Le Sentier-Based Jaeger-LeCoultre Introduces The Polaris Date With a Spellbinding Deep Green Dial Gradient
- 17th May 2022
The Polaris Date was introduced by Antoine LeCoultre founded luxury watch company Jaeger-LeCoultre about four years ago. The renowned clock was inspired by the Memovox Polaris, a remarkably functional timepiece from 1968.
Now in 2022, the Swiss luxury watchmaker redesigned the model with a gradient deep green dial.
The dial of the timepiece is lacquered and boasts different textured textures. Each dial section, from the movable inner bezel ring to the minute track, is characterised by a balanced blend of opaline, grainy, and sunrayed surfaces. Depending on the angle at which light is reflected, the colour gradient spans from light olive to a lush jungle, assuming various hues. The indices of the vanilla-colored dial stand out with exquisite clarity.
The movable inner bezel, which is controlled by the crown at 2 o'clock, is an essential component of a genuine diver's watch, enabling the wearer to precisely calculate time offsets or countdowns. The Polaris Date has a see-through caseback and is water-resistant to 200 metres.
The Polaris Date boasts a 42mm case with satin-finished surfaces and polished chamfers on the case lugs and thin bezel. This enables the dial to be the focal point, highlighted with a glass-box crystal reminiscent of the Plexiglas dial crystals of mid-century clocks.
The SpiritThe Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris is defined by its exceptional performance in severe settings. The movable inner bezel, controlled by the crown at 2 o'clock, allows the user to precisely monitor time offsets or countdowns. The Polaris Date has a clear case-back and is water-resistant to a depth of 200m, making it equally at home in a metropolis or the oceanic depths.
Straps AbundantThe Polaris Date has a green rubber strap with a quick-change mechanism and an interchangeable folding clasp for optimum flexibility in use. The strap is compatible with a broad variety of Jaeger-LeCoultre bracelets and straps and may be interchanged in only seconds.
The dwindling Green DialA hand-lacquered dial with a double-gradient from light olive to emerald rainforest enables the Polaris Date to prioritise visibility without sacrificing elegance. A well-balanced combination of opaline, grainy, and sunrayed surfaces distinguishes each important dial section, from the movable inner bezel ring to the minute track. The robust, vanilla-hued indexes and Arabic numerals on the dial are coated with SuperLuminova and stand out with immaculate clarity.
The fresh green dial of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date is accentuated by the case's matte finish and the vanilla-colored Super-LumiNova indexes. The watch is powered by a brand-new Calibre 899 with a power reserve of 70 hours.
The Polaris Date Boutique Edition will be limited to Jaeger-online LeCoultre's store for one month.
