Jaeger-LeCoultre pays tribute to this legendary timepiece presenting a re-issue of the original model, the Geophysic 1958, available in three limited editions in stainless steel, rose gold or platinum.
|The original Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic model – 1958|
While maintaining the original lines and distinctive style, the new Geophysic 1958 updates the case size to 38.5mm, compared to the original model’s 35mm.
The new Geophysic 1958 houses the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 898/1 featuring a stop second for a more accurate time-setting. This reliable movement provides also a power reserve of 43 hours when fully wound.
A soft iron inner case is used to protect the watch against magnetic fields. This is the reason, why the movement and features instead a solid case-back with engraved “J” and “L” initials on a globe criss-crossed by latitude and longitude lines. The case is water-resistant to 100 metres.
The refined white grained dial features dagger-shaped hands with vintage coloured luminescent coating, also used for the lume dots around the vertical band inside the dial. The steel and rose gold versions have large 3, 6, 9, and 12 arabic numerals to interrupt the applied baton hours markers while the platinum model has a slightly different dial with 6 and 12 arabic numerals only.
Each version of the Geophysic comes fitted with an alligator leather strap; black for the steel model, chocolate brown for the pink gold and blue for the platinum model.
