Jaeger-LeCoultre - Master Control Geographic

Following the launch of the revamped Master Control collection by Jaeger-LeCoultre and our articles on the Chronograph Calendar and Calendar models, today we present the new Master Control Geographic.This travel watch has been part of the Master Control collection since 1990 becoming one of the most recognizable models of the entire line.Rather than simply indicating the hour of a second time zone, the Geographic also displays the city name relating to the zone through an aperture at the bottom of the dial. This gives travellers the possibility of setting the second time by location, rather than needing to calculate the time difference. A small 24-hour night/day indicator is placed on the left of the second-time zone subdial.The sunray-brushed dial is completed by a date subdial and a power reserve indicator. All the hands other than the hour and minute ones are blued to enhance legibility while adding a nice touch of colour. The outer circle is characterized by a wide, convex flange on which the elongated triangular indexes are set, perfectly following its profile.Water resistant to a pressure of up to 5 bar (50 metres / 165 feet), the case has a diameter of 40 mm and is 10.96 mm thick with satin-brushed and polished finishes. Scratch-resistant sapphire crystals protect the front and back.Beating at the frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour), the new-generation self-winding Calibre 939 guarantees a power reserve of 70 hours.The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Geographic in stainless steel (ref. Q4128420) is matched to a soft Novonappa calf strap and has a price of Euro 12,500 (including VAT) / US$ 12,200 (excluding sales taxes). The Master Control Geographic is also available in a rose gold version (ref. Q4122520). jaeger-lecoultre.com

Jaeger-LeCoultre - Master Control Geographic
Following the launch of the revamped Master Control collection by Jaeger-LeCoultre and our articles on the Chronograph Calendar and Calendar models, today we present the new Master Control Geographic.

Rather than simply indicating the hour of a second time zone, the Geographic also displays the city name relating to the zone through an aperture at the bottom of the dial. This gives travellers the possibility of setting the second time by location, rather than needing to calculate the time difference. A small 24-hour night/day indicator is placed on the left of the second-time zone subdial.

Tamiya TC-01 Hop ups and details explained

In another series of videos today, Tamiya has given us a close look at the exciting TC-01 and presented some of the hop-ups that can be mounted on the chassis, along with a few important details.I will link the video \the end so you can take a look, but here are some of the important call outs based on the discussions about the TC-01 that we have all had.1- The TC-01 seems to take standard spurs. This is a big deal as it will allow anyone wanting to run the car in stock class the ability to run 64dp and a FDR low enough to be competitive. (Result!)2- Electrics look ok to fit. The TC-01 will only work with a low profile servo, the esc mounted there is not too small, also the chassis has a bridge that holds the wires under the propshaft, so it will be easy enough to arrange the wires without them getting tangled.3- The TB04 differentials will all fit (Internal Ratio will probably be 2.5). Also the aluminium M07 suspension mounts will work, providing a very strong and reliable lower arm assembly.4- Sway bars will fit, also the chassis is able to accommodate the big bore dampers as well as the std TRF shocks.5- Other things explained. The car uses 42mm drive shafts (The XV01 front drive shafts would fit), it is also able to use the double cardan drive shafts in the front (Essential when running a spool). Also for those who want to run the TC-01 as a stock class, the shell is able to be cut out and replicate the Formula-E cars accurately, or you can not cut some the the parts off and run it as more complete full shell to make it stronger.The whole thing looks fantastic, I cannot wait to see one of these in the flesh. Imagine what a MS version will be like!Here is the box, so you know what to rush in and buy from your nearest hobby shop :)Here is the video
