Question about Tribute references difference

Hello all, I am actively considering the Memovox Tribute to Polaris 1968. This was actually prompted by my trying on the new 50th anniversary model in the NY Boutique; but because of rubber strap and overly 'modernized' aesthetic, I believe the Tribute to

A Lecoultre Polaris Reference E 859 " Memodate " will soon be auctioned by Phillips. It is the opportunity to remind some facts. The Polaris E 859 certainly is a rare watch, with only 50 prototypes made in 1963 ( not issued, just prototypes ), 500 watches

An unusual JLC

The National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors had its annual watch mart at the Del Mar Fairgrounds over the weekend. Since I was busy with the Habring2 / Keaton Myrick event, plus car shows, etc etc I had very little time to scan the show. But we

An unpublished picture of a watch which is one of the two or three I miss to end my vintage JLC collection. On this one, only the hands are not correct. The rest is a pure marvel. Best, Nicolas

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 vanill

JLC Home time Aston Martin on Rubber strap?

So what do you guys think? Living in South Florida, I'm always looking for a comfortable strap that wont get damaged as quickly on an everyday watch. I had these custom made in green and blue, I know the Hometime is a 40mm case with 21MM x 18mm lug width.

Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Memovox 50th Anniversary: A wrist shot.

Taken during the SIHH 2018, at the moment it was unveiled by Jaeger Lecoultre. The few things I would change: The Strap. Even if more comfortable and of a higher quality than the one on the Tribute, it is still not my taste. The crowns: I would love to se
