  • Catalogue Essay

    The Géographique is Jaeger-leCoultre's interpretation of the dual time complication. The second dial of the watch is entirely dedicated to this feature, thus allowing for a level of refinement higher than what usually seen on dual time timepieces. In fact, the second dial accurately display time in two zones 12 hours apart, indicated in the two fan-shaped apertures at 6. The time shown on the dial is accompanied by a small day/night indication at 5 o' clock, and a GMT+/GMT- indication at 7. The GMT +/- indication refers to the two cities shown in the fan-shaped apertures, one tagged GMT -, the other GMT +, and indicates to which of them the day/night indication refers. The other city will have the same time but in the opposite part of the day.

    Jaeger-LeCoultre

    Swiss • 1833

    Not all companies in the watchmaking field have been able to stand the test of time quite like Jaeger LeCoultre, also known as the "watchmaker's watchmaker." Founded in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre and originally named LeCoutre, the firm provided watchmaking's top brands, such as Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet, the high-grade, unfinished mechanical movements with which they completed their watches.



    In the early 1900s, Cartier's watch supplier Edmond Jaeger sought out LeCoultre's help in creating the world's thinnest watches. The collaboration resulted in the creation of Cartier's earliest Tank and Santos watches, all housed with LeCoultre movements. The duo decided to merge in 1937, and the firm officially became the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand by which collectors know and adore it today. Some of the firm's most significant and important timepieces include the Reverso, the Memovox, the Atmos clock and, among modern watches, their Master Complications.
