Jaeger Lecoultre Geophysic Universal Time. One of my targets.

 By: amanico : January 11th, 2021-08:24
It is not a secret that I love World Time watches. I only have one in my collection, which is a milestone, the Patek 5110. 

Though, there are some others which are worth some serious consideration. The JLC Geophysic Universal Time is one of them, and not the less interesting! 

First of all, its aesthetics, which is very much my taste, with this Lambert Projection Dial, but also its case, macho and elegant. 

Then, let's certainly not forget its movement, which is unique as its associates a true second and a world time. AND this is a movement which has been dedicated to this watch! 

A pity Jaeger Lecoultre discontinued this line... And this watch! 



Hello Nico, I recently shot this photo and think you might like it ^ ^. Long exposure (4 sec) was used to show the jumping seconds.

Very well captured.

Good one to go after mon ami. It would pair well with your 5110 👍

Clearly. That would make a perfect duo. I want to make a small collection of world time watches... ;)

Agreed, regarding discontinuation!

For a while I had hoped that the Geophysic line would gain some traction in the market and even expand to include new complication combinations with that super-cool escapement. One can dream... ;-(

I had the same dreams, my friend.

Hi Nicolas! What a shame JLC discontinued this watch and the entire line. Your photograph shows it in all its glory. I confess I was a bit critic when I viewed it your first superb report some years ago...

... about the two ugly screw heads on its beautiful dial. I loved the case, the dial but those screws... 

Finally I had the chance to view it in the metal and felt that the screws didn´t look so bad when on my wrist and they only shows badly on pictures and decided to jump on it. It was very interesting two to have the dead seconds complication together with the WT complication.

I don´t regret my decision as I feel it is such a beautiful watch.

I wish you will be finally getting it for your collection my dear friend.

Abrazos desde las muy calientes pampas amigo mio!

Mine says hello!

Even my two friendly little Sturmtroopers discuss about the screws issue but finally approved!

That makes a big difference when you can see a watch in the real life, amigo. My luck is that, most often, I discover the JLC novelties in the metal before taking pictures of them.

I fell in love at first sight, when I discovered it at the Manufacture, before the official unveiling.
Un abrazo, amigo.

It is absolutely true my dear Nicolas. Watches should be seen in the real life and tried before judging it and more important before deciding if buy it or not. It is very important too to try it on...

... the wrist, as sometimes we like how it looks in other persons but they don´t look so nice on our own wrist.

Agree you are very lucky in discovering JLC novelties in the metal. 

Un abrazo para ti amigo mio!

That's true, too. Un abrazo, amigo mio.
