Thread: What do you think of?

  1. #1

    What do you think of?

    Hi,

    After originally completely dismissing the idea of a 'ticking' mechanical watch and by that I am refering to the Jaeger geophysic true seconds, I am now being strangely drawn to the watch! I may now actually consider it as a next watch.

    What do you guys think of the watch, or the concept?

    Cheers!

    master geophysic or master control (if want a mechanical equivalent), either way is a win-win.

    from the two I would personally choose the master geophysic due to its uniqueness.

    Thanks

    I personally think the true seconds is a better looking dial and case than the master control. Movement looks better imo also.

    I already have a master memovox so probably wouldnt want another master series watch.

    Myself, I find the movement beautiful both in design and execution, but the dial leaves something to be desired. It's simple, minimalistic, subdued... but also a tad boring, perhaps? This is of course wholly subjective, but there's something in almost every modern JLC that is off. The frosted silver dial is really well executed, the markers' polishing is even and high-level... Technically, an excellent watch, and if it really makes you tick, then even better!

    The concept of a true-seconds watch is intriguing, though. I really like the addition of the complication in an intermediate tier watch like this. The democratization of high-end complications in the past years has been really refreshing in my opinion :)

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I thought it was a bit boring and bland. Then the plain face and features started to appeal for some strange reason!

    I think as an overall design its a grower and a slow burner as it surely isnt a design that has an instant wow factor.

    Know this thread is old but I own a JLC geophysic true second and can honestly say it is fantastic. I find myself watching the hand tick, or listening close to hear the tick,tick,tick,TICK.

    If itís quiet you can hear the ceramic bearings whirr (in the right situation).
    The watch lends itself imo to NATO straps, Iíve got a collection of many and itís subtle nature makes it so versatile.

    Also love the fact itís not ubiquitous like Rolex and some other brands.

    Shows the frosted dial nicely, also mine is the only one Iíve ever seen without the words Ďgeophysic true secondí on the face. Super clean!
