Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Geographic

Although not typically recognized for sports watches, Jaeger-LeCoultre turned to its iconic 1968 Memovox Polaris, a celebrated dive watch with an underwater alarm, as inspiration for its sporty Polaris collection introduced in 2018. Recently, the brand expanded this collection with a new model, the Polaris Geographic. This latest addition embraces a modern ocean gray color scheme accented with orange highlights and maintains the collection’s signature dial textures. Equipped with practical travel features such as a dual time function, a day/night indicator, and a 24-city ring, the Polaris Geographic is designed to cater to the needs of global travelers.The 42mm case with a thickness of 11.54mm is crafted from stainless steel, combining brushed and polished finishes to accentuate its classic Polaris design with a touch of vintage flair. The case is sporty yet elegant, featuring taut lines and curved lugs that flow into a thin bezel. Two large crowns at 3 and 10 o'clock are positioned to facilitate the operation of the watch's multiple functions, including the setting of the dual time zone and city selector.On the flipside, the exhibition caseback offers a view into the intricate workings of the in-house caliber 939. Made from sapphire crystal, this caseback allows enthusiasts to admire the precise engineering and beautiful decoration of the movement, including its openworked components and the efficiency of its automatic winding mechanism.It comes equipped with two crowns, strategically positioned at 3 and 10 o'clock. The crown at 3 o'clock is used for winding the watch and setting the time, while the crown at 10 o'clock controls the city selector for the second time zone adjustment. This layout allows for intuitive operation and adds to the functional sophistication of the timepiece. All topped by a glass-box sapphire crystal. Water-resistance can reach up to 100 meters (330 feet).Time is exhibited on a gray dial in an intricate combination of sun-ray, grained and opaline finishes, with the Arabic numerals: 3, 9, 12 and applied hour index markers. This main dial area is detailed with various textures that differentiate the multiple functions, as a subtle gradient effect that transitions from light to dark. While circling around is a peripheral black opaline minutes/seconds track features an aperture displaying the names of 24 cities, The central area of the dial is sunray-brushed and hosts several complications. It includes a power reserve indicator with an orange depletion zone, and a 12-hour second time zone that intersects a smaller day/night indicator with an orange-tipped hand. This layout not only ensures clarity and ease of reading but also enhances the sporty yet sophisticated look of the watch.The semi-skeletonized central hour/minute hands and the seconds hand have all been fitted with luminescent filling for enhanced legibility in low-light conditions. The green-emission Super-LumiNova on the hands ensures time can be read clearly at any time of day or night, while the vibrant orange accents provide a striking contrast against the gray backdrop, ensuring the Polaris Geographic stands out for its functional and aesthetic appeal.
