HandsOn: Simply Masterful-Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Geographic

Postby Racer-X » September 11th 2017, 5:04pm

by Felix Scholz "Twenty-five years ago Jaeger-LeCoultre released the Master Control collection, a line of watches dedicated to the sort of traditional high-quality watchmaking for which the Le Sentier-based house is so well known. The pure style of the Master Control sits well with the credibility afforded by JLC’s ‘1000 Hours Control’ testing program, in which the subject watch undergoes six weeks of extensive testing, covering off everything from accuracy to impact. And while these days this sort of rigorous testing procedure is increasingly par for the course, in 1992 JLC was well ahead of the pack."

Not a big fan of these two dimensional knockouts that all the brands are putting out to control costs. I much prefer the older version with more three dimensional look.

Dual time with a city indicator seems to be a rather useful complication. And I really like sector dials. But these two things don't exactly get along aesthetically, IMO. A sector dial looks stunning on time-only watches, chronographs, maybe also triple date (with and without moonphase) watches. The city indicator aperture is a bit too much.
Guess the Tissot Heritage Navigator looks way better. Yes, I know, they're from two very different leagues, but still...

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
