Geophysic, the Milestone Collection by Jaeger-LeCoultre
The first glance reveals a clean-cut design that is the epitome of elegance and equilibrium.
Each model in the Geophysic line features several layers of meaning, gradually unleashing powerful and innovative horological content that is expressed through classic characteristics. This refined and contemporary creation asserts its masculine nature in a number of subtle ways.
The collection is named after a watch that belongs both to universal history and the heritage of the Manufacture. In 1958, the International Geophysical Year, Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre created a chronometer for scientists on missions. Capable of withstanding the magnetic fields of the North Pole while losing nothing of its formidable precision, its overriding characteristic was extreme resistance. The Grande Maison is now choosing to revive this legendary name in two models, blending aesthetic elegance, technical sophistication, and 21st century user friendliness for the new Geophysic True Second watch and the Geophysic Universal Time watch.
Nothing that Jaeger-LeCoultre does is governed by exclusively external considerations. This is demonstrated by the case of the Geophysic True Second watch, which measures exactly 39.6 mm. An elegant and reassuring diameter confirms its cultural roots in the field of fine watchmaking. The choice in size was determined by a quest to find the perfect size, enabling the luxury watch to express perfect harmony.
Geophysic® explores the subtle nuances of contemporary classicism, reinforced by the traditional hands reflecting the codes of the Vallée de Joux, as well as the linear hour-markers. The design of the case in turn reveals another facet of its personality through finishes worthy of the most precious Jaeger-LeCoultre models. The lugs do not meet the case middle with a gentle curve, but rather with a decisive angle, expressing strength and confidence. Their sides are polished to accentuate their sleek silhouette.
