Goal achieved... kind of.

Last week I posted how I was really close to my goal of getting my new Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Chronograph without putting any NEW funds into it. Well, I was 80% or so there and a deal popped up too good to pass up. So I bought it.

Also, my posting that video and watching it a dozen times in a row didn't help. But I really love this watch.

The micro-adjust on the bracelet is really helpful and the dial is beautiful. I wanted a blue watch to help remind me of the time I lived in Hawaii... swimming with the sharks and other adventures were incredible. The sunray on this dial reminds me of looking down into the deep with the sharks and the rough area on the dial reminds me of the first few days we were here and went to a beach to swim and it was so rocky by the shore.

The column wheel and vertical clutch make this watch a joy to use.

really fabulous watch that doesn't get as much attention as it deserves IMO.

It's going to be an awesome summer

What a beauty !!馃憣 congrats 馃嵒

amazing watch! Congrats

Wear it in the best of health!

Congratulations !! Gorgeous watch.

Jesus Christ that鈥檚 a beautiful watch. Congrats and wear it proudly馃憤馃徎

To me, these are among the most underrated chronographs there are. It's svelte and good looking, it's well spec'd and has a genuinely amazing movement.

It should be discussed in the same breath as the Daytona and the Chronomaster Sport.

Congratulations!!! That鈥檚 a beautiful watch!!!

I didn鈥檛 really 鈥済et鈥 the Polaris until I got one on my wrist. Now it鈥檚 near the top of my list of 鈥渟omeday鈥 watches.

Totally agree here, the whole Polaris line is just splendid. It also feels strangely 'off' for JLC. Like a confident, sporty and slightly loud brother in law in an otherwise modest and quiet spoken family.

Wow.

Congratulations on a beautiful timepiece.

Magnificent 馃敟

Great choice. Enjoy it!

I am a massive fan of JLC. The Polaris is so under-rated. A beautifully executed bicompax. Congratulations!
