Inspired by the iconic Memovox Polarisfrom 1968, has developed a new collection to join the brand’s existing pillars. Not just a single homage to a historical reference, the new Polaris collection takes the spirit of Memovox Polaris and applies it to today’s man of action with a full range of timepieces: a three-hand automatic, a chronograph and a chronograph world time, as well as two models with a stronger vintage feel: the Polaris Date and the Polaris Memovox.
Jaeger-LeCoultre has an undeniable link to motorsports, as any person with a love for classic cars will immediately know, having seen the Jaeger dashboard instruments used in the most iconic classic cars and motorcycles. The 42mm Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Chronograph is the sportiest of the new line, equipped with a tachymeter bezel. The tachymeter scale allows you to determine your speed over a fixed distance, perfect for days at the track or to check your own speed on the highway. A chronograph is perhaps the most practical complication in watchmaking. The pushers of this precision instrument have been redesigned for a better grip, and the thin bezel helps to open the dial for maximum readability. This new model offers sharp contrast so the chronograph subdials can be read quickly, complete with oversized triangular indices.
