The Jaeger‑LeCoultre Polaris collection draws its inspiration from the Memovox Polaris of 1968, an icon of the Grande Maison. At the heart of this historic model is an iconic function: the alarm. Originally, this Memovox function, or "voice of memory," served to remind divers that it was time to return to the surface. The original design with two off-centre crowns and slightly thickened domed glass for enhanced readability has inspired the new collection A sporty look that evokes the Jaeger instruments fitted in the most iconic vintage cars. Designed for the life and travels of today's man, the Jaeger‑LeCoultre Polaris collection is equipped with useful functionalities that are in-keeping with the practical spirit of the Grande Maison. The date, alarm, chronograph and Worldtime chronograph complications accompany him who wears the collection's pieces everyday.
Highly reliable, all models pass the "1,000 Hour Test," a rigorous examination of the assembled watch that takes place over six weeks. Equipping the majority of the models, the sapphire case-back allows discovery of the dark-hued oscillating weight, further enhancing this collection's unique spirit.
