SIHH 2018: Jaeger-LeCoultre - Polaris Collection

Inspired by the iconic Memovox Polaris watch from 1968, Jaeger-LeCoultre has developed a new collection to join the brand’s existing pillars.

Rather than presenting a single homage to a historical reference, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris collection applies the spirit of the Memovox Polaris to a full range of timepieces: a three-hand automatic, a chronograph and a chronograph world time, as well as two models with a stronger vintage feel: the Polaris Date and the Polaris Memovox.


Comprised of an initial release of five models, with one limited edition paying tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Memovox watch, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris collection was designed with the ambition to redefine the sporty elegance with timepieces which combine in-house mechanical movements with a robust and dynamic aesthetic.

The dial architecture in the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris collection combines a mixture of finishing on three concentric circles: a Memovox Polaris-inspired centre with a sunray finish, graining on the outer circle with the hours and minutes, and an opaline finish on the rotating inner bezel.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre logo is applied, as are the classic Arabic numbers and the contemporary trapezoidal indexes. The hands are large and filled with Super-LumiNova for excellent visibility in low light.

The cases of the new timepieces feature brushed and hand-polished surfaces, with sharp, plunging lugs and thin, rounded bezels. The large crowns, emblematic of the 1968 model, have been redesigned for better grip. The exhibition backs of three pieces in this new collection show off the manufacture movements, complete with an oscillating weight featuring the Jaeger-LeCoultre logo.

A newly designed three-link metal bracelet with polished and brushed finished surfaces is ergonomic and comfortable. The straps are interchangeable for both alligator leather and calfskin. The latter is offered in both light and dark brown version with an aged leather patina.

We provide here an overview of the new collection.


Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Automatic

The Polaris Automatic introduces the collection, featuring the iconic two crowns, one for time setting and one for the inner rotating bezel. The inner rotating bezel speaks to the diving-inspired nature of this timepiece, simplifying the act of tracking elapsed time.


This sporty design is tempered by its finishing, resulting in beautiful dials with three treatments – sunray, grained and opaline. The watch features interchangeable straps with a new folding buckle. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Automatic also comes on a three-link bracelet that is all new for 2018.

Size: 41 mm, stainless steel
Movement: automatic mechanical movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 898/1
Power reserve: 40 hours
Functions: hours/minutes/seconds, rotating inner bezel

Water resistance: 100 metres / 660 feet
Price: Euro 6,850 / US$ 6,600


Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Chronograph in Steel 

The 42 mm Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Chronograph is the sportiest of the new line, equipped with a tachymeter bezel allowing the user to determine speed over a fixed distance.


The pushers have been redesigned for a better grip, and the thin bezel helps to open the dial for maximum readability. This new model offers sharp contrast so the chronograph subdials can be read quickly, complete with oversized triangular indices.

Size: 42 mm, stainless steel
Movement: automatic mechanical movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 751
Power reserve: 65 hours
Functions: hours/minutes/seconds, chronograph, tachymeter scale
Dial: black or ocean blue, with sunrayed, grained and opaline finishes

Price: starting from Euro 10,100 / US$ 10,000


Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Chronograph in Rose Gold 

This is the only Polaris model available in precious metal - in this case rose gold - with an anthracite dial and an oscillating weight in rose gold.

Size: 42 mm, rose gold
Movement: automatic mechanical movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 751
Power reserve: 65 hours
Functions: hours/minutes/seconds, chronograph, tachymeter scale
Dial: anthracite with sunrayed, grained and opaline finishes
Water resistance: 100 metres / 330 feet
Price: Euro 24,900 / US$ 24,500


Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Chronograph WT

Offering an in-house chronograph and the useful world time complication, this model not only features the two chronograph pushers, but it has an additional crown at 10 o’clock to control the rotating city disc and see the time in 23 other cities around the world.


World time watches can be a struggle to read, which is why the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Chronograph WT is a generous 44 mm, which enhances its readability. The watch is less than 13 mm thick and the case is titanium, a light yet highly resistant material that makes the model comfortable on the wrist, and has a warmer tint than steel.

Size: 44 mm, Titanium
Movement: automatic mechanical movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 752
Power reserve: 65 hours
Functions: hours/minutes/seconds, chronograph, worldtime
Dial: black or ocean blue with sunrayed, grained and opaline finishes
Water resistance: 100 metres / 330 feet
Price: Euro 14,700 / US$ 14,600


Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date

With this model, the link to the original Polaris from 1968 is stronger than ever. Like the original, this watch uses the same design codes - Vanilla Super-LumiNova, the triangle along with trapezoidal indices mixed with four Arabic numbers, a railway track for the minutes - and features a date at three o’clock.

The case for the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date features a glass box where the crystal is raised from the case, evidencing the vintage inspiration. Additionally, the case back is closed and features an engraving of a SCUBA diver, similar to the engraving that was found on the inner case back of the 1968 model.


The Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date uses the signature polished and brushed case and has the distinctive double crown: one for the time and one for the inner rotating bezel. It comes on a brand-new rubber strap with a Clous de Paris pattern and is also available on a new three-link bracelet.

Size: 42 mm, stainless steel
Movement: automatic mechanical movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 899/1
Power reserve: 38 hours
Functions: hours/minutes/seconds, date, rotating inner bezel
Dial: black with sunrayed, grained and opaline finishes
Water resistance: 200 metres / 660 feet
Price: on request


Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Memovox

Issued in a limited edition of 1,000 pieces, this model features the special alarm function made famous by the 1968 Memovox Polaris watch. This 50th anniversary timepiece has an iconic three-crown design: one for setting the alarm (top), one for the inner rotating bezel (middle) and one for setting the time (bottom). The vintage cues on the dial call to mind the 1968 original - vanilla Super-LumiNova, trapezoidal indices mixed with four Arabic numbers – and the triangle in the dial centre serving as the alarm indicator. Controlled by the alarm crown, the central disc turns to line up the triangle with the desired alarm time. 


The Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 956 features the striking mechanism with a gong, along with the central seconds and instant-jump date-change system. This calibre is a direct descendant of the first automatic alarm watch movement created by Jaeger-LeCoultre in the 1950s. Constantly improved, it still represents the ultimate in accuracy, robustness and reliability.

The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Memovox comes on a brand-new rubber strap with a new folding buckle and is water resistant to 200 meters.

Size: 42 mm, stainless steel
Movement: automatic mechanical movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 956
Power reserve: 44 hours
Functions: hours/minutes/seconds, alarm, date
Dial: black sunrayed, grained and opaline finishes
Water resistance: 200 metres / 660 feet
Price: Euro 13,100 / US$ 12,600
