Collection: Master Gender: Men
The Jaeger LeCoultre Q1708170 is a gorgeous timepiece that pleasingly fashioned to let both of its sportive side and elegance shine at once in your wrist. From the brand’s Master Compressor Memovox series that was originally unveiled during SIHH 2002, the gent’s watch is presented in polished stainless steel case with rotary bezel on a matching polished stainless steel bracelet that comes with deployment buckle.

Jaeger LeCoultre Q1708170 41.5mm Master Compressor Memovox 170.81.70 Automatic

Being offered at a medium luxury price point, of course, you can expect that this men’s mechanical watch is not just an average Swiss automatic timepiece. Housed inside its sturdy 41.5 mm case, is the in-house manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 918, a high quality mechanical automatic movement that is crafted, assembled and decorated by the hand of JLC’s experienced watchmakers in Switzerland with care. This timepiece functionality offerings are hour, minute, center seconds, date, and alarm, while its sophisticated caliber provides around 45 hours of power reserve under full wind.

The watch dial is bold in Black, with a neat layout and distinctive hands and markers with luminescent that makes it such a pleasure to read in every light conditions. Furthermore, it is covered by high quality sapphire crystal that features anti-reflective coating to improve its clarity. On the dial, there are Arabic numerals markers at 6, 9 and 12 that alternates with stick markers, minute markers around the outer rim, and a date displays at the 3 o’clock position. Unlike the original version, the alarm marker on this JLC 170.81.70 isn’t at twelve, but at 10 o’clock position (denoted by a red outlined triangular).

The Jaeger LeCoultre Q1708170 Master Compressor Memovox is 100 m water resistant so that you can keep wearing it while swimming. This water resistance achieved through the timepiece’s revolutionary new patented design --Although the crowns are not "screw down", they are equipped with an external butterfly collar that turns half turn clock wise and counter clock wise (independently of the crown), each collar has red and white enamel indicating arrows. White arrow indicates the crown is secure/water resistant, Red Arrow indicates the crown is non-secure/non-water resistant. When the collar is in the secure position it compresses a gasket that ensures water resistance.

Last but not least, the original suggested retail price of this luxury wrist flatter is $12,700. A bit pricey, maybe, but the watch worth each every penny for its style, built quality, and reliability. And being JLC’s, it quite a worth investment, too.
