New milestones in the Geophysic collection

Geophysic Toubillon Universal Time For the first time in its history, Jaeger-LeCoultre has introduced a flying tourbillon in a watch, allowing the time in twenty-four cities around the world to be read simultaneously.

In this majestic planisphere, the eye is drawn to the flying tourbillon, which appears to float in space with the absence of a bridge to hold its cage. With a satin-brushed finish, the continents move across the central disc every 24 hours i.e. following the pace set by the flying tourbillon. In this landscape that changes as the hours go by, the tourbillon rotates around itself and the guilloché dial with remarkable accuracy. The eye is then drawn to the accelerated rolling of the Gyrolab balance wheel which, in addition to its balance spring hand-crafted in the workshops of the Manufacture, features the shape of a watch anchor, the symbol of Jaeger-LeCoultre.

A new interchangeable steel bracelet For the Geophysic True Second and Geophysic Universal Time, what’s new in 2017 comes down to one word: interchangeability. With the introduction of a new interchangeable bracelet, these two models are now available in a resolutely contemporary steel version and a sleek and elegant leather version. Composed of five satin-brushed and polished links, this new bracelet, ideal for going in the water, is highly flexible. The length of the bracelet can be extended up to five millimetres freeing the wrist for both ease of use and comfort especially during periods of extreme heat. Changing bracelets couldn't be simpler thanks to the lever system, which releases the bars in the blink of an eye, giving the watch a completely different look, whether the steel or the leather version.
