Some pictures of the Jaeger Lecoultre Geomatic.

You certainly know the Geomatic, one of the most famous Jaeger Lecoultre Chronometer, which took the place of the Geophysic, in 1962. The Geomatic, to make it short, came with two different cases and two different metals. In Steel, Ref E 398: With its fam

Damn... My first problem with a JLC...

Their reps are quite snobby at times, I had a big quarrel with a brand manager in Singapore because they sent me my Geophysic user manual with a torn page. And the torn page coincidentally was in my native language. I suspected foul play. My previous navy

When you think " Jaeger Lecoultre ", which is the first watch which comes to your mind?

I think of the slogan “watchmaker of watchmakers”. For example, the IWC Mark 12 used the calibre 899, and countless Royal Oaks have used their movements. Anything creative, slightly above mid-tier comes to mind. Something groundbreaking, ground-up comes t

When you think " Jaeger Lecoultre ", which is the first watch which comes to your mind?

A long time ago, in the early 2000's, I read a well written article saying that for some brands, there were some cannibal watches: For example, Audemars Piguet is cannibalized by the Royal Oak, Blancpain by the Fifty Fathoms, Omega by the Speedmaster... A

Jaeger Lecoultre Geophysic True Second Blue: An official picture can be very nice nice sometimes.

You wrote that “this is the kind of watches JLC excels in” : that got me thinking and you summarized exactly something I was pondering on, namely the positioning of JLC (incl within the Richemont family of companies)? •I think that on the dress watch fron

Jaeger Lecoultre Geophysic True Second Blue: An official picture can be very nice nice sometimes.

Wrist Shot, in situ. It shows the watch in all its beauty, and charm. Funny how, in blue, it looks less austere and more " cool ". what do you think? Best, Nicolas

My Jubilée collection. Jaeger Lecoultre 2233 Rose Gold, Memovox Parking 3161 and Geophysic E 168.

I was there, some years ago. Since then, only the 2233 in rose gold left my collection. And I changed the dial on the Geophysic, for a NOS crosshairs, but I kept the more common dial, just in case... Always a pride and a pleasure to build something like t

And the journey continues… it may be my age or my unorthodox taste but I have to say this universal time is perfect for casual blue jeans weekend attire!

Lately intricate dial designs have caught my attention and this Jlc ticks all the boxes at a surprisingly reasonable price point. The deadbeat seconds complication is quite interesting but to be honest I could live without it. Other that that I think it’s
