1960s Jaeger-Lecoultre Geomatic E399 in steel

The Geomatic is a beautiful and rare classic produced by Jaeger-Lecoultre in the 60s. It succeds to the mythical Geophysic.

The two particularities of this model are its chronometre certification and the hack-system (or stop-second) feature, that allows to set the time to the nearest second. Produced to less than 1000 units between 1962 and 1968, this model is hard to find, especially in stainless steel. With a diameter of 36mm, it is the perfect dress watch.

In a few words, it’s one of the nicest watches ever produced by Jaeger-Lecoultre.
