Jaeger Lecoultre Geophysic Universal Time.

Nov 04, 2019,11:26 AM
 

One picture of a Geophysic Universal Time recently auctioned ( by Antiquorum ). 



Each time I see one, my heart is beating faster. Duometres apart, this is one of my modern Jaeger Lecoultre priority. 

It would make a great pair with my Patek 5110P. Two different visions of a same complication. 

Best,

Nicolas

Yes, however, my opinion is that the Geophysic...

Is easier to read and operate, since the cities don’t move when the time is changed. I like the fact that your home city is always at whatever hour location every time you look at it. The 5110 and 5130 and 5230 are, without a doubt, very collectible becau... 

A modern Classic, indeed. I agree and disagree about the second hand.

I know that it can be disturbing to see the second hand " jumping " rather than sweeping, but I disagree as it is THE raison d'être of this Geophysic... I am very happy to know that this watch houses a very nice looking AND technical movement. Best, Nicol... 

The dead-beat seconds doesn’t bother me...

But I know it has bothered others. What I REALLY like is the double-sided bridge and technical features of this movement. It is really designed as a robust movement. I believe it may have had its roots in the “Autotractor” series (975), when looking at th... 

I really like the Cal 770 / 772, a lot.

I hope to see more stuff like this from JLC... A Polaris Home time? Why not? After the Geographique, the WT Chrono, why not a friendly HT? ...  

Great piece

This is a very special piece.. many might overlook it due to the dead beat but it’s a masterpiece. No pushers or additional crowns, yet setting and reading the time is so convenient... so sad to see this discontinued. There are many worldtimers but this i... 

Well, I think you may know where I stand on this one, Nicolas... ;-)

The Patek is an iconic piece, to be sure -- but, for a number of reasons, I prefer the Geophysic. The fact that the city ring is fixed is a plus -- but, even better, the cities themselves are placed on the ring so as to approximate their relative position...  

Agreed! [nt]

Universal time watches!

I take your point on Swiss world time watches here. They are spectacular! Nevertheless, don’t forget that vintage Japanese watches like the Seiko worldtime GMT or the Citizen 68-0516 are much more cosmopolitan than their Swiss-based counterparts (ha ha). ... 

Yep!

Curious that they use the Paris-Rome (or even Madrid) nomenclature for the first meridian. Swiss watches only show the position of Paris or a couple of Swiss cities. Japanese!

I have the Orient World Time...

With the reverse-panda layout. It has guilloche dial, power reserve, is 43mm with sapphire crystal and in-house (though completely NOT decorated) movement, and it is gorgeous! And it cost me all of US $316. Oh, and the Orient movements wind very efficient... 

Wow!

I am just gathering a couple of pictures of those watches and as soon as I get the permissions I would like to share them with you in the Horological Meandering feature. What do you think?

Go! [nt]

It's amazing, really. -Dean

Lucky you! :))) [nt]
