New for SIHH 2017, Jaeger-LeCoultre has introduced the latest in their Geophysic collection the Geophysic Tourbillon UTC. This new timepiece features a world timer with the brand’s patented Gyrolab balance-equipped tourbillon and marks the first time that a flying tourbillon and a world timer have been combined in one watch. The pioneering watch is also no slouch in the design department thanks to a blue lacquered guilloche dial that features the domed world map detail.
The 43.5mm watch case is made of solid platinum and contains the Jaeger-LeCoultre caliber 948, an automatic movement with a solid 22-carat pink gold winding rotor and a 48-hour power reserve. 375 components comprise it, 42 of which are jewels. The Gyrolab – a signature of the Geophysic collection is noted for its rounded h-shape which offers a higher efficiency compared to the usual circular balance wheel.
With only 100 pieces created, there will be considerable buzz for this watch. We’ll keep you updated on the price.
