Jacquard’s Metal Ceramic Deep-sea Chronograph Sounds A Retro Voice From The Deep Sea

In 2013, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Chronograph Cermet watch followed the Memovox Deep Sea watch launched in 1959. With precision movements and unique materials, it strikes the retro in the deep sea. ll.

 This outstanding model is directly derived from the Memovox Deep Sea alarm watch launched in 1959. This timepiece was the first automatic diving watch equipped with an alarm device. At that time, it was made by all Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmakers. The root of this is the charm of this watch. Today, Jaeger-LeCoultre launches a DEEP SEA CHRONOGRAPH CERMET metal-ceramic deep-sea chronograph watch that is based on classic design and is at the forefront of technology, once again striding forward in the field of watchmaking. This unique combination may put an end to the long-running debate, especially since this chronograph has added unique security features. This clever device takes inspiration from the Chronoflight chronograph. Chronoflight was invented specifically for aircraft in the 1930s and remained popular with pilots until the mid-1950s.

 Instruments originally designed for professionals

 This timepiece complies with all the requirements of the ISO 6425 standard for diving watches and exhibits professional qualities in many aspects. This watch has a unidirectional rotating bezel and luminous hands and hour markers that are accurate and easy to read in the dark. Regardless of shock and magnetic protection, the Jaeger-LeCoultre DEEP SEA CHRONOGRAPH CERMET deep-sea chronograph watch fully complies with ISO standards. It is worth mentioning that this watch is equipped with a water-resistant depth of 10 bar (100 meters) to ensure that it operates normally in the underwater environment and is absolutely reliable. The sturdy case back is engraved with the pattern of the frogman surrounded by bubbles on the classic watch. This diving timepiece is equipped with a lacquered calfskin strap, which makes the watch completely impervious to water under all conditions.

 The signature model looks new with a new case

 The case is another focus: despite its 44 mm diameter, it is extremely lightweight on the wrist. This is because the watch uses reinforced cermet. Cermet is a revolutionary material consisting of an aluminum-based material.It is very lightweight, reinforced with ceramic particles and coated with a 40-micron-thick protective ceramic coating. Reinforced cermet has many impressive advantages, and its name directly reflects the combination of ceramic and metal technology. Reinforced cermets are more resistant to shock and pressure than pure ceramics, which is undoubtedly one of the most appreciated characteristics of divers. Because this material is not affected by extreme temperatures, it is also used in the aviation industry and in Formula One engines. In addition, its ceramic protective coating is more wear-resistant than steel. Reinforced cermet is also 33% lighter than titanium, making it an ideal material for making 44 mm diameter cases, and it is especially suitable for professional diving.


 The Jaeger-LeCoultre DEEP SEA CHRONOGRAPH CERMET chronograph watch is driven by the Jaeger-LeCoultre 758 self-winding mechanical movement with a vibration frequency of 28,800 times per hour, and uses the latest anti-shock protection technology developed by the watch factory. This movement is all hand-made, assembled and decorated, with a power reserve of up to 65 hours.

 Jaeger-LeCoultre DEEP SEA CHRONOGRAPH CERMET deep-sea diving watch with chronograph operation indicator consisting of two dials (one red and one white), you can check at a glance whether the chronograph is running, stopped or reset , Help to improve the safety of divers.

 This special feature comes from one of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s classic inventions: the Chronoflight chronograph. This device was invented by Jaeger-LeCoultre in the 1930s and was soon installed on aircraft and sports car dashboards. At that time, the dial was equipped with multiple timers and accumulators, allowing it to accumulate flight time and deduct stop time at the same time. For more than three decades, this rugged and reliable device has become one of the most precious cockpit instruments. It is also an indispensable feature of the aviation interface in harsh environments in the first half of the 20th century, and famous riders have begun to understand its outstanding performance. Quality, they have been installed on racing cars. Chronoflight is especially equipped with ingenious devices related to chronograph functions, and now the watch factory also allows 21st century divers to use this device.

Recap history

 In the mid-twentieth century, deep-sea diving was both a field of scientific research and a rapidly developing sport. Diving clubs have sprung up everywhere, and members travel around the world to explore the deep sea world. The public is concerned about the equipment of divers, but for bold pioneers in the unknown, these equipment still have serious safety problems. In this regard, time is of the essence. Throughout the ages, when divers gradually returned to the surface, they would stop at multiple decompression stations. Therefore, divers must pay careful attention to the oxygen reserve and the time required to return to the surface in order to plan the appropriate time to return to the atmosphere. More than 50 years ago, Jaeger-LeCoultre engineers have realized that the alarm function is an indispensable device for diving watches. After the introduction of the Memovox alarm watch, they applied the ringtone function to the diving watch, named after the deep-sea series. At that time, there was no standard definition for diving watches, so this improvement was a breakthrough. The first model was sold out immediately after its launch, with great success. The pioneering MEMOVOX DEEP SEA deep sea alarm watch has occupied a place in the history of legendary clocks and its outstanding reputation has been extended to the 2011 reprint model-MEMOVOX TRIBUTE TO DEEP SEA deep sea legend alarm watch. This tribute is based on Jaeger-LeCoultre’s long tradition and incorporates innovative technological elements.
