For the second time, the Purists watch forum got an exclusive early preview of a great new Jaeger-LeCoultre watch to be released at Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2012 that will be opened from Monday, January 16 to Friday, January 20, 2012.
The Deep Sea Chronograph that will be unveiled next week is a vintage styled timepiece equipped with Caliber 751G mechanical chronograph movement. The impeccable mechanism with its large variable inertia balance and the ceramic ball bearings oscillates at the rapid frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Considering the fact that it is a time-proven movement, reliability and accuracy are guaranteed.
Although its case construction preserves sufficient water resistance up to 100 meters (330 feet), it is important to be said that this is not a professional diver watch and that it is not recommended to activate the chronograph underwater.
The sleek and uncultured dial with its long and thin triangular indexes, as well as the hands is clearly inspired from the DSA Europe. The dial comprises two chronograph counters for measuring 30 minutes and 12 hours and they are situated symmetrically at 3 and 9 o’clock positions. The Deep Sea Chrono watch has no date window.
This model also has the same case dimensions as the DSA (41mm in diameter) and features the engraved case back with a diver swimming among air bubbles.
The Deep Sea Vintage Chronograph, along with Grande Reverso 1931 Rouge Watch and Duomètre à Quantième Lunaire 40.5 Watch, will be the brand’s highlight at SIHH next week.
This vintage inspired timepiece will be available for sale in the Jaeger-LeCoultre shops around July 2012. We will have more information about this model in a few days, so stay tuned.
