Shop all Jaeger-LeCoultre watches: http://bit.ly/2zAzZyX The 1968 Jaeger LeCoultre Polaris E859 Q2008470 is the definitive vintage Jaeger LeCoultre diving watch and diving alarm. While original JLC Polaris examples are highly collectible, they're far too old to enjoy submerged as the artisans of Le Sentier intended. Enter the 2008 Jaeger LeCoultre Tribute to Polaris. Produced in a total of 768 copies with the definitive "1968" dial, this modern diving Memovox is as rare as the vintage original. The 42mm case is nearly identical to the Super Compressor original right down to the triple Ervin Picquerez SA "quadrille" crowns and domed Plexiglas crystal. Inside the watch, Super LumiNova ensures that vintage dial graphics and modern night time luminescence co-exist. The internal rotating dive bezel remains from the vintage Jaeger LeCoultre E859 Polaris, and an automatic JLC Memovox alarm caliber sits secure within the 200-meter water resistant case. Jaeger LeCoultre's manufacture caliber 956 was created specifically for this application. Automatic winding and a 45-hour power reserve ensure convenience for modern watch buyers, and a date window is supported by the first ever quick set date in a JLC Memovox movement. Hacking seconds, ceramic winding rotor bearings, a 28,800 vibration per hour beat rate, and a free sprung balance ensure that all modern watchmaking standards are respected. Vintage dive watches are charming, but the fun tends to end at the water's edge. But with the Jaeger LeCoultre Tribute to Polaris, you can take the plunge in vintage style with modern technology. How appealing is this watch? Jaeger LeCoultre relaunched the 2018 Polaris Memovox limited edition in honor of this watch... only ten years later.
