Jaeger Lecoultre Dive Watches
id you know the Master Compressor was dead?! Now that I have your attention, let me begin this review with the lines I originally wrote, just before visiting JLC’s official website to check what was up (or down…) in their men’s section. Before that shocking news, this is how I originally wanted to start: after all that palaver here, but also here, I decided to put my money where my mouth is and buy myself a Jaeger-LeCoultre that I not only liked, but that was of the breed I have been seeing killed off from the brand’s identity in recent years.
As women can be judged by their handbags, thus men can be judged by their watches. In this anything-but-ordinary election cycle, we look back at the timepiece styles of U.S. presidents to see what’s changed and how our country’s leaders’ personal styles stack up. Since 1789, every American leader has carried or worn a watch of some kind.
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln all carried pocket watches, to be sure, as that was the fashion.
Probably a mechanical alarm don't seem like the most useful watch complication when your iPhone and Amazon Echo can take care of getting you to that morning meeting on time with a wet finger, whereas to plenty of us there's something undeniably charming about a buzzing mechanical timepiece. A particularly handsome alarm watch is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox, which took on many shapes and sizes over the years. Here are a few versions to know right now.
If your plan was to spend less money this year on watches, probably you want to skip this article. Most mechanical dive watches are priced under $10,000 (although the iconic Rolex Deepsea, Sea-Dweller, and Submariner watches, as well as many Blancpain Fifty Fathoms models, might go for a bit more now), however there are several types of fascinating dive watches that go way beyond that.
Primordially released in 2012, the Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX 7 is part of Jaeger-LeCoultre's on going relationship in making timepieces in partnership with automobile maker Aston Martin. From my point of view, this is one of the few car/watch relationships that has been successful yet, in this case, remains absolutely niche. What I love about Jaeger-LeCoultre is the greatly diversity of the brand according to not only their designs and product lines, but also in the movements they offer.
“The back of the watch is where the beauty lies,” said Ian Chang as he raised a GMT 6 watch by Kari Voutilainen that Mr. Chang had helped personalize, choosing its distinctive red hands. “The back is the first thing I look at. It’s a work of art.”Turning the watch over, he marveled at the balance springs and fingered the hand-polished edges.
