For 2018 JLC have created a brand-new Polaris collection which includes: an auto, a DATE, a CHRONO and a special MEMOVOX edition with an alarm.

Taking its inspiration from the 1968 Memovox Polaris, the new JLC Polaris Automatic in steel is equipped with either a leather band or steel bracelet, and is water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date is finished in a sporty, casual style; it boasts a delicate case-band integrated with short lugs. The elongated numerals and hour markers, as well as the baton hands, are coated with a luminescent finish.

Basic spec. includes: a 41mm by 11.2mm Stainless steel case which is water-resistance to 10 ATM – (so it would seem that the 100m WR is due to the slimmer style of this model whereas others in the collection get 200m)

Power comes from an automatic, self-winding, Cal. 898E/1, single Barrel with 28800 vph.

It has a JLC’s classic compressor-style case with Twin-Crowns, positioned at 2 o'clock and 4 o'clock, one to turn the rehaut and one for adjusting the time and winding the movement.

The watch’s sleek dial, is available in black, grey or in different grades of blue with brushed-polished finish of the case and readability of the luminescent coating make the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Automatic with a steel strap or leather band.

MSRPS 6300USD (leather) – 7600USD (steel)
