Jaeger-Lecoultre Polaris 1968: Ask for the original!

 By: amanico : May 2nd, 2014-03:00
Don't get me wrong, I am totally in love with the Tribute To Polaris 1968 ( 1965, too ), but when it comes to Vintage Polaris, I most often wear my beloved 1965, much less the 1968. But curiously, this is not the Polaris I most often wear, compared to the...  

I think I understand

I have to say, I tried a lot of straps with the TTP65, and finally seem to have landed on the "original" Tropic, as well. The 1965 (vintage or tribute) is easier to match with a wide range of straps, I think, so the task was not as difficult as with the 1...  

A pity the original strap on the TT Polaris is not that qualitative.

Did you try to find a vintage Tropic strap? A beauty, my friend, a beauty! Best, Nicolas

I did

The strap in my photos is a NOS Tropic rubber strap. It is much more durable than the original strap that came on the Tributes. Costly, but it will probably last forever. Best, respo

Thanks for looking, Mystiqz. A black strap is the top on this one.

Calf or tropic, IMO... Best, Nicolas

Guess, I would.. If I only could !.. But let me say.. ;))

.. it is a funny observation, for me as well : I think I've tried about 6 or 7 different straps, trying to match them to various dial components of my (only) TTP 68 - I know, I know - not the same .. ;) - And after a 360 degrees, I re-landed again with th... 

When I mentionned the real thing, I meant the strap.

Not the TTP which is in my opinion, an excellent Watch. Time to try to find an original tropic, my friend! ;) Best, Nicolas

Thanks !.. Have been looking for a while, not yet successful.. ;)

In fact, the black strap , exactly as you said, is the best match, enhancing the color- accents of the TTP, and makes her also fit for a easy evening .. - There she competes with my beloved TT DSA - EU, which is a cool companion Best, and thx for the enco... 

I agree that the original Tropical is a great combo...

But personally I prefer this... :) Best Blomman ...  

Agree with you. I really like the new look

Blommans choice is nice too, but somehow I like these watches with black. Wearing it ths weekend? Hagwe Joe

I agree with you

 By: WTA : May 3rd, 2014-04:42
that the original is so very suitable for this watch and truly the watch look more beautiful . But the previous strap was also beautiful as this watch can make any strap suitable. I think that view will always go to the case and dial of the watch. I am al...
