Renowned Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches

Certainly, Vacheron Constantin’s tribute to the decade that style decided got most things right – its all-new Fifty-six collection – wasn’t alone in recognising the continuing allure of strong, practical timepieces with a hint of a past: Jaeger-LeCoultre, unveiled its reimagining of the Memovox Polaris from 1968, as an entirely new collection, embracing automatic, chronograph, alarm, and world-time models, housed in steel (and in the case of the world timer, pink gold) cases.

Measuring between 40mm and 42mm in diameter, each iteration comes with retro-style box-crystal sapphires, the Memovox’s characteristic off-centred crowns, three-part dial designs and a high class, dual-finished cases.Montblanc, under the creative guidance of Davide Cerrato is upscaling its watches once more, with a range of motor sport inspired chronographs as well as a tribute to the 160th anniversary of its Villeret-based Minerva manufacture with a one-of-a-kind world-timer.Renowned for its pocket watches, Minerva has also been harnessed to create a monopusher chronograph complete with 24-hour dial, integrated compass and super-light titanium case. And with a pulsation scale inscribed on the bezel with which to calculate one’s heart rate after particularly strenuous exertions, it’s safe to call it the perfect analogue ‘smart watch’ for the gentleman explorer.
