaris," this watch model became a standout when JLC revamped it in 2018 with a contemporary design, quickly turning it into a crowd favorite. Over the years, we've seen various versions including automatic, chronograph, world times, and even a faithful reproduction of the original Memovox. The latest Polaris Date release showcases an elegant, sporty look, featuring an ocean-grey lacquer dial. This dial's exquisite appearance results from 35 successive coats of lacquer, a double gradation, and three levels of finishing, adding depth and sophistication to its design.The 42mm case with a thickness of 13.92mm is made of stainless-steel with vertically brushed surface, casebands and polished accents. Mountd to the case is a thin mirror polished steel bezel, from which underneath push forward the short lugs that have come to characterize this particular model line.On the flip-side is a screwed-on caseback with a sapphire exhibition center that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. It comes equipped with two crowns, the one positioned at 4 o'clock, is designated for time adjustments, while the other is used to rotate the inner bezel. All topped by a box-shaped sapphire crystal. that assists with water-resistance reaching up to 200 meters (656 feet). Time is exhibited on a gray blue dial in a combination of sun-ray, grained and opaline finishes, with the Arabic numerals: 6, 9, 12 and polished rhodium-plated hour index markers. While circling around the periphery of the dial is its standard rotating inner bezel with a 60-minute scale. Its worth noting that this  ocean-gray color is the result of 35 successive coats of lacquer, with double gradation, and three levels of finishingThe central skeletonised steel hour hand, hour index markers and Arabic numerals have all been fitted with a blue lume, while the minute hand has been given a differentiating orange luminescence, for an enhanced legibility.There is also a date aperture at the 3 o’clock position, which follows the recent trend of being crafted with rounded edges for a smoother look.
