Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new watch takes after Polo.
The new model, entirely in keeping with its historical ascendance of polo, vividly evokes the finest hours of Art Deco. Its close embrace of the wrist is made possible by its extremely slender 7.3 mm case which incorporates the complex parts of the swiveling mechanism as well as a movement measuring just 2.95mm thin.
The eye naturally lingers on the pleasing contrasts between the glowing chocolate shade of the watch face and the pink gold of the case, including the traditional gadroons framing the dial. This is further underscored by the reinterpretation of the aesthetic principles governing the original.
Delivered along with each watch, the strap made in the Casa Fagliano workshops is distinguished by its elegant suppleness and hand-made mode of production that makes it truly one of a kind.
