Inspired by the notorious Memovox Polaris, a watch that was at first delivered somewhere in the range of 1965 and 1968 and focused on the USA market, Jaeger-LeCoultre currently presents the Polaris Date.

This watch is being dispatched only for the US market until October first. Jaeger-LeCoultre talks about a pre-dispatch, yet I am not persuaded you can discuss pre-dispatch when you’re dispatching another watch. At any rate, the watch will be accessible for the US market just from the start, and afterward the remainder of the world will follow. Altogether, there will be 800 bits of this Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date

As you can see, Jaeger-LeCoultre utilized delightful tones of blue for the dial. The dial comprises of numerous parts with various wrapping up. What we love about it is the shading change impact on the middle dial from profound turquoise to a delightful regal blue. At that point, there’s the dial (with numerals) that has been hand-lacquered, blue twofold inclination with grain wrapping up. Other than the Polaris Date being a perfectly planned watch, the dial is the fundamental fascination here. The false patina impact of the numerals (JLC calls this vanilla-colored radiant covering, so you know) looks incredible on the blue background. Quite recently, we composed that the (restricted release) Memovox was our #1 pick of the Polaris line ( here ), however this new Polaris Date is really dazzling also. Furthermore, maybe, a touch really shimmering. Where the spotless look of the Polaris Memovox could wind up in getting somewhat exhausted with the dull hued dial, you most likely won’t be with this blue Polaris Date.

The case back of this 42mm steel sports watch shows a SCUBA jumping badge and the ordinary etching strategy. Here is likewise where JLC demonstrates that this Polaris Date is a restricted release of 800 pieces. As Richemont Group brands (frequently) do, it shows ‘one of xxx’ rather than a special number. We’ve covered this theme a few times previously, and we incline toward an exceptional number.

This Polaris Date is water-impervious to 200 meters, and you can take it with you in the water on the grounds that JLC joined a pleasantly planned elastic lash for it.

Inside this watch, we discover their type 899A/1 development, with a force hold of 38 hours. The watch has been put to the 1000 hours control test methods and gives Jaeger-LeCoultre enough certainty to furnish it with a 8 years guarantee. As far as anyone is concerned, the longest guarantee period in the watch business on an arrangement watch.

Price is $8,250USD, we will update the sheet beneath when the costs for Europe are communicated.
