If you’re hunting in the $5,000 to $10,000 range and are searching for an everyday watch from a fantastic brand with a distinctive yet classic charm, any one of those three will likely fit the bill. The Jaeger Lecoultre The Watch Snob Replica Master Control Date will retail for a cost of $5,700 USD, together with the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Chronograph selling for $8,000, and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Geographic claiming $9400. Lean pickings or not, these industry dial Master models from JLC were easily some of my favourite new versions exhibited at SIHH and will likely prove to be very popular in the coming months.One of the most visually striking watches of SIHH 2017 was the very first “universal time tourbillon” by Korean Jaeger-LeCoultre, and it is predictably daring and really quite expensive. Our David explained how this “top notch” Geophysic built on the contemporary retro-inspired collection of watches which will be, in turn, based on a variety of Jaeger-LeCoultre watches from the 1950s. Contrary to the standard collection of Geophysic watches with their “true second” (dead-beat) ticking seconds hands, the 2017 Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Time Tourbillon unites a world-time complication with an “orbital” flying tourbillon – in a rather visually magnificent manner.While the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Time Tourbillon watch is neat-looking in images, you need to observe this watch in operation to love it. First, there’s the ritzy solid-platinum situation that’s 43.5mm broad. It’s comfortable on the wrist and also obviously more eye-catching than most of the rest of the Geophysic collection – particularly the three-hand models.
