In 2018, Jaeger-LeCoultre unveiled the Polaris Date, a timepiece inspired by the 1968 Memovox Polaris, a mainstay of uniquely utilitarian watchmaking. This year, the Swiss luxury watchmaker updates the model to feature a gradient deep green dial.
The timepice features a lacquered, double-gradient dial with multiple textured finishes. A balanced combination of opaline, grained and sunrayed surfaces defines each key dial segment, from the mobile inner bezel ring to the minute track. The color gradient ranges from light olive to verdant rainforest, taking on different shades according to the angle of reflected light. The vanilla-tinted dial indexes stand out with perfect clarity.
The mobile inner bezel, controlled by the crown at the 2 o’clock position, is a key feature of a true diver’s watch, allowing the wearer to measure timing offsets or countdowns with great precision. The Polaris Date features a transparent case-back, while being water-resistant to 200m.
The 42mm case of the Polaris Date features satin-finished surfaces, with polished chamfers on the case lugs and narrow bezel. This allows the dial to take center focus, showcased by the glass-box crystal that recalls the Plexiglas dial crystals of mid-century timepieces.
For maximum versatility in wear, the Polaris Date comes with a green rubber strap that is fitted with a quick-change system. The strap can easily be swapped with a wide range of Jaeger-LeCoultre bracelets and straps with perfect compatibility.
The new green dial of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date is emphasised by its rugged, matt-finished case construction and the vanilla-hued Super-LumiNova® indexes. The watch is powered by the latest-generation Calibre 899, with 70 hours of power reserve.
The Polaris Date is a Boutique Edition and will be available exclusively from Jaeger-LeCoultre e-commerce for a month.
