Jaeger Lecoultre Master Compressor Memovox: The power of a picture.

It is very rare I can say that an official picture made a strong impression on me. Here is one, featuring the Master Compressor Memovox, which made me fall in love with that watch. I fell for this first modern evocation of the legendary Polaris, with thes

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Compressor Extreme World Chronograph. Some pictures.

In the recent Jaeger Lecoultre History, the Master Compressor line was a revolution. Like if a Traditional Family gave birth to a Punk Rocker. I remember the reactions very well. Some said it was not worthy of a Jaeger Lecoultre, others loved it. I was in

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Compressor Memovox Platinum.

Call me crazy, or let's say that sometimes I have crazy ideas... I had, in 2002, a Master Compressor Memovox in steel, which I sold 3 or 4 years after. I always remembered that one. BUT... I had the opportunity to see the platinum version several times an

Jaeger Lecoultre Geographique. An interesting diversity.

This was one of the Mater Control pieces I looked at so many times and even came quite close to getting. As you say, there is something intriguing and exotic about this watch. I came across the white dial several times but had my mind set on the black, so

Advice needed to scratch the Memovox "itch"

Cal 815 inside. Maybe you meant the E 875? JLC has all the parts to service this movement, which is indeed the Cal 916. No problem with that. The plexy should not be an issue. The E 875 sounds like a cricket, or a frog, as you want. The Cal 918 of the Amv

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Control Memovox Timer: An in-depth and on the wrist review.

After a first introduction made some weeks ago, let's come back to the new Memovox, called Master Control Memovox, and most specially the Memovox Timer, now that I could test it for some ten days. Indeed, the press files and official pictures are not accu

Side by side pictures: Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris and Amvox One.

Why these side by side pictures? Easy! The purpose is to show how close these 2 are. At the point that we can see the Amvox One as one of the modern iterations of the icon. Have a look at these, and judge by yourself. Case backs, cases, lugs, location of

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Compressor Memovox Platinum.

It was love at first sight when it was unveiled, in 2003. The retail was not its biggest asset, truly, but the density of the platinum case and the fascination of this blue dial made it very tempting. I always think about it, some 17 years after. Not on t

Jaeger Lecoultre Master Géographique. Which is the first watch which drove you to pay some interest for the brand?

I grew up with a father who wore a Polaris and a Memovox E873. That made me aware of the brand. Living in Brussels, Belgium in 1992~1993, there was a watch dealer that exhibited the Reverso models in steel and steel/gold on the Place du Grand Sablon. Had

Jaeger Lecoultre grey dialed watches. Is grey the new black?

Traditionally, we think that a watch must have a white / sliver or black dial. We see more and more watches with salmon or blue dials, which seems to be nowadays tendance for the brands, even if some brands had blue or salmon dialed watched in their catal
