Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Nonantieme Watch Q711252J
To celebrate the anniversary of the Reverso, the Reverso Tribute Nonantieme watch evokes the iconic Art Deco spirit of the collection, its reverse features an unexpected digital display. Inside the Reverso Tribute Nonantième, beats the new manual-winding Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 826. The unique nature of this 190-piece limited edition comes from the contrast between the classic elegance of the front of the watch and the extreme originality of its reverse.
The pink gold case with its signature gadroons frames a silvered, sunray-brushed dial with applied golden indexes and Dauphine hands. In the lower half of the dial, a moonphase display is set within the circle formed by the small seconds counter. Beneath 12 o'clock is a large date display, framed by an applied filet of pink gold that echoes the rectangular shape of the dial and case. The classically elegant aesthetic of the front dial gives no hint of the surprise concealed on the reverse side of the watch. Flipping the case over reveals an entirely new visual expression of some of watchmaking's most familiar complications.
The solid pink-gold caseback is dominated by two round apertures of different sizes, arranged like a figure-eight and encircled by gadroons that echo the rectilinear gadroons on the upper and lower edges of the case. The small upper aperture displays a semi-jumping digital hour indication. In the large aperture below the hour, minutes are displayed on a rotating disc that is partially concealed by a three-quarter plate lacquered in vivid blue - in the Atelier des Métiers Rares® - and sprinkled with tiny golden stars to depict the night sky. Within a small circle at the centre, an applied golden sun and moon, pass above a horizon, to indicate night and day. In the semi-circle below the horizon, a JL logo is set on a sunray-pattern background. Dramatic and captivating, it is unlike anything seen on a Reverso before.
