Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Master Compressor Diving Pro Geographic
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s history in dive watches stretches back to 1959, when it created the world’s first dive watch with an alarm that could be set to signal the end of elapsed dive time, named the Memovox Deep Sea. Then, in 2007, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched a new dive watch that, again, catapulted the manufacture to leading position in mechanical dive watches: the Master Compressor Diving Pro Geographic.
With this watch, your eyes are naturally drawn to the left-hand side of the titanic 46.3 mm case, where the pressure-sensing device for measuring depth is placed. What Jaeger-LeCoultre refers to as the watch’s membrane comprises 24 elements, and represents 1,500 hours of research and development.
The pressure contracting membrane is innately connected to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s history. One of the brand’s most famous innovations is the Atmos clock, that requires no winding and which derives energy purely from tiny variations in environmental temperature or pressure.
