Notes

Property of the original Swiss owner. In 2008, as a tribute to the original three crown Polaris, Jaeger LeCoultre launched a re-edition of the iconic model. Made in a limited number of 768 pieces, this particular example with the number 42 was one of the first examples delivered to the Swiss owner and was completely overhauled by the manufacturer in 2014. Relaunched in a new limited edition of 1000 pieces at SIHH in 2018, the initial re-edition was already a collectible when launched and the 768 pieces were quickly snapped up; a future classic.
