Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Timepiece Will Step Up Your Watch Game
Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Timepiece will help you step up your wrist game.
Unveiled at Hong Kong’s Watches & Wonders exhibition, these watches have clean lines and crisp dial.
Among the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic True Second watch, another great timepiece is making its way into the world.
As part of the collection for 2015 is this Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Time, a watch that brings something new and unique to the world of watches.
It features a stunning world map dial, and a larger case size. The company’s first Geophysic watch was released in 1958 and the cult favorite was something the collectors knew about until 2014.
Then, the Jaeger-LeCoultre decided to reintroduce the collection as Geophysic 1958 watches.
The first timepieces were worn by the first men to reach the North Pole and have a great history behind them.
When the company introduced the 2015 Geophysic 1958 watches, really hit a stride with the Geophysic collection in terms of desirability.
Both the Geophysic True Second and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Time use the same base movement architecture.
The Geophysic True Second and Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Time do not share the same case size.
While the True Second is 39.6mm wide the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Time is a bit larger at 41.6mm in diameter.
The Geophysic(R) Universal Time watch is powered by the calibre 772.
The 274-part movement offers True Seconds and World Time. True Seconds are seconds that jump instead of the traditional sweeping, and the World Time tells time in all of the 24 zones.
It’s a simple enough looking movement, with a rose gold rotor to power the automatic winding for the 40-hour power reserve.
Most notably, in the cutout by the center you can see a second spring that is tied to a deadbeat seconds’ complication. It means the seconds hand “ticks” like what you’d see on a quartz watch instead of slowly sweeping.
Each second is marked out precisely, and that visible spring makes sure there’s no snapping or wavering of the hand.
It features graded lacquered shades of blue for the oceans, and continents engraved and finished in a white gold sunburst motif.
