SIHH 2018 Jaeger-leCoultre Polaris​
All indexes and numbers on the dial are filled with SuperLuminova​ which results in terrific readings in the dark

Don’t crack under pressure!

Stephane Belmont doesn’t crack under pressure when all digital support systems failed during his presentation @ Sihh 2018. That is exactly how a director of marketing and creation of maybe the most appreciated mechanical manufacturer should react. Real people and real watches!

Finally when the technology kicked in again the focus was on the 2018 Jaeger-leCoultre Polaris. Inspired on the iconic 1968 Memovox Polaris the new Polaris line offers 5 new models and between the models several line extensions. For example the in-house caliber 751 column wheel chronograph with 65 hours power reserve is available with different coloured dials like black and blue and different straps. Calf leather, alligator and steel bracelet. But more important, the legacy of iconic dashboard instruments in classic cars has inspired the designers to a add a tachymeter on the inside outer dial. The good old sport of measuring the exact speed of your car has not be forgotten!

The author 0024 Editorial Team

When we started publishing our first high-end watch magazine in 1999, we had only one intention: increasing the popularity of high-quality mechanical watches. Now, many years later, this has not changed at all. In 2017 we have reinvented ourselves to serve our readers in a different and better way. Starting in 2017, the new 0024 is again better equipped to interact with the changing world of high-end watches. The new 0024 HORLOGES magazine (written in Dutch) will be at least a 200 pager: that’s twice the volume of our magazine in the old days.
