“Emmanuel Coindre has successfully achieved his challenge of rowing across the northern passage of the Pacific, from Japan to the United States, meaning almost 11,000 km in 129 days 17 hours 22 minutes and 22 seconds. Jaeger-LeCoultre supported the sportsman at each step of this daunting and ambitious undertaking, during which EmmanuelÄôs physical and mental preparation was confronted with extremely unfavourable weather conditions. The Master Compressor Extreme World Chronograph remained firmly strapped to his wrist throughout the voyage.”
Jaeger-LeCoultre introduces 30 models of this Master Compressor Extreme World Chronograph. 20 watches in titanium & steel combination and 10 watches in titanium & platinum combination. The caseback is ofcourse engraved for this undertaking of Emmanuel Coindre.
Oh yeah.. the guy had to deal with 16 capsizes of his boat (also in yellow and black). Pfff.. he deserves his own watch
