The Swiss made fake Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris II is the epitome of a 1970s design. In particular, the grey colorway is one we rarely come across. It’s big, it’s loud (literally), and it’s oddly satisfying on the wrist. Perhaps it was even too avant-garde for the adventurous minds back then. This model was said to only have been produced in approximately 1,120 examples and only for a couple of years in the early 1970s.
Here, we have an example built for the European market denoted by the stylized “GT” signature for “Grande Taille,” or “large size,” on the dial. On the other hand, the American version was signed “HPG” for “High Precision Guarantee,” reflecting the high-beat movement inside that runs at 28,800 vph. The watch was offered in bright turquoise blue, rich burgundy red, as well as in this more understated smokey grey. The condition of this piece stands out with its large compressor-style case featuring the original sand-blasted finish, the unusual grey rotating bezel, and the attractive patina on the lume on the dial and hands. Plus, it comes with its presentation box, international guarantee, instruction manual, and additional bezel and crystal, which look like they were stored away perfectly for decades. We don’t know when we will come across another Polaris II in such great condition with all the additional goodies, so catch this daring piece while you can by heading over to the Online Shop!
