Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time

Jaeger-LeCoultre 2017

Men's

Geophysic Tourbillon Universal Time square

 

 

Launched in 2015, the Geophysic collection inspires us

to pack a bag and set off around the world. A first ever association of an

orbital flying tourbillon with world time, the Geophysic Universal Time doesn't

require multiple stopovers to be enjoyed. Under a domed sapphire crystal, this

is a journey for the eyes as they wander over the blue lacquered guilloché dial

which contrasts with the sunburst engraved continents. And so we are treated to

a spectacular aerial view of planet earth in its perpetual revolutions, driven

by an orbital tourbillon that completes one rotation every 24 hours. This world

view is circled by an outer ring that carries the names of 24 cities. The

highly legible second time zone is easily and quickly set by the crown.
