REVIEW: From the Boardroom to the Beach, The Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Chronograph (Part I)

Background

We recently tested the Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Chronograph, which was first introduced in May 2012. In our review, we will show you our original photos and give your our thoughts on how the watch feels on the wrist, how it looks, and how it works — like usual. However, for this particular review, we will take what we typically do a step further. We not only tested the Deep Sea in our office and in the concrete jungle, New York City, we also took it to its native environment — the sea.

In (Part I) we will show images and give our impressions of the watch in a dry environment. And in (Part II), we will show you images and give our thoughts from wearing the watch at the beach, underwater and how it performs in a wet environment.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Ultra Thin Duoface Bleu Two faced?

In life we often use the term “two faced” to describe a deceitful, duplicitous soul. However, there is nothing less than virtuous about this latest offering, from practitioners of haute horology, Jaeger-LeCoultre.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Ultra Thin Duoface Bleu has two faces, as the name suggests, but beneath the handsome lines, there is honesty. I make no secret I have long been a fan of the brand from Le Sentier. They are a manufacture with a profound ability to invent sublime movements embracing innovation and craftsmanship in equal measure.

This is a hands-on look at the all new Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Perpetual Calendar.

Launched last week at the brand’s new Las Vegas boutique, the collection comes in three variations, including a steel model that will be boutique only and retails for a price that I think you will agree, is quite fair for a perpetual — especially one this thin.

The Atmos Hermès clock

The Atmos Hermès clock

Hermès, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Les Cristalleries de St. Louis, collaborated to produce the Atmos Hermès clock. Presented in a beautiful handmade transparent crystal globe (276 x 276 x 276 mm).

It has an annular balance, a 15 jewel movement, and it operates at a frequency of 1 vibraion per minute.

The sphere is made with an extra-white mineral glass with black silkscreen printing. The mechanism features a satin-brushed rhodiumed and polished finish. Hours and minutes are displayed via black dauphine type hands. Rhodiumed 172 mm-diameter base. Limited to 176 pieces.
