Jaeger-LeCoultre welcome you to join them in Mies (Switzerland) on Sunday 27 August 2017 for the final of the Jaeger‑LeCoultre Polo Masters. In the meanwhile, David Amar answersed three questions about the Reverso watches and the polo tournament.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Time is, as its name indicates, a world timer and also to the best of my understanding, it is the only world timer available now which also has a deadbeat seconds hand. For those unsure of how it works, a world timer is a drawback which lets the wearer to tell the time in just about any region of the planet with the support of the city disk and the 24-hour disk. The exact math requires a small learning curve and a few general understanding, but it is a rather intuitive system.A deadbeat seconds is a bit more uncommon, so far as mechanical complications proceed. The simplest way to describe it is to imagine the seconds hand behaving exactly the same manner as it may on a quartz watch — a distinct tick for each second. Also known as a real seconds drawback, this was historically (much before the advent of quartz) prized by observe owners as it assisted them tell time precisely to the second. Considering that the mechanical sophistication in designing a true seconds motion along with the attendant premium in cost, it is not completely a surprise that the negative is uncommon. In addition to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Geophysic watches, those that I can think of immediately are the Habring2 Erwin and the Gr?nefeld One Hertz.An intriguing factoid (and one that Ariel is fond of replicating) is that the caliber 772 motion at the Geophysic Universal Time has just one component less than the movement at the time-only Geophysic True Second, the caliber 770. That amount is 274. I’m not entirely certain how Jaeger-LeCoultre managed to add a world timer complication but reduce the entire quantity of parts by you, but they have.The grade 772 is also equipped with the brand’s proprietary Gyrolab equilibrium. The Gyrolab equilibrium was made to be more aerodynamic and also to improve rate keeping accuracy with time. The caliber 772 beats at 4Hz and provides 40 hours of power reserve.
