Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Polaris collection fuses the best of the Maison’s watchmaking expertise and stringent attention to detail, resulting in a modern and ultra refined piece, with vintage charm and sporty elegance. The cases have been redesigned in a striking blend of brushed and hand-polished surfaces, with sharp, plunging lugs and thin, rounded bezels. Large crowns, a tribute to 1968 model, feature improved grip, and exhibition backs showcase the highly impressive manufacture movements—complete with an oscillating weight featuring the Jaeger-LeCoultre logo. Interchangeable alligator and calfskin straps round out the eye-catching aesthetic elements.
Technical details are just as awe-inspiring. The dial’s three concentric circles are rendered in a blend of finishes: a Memovox Polaris-inspired center with a sunray finish, graining on the outer circle with the hours and minutes, and an opaline finish on the rotating inner bezel. Numerals are the traditional Arabic with contemporary trapezoidal indexes; the hands are oversized and replete with Super-LumiNovaTM* for exceptional visibility in low light (in some models the hue is a vintage vanilla in homage to the original). Classically offered in black, the new Polaris is available in a black or ocean blue dial for a more athletic style.
