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.

They have also introduced two models with a stronger vintage feel: the JaegerLeCoultre

POLARIS DATE (below)

With the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date, the link to the original Polaris from 1968 is stronger than ever. Like the original, this watch uses the same design codes — Vanilla Super-LumiNova™*, the triangle along with trapezoidal indices mixed with four Arabic numbers, a railway track for the minutes — and features a date at three o’clock.

Characteristics:

  • Size: 42mm, stainless steel
  • Movement: automatic mechanical movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 899/1
  • Power reserve: 38 hours
  • Functions: hours/minutes/seconds, date, rotating inner bezel
  • Dial: black with sunrayed, grained and opaline finishes
  • Water resistance: 200m

POLARIS MEMOVOX (below)

Issued in a limited edition of 1,000 pieces, this model features the special alarm function made famous by the 1968 Memovox Polaris watch. This 50th anniversary timepiece has an iconic three-crown design: one for setting the alarm (top), one for the inner rotating bezel (middle) and one for setting the time (bottom). The vintage cues on the dial call to mind the 1968 original – vanilla Super-LumiNova™*, trapezoidal indices mixed with four Arabic numbers – and the triangle in the dial center serving as the alarm indicator. Controlled by the alarm crown, the central disc turns to line up the triangle with the desired alarm time.
