Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Polaris

        One of the most respected Swiss luxury watch-making brands in the world, Jaeger LeCoultre is an exclusivist powerhouse defined by the desire of self overtaking and perpetual renewal, always eager to create timepieces defined by timeless elegance and immaculate performance. This brand always struggled to elevate the standards by which other fine watchmakers are judged, and, through the years, it managed to impose its supremacy by creating remarkable timepieces defined by rare sensitivity and refinement as well as by exceptional mechanical complexity.

        In 2008, Jaeger LeCoultre introduced two new models which celebrate one of the most emblematic timekeeping companions of the 20th century, created in the 60s- Memovox Polaris was one of the most innovative diving watches of its time.

        Their new Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Tribute to Polaris watches feature the distinguished design of the successful Memovox Polaris created in 1965, the same powerful lines and high-performance oriented, innovative nature.

        The high-end polish of the 42 mm case demonstrates a special attention given to the perfection of the purest detail touch, and an inquiring eye will surely be impressed by the watch’s three crowns, first crown triggers the alarm, the second is used for time adjustments and the third governs the inner rotating bezel.

        The overall vintage design of the timepiece features matte-finished black dial , fitted with wedged-shaped hour markers that feature luminescent coating for perfect time-legibility, a central rotating section of the dial coordinates the alarm mechanism. At 3 o’clock position there is a large date aperture.

        At the heart of the commemorative Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Tribute to Polaris beats the hand-decorated the 7.45mm-thick, Calibre 956 movement which oscillates at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and ensures 45-hours power reserve. As a unique feature of this movement we have to mention the alarm mechanism, fitted with one-of-a-kind hanging gong system capable of ensuring optimal sound volume, also an individualizing feature of the watch is the double-case-back system which confers 200 meters water tightness.

        The timepiece also features engraved outer case-back especially designed to enhance the alarm’s acoustic performance, also the watch has convex crystal made of synthetic material and moreover the watch is completed by a patterned leather strap.

        The Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Tribute to Polaris Watches have been manufactured in a limited edition of 1968 stainless steel timepieces and just 165 in platinum watches which come with a price tag starting with $13,900.00 for the stainless steel models.
