Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving Chronograph GMT Navy SEALs Watch
Do you remember an older model from 2011, the Jae-LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving Chronograph GMT Navy SEALs Watch? It’s really a watch with a bold and aggressive look.
On this watch, the hands and hour markers are bold and provide with an advanced of contrast in comparison towards the dial. There’s thick and vibrant lume all around the dial. The second time-zone hand is non-lumed. This really is a little of the trade-off design decision really. Not luming it enables so that it is visible, although not annoying when looking at time. I must state that overall I favor this kind of second time zone hand integration instead of one which aesthetically competes using the primary hour hand.
What JLC did was brush the top hand to provide excellent visibility when you’re searching for it -although it doesn’t get in the manner when you wish to simply consider the time. Returning towards the lume as it were, you’ll discover that JLC uses different colors of lume for that hour and minute hand to boost visibility is murky conditions.
Within the dial is definitely an AR covered domed sapphire crystal. There’s obviously glare since it is domed, although not much, and legibility is definitely high. Additionally towards the 12 hour chronograph is really a second time-zone function. I do not personally make use of the term GMT because that hand is really a 12 hour, versus 24 hour hand. Though you’ll notice within the title from the watch that Jaeger does refer to it as a “GMT” watch.
There’s a neat little feature that informs you whether it’s AM or PM within the second time zone. This is accomplished with small day/night indicator window underneath the Jaeger-LeCoultre logo design under 12 o’clock. Nice system right? Overall the timepiece has got the time, two timezones, the date, and chronograph. Lots of healthy functionality here, and additionally to as being a good sports watch, it’s a great traveler’s watch.
Within the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving Chronograph GMT Navy Closes is really a Jaeger-LeCoultre in-house made and designed caliber 757 automatic movement. The timepiece consists of two barrels with 65 hrs of power reserve also it works at 28,800 bph. The more power reserve is a fairly feature and that I found it both accurate and simple to function. On the other hand, it’s a Jaeger-LeCoultre movement. Being a naturally fancy tool watch the Master Compressor Diving Chronograph GMT Navy Closes doesn’t dissatisfy. Besides the special Navy Closes engraved caseback, I did not find myself ever taking into consideration the Navy Closes connection greatly.
Additionally towards the black and whitened tones JLC adds yellow like a trim color. The thing is it on the minute scale around the flange ring, in the tip from the chronograph seconds hands, as well as on the strap. Although this is an excellent diver watch, the strap is intended for additional terrestrial use. I suggest using something similar to a rubber strap if you are planning to become by using this piece underwater.
The strap around the watch is fairly clever and increased on me rapidly. Jaeger-LeCoultre designed it from the couple of materials and colours. The interior lining is yellow as the outdoors is black. The majority of the strap is calfskin leather. I love the way the strap finishes have share with them, but they are also made to curve using the form of the case.
Cost is all about $13,400 with this Jaeger-LeCoultre reference 178T471 watch.
