Geophysic® 1958, A tribute to science and watchmaking precision

Right from its founding in 1833, the Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmaking Manufacture has asserted itself through technical advances that soon earned its luxury watches benchmark status in terms of sturdiness and precision. Within this context, it is thus hardly surprising that – at a time in the mid-20th century when the scientific community composed of researchers from many different countries was preparing to undertake a program of major scientific explorations as part of the International Geophysical Year – the Grande Maison in the Vallée de Joux decided to take part in this unique initiative by creating an exceptional precision instrument: the Geophysic® watch.

In 2014, Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre pays tribute to this legendary timepiece by unveiling two exclusive models – a steel and pink gold watch. A synthesis of the research and technical expertise of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture, these timepieces are driven by an automatic movement boasting tried and tested reliability and resistance. They feature a diameter of 38.5 mm, taking account of contemporary preferences while remaining entirely true to the design of the original model with a pure, highly legible dial.

Considered as a benchmark for watchmaking in 1958, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic® model can withstand all kinds of tests, whether they be for its anti-magnetic or anti-shock qualities, its water resistance or its chronometric precision. The watch was designed for the scientists of the International Geophysical Year in 1958, an unprecedented scientific endeavour.
