There are several ways to display the time in another time zone
When we visited the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in January this year, Jaeger-LeCoultre presented an amazing number of very beautiful new releases. Just think of the Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea that we just reported about, the new Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute to 1931 and several new models in the Master Control collection, including the Master Geographic.It isn’t difficult to like the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Geographic. Now this may sounds a bit blasé, but the Master Geographic made an incredibly positive impression. It’s elegant, chic and a bit casual at the same time, meaning it goes perfectly with suit and with jeans. With a size of only 39 mm in diameter it might seem like Jaeger Le Coultre Master Hometime wathces, however the size is perfect for this type of Jaeger Le Coultre Ideale wathces. The Master Geographic has serious ‘wrist presence’.
Every brand has it’s own colors of gold and Jaeger Le Coultre Master Compressor Memovox wathces from one brand isn’t the exact same color as Jaeger Le Coultre Master Compressor Chronograph wathces from another brand. While I usually (strongly) prefer white metals, like steel, white gold or platinum, the pink gold case with sunburst silvered of the Master Geographic that Jaeger-LeCoultre provided for this review, might well be one of the Jaeger Le Coultre Reverso Duo wathces in pink gold that I would wear without hesitation.
There are several ways to display the time in another time zone. Jaeger Le Coultre Reverso Grande Taille wathces with a GMT function are quite common and feature an extra 24-hour hand to indicate time in another time zone. There are so-called travelers GMT and office GMT watches. The travelers GMT watch has an independent adjustable hour hand, like the Rolex GMT-Master II and the Omega Seamaster GMT. On almost all other GMT watches, the 24-hour hand can be adjusted and this is particularly handy when you need to know the time of someone in another part of the world. I wrote more about the different GMT watches in this article about the perfect travelers watch.505
