Two pictures of the Vintage Lecoultre Polaris 1965.

In its element, past summer. The Polaris 1965 is one of my favorite vintage JLC. Very hard to find, especially in good condition and original ( be careful to not fall on a re assembled specimen... But it is quite easy to check ), this watch as such an all

For the pleasure of the heart. Jaeger Lecoultre Tribute to Polaris 1965 and 1968.

The Tribute to Polaris is not only a very good looking watch, with a lot of charm and presence, but it also is a friendly watch, with its alarm, reminding you ( which is very important, especially in these special times ), the moments of a day, meetings,

Jaeger Lecoultre Tribute To Polaris 1965. Not the most popular, but not the less attractive.

The rare TT Polaris 1965 in steel, with only 65 pieces, while the platinum version was released in 165 pieces. The dial is very close to the Memovox E 855 Black, in bigger. Less cool than the TT Polaris 1968, but more elegant, probably. Here is a series o

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
