Jaeger-LeCoultre - Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time

Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time

With this timepiece, Jaeger-LeCoultre has introduced for the first time a flying tourbillon in a watch allowing the time in twenty-four cities around the world to be read simultaneously.

The first Geophysic watch was created in 1958 by Jaeger-LeCoultre in honour of the International Geophysical Year. In 2015, the Manufacture in the Vallée de Joux launched the Geophysic collection, with several models combining powerful watchmaking expertise with a classic, timeless aesthetic.

This line has now been reinterpreted reinforcing its original qualities - a generously dimensioned case, easily legible functions, visible luminescent hands, the hightech Gyrolab balance wheel, etc - and in 2017 Jaeger-LeCoultre unveils the Geophysic True Second, the Geophysic Universal Time and the Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time watch, available in a limited series of 100 pieces. With this timepiece, Jaeger-LeCoultre has introduced for the first time in its history a flying tourbillon in a watch allowing the time in twenty-four cities around the world to be read simultaneously.

With its 43.5 mm platinum case, the Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time asserts itself as the most exclusive piece in the eponymous collection and offers exceptional readability and operating.

Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time

The Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time offers a 360-degree view of the world under the dome of its sapphire crystal. In this majestic planisphere, the eye is drawn to the flying tourbillon, which appears to float in space with the absence of a bridge to hold its cage. The lightly convex side view of the dial recalls the shape of a globe. On the intense blue lacquered ocean, small spirals form waves amplifying the impression of relief and depth that the watch creates when viewed from above. With a satin-brushed finish, the continents move across the central disc every 24 hours i.e. following the pace set by the flying tourbillon. In this landscape that changes as the hours go by, the tourbillon rotates around itself and the guilloché dial with remarkable accuracy. The Gyrolab balance wheel - with its balance spring hand-crafted in the workshops of the Manufacture - features the shape of a watch anchor, the symbol of Jaeger LeCoultre.

Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time
With constant readability thanks to the luminescent material, which constitutes the points on the flange of the dial and the hands, the Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time watch is easily set with a single crown. The automatic mechanical movement Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 948, which offers a 48-hour power reserve, can be admired through the sapphire crystal case-back. Outshining the rubies and blued screws, the solid gold monobloc oscillating weight reveals Jaeger-LeCoultre’s two characteristic initials through the heart of its half-sphere.
The Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time is fitted with a blue alligator strap, secured with a folding buckle in white gold.
