Some observation on a couple of colored gold Jaeger Lecoultre Geophysic E 168.

Jaeger Lecoultre Geographique watches. A good example of the Manufacture Diversity

When the Master Géographique was unveiled in 1989, it was an original, friendly, sophisticated and beautiful watch, displaying a complication which is somewhere between the GMT and the World Time.
