In 2013, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Chronograph Cermet timepiece is writing a new chapter in the field of underwater exploration: its illustrious ancestry is matched by a peerlessly reliable movement endowed with signature Jaeger-LeCoultre functions, while its case embodies an exceptional technological breakthrough.
An instrument intended for professionals
This timepiece is professional in more than one aspect, since it meets all the criteria laid down for diver’s watches in the ISO 6425 standard. It has a unidirectional rotating bezel, while the luminescent hands and hour-markers enable easy and error-free indication readings, even in poor visibility conditions. This timepiece water-resistant to 10 bar (100 metres) is designed to guarantee absolute reliability in an aquatic environment, its solid caseback is adorned with an engraving of a frogman surrounded by bubbles. The diver’s watch is teamed with a calfskin strap complete with a varnished edge ensuring it remains fully impermeable, whatever the circumstances.
An icon gets a facelift with a brand-new case
The case also calls for specific attention: despite its generous 44 mm diameter, it conveys a surprising sense of lightness on the wrist.It is more resistant to shocks and pressure than pure ceramics, an asset that divers are sure to appreciate to the full. Moreover, its ceramic protective layer is more resistant to scratching than steel.
A distinctive Jaeger-LeCoultre feature
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Chronograph Cermet is driven by mechanical automatic Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 758 housing a balance oscillating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, and incorporates the latest results of the research conducted by the Manufacture in the realm of anti-shock protection. Crafted, assembled and decorated by hand, this movement ensures a 65-hour power reserve. On the Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Chronograph Cermet diver’s watch, a chronograph operating indicator composed of two discs contributes to enhancing diver’s safety by enabling them to check at a glance whether the chronograph is running, stopped or reset. This specific feature is inspired by a historical Jaeger-LeCoultre model: the Chronoflight.
In celebrating its 180th anniversary in 2013, Jaeger-LeCoultre has chosen to hark back to one of the finest chapters in its history by turning the spotlight on a creation radiating an aesthetic and technical perfection that pays tribute to the multiple skills cultivated within the Grande Maison.
