Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Vintage Chronograph

Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Vintage Chronograph -

a tribute to a legendary watch

The Memovox Deep Sea needs no introduction. More than any other, this avant-garde achievement wrote one of the first chapters in the history of scuba diving. Right from the appearance of this new sports discipline in the 1950s, Jaeger-LeCoultre provided the first explorers of the ocean depths – whether driven by scientific goals or by a thirst for discovery – with a timepiece that exceeded their demands. Through the different versions introduced until the early 1970s, the Memovox Deep Sea became one of the rare watchmaking creations to leave an indelible imprint on its era. Eager to offer an audience of devotees and connoisseurs the opportunity to strap to their wrist one of the symbols of its inexhaustible inventiveness, the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre offers some remarkable reinterpretations

of this legendary watch. The impressive success of the model unveiled in 2011 encouraged the Grande Maison in the Vallée de Joux to pursue this path.

2012 sees the introduction of a new water-resistant watch inspired by the Memovox Deep Sea: the Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Vintage Chronograph. Its lines express great historical loyalty and testify to its proud sporting heritage. Featuring a 40.5 mm case size similar to that of the Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea, this model is endowed with a range of characteristics that are bound to thrill connoisseurs.
