In 2014, Jaeger-LeCoultre decided to re-edit this legendary watch and produced a limited edition of 300 Geophysic 1958 models in rose gold. The case is larger than the original and measures 38.5mm but the styling is pure vintage, with the sword-shaped hands and austere dial transporting you back to the late 1950s. Powered by a JLC automatic movement and sealed in a soft-iron case, the watch is anti-magnetic, shockproof and waterproof to 100 metres, combining handsome retro styling with outstanding performance. This sober, apparently simple-looking watch is in fact a re-edition of Jaeger-LeCoultre's iconic 1958 Geophysic chronometer. Jaeger-LeCoultre originally built the watch for scientists participating in the International Geophysical Year (1957-1958) - a scientific project involving 67 countries that marked the beginning of scientific interchange between East and West - and rose to the occasion by producing a highly technical watch capable of withstanding shocks, magnetism and immersions.
