Sometimes Tasting Jaeger-lecoultre Geophysical Observatory World Time Watch

World Time watches have always been counted as a complex watch, between a simple three-handed and a large complex watch. Although the world time watch is not a big complicated watch, it is one of the most practical watch functions. It displays the time in various time zones. This is very useful for business professionals. Today’s watch home is To bring you a tasting of Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysical Observatory World Time Watch, the official model of the watch is: Q8108420.

   This Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysical Observatory World Time watch is the latest watch launched by Jaeger-LeCoultre at the 2015 Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair. It has attracted much attention since its launch. In addition to the stainless steel version introduced today, it also has 18K Available in rose gold.

Geophysical Observatory watch series with classic hands and linear hour markers

   The Geophysical Observatory watch series uses classic hands and linear time scales to interpret modern aesthetics while also inheriting the brand’s historical characteristics. The case reproduces Jaeger-LeCoultre’s fine watchmaking style and highlights the individuality of the watch. This watch is designed with a diameter of 41.6 mm and is made of a stainless steel case.

Polished sides of the lugs highlight the smooth contours

   The sides of the lugs are polished to accentuate the smooth contours. The bezel and the details of the case and lugs are cleverly superimposed, which also makes the overall aesthetic of the watch smoother and more gorgeous. Like the prototype model introduced in 1958, the Geophysic® series of geophysical observatories has a screw-in caseback, which enhances the waterproof performance. This design is designed for diving watches. The overall lines are smoother and outline the perfect overall appearance.
