Jaeger-LeCoultre continues its association with the elite corps of the U.S. Navy, the Navy SEALs, with the latest release in the series, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving Alarm Navy SEALs Beverly Hills Boutique Incursion Edition. These latest timepieces will be a Jaeger-LeCoultre first - a Beverly Hill Boutique exclusive and without doubt one which will cause rapture among the members of the JLCBHBC (or the Jaeger-LeCoultre Beverly Hills Boutique Connoisseurs Club, to give it its full title), who incidentally were also consulted during the creation of this edition. The flagship store’s glitzy and glamorous site is in close enough proximity to the more austere Navy Amphibious Coronado base to make this collaboration authentic, location-wise at least.
The 44mm watch case is available in either 18ct black gold or titanium PVD with a grey matte finish. The movement is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 956 with 45-hour power reserve and hours, minutes, date aperture at three o’clock and rotating inner bezel ring.
The “covert” nature of these pieces results in a rather overcast character, however flashes of colour - yellow for the titanium PVD and orange for the black gold version on the seconds hand, crown and five seconds markings provide the required enlivenment. These colour-ways also feature as stitching on the ultra durable Cordoba strap.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving Alarm Navy SEALs Beverly Hills Boutique Incursion Edition is a limited release of 62 pieces for the titanium PVD type and 19 pieces for the black gold version.
