SIHH news, Jaeger-leCoultre
Don’t crack under pressure!
Stephane Belmont doesn’t crack under pressure when all digital support systems failed during his presentation @ Sihh 2018. That is exactly how a director of marketing and creation of maybe the most appreciated mechanical manufacturer should react. Real people and real watches!
Finally when the technology kicked in again the focus was on the 2018 Jaeger-leCoultre Polaris. Inspired on the iconic 1968 Memovox Polaris the new Polaris line offers 5 new models and between the models several line extensions. For example the in-house caliber 751 column wheel chronograph with 65 hours power reserve is available with different coloured dials like black and blue and different straps. Calf leather, alligator and steel bracelet. But more important, the legacy of iconic dashboard instruments in classic cars has inspired the designers to a add a tachymeter on the inside outer dial. The good old sport of measuring the exact speed of your car has not be forgotten!
