This unique feature, typical of quartz replica watches
, is a feat of mechanical watchmaking and has been around since the 18th century when watchmakers were looking for a way to measure short time. The chronograph was in its infancy. It was called “beating the second”. Breguet called it “jump seconds”. Jaeger-LeCoultre had the bright idea to bring the function back into fashion with a new name: the true second. Unveiled last year as a limited edition update of the rolex replica
model, the Geophysic has now spawned its own collection. The True Second model houses the function fuelled by its self-winding movement in an elegant steel or rose gold case. Short time is tracked by red and blue hands in bi-compax counters. A bright blue GMT hand glides along the 24 hour scale. A display at 6 o’ clock showcases of the rolex replica watches
. An elegant alcantara of the and alligator strap with a deployment clasp hugs the curves of the 44mm steel case’s lugs.
