Just received my Geographic, so I'm happy to post (finally - because those 1000 hours go by very slow!), pictures of my 1st JLC.

Not my watch, although it is my wrist, but probably of interest here. A JLC skeletonised Gyrotoubillon 1 in red gold, limited to 30 pieces and retailing at £290,000.

Hello ,new here i have my grandfathers jlc it is a ss case and from 1945 ,how do i post pictures as i would like to know its type.thanks .ian
You can probably better understand the design philosophy of this Master Hometime (dualtime) if you look at its predecessor:
As you can see, instead of a 24-hour sub-dial, the previous version includes a jour-et-nuit sub-dial that indicates only day and night. I suspect that for the current version, JLC aims to have a more symmetrical dial and thus use a complete circular subdial for the day/night indicator to balance the small seconds subdial.
I much prefer this interface or implementation to the other ones such as those commonly found in many GMT watches (e.g., Rolex GMT, etc.). The reason is that it is much more intuitive to tell time from a watch in a 12-hour format as this is what we have been trained to do. The other implementation requires me to learn the "new" system to figure out the reference time. In addition, the skeleton hour hand, when not in use, can be hidden underneath the main hour hand, giving the watch a very clean look. By contrast, the other GMT implementation always has a distinct (and somewhat out of place as they are usually in some bright color) extra hand all the time.
Thanks, Daniel; those are interesting comments. It really is a beautiful watch.
