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!
Cheers
Robin

Unfortunately, they emphasize the need for a date with a matching background or there should be a 3 instead. Nevertheless, still a gorgeous dial.

I look at it so much. It makes me want to pull out the camera in different light and grab a shot. I just took one now right before replying!! JLC still has a lot to offer and this is proof that they can step up their game anytime!! Imagine if they offered...

Regarding the date window I am with you. The best would have been to see this wonderful dial without any date window. Cheers Thomas
