Historic Inspiration for the man of today
The Polaris Collection by Jaeger-LeCoultre was inspired by the Memovox Polaris of 1968, an icon of the Grande Maison. Yet it offers much more than a tribute to an historic model. Instead, the collection captures the spirit of the Memovox Polaris and reinterprets it.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris integrates the extraordinary craftsmanship of the manufacturer, which produces all mechanical movements under the one roof, with robustness, aesthetic design, and sporting elegance to create a symbol of an active lifestyle.
The combination of athleticism and elegance
The Polaris Collection features an impressive, athletic design and the air of elegance characteristic of the Grande Maison. The dials in black, blue, and anthracite gray emphasize the masculine flair with a touch of nonchalance. Thanks to the Super-LumiNova® coating on the hour markers, digits, and hands, the watch’s functionality can also be used superbly in the dark. Two models have this coating in a vanilla tone, resulting in a more vintage style reminiscent of the tritium of the original Memovox Polaris.
The aesthetic codes
The dial draws on three different finishes for its embellishment, featuring a sunburst finish in the center, graining on the perimeter for the hours and minutes track, and an opaline finish for the rotating inner bezel. The case combines surfaces that are brushed and hand-polished. The stainless steel bracelet with a finish varying between polished and brushed was specially designed to provide the perfect addition to the case’s design.
Useful functions for every day
Everyday companions that just as easily accompany their wearer on adventures too, the models in the Polaris Collection were designed with useful functions such as a date display, alarm, chronograph, and world time chronograph. All models are ultra-reliable and have undergone the “1,000 Hours Control” test. The models are water-resistant up to 100 or 200 meters and available with a metal bracelet or rubber, alligator leather, or calf leather strap. The leather straps are easy to swap without tools thanks to a fast interchangeability system.
