Hands-On Review: Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving Chronograph

http://www.thewatchbox.com Jaeger-LeCoultre's Master Compressor Diving Chronograph ranks among the finest dive watches available at any price. Ease of use, high legibility, and outstanding value are the hallmarks of JLC's sports watches, and this Diving Chronograph is no exception. Its in-house movement operates with the precision and tactile pusher quality that characterizes the best chronographs from the likes of Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Lange - all noted specialists of the complication. Ceramic winding-rotor bearings require no lubrication or maintenance; high-efficiency Spyr gear profiles are employed for long life and high precision; a free-sprung balance prevents even hard hits from altering the timing accuracy. JLC's Compressor Diving case is 44mm in diameter and features an upscale brushed titanium finish. The unidirectional diving bezel operates with a crisp ratcheting action. An outstanding rubber-coated bracelet offers the supple feel of a rubber strap, but it offers security and substance that only a bracelet can provide.
