The Master Compressor Diving Pro created a stir and a huge craze in the diving. World with its mechanical depth gauge that gives the case such a characteristic shape.
With this exclusive Navy SEALs version, a 300 piece limited edition in with a ceramic bezel, with microspheres, JaegerLeCoultre watertight to 300 meters, JaegerLeCoultre is once again asserting the exceptional nature of its depth gauge system.
This instrument has a membrane that is sensitive to the water pressure exerted on its metallic head. It transmits the information to a rack, which in turn transmits it to a hand.
The depth can be read on a logarithmic scale, which is very detailed for the first 40 meters and is displayed on the outer dial ring.
This Timepiece, the ultimate in technical instru ments, moves to the rhythm of the dive, continually and instantaneously displaying the diver's depth.
Standing out against a black dial, the stam- ped numbers and hour markers are covered with a white luminescent coating, as are the skeletonised hands.
So the design brilliantly plays the card of grea- test legibility with, under the curved crystal sapphi- re of hardness 9, the colours black, white and pink gold, the luminescent hands and displays; while the crowns with their overmoulded compression. Keys of black rubber and the sensor of black PVD steel emphasize the simplicity of this time- piece’s design.
This watch is precious not only for its mate- rials, but also for its functions: date, worldtime and an operating indicator.
For example, to see the time in any time zone, the wearer simply positions the city repre- senting that time zone in a window at 6 o’clock, and the time there is immediately displayed on a round 24-hour dial at 9 o’clock.
The piece’s accuracy is ensured by the Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 979 automatic move- ment, which operates at 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a 48-hour power reserve.
