Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date Blue
The dial ... despite the date window, it’s still a gorgeous dial imho.
I quite like the date there on the dial as the original Polaris has a date too. I would have preferred if the date window is not white , not even blue to match the dial but in a vanilla colour to match the indices. Somehow, vanilla/off-white with a yellow hue goes well with blue. I guess yellow and blue generally go well together .
Having said that, I appreciate the legibility of the dial (very easy to read time!) and the date window needs to be as legible too from a functional standpoint. After all, this watch is designed after the famous Memovox Polaris so legibility of everything on the dial including the date is important.
Overall, this dial is sublime. A lot of depth. I try my best to capture the spirit of the dial but still the pics do not beat seeing (and feeling ) the watch in the metal !
Have a good weekend everyone!
