For my 125th post here on my blog I will return to the Jaeger-LeCoultre 125 Years Jubilé Collection and have a closer look at one of the clocks included in the Jubilé Collection, the clock reference 70.
Very similar to the clock reference 69 I showed you here earlier, but like a “stretch limousine” version!
The clock part is the same as the ref 69, but in the middle you have a thermometer and to the right a barometer.
Same story as with the other clock, Jaeger-LeCoultre made different signed versions, “Jaeger-LeCoultre”, “Jaeger” and “LeCoultre” depending on market.
The base is the same regardless of for which market. Notice that the thermometer have both Celsius and Fahrenheit scales to make it work regardless of market.
One difference on the clock is that the pusher to stop the alarm is on the side of the clock instead of on the top.
Not only is the pusher relocated, the whole movement is rotated 90 degrees to avoid having to make any adjustments to the movement.
If you look at the back of the reference 70 and compare it to the reference 69, you can see the operating parts locations and order the 90 degrees rotation is evident. Link to the post in the end of this post.
The barometer have a rotating knob on the side to be able to set the barometer indicator.
The case is 118 x 62 mm making it perfect for your desk at the office or in your home…
And like the reference 69, it’s impossible to only have one!
Here again, is the ad from 1958 showing the reference 69 and 70.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre 125 Years Jubilé Collection have more to offer… I will soon continue with more form the collection, so stay tuned!
