Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving Navy SEALs

By TLex Here's a first look at JLC's new Master Compressor Diving Navy SEALs series. There are three watches in total. I really like what I see, the black bezels really give the watch a whole new look. The Diving Chronograph GMT is now on my most wanted list!

MC DIVING Alarm Navy SEALs
(Limited series of 1500 in grade 5 titanium)



From JLC In 1959, Jaeger-LeCoultre presented the first diver’s watch with alarm, the Memovox Deep Sea. 50 years later, the Manufacture reintroduces this complication in a timepiece created in partnership with the United States Navy SEALs. Equipped with an alarm striking on a suspended gong, its alarm function reminds divers of when they will need to return to the surfaces, while its ceramic bezel echoes that of the Memovox Deep Sea. Its case - capable of withstanding extreme pressure - and its optimal underwater readability make it a genuine professional instrument.

(Limited series of 1500 in grade 5 titanium)






Created in partnership with the United States Navy SEALs, the concept and the design of this model were directly inspired by the professional equipment of this elite corps of the United States armed forces. One of the rare chronographs able to withstand water pressure down to 1000 metres – equivalent to the weight of a small car – this timepiece that remains perfectly readable under water is a genuine professional instrument. In addition to the date that appears in a window between the 4 and 5 o’clock hour-markers, its mechanical movement also drives a GMT dual time-zone display.

MC DIVING Pro Geographic Navy SEALs (Limited series of 300 in 18-carat pink gold)



A technical masterpiece, this timepiece is equipped with a mechanical depth gauge concealed inside a compression chamber positioned on the left-hand outer side of the case. Its movement also powers a multiple time-zone indication, an exceptional feature in a diver’s watch. By simply positioning a city representing the chosen time zone in a window at 6 o’clock instantly displays the time there in a subdial at 9 o’clock. The date is shown in an aperture at 3 o’clock, while the movement operating indicator appears in the lower part of the dial.
