Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic

The first Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysics was launched in honour of the International Geophysical Year in 1958 – an effort put forth by 67 different nations to boost scientific exploration in the field of geophysics. It goes without saying that the JLC Geophysic is an exceptionally precise watch that comes equipped with resistance to magnetic fields and interference. The Geophysics pays tribute to the scientific community and is the perfect companion for those venturing to new heights.

The genesis of Geophysic

The geophysical chronometer from Jaeger-LeCoultre

The period between June 1957 and December 1958 was devoted to geophysics. As part of the “International Geophysical Year”, scientists from around the world devoted themselves to the exploration of our solar system and previously undiscovered parts of the earth. Suitably, Jaeger-LeCoultre decided to launch a geophysical chronometer expected to function in the most unfavourable of environments. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic can defy magnetic fields, water pressure, and strong shocks, and therefore, offers reliability in every situation. The chronometer was evidently inspired by innovation and the desire to discover uncharted territories.

The 2014 launch of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic 1958 is reminiscent of its vintage predecessor – both in terms properties and design. It is a timepiece that is aimed at scientists, adventurers, and watch enthusiasts. The Geophysic impressed with the unwavering strength of its movement as well as its classic functional design and the high quality of the materials used. The latest version of the Geophysic has been slightly modified and adapted to the preferences of the zeitgeist.

Special features of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic 1958

A watch of timeless elegance and unique resilience

At the heart of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysics 1958 beats the extraordinarily precise calibre 898/I – a self-winding movement that ensures maximum precision. The movement features advancements such as a hacking seconds mechanism, special Spyr gears for smooth torque transition in the gear train, and a balance with micro screws. Thanks to the kif shock protection, the JLC Geophysic remains safeguarded against unprecedented jolts. The anti-magnetic cage inside the watchcase protects the movement from magnetic fields. Furthermore, the Geophysic 1958 gains points in robustness with a water resistance of up to 100 metres (10 bar).

The JLC Geophysic 1958 does not only impress with technical characteristics, but also with functional aesthetics. Both versions of the Geophysic feature a dial with a clear-cut design. Distinctive elements of the watch include large Arabic numerals at the poles of the watch face along with large indices comprised of gold or silver. The watch is equipped with luminous sword hands and fitted against a light dial, making for perfect legibility. Further highlighting the design of the watch is the elegant round form of the case, which, depending on the model, is composed of high quality rose gold or stainless steel. The watch is paired with a brown or black alligator leather strap.

A watch for every occasion

For researchers and life adventurers

The two new JLC Geophysic models revive the spirit of the original Geophysic timepiece from 1958 yet inspire with the latest technology from the 21st century. Originally, the Jaeger-LeCoultre was developed for explorers and adventurers who wanted to be able to wear and utilise their timepieces in harsh environments. Thanks to the technical finesse of the chronometer, it can be worn anywhere and used in various situations. Whether exploring the terrain of the harsh North or South poles where strong magnetic forces prevail, or exploring the depths of the great aquatic world where great pressures conquer, the JLC Geophysic keeps ticking under the harshest of external influences.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic 1958 continually builds a following in the field of scientific research and advancement. The timepiece proves to be a reliable companion regardless of external forces. The refined technology and robust elements of the watch are complemented by a universal design. Watch enthusiasts searching for an everyday timepiece that can be appropriately worn in a diverse range of conditions should definitely opt for the Jaeger-LeCoultre 1958 Geophysic.
