Just got my grail
After having lusted for the Extreme Lab 2 ever since I first saw it at the Danish launch some 10-11 years ago, I finally got around to adding one to my collection yesterday.
It is such a unique watch brimming with JLC confidence. I love the technical appearance, the included complications and the feeling of extreme overengineering that this watch brings to the table. It’s not a classic beauty - but it’s what’s on the inside that counts.
I can’t help thinking that this is JLC rolling up their collective sleeves saying “let’s show the world what we can do”.
Anyway, feeling blessed that dreams do turn into reality.

And yes, I have been an avid reader of anything related to the EL2 in here this last few weeks. Such great discussions that helped me in my decision.
Thank you - and I totally agree…
It does not win you over due to its beauty, it forces you over due to its madness. I LOVE it when JLC rolls up their sleeves and do things like this. And thank you for all your posts on this watch. It kept the flame alive over the last many years, all the...
heart-warming to read your account of true enthusiasm maintained over the long distance right to the finish line. That I think the watch is terrific adds to my pleasure. Enjoy it to the full! Cheers Marc
Big Congrats Claus
I too love my RG EL2, got it around 2013. Just love how over engineered and indeed extreme it is. To me I think of it is a kind of hybrid between RM, AP and JLC! Enjoy
Always felt a gravitational pull to this watch. It really is something special. Glad that you were finally able to add it to your collection, that's always an amazing feeling!
JLC once again proving their technical acumen...truly a power house, it does it all!
Good tips, thank you!
Ordered the leather strap. Should get it next week. Never actually tried the watch on the rubber strap. Will try it as I give the watch a bath. Thank you for the tips on saving the straps. By hardware, do you mean the buckle or are there other things to w...
Was fascinated with this model when it was first released. I followed it throughout the years… Pulled the trigger Oct last year. So happy. Such a great piece. PS. I’m timing my kid’s nap time. Haha ...
Brilliant use of that watch!
And a brilliant watch in itself. Not your classic beauty and some people can’t see beyond the looks to see the many crazy solutions that JLC have integrated into that brutal case. Thank you for sharing!
