Rediscovering the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Chronograph

Editor's note: If you're in the market for a steel sports watch with a chronograph complication, you really are spoilt for choice. Rolex's Daytona, Omega's Speedmaster, Tudor's Black Bay Chronograph … the list goes on.

INTRODUCING: Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date limited edition

The Polaris collection was launched by Jaeger-LeCoultre last year to pay tribute to the dive watches produced by the brand in the '60s and '70s. Instantly recognisable with the super-compressor style case and internal bezel, the Polaris has been given a new look in the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date.
