Birthdays are special, and it’s not every day that a watch turns 90! Jaeger-LeCoultre is paying tribute to its most iconic timepiece Reverso collection just in time for its 90th anniversary. The Reverso needs several pats on the back as it’s pretty rare for a watch to be trendy and in tune with changing times even after being in production since its launch in 1931. Rare longevity such as this one needs to be celebrated, and what better way than the Reverso Tribute Duoface Fagliano? The limited-edition maintains the same Art Deco proportions of the original and its flip-over case. Featuring a burgundy-red dial and a pink gold case, the “Duoface” edition comes with a front dial that showcases the hours and minutes in golden markers and dauphine hands and a small second’s display at 6 o’clock on the burgundy-red lacquer dial. Flip it to find a more classic, silver color over a Clous de Paris guilloche. A smaller circle at 6 o’clock displays the day and night indication. The hand-wound Calibre 854A/2 movement working within allows the two dials to display a different time zone, which can be changed with the help of a small slider set in the top case-band of the watch. The watch is packed with 42 hours of power reserve. According to Catherine Renier, CEO of Jaeger-LeCoultre, the new year will be filled with more Reverso highlights. “Reverso is highly recognizable and unique. It is a timepiece that has lasted through the years with minor adjustments but always reinventing itself in terms of sophistication and complexity. This watch kicks off the celebration and is a symbol of the history of the Reverso,”
The Reverso Tribute “Duoface” Fagliano Limited is limited to just 190 pieces and comes with a sporty, two-tone cordovan leather and canvas strap crafted by the globally renowned Argentinian maker of polo boots, Casa Fagliano. These fine timepieces are a Jaeger-LeCoultre boutique exclusive, with each retailing for $23,900.
