This JLC Polaris Date is a Limited Edition version of the current 42mm Polaris Date – Inspired by the Memovox Polaris II of 1970, this was designed as a sports watch with smart, almost dress watch tendencies.
The 42mm stainless steel case with its smooth bezel is extremely elegant while still feeling like a sports watch and the dial and handset are clear, vintage inspired and just plain cool with three Arabic numerals and a date window at 3 o’clock. The rubber strap feels of extremely high quality and has a superb texture – again it’s a bit of a mixture, this time it’s functional and yet smart – this is a rubber strap that you could wear with a dinner jacket.
The most special thing about this watch is that it’s not available in stores or from JLC direct – you can buy a similar version with a black dial for £7,300 but this isn’t one of those.
This is a genuine limited edition with only 800 examples in the world and it has a stunning, hand lacquered, double gradient blue sunburst dial that looks incredible against the creamy plots, numerals and hand lume. These watches sold out very quickly indeed.
This example is a hardly worn Full Set with both boxes, books, papers – everything that came with it from new – and it’s in unmarked original condition.
A very rare opportunity to secure a very rare and collectible watch from one of the true Grande Maisions.
