Launched in 2018, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date drew inspiration from the 1968 Memovox Polaris, with its alarm function not only one of the most popular Polaris models of all time but also one of the most sought-after diver’s watches in history. While this edition was launched with a black dial, the latest offspring of the watch family is equipped with a lacquered, deep green double-gradient dial that is a feast for the eyes.
A harmonious mix of opaline, grained and sunray surfaces clearly defines the key dial segments, from the mobile inner bezel ring to the minute track. The color gradient ranges from light olive to verdant rainforest, taking on different shades depending on the angle of reflected light. A coat of translucent lacquer adds mesmerizing depth and makes for a magnificent backdrop for the vanilla-tinted luminescent indexes and numbers.
The Polaris Date is driven by the self-winding caliber 899 that ticks inside the 42mm stainless-steel case which is water-resistant to 200 meters. This genuine caliber amasses a power reserve of 70 hours and can be admired through the sapphire case back.
Equipped with a green rubber strap, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date retails for $9,200.
