As you have probably noticed, I had been digging deeper into Jaeger-LeCoultre and in particular the JLC Memovox’es. It’s almost unavoidable that you in that process also come across some other icons from JLC. The Chronometer Geophysic E 399 is definitely one of them.
If you’re passionate about Jaeger-LeCoultre you should make sure to visit the Blomman Watch Report, an encyclopedia on everything JLC.
Back to the E 399. I’m not going to go into any technical or historical details, as mentioned check the Blomman Watch Report for that, but I rather want to explore what the fascination is with this watch.
I think it really is a combination of a number of elements that combine just to a perfect design, the case with the elegant lugs, the thin bezel and domed plexi and the sunburst dial. I must say, I’m quite smitten by the Geomatic.
