DESCRIPTION

  • New milestones in the Geophysic collection

    Created in 1958 by Jaeger-LeCoultre in honour of the International Geophysical Year, the first Geophysic watch remains a symbol of Swiss expertise par excellence. In keeping with this tradition, the Manufacture in the Vallée de Joux launched the Geophysic collection in 2015; a collection of several models combining powerful watchmaking expertise with a classic, timeless aesthetic. This line has now been reinterpreted reinforcing its original qualities: a generously dimensioned case, easily legible functions, visible luminescent hands, the hightech Gyrolab balance wheel, etc.

    For the first time in its history, Jaeger-LeCoultre has introduced a flying tourbillon in a watch, allowing the time in twenty-four cities around the world to be read simultaneously. Available in a limited series of 100 pieces, the Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time watch is a testament to the Manufacture's remarkable watchmaking skills expressed through the watch's ease-of-use and operating.

    For the Geophysic True Second and Geophysic Universal Time, what’s new in 2017 comes down to one word: interchangeability. With the introduction of a new interchangeable bracelet, these two models are now available in a resolutely contemporary steel version and a sleek and elegant leather version.

    Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time

    An invitation to travel... and to precision

    For the first time, the master watchmakers at Jaeger-LeCoultre have combined a flying tourbillon with universal time. With its 43.5 mm platinum case, the Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time asserts itself as the most exclusive piece in the eponymous collection. Fascinating in many ways, this timepiece offers exceptional readability and operating.

    While remaining true to the ingenuity which allows for the creation of complex yet easy-to-use mechanisms, the Manufacture has followed the rules of the watchmaking tradition that defines it. Featuring the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 948, the Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time embodies this inventive spirit in a unique and universal way. Under the dome of its sapphire crystal, it presents a 360-degree view of the world...

    One rotation in 24 hours

    In this majestic planisphere, the eye is drawn to the flying tourbillon, which appears to float in space with the absence of a bridge to hold its cage. The lightly convex side view of the dial recalls the shape of a globe. On the intense blue lacquered ocean, small spirals form waves amplifying the impression of relief and depth that the watch creates when viewed from above. With a satin-brushed finish, the continents move across the central disc every 24 hours i.e. following the pace set by the flying tourbillon. In this landscape that changes as the hours go by, the tourbillon rotates around itself and the guilloché dial with remarkable accuracy. The eye is then drawn to the accelerated rolling of the Gyrolab balance wheel which, in addition to its balance spring hand-crafted in the workshops of the Manufacture, features the shape of a watch anchor, the symbol of Jaeger-LeCoultre.

    Easy readability combined with surprisingly simple adjustment

    With constant readability thanks to the luminescent material, which constitutes the points on the flange of the dial and the hands, the Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time watch is easily set with a single crown. Turning over the watch, enthusiasts will recognise the detailing and ingenuity of its mechanism glimpsed through the sapphire crystal case-back. Outshining the rubies and blued screws, the solid gold monobloc oscillating weight reveals Jaeger-LeCoultre’s two characteristic initials through the heart of its half-sphere. This gifted watchmaker's symbol is visible from the front and back.

    Geophysic Collection

    A worthy successor to a chronometer of the utmost precision and resistance created in 1958, the Geophysic remains a legendary model, which the master watchmakers of Jaeger-LeCoultre continue to reinvent ever more boldly. While embodying the classic codes of a simple and refined aesthetic, this measuring instrument offers a range of interpretations representing a unique watchmaking expertise.
