The Polaris Mariner

With precise and clean movements the Polaris Mariner draws on its diving watch heritage with two new models that unite fully ISO 6425-compliant specifications with the sporty aesthetic of the contemporary Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris collection: the Polaris Mariner Memovox and the Polaris Mariner Date.

Based on the original Memovox from the 1950's these 42mm cases feature key design codes of the  current Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris cases with their taut lines, glass-box crystals, and  a mix of brushed and polished surfaces. In keeping with the purpose as a high-performance diving watch, the Polaris Mariner is water-resistant to 300 metres (30 bar). Furthermore, the crown used to set the notched inner-bezel is screwed-down to avoid any unintentional movement, with the addition of an orange security band to warn divers when it is not fully screwed down.

Distinguished by their rich gradient-blue colour, Polaris Mariner dials also remain true to contemporary aesthetics, comprising three concentric circles finished in different textures and featuring bold trapezoid-shaped indexes and three Arabic numerals. The central disc of the dials is sunray-brushed, complementing the subtle graining of the middle ring and the opaline finish of the outer ring, which serves as the unidirectional rotating bezel.

The hands, indexes and numerals are filled with SuperLumiNova® to ensure excellent legibility in low light, as required of all diving watches. However, Jaeger-LeCoultre has gone a step further, maximising divers’ safety by using different colors to distinguish the hour and minute hands with running seconds hand tipped in orange for daylight visibility and a central luminescent section to avoid any possibility of confusion with the other hands
