Watches like this Geophysic True Second illustrate why Jaeger-LeCoultre best replica watches UK continues to be one of the few remaining “watch-lover watchmakers.” toward the latter part of 2015. I advise those interested in this unique yet conservative mechanical watch to reference that previous article because I take the time to discuss what makes this timepiece particularly noteworthy.
It was back in 2014 that Jaeger-LeCoultre revived the Jaeger LeCoultre Geophysic series replica watch collection based on some uncommon models produced in the 1950s known for their use of luminant dots on the sapphire crystal. Vestiges of that design exist today, and on the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic True Second watches, you can see points of luminant applied on the outer edge of the ring around the watch dial. This adds a special flavor to what is essentially a classic and conservative design.
Still, there is an enormous amount of “wrist appeal” to the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic with its handsome, legible looks and focus on what makes so many traditional-looking watch dials feel timeless in their relevancy. Jaeger-LeCoultre matches a lightly textured matte dial with applied brushed gold or steel hour markers and matching hands. In its stately focus on function and purpose, the dial of the Geophysic with its virtual lack of anything superfluous is actually quite elegant.
So what is a “True Second?” The marketing minds at Jaeger-LeCoultre fake watches have adopted the notion of a “dead seconds” hand into this more presentable title. In short, the in-house made mechanical movement inside of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic True Second has a seconds hand which ticks rather than sweeps. Call it trendy, but watch lovers have become taken by this perhaps ironically attractive complication which, of course, does help mechanical watches look as though they are quartz given the operational movement of the seconds hand.
Upon close inspection, the careful eye will immediately notice that even with its quartz movement-like ticking seconds hand, the operation of this motion is more solid and precise than one will find in the vast majority of quartz movements . The only exceptions are a handful of exotic high-end quartz movements from Seiko such as the this one which are specially designed to ensure that the seconds hand does not “wiggle” each time it moves. The sure-feeling and precise motion of a “ticking” seconds hand in a mechanical dead-beat watch is, for the most part, a superior visual experience than what you’ll find in a typical quartz watch.
