If you have two different references about the Geomatic, it is because you have two different cases.
Next time you come, I will show you my RG Geomatic, and we'll compare it with your SS. You will notice that the shape of the lugs is not the same, at all.
Now, as for the Geomatic being an amagnetic watch... What I think is that the marketting exagerated a bit the antimagnetic virtues of this watch.
To me, and AFAIK, the only part of the watch which is antimagnetic is the escapement, and I would be very surprised that the Geomatic qualifies as an amagnetic watch, at the contrary of the SS Geophysic.
Another funny detail is in the ad " the man in action " series.
One features a horseman, more precisely a Polo Player... Which is a bit in contradiction with the roots of the brand, as Polo was historically linked with another JLC watch, the Reverso.
The other is more appealing, to me, featuring a Driver. I would be very curious to know what car is this one. A Facel Vega? The Dashboard is really cool and suggests Gran Turismo.
Anyway, the Geomatic is a great and very elegant watch, not as mythic as the Geophysic, but, in my opinion, more elegant.
A watch to rediscover, and the ads serve this purpose very well.
Thanks a lot, my friend, for another reference post.
