This interesting piece is clearly aimed at collectors who are aware of LeCoultre’s historic milestones, such as the original from the 1960s. At that time, the company had already found a lot of success and gained plenty experience with mechanical alarm wristwatches. However, they went even further and created a diving watch with an alarm to remind the diver when they had to resurface. This modern interpretation harkens back to one of the most interesting models from 1968 and offers vintage charm with the strengths of modern engineering.

It’s not the usual Rolex Submariner clone but rather a truly special sports watch. With a well-filled tool box – including an automatic movement, date display, 200-meter water resistance, and of course the mechanical alarm – you get all you need and a bit more. Jaeger-LeCoultre may be most famous for the elegant Reverso and some of their hyper complicated pieces like the Gyrotourbillon, but their watches for watch lovers like this deserve the same attention.

  • Great homage to a legendary vintage watch from Jaeger-LeCoultre’s impressive heritage
  • Diver’s watch with mechanical alarm function
  • Complicated movement fully assembled by the talented watchmakers in Le Sentier

Many people have been waiting for a clean, straightforward sports chronograph from Jaeger for a long time. The Polaris chronograph could be the answer to that problem. Even though the historic Polaris isn’t linked to stopwatches, Jaeger knows their customers well and chronographs are still by far the most popular watch complication (not counting date displays).

The new Polaris Chronograph is a no-nonsense piece that could be your perfect everyday companion. Its design is refreshingly simple with a few interesting details. The pushers have a classic rectangular shape. There’s no running seconds but just two symmetric subdials for the counting of minutes and hours. Besides a classic black dial, it’s also available in a stylish blue, which shines best in contrast with the dark brown calf leather strap. For a good view of the inner workings of the watch, there’s also a sapphire glass case back.

  • Clean, functional sports chronograph, even though it’s part of a vintage-inspired collection
  • Nicely finished Jaeger-LeCoultre in-house movement
  • Available in steel with black or blue dial and red gold with grey dial
