Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Vintage Chronograph
A week left until the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH 2012
), and the famous watch manufacturer - Jaeger-LeCoultre
has been going off the charts . It is official! Jaeger-LeCoultre has just unveiled a followup to 2011's most successful Dive Watch, the Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea
. Behold the Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Vintage Chronograph, the folks over at Purists
got an exclusive preview of this monster of a chronograph dive watch. This 40.5 mm diameter watch runs on Jaeger's own in-house automatic movement Calibre 751G, that houses the chronograph counters for hours and minutes at the 9 and 3 o'clock position along with its central seconds hand. The case is made out of steel with a plexi watch glass, in matte black dial, and tropic superluminova hands that is water resistant up to 10 bars with 65 hour power reserve. Besides the iconic look of the watch, the piece also stayed true to its heritage from Jaeger's Deep Sea line by strapping it with the same embossed calf skin leather strap. The entire piece is a thing of beauty! Rarely would you see a dive watch complicated with one of the most coveted complication in a wrist watch - a chronograph. Whether you're fan of Deep Sea or not, you have to admit that this thing is a clear winner for any dive fans!
No price has yet been announced but this piece here will not be a limited edition, whether that is a good thing or not depends entirely on how you view watch collecting.
