2011 marks 80- glorious years of watch making for Reverso and 150 years for Unification, so Italy is sure going to be gripped in the festive mood. And to celebrate the festivities Jaeger-leCoultre has come out with exclusive limited edition goodies especially for the Italian market. Limited to 150 special edition steel watches and 50 set in 18 carat rose gold, the company is out with the new Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Italico and Reverso 976 Italico.
The stunning special dial features “vertical guilloché decoration, highly sober Arabic numerals, and fine blued hands.” The 8’oclock marker is replaced with the letter R in Roman alphabets to remind the rare octoginta, 80. The watch measures 2.94 millimeters in thickness, making it the thinnest Reverso to date.
