Perhaps the Polaris Date Limited Edition Q9068681?

Sep 01, 2021,20:56 PM
 

Though I'm not sure it was a US edition, and lacks the alarm of course. But the "Blue Double Gradient" dial with off-white numerals is certainly beautiful, and it came with a very nice strap. If that's the watch Dean was referring to, I can certainly see the appeal.

An in-depth and on the wrist review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Memovox Mariner.

 
 By: amanico : September 1st, 2021-09:01
As you know, the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Memovox Mariner was issued one year ago, in September 2020, more precisely. I have always been surprised by the timing issue of a diving watch by Jaeger Lecoultre. Indeed, to me, it would have been more appropriat...  

Totally agree on all points raised

Interesting discovery about the lume, as that has been part of the marketing pictures used. A really nice watch but I agree on the point you raise about the price. To me, JLC has added 10-15% too much. Not sure the brand can carry that kind of weight. I t...  

Many thanks for this wonderful review Nicolas!

In my opinion, this watch would be almost perfect with a matching blue rubber strap or, like you wrote, a 100% brushed bracelet. I found an illustration of the Mariner equipped with such a rubber strap on WatchPatrol. All the best ...  

Comprehensive review - thanks

Hi Great review - echoes some of my thoughts, though I still need to see one in the metal. Definitely like to see it available on a strap - as not the biggest fan of bracelets, also while it's nice to see the movement think I'd prefer a solid caseback and... 

Thanks for reading, Vallura.

Thank you for a thorough and very interesting review.

And for very nice pictures! I really like this watch, but totally agree with you regarding the price......

Alas... Thanks, Im6.

Well you certainly make a very compelling case for it Nicolas! Amazing collage of pictures of well

Looks really good on a bracelet this one!

Thanks for the great review and pictures Nico

It looks a handsome watch but if I was going to buy a JLC sports watch I would prefer an Amvox. From the perspective of a dive watch I would rather have a Deepsea James Cameron. Nice Persol/Stone Island (I had to magnify your picture and google the refere... 

Thank you Nicolas!

1/ THE CASE AND CASE BACK: I don't really see any Pros to the exhibition case back personally. Would the watch be slightly thinner with a solid case back? Would the alarm sound slightly stronger with a solid caseback? If so, I would consider those signifi... 

A very good review

Balanced with pros and cons. It dawned on me, the Polaris Mariner is a very beautiful watch that happens to be a dive watch. The dive specs are secondary to its unique looks. I much prefer the Tribute to 1968 to this, but that piece has a lower water resi... 

Love the dial, though not quite...

as much as the US LE edition of 800 pieces. The vanilla indices made the watch very warm. -Dean

US LE 800 pieces???

Your bracelet remark: "Why did Jaeger Lecoultre didn't think of a quick setting of the bracelet length, through the buckle?" Unbelievable! The cheapest-of-the-line, the Polaris Automatic, comes with a very similar looking bracelet with quick adjust! So th... 

Merci beaucoup.

Past Polaris, you meant?

Superb pictures and nice wording… thanks el Bastardo…

 
 By: Alfihar : September 2nd, 2021-06:20
the temptation would have been great ... but the dial is not black I would also have preferred an all brushed bracelet and another buckle… and I (unfortunately) have other priorities right now ... ;-( Best Ø

The alarm, my friend. :)))

A little envious of its summer travels.

I have been eagerly anticipating this review!

I have been attracted since its launch, and your thorough review might very well push me over the edge, my friend. Agree that the bracelet would preferably have been all brushed. The brilliant dial is the most compelling selling point to me.
