Polaris Geographic WT Timepiece Announced by Jaeger-LeCoultre

The Polaris Geographic WT follows up on the launch of the much talked about Polaris collection, which arrived earlier this year during the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie that took place in Geneva. With a design inspired by the lines of the Memovox Polaris timepiece, which was released in 1968, the Polaris Geographic WT easily meshes with the iconic style associated with Jaeger-LeCoultre. Additionally, it has a sporty vibe and is suited for everyday wear whether at work or on an adventurous trek outdoors.

The timepiece has a 42 mm case that contains a new self-winding Calibre 936A/1 mechanical movement along with a geographic function. Waterproof up to a depth of 100 meters, the timepiece is targeted at men who are always on the move. The World Time watch also features 24 time zones that are arranged around the flange, and can be adjusted by the user with the aid of the crown. Additionally, the watch usefully displays switches that can be used between standard time and daylight saving time, and there is white mark consisting of an asterisk which shows the difference.

Jaeger-LeCoultre will be offering 250 pieces of the timepiece and these will be available through the boutiques operated by the company.
