Jaeger-LeCoultre Replica marked the year by launching the Geophysic 1958, designed for scientists, engineers and others in technical professions. The Geophysic 1958 Replica Watch was equipped with antimagnetic protection, luminous hands and water resistance.
The new replica watch closely follows the design of its predecessor. The shape of the case, with its sloping bezel and straight lugs, recall the original model. The dial looks very similar, too, with its long hour and minutes markers, cross hairs and dagger-shaped hands. The steel version we tested has numerals at 12, 3, 6 and 9, as did one version of the original dial.
The dial on the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic 1958 Best Replica Watch is easy to read,although the luminous dots at the hour markers are rather small for nighttime legibility. The crown also looks similar to its predecessor: a slightly rounded, logo-free polished dome rarely seen these days. Some modern updates include the sapphire crystal and a larger case – 38.5 mm compared to 35 mm.
The caseback notes that the replica watch is a limited edition and that it is water resistant to 100 meters. The alligator strap is nicely finished. It has a varnished top layer and an even, machine-sewn seam. It is lined with bison leather, which does not readily show signs of perspiration or wear and feels smooth against the skin.
