The Polaris is such an attractive watch that it can fit into almost any part of my daily life. I wear it as often as possible, says Cavill, who in the past year has joined Jaeger‑LeCoultre’s friends. “I first came across Jaeger‑LeCoultre after they invited me to the Jaeger‑LeCoultre Gold Cup Polo match. I was also fortunate enough to attend the lunch beforehand at Lord and Lady Cowdray’s house, where I had the great pleasure of being taught how to swing a polo club, sadly on foot, however, not from horseback!”

In a series of recent photographs for Jaeger‑LeCoultre, shot by Damian Foxe, Henry Cavill also chose to wear the Jaeger‑LeCoultre Polaris in its Chronograph iteration. The Jaeger‑LeCoultre Polaris Collection celebrates the 50th anniversary of the iconic Memovox Polaris watch from 1968.

An actor who brims with classic English style and is passionate about performing his own stunts, Henry Cavill made his feature film debut in The Count of Monte Christo. He was the first non-American to step into the iconic, Superman suit. Man of Steel, a worldwide box office hit became the highest-grossing Superman film of all time and resulted in Cavill’s two further reprisals of the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. Cavill captivated audiences in the Golden Globe award-nominated Showtime series The Tudors, and in Guy Ritchie’s spy drama The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Upcoming, Cavill stars in the psychological thriller Nomis opposite Sir Ben Kingsley and Stanley Tucci.
