To mark its 185th anniversary, Jaeger-LeCoultre is taking a new step in terms of mechanical and aesthetic expertise; Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface is a highly anticipated model of the Reverso Tribute. The new vision of the iconic model brings together the flying tourbillon with the Duoface concept, two techniques that represent absolute sophistication. Equipped with the new manually wound calibre Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 847. This limited edition will be kept to a mere 100 pieces, each representing a pure expression of the tradition of unique watchmaking expertise.
Designed with stylistic codes borrowed from Art Deco—the same that have characterised the legendary Reverso ever since its creation in 1931—this new opus pays homage to the original models, timepieces which are inseparable from both the history and heritage of the Manufacture. Timeless and inimitable, the specific codes of this collection have been applied with an impeccable level of respect. A blue sunrayed dial and silvered hand-applied hour-markers adorn the front side, with Dauphine hands that seem to step aside as the haunting spectacle of the flying tourbillon takes centre stage, swaying as though weightlessness at six o’clock.
On the opposite side, the grained dial and Côtes de Genève finishes make the perfect housing for emblematic functions like a second time zone, small seconds, or the day/night indicator discreetly nestled at 2 o’clock. With a simple move of the finger, the watch offers up one of its two faces, each possessing an aesthetic at once complimentary and diametrically opposed. The front, adorned with deep blue, is a bold expression of elegance. The opposite side, with a rough metal effect, strives for a sober and streamlined aesthetic. Both sides bear the same flying tourbillon, a feature that brings ultimate sophistication, its lower portion lodged within the platinum case, giving it a slightly rounded and curved shape. The effect is a nod or all-out salute to discerning collectors who are sure to be seduced and enchanted by the subtle touch.
