征服BAFTA視帝 班尼狄克詮釋積家潛水響鬧腕錶/ Benedict Cumberbatch talks about Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Mariner Memovox
自從班尼狄克·康柏拜區（Benedict Cumberbatch）佩戴 Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Mariner Memovox 潛水響鬧腕錶拍攝短片《In a Breath》後，積家的這款腕錶已經成為他最愛的腕錶之一，且這位45歲的英國男演員一直是這個瑞士品牌的摯友。
這位得過 BAFTA 的視帝說：「作為潛水腕錶，我很喜歡它如此纖薄輕巧，同時又時尚十足。無論是配襯居家服或潛水服，都能完美搭配。腕錶極為含蓄優雅，因此我可以佩戴它做任何事，潛入海中、踏單車、出席拍照活動，或只是休閒放鬆也可。而且它的鬧鈴功能堪稱完美，尤其是與數位鬧鈴相比，它更柔和、更安靜，佩戴於手腕間時可感覺到它輕微振動，我非常喜歡。」
「與許多潛水錶有所不同，無論是搭配休閒服飾，或進行潛水運動時佩戴，這枚腕錶都不會有喧賓奪主的感覺。它精美迷人，擁有經典的造型，雋永恆久。」 Benedict Cumberbatch
全新 Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Mariner Memovox 潛水響鬧腕錶堅固耐用。嶄新錶款的功能完全符合 ISO 6425 潛水標準，防水深度達300 米（30巴），採用同心圓設計的漸變藍色錶盤洋溢運動氣息。搭載與積家首批自動響鬧腕相同的 956 型自動上鏈機芯；透明的藍寶石水晶底蓋，可欣賞全新外圍式音簧；更保留了積家響鬧腕錶的經典特色 — 「學校鈴聲」。
Since Benedict Cumberbatch wore the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Mariner Memovox for the making of the short film In a Breath, it has become one of his favourite pieces. Wearing the watch on many different occasions over the past year, the actor and longstanding Friend of La Grande Maison has come to appreciate its great versatility – both as a casually elegant everyday timepiece and as a high-performing dive watch.
“It is slim for a diving watch which I really like – and it’s a very stylish thing: I can just wear it at home with a jumper as well as with a wetsuit,” he says. “Because it’s so understated and elegant, I can wear it for everything – in the sea or on a bicycle, at a photo shoot or just chilling out.”
“Unlike many dive watches, it doesn’t feel overbearing on the wrist if you’re wearing it casually, as well as for its purpose – diving. It’s a beautiful object, a classic look – really timeless.” - Benedict Cumberbatch
Mr Cumberbatch has a good relationship with this Swiss brand. Therefore, discuss this watch with him, he said: “It’s light, it’s incredibly durable and I like that you can actually see the mechanism at the back through the glass which is quite rare in a dive watch. It’s the geek in me. I love to see the mechanisms,” he remarks. “It functions at a 300-metre depth, which is well beyond most recreational and commercial dives, and it must have taken a lot of effort to have something that is resistant to that much pressure and that much depth still visible with the transparent back. It’s a mightily impressive bit of engineering and yet it’s still incredibly sleek for a diving watch.”
Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Mariner Memovox
The robust capabilities and distinctive aesthetic of the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Mariner Memovox pay direct homage to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s first diving watches. Functionality has been enhanced, to be fully compliant with ISO 6425 diving specifications and water-resistant to 300 metres, while the concentric rings of the gradient blue dial create a sporty and distinctively contemporary aesthetic. The self-winding movement, Calibre 956, is a direct descendant of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s first automatic alarm watch calibres. With a new peripheral gong designed to allow for a transparent sapphire case-back, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Mariner Memovox retains the signature “school bell” sound that lends such charm to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s alarm watches.
