In scuba diving, the precise and accurate measurement of time is a vital necessity
Jaeger-LeCoultre introduces a professional instrument of legendary origin. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Chronoflight luxury watch was adapted to divers
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Chronograph watch has an operating indicator for the chronograph which contributes to divers’ safety by enabling them to check at a glance that the chronograph is indeed measuring a certain time interval, that it is ready to be activated, or that the measured time is displayed on the various counters.
This specific feature is inspired by a historical Jaeger-LeCoultre model: the Chronoflight. This onboard chronograph was invented in 1930 to equip civil and military aviation. It further enriched the range of onboard instruments made by Jaeger since the 1910s. The Chronoflight featured a number of subdials and totalisers, serving in particular to calculate total flight times while deducting stopovers. Used for over 30 years, its sturdiness and its precision also made it a favourite among motor-racing drivers.
Jaeger LeCoultre Deep Sea Auto Chronograph complies with all the criteria imposed on diver’s watches by the ISO 6425 standard. It features a unidirectional rotating bezel, is water-resistant to 10 bar (100 metres), readable in the dark, and also meets the corresponding demands in terms of magnetism and resistance to shocks.
