Designed as everyday timepieces, the new Polaris collection draws its inspiration from an icon from Jaeger-LeCoultre’s past, but the modern touches built in bring these watches resolutely into the future.

Not just a simple homage to a historical reference, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris collection takes the spirit of Memovox Polaris and applies it to a full range of timepieces: a three-hand automatic, a chronograph and a chronograph world time, as well as two models with a stronger vintage feel: the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Memovox.

All of the Polaris timepieces are powered by Jaeger-LeCoultre manufacture movements. Here they are, in detail.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Automatic

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Automatic introduces the collection, featuring the iconic two crown design, one for time setting and the other for the inner rotating bezel, unique to the Polaris. The inner rotating bezel is a nod to the diving-inspired nature of this timepiece.

The sporty design is counter-balanced by its elegant finishing, resulting in beautiful dials with three treatments — sunray, grained and opaline.

Technical Specifications:

  • Size: 41mm, stainless steel
  • Movement: automatic mechanical movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 898/1
  • Power reserve: 40 hours
  • Functions: hours/minutes/seconds, rotating inner bezel

Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Chronograph WT

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Chronograph WT (World Time) not only features the two chronograph pushers, but it has an additional crown at 10 o’clock to control the rotating city disc. All you need to do is set this disc to the city you are in, and you can immediately see the time in 23 other cities around the world.

World time watches can be a challenge to read, so Jaeger-LeCoultre gave the Polaris Chronograph WT a generous case size — 44mm, enhancing its readability. Despite its size, the watch is very light, as the case is titanium.

Technical Specifications:

  • Size: 44mm, Titanium
  • Movement: automatic mechanical movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 752
  • Power reserve: 65 hours
  • Functions: hours/minutes/seconds, chronograph, worldtime
  • Dial: black or ocean blue with sunrayed, grained and opaline finishes
  • Water resistance: 100m

Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date watch uses the same design codes as the original Polaris from 1968 — Vanilla Super-LumiNova™*, the triangle along with trapezoidal indices mixed with four Arabic numbers, a railway track for the minutes — and features a date at three o’clock.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date uses a glass box sapphire crystal, and the case back is closed and features an engraving of a SCUBA diver, similar to the engraving that was found on the inner case back of the original 1968 model.

A serious sports watch, this surprisingly elegant timepiece is water resistant to 200 meters.

Technical Specifications:

  • Size: 42mm, stainless steel
  • Movement: automatic mechanical movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 899/1
  • Power reserve: 38 hours
  • Functions: hours/minutes/seconds, date, rotating inner bezel
  • Dial: black with sunrayed, grained and opaline finishes
  • Water resistance: 200m

Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Memovox

Issued in a limited edition of 1,000 pieces, this model features the special alarm function made famous by the 1968 Memovox Polaris watch. The vintage cues on the dial – Vanilla Super-LumiNova, trapezoidal indices mixed with four Arabic numbers and the triangle in the dial center serving as the alarm indicator – are directly inspired by the 1968 version.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 956 is a descendant of the first automatic alarm watch movement created by Jaeger-LeCoultre in the 1950s and features the striking mechanism with a gong, along with the central seconds and instant-jump date-change system.

The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Memovox comes on a brand-new rubber strap with a new folding buckle and is water resistant to 200 meters.

Technical Specifications:

  • Size: 42mm, stainless steel
  • Movement: automatic mechanical movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 956
  • Power reserve: 44 hours
  • Functions: hours/minutes/seconds, alarm, date
  • Dial: black sunrayed, grained and opaline finishes
