Geophysic® 1958 Automatic Limited edition of 300 pieces.A re-edition of the original model which was produced by JLC for scientists of the International Geophysical Year in 1958. The original Geophysic watch was designed to withstand extreme conditions, the watch boasted anti-magnetic & anti-shock qualities and very reliable accuracy, all a huge advancement back in 1958. This re-edition captures the spirit of the original watch, although with a more generous case size & a newer more advanced movement.
Case: Polished 18kt rose gold case with brushed finished sides. Lightly grained finished white dial. Applied rose gold hour markers. Fine printed minute/seconds track. Luminous dot hour markers on the brushed finished rose gold case ring surrounding the dial (beneath the crystal). Polished rose gold hands, the hour & minute hands with vintage colored luminous fill.
Strap: Fitted on its original JLC brown alligator leather strap with a rose gold tang buckle. The strap is in very good condition with plenty of wear time life-span remaining, we would rate the strap as being in 85% condition. A brand new strap can be ordered in for $375.
