Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Memovox – solid

Posted by

With the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris line, finally there is a sports watch in the collection again!

A bit exclusive for being a true sports watch – a change all major brands have made lately with their sports watches…

Personally I think it’s a bit sad since, the outcome is that very few of today’s sports watches will be used as such…

Not long ago you could still buy a sports watch from some of the major brands and still use it for its purpose without hesitation…

For me, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Memovox is such watch! Built like a tank, can take a beating without loosing its look…

Master Compressor Memovox – without hesitation

A bit surprising is that it is only water-resistant down to 100 meters / 10 ATM, but with the compressor crowns at T.W.O and four, it really feels solid!

On a Nato or rubber strap it really is a care free watch – to be used as a tool, whatever you do, where ever you go!

The trend now with the increased pricing, more exclusive design and materials – especially within the steel sports watch segment…

Will it kill the true tool watch among the major brands?

Already today you can see people who buy an exclusive sports watch to be used in the office or at the party… But once a real tool watch situation occurs, they use one from a less exclusive brand…

Something that would be interesting to know is how many percentage of all modern divers watches have ever touched water..?

After 15 years of “whatever I have done, where ever I have gone” treatment, it is still up for a photo shoot!
