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.
