Jaeger-LeCoultre: Wouldn’t you say..

...that the real modern successor to the Geomatic is the Geophysic True Second?

Photography: Lovely photos.

When I first arrived in Tokyo one of my first weekend trips away was to Karuizawa. I sometimes think that when I retire I should like to live for a while in a small town in Nagano (but I don’t think my wife would be too keen on the idea!)

Horological Meandering: But also

Quite apart from the question of water resistance, I would be careful about exposing a Reverso to the “rigours of daily life” . The case and end-pieces of the carrier are mirror polished and show scratches easily. I only wear mine under a shirt cuff where it has some protection. You may be less conc

The annoying thing is that it doesn’t seem possible to positively relate a particular watch (without its papers) to a model i

Jaeger-LeCoultre: I’m confused!

I referred to this in another thread recently. I thought the second number on the case (seven digits, no stops) was the serial number of the individual watch. Is that what you mean by “case number”? But what is the other number? It is clearly not the reference number of the model. For example, the G
