The Polo Masters Geneva 2017 final will be played tomorrow in Veytay-Mies (Switzerland). On the occasion of this tournament, Jaeger-LeCoultre met three polo players. After David Amar and Edouard Pan, Chris Kiesel, playing on team Cardo at Polo Masters Geneva 2017, answers three questions about the Reverso and the polo tournament.
The overall look is certainly vintage-inspired, but much like a number of the new-vintage layouts for the Reverso, these sector dial models stand on their own and the chronograph has a mass appeal that is hard to contend with. Developed by JLC’s automatic 751G, this 4Hz column wheel chronograph movement sports 2 barrels to offer a power reserve of 65 hours.Last but certainly not least, we find my favorite of this sector dial trio, the Jaeger Lecoultre Watches On Ebay Replica Master Geographic (ref 1428530). The second timezone is selected using a town disk at six along with the crown in 10. In case you’ve ever used this complication you will know it is a practical and easy-to-manage GMT function that borrows just enough from a planet timer to be greater than your casual GMT.The dial layout is much more asymmetrical (using the offset am/pm indication), however I believe this is the coolest of the 3 models. The sector dial mixes nicely with the complication, and that I feel the GMT is only the perfect functionality for a well-rounded everyday watch. The other and all the Geographic complication is that it works both when shifting time zones for travel, or checking other time zones when linking with coworkers or friends.Those that know JLC’s offerings understand that they have a lot of attractively made watches under $10,000. So, while the price point of those sector dial variations is attractive (especially against the backdrop of SIHH), the real achievement here is the available sizing and the designs which are both beautiful and distinctive among their siblings. While I am certain that a few will take umbrage with the lack of lume or the exceptionally vintage-inspired hand selection, the layout works so well when seen as a whole.
