The history of the dials is a little hazy, and most of the big watchmakers produced them in one time or another (maybe not a surprise, because most manufacturers were using the same dial manufacturers). They originate sometime in the late 1920s or early 1930s and could be traced into two applications — officers watches for the military and scientific watches for lab usage. Sometime in the late ’40s or early ’50s the popularity of industry dials started to wane before nearly entirely disappearing from catalogs.However, recently, the design has become popular again and watchmakers are producing new takes on the vintage style. Whether it has anything to do with the mania for mid-century everything that’s cropped up over the last half-decade or not is another matter for another time, but there is no doubt that sector dials are hot at the moment. And this watch could be one of the hottest examples.The Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic was first launched in 1958 as a special edition watch and has since become a hot favorite for classic collectors. In 2014, JLC revived the Geophysic label for a brand new line of watches. The Geophysic Universal Time in steel has been a part of this lineup, followed by a golden version. Here, we examine the steel version on a bracelet and it’s actually rather interesting how a simple modification like exchanging a leather strap to get a steel bracelet can considerably change the identity of a watch. I am aware this point appears to be self-evident, but the change from quite dressy to quite casual is stark here, particularly considering that the classic world timer dial.

Electric Blue includes a stunning matte blue register beneath blue Clous de Paris markings on the dial. Military Marble is made up of matte green register surrounded by a unique-looking green marble. And lastly, Tiger’s Eye features a red brown register in the middle of the dial surrounded by Tiger’s Eye rock, which includes distinctive alternating bands of various colors of gold and brown. And if you would like, Jaeger-LeCoultre also has matching straps to go with these 3 new dials.I have always enjoyed Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watches with 2 faces, and I think these three new dial options will be popular amongst Reverso fans who want something a little from the ordinary. Personally, I’m very fond of dials made out of exotic stone as I find them to look much more interesting and dynamic. Of the trio, the Electric Blue dial doesn’t actually do much for me personally, and I am more intrigued by the Military Marble and Tiger’s Eye dial choices. Military Marble is definitely something unusual and could be interesting from the flesh. On the other hand, Tiger’s Eye is a wonderfully striking stone and I think that it would make for a visually arresting watch dial.Prices of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Atelier Reverso Classic Big Duo Small Second watch begin at $8,400 and will vary based on your dial and strap choice.True for its character, SIHH isn’t exactly a touchpoint for people who love an easy steel sport watch. But surprises do occur, and among a sea of tourbillons, a handful of grande sonneries, and enough valuable metal to underwrite a little ground war, Jaeger-LeCoultre pulled a quick one and dropped a trio of steel Master versions that quickly became a highlight of this series. With a crisp but romantic design and a complication for nearly any taste, the newest Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date, Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Geographic, and Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Chronograph demonstrate that JLC hasn’t lost any of the signature range.

The history of these dials is somewhat hazy, and nearly all of the huge watchmakers made them in one time or another (maybe not a surprise, because most brands were using the identical dial manufacturers).

It is unclear which came first, however, the style flourished in the ’30s and ’40s, for both pocket watches and wristwatches, with Patek Philippe, Omega, and IWC making a number of the most lauded cases.
