At this year’s Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched its new series of watches, Geophysical Observatory watches. At first glance, this new series of watches is so similar to the Jaeger-LeCoultre series, but the watch is completely new in terms of movement and details. Today, the watch home is for everyone. Bringing Jaeger-LeCoultre’s latest Geophysical Observatory® Real Steel Second Hand Watch, the official watch model is 8018420.
This geophysical chronometer watch is really a bright spot in this year’s Hong Kong Watch Fair. I believe we all know about the movement manufacturing technology of Jaeger-LeCoultre. One of the several brands, this year also made a lot of technical updates on the watch movement, I will tell you later.
Simple big three pin design
The watch uses a 39.6 mm diameter design. At first glance, there seems to be nothing special. The simple three-pin design. As an entry-level watch, Jaeger-LeCoultre spent a lot of energy on this entry-level watch. Compared with the behavior of many brands on high-complex watches, I think that the intention of an entry-level model is the minimum attitude of a brand and also respect for consumers.
The crown of the watch, from the side we can see that the new geophysical astronomical watch is a bit thicker than the master series, and it is more textured to wear. It is necessary to explain to you that the watch case is used The design is brushed, and the lugs are polished. This design is more oily.
With alligator strap
The watch strap uses a black alligator leather strap, which is soft and comfortable. The buckle is made of stainless steel with a double folding buckle, and the classic Jaeger-LeCoultre logo is engraved on the buckle.
The lugs of the watch are not connected to the case with a smooth arc, conveying a bold and confident attitude. The sides of the lugs are polished to accentuate the smooth contours. The bezel and the details of the case and lugs are cleverly superimposed, which also makes the overall aesthetic of the watch smoother and more gorgeous.
The watch uses classic hands and linear hour markers to interpret modern aesthetics while also inheriting the brand’s historical characteristics. At 3 o’clock, there is a date display window. The ‘True Second’ logo at 6 o’clock is also a major feature of the watch. The second hand of this mechanical watch will not slide smoothly on the dial. , But a beat on the dial like a quartz watch.
Watch with 770 automatic movement
Let’s talk about the movement of the watch. This watch is equipped with a new watch movement launched by Jaeger-LeCoultre, the 770 automatic winding movement, which is the most senior watchmaker in the research and development department of the Grand Workshop. R & D, their professional knowledge and rich imagination promote their continuous innovation. The oscillating weight of the watch is unique. The oscillating weight is made of a single piece of pure gold, which is hollowed out with Jaeger-LeCoultre’s signature pallet fork pattern, while echoing the shape of the movement pallet fork. Compared with the traditional oscillating weight, connoisseurs can appreciate the beauty of the movement when the oscillating weight is swinging. The theoretical error of this movement is between plus and minus two, and precision can be said to kill many brands.
We all know that the accuracy of the watch is closely related to the escapement of the watch. This 770 automatic movement uses this Gyrolab balance. The unique design of the non-circular structure reduces air resistance. Gyrolab brings a major breakthrough to watch accuracy, and the Geophysic watch series is the first watch series to use this technology.
Summary: This is a brand new watch series from Jaeger-LeCoultre. I would like to repeat that this is an entry-level watch from Jaeger-LeCoultre. The domestic public price is 64,000 yuan and the Hong Kong public price is 68,000 yuan. Friends can book now, I heard that Hong Kong has already booked.
