This year’s novelties from Jaeger-LeCoultre are a veritable treasure trove of Reversos. But this was no happenstance, as the Maison has strategically focused its production and marketing efforts on rekindling the popularity of this iconic line. And with good reason – the time is ripe to capture the hearts and minds of watch aficionados. The leitmotif that unites these releases is none other than the “golden ratio” of 1.618, an ancient and symmetrical principle of aesthetic beauty. In fact, the Reverso’s case is itself a masterful embodiment of this divine proportion. And now, in the grandest stage of them all – the 2023 Watches and Wonders – Jaeger-LeCoultre unveils these horological marvels.
REVERSO TRIBUTE DUOFACE TOURBILLON.
With great pride, La Grande Maison reveals the Reverso Tribute Duoface Tourbillon in pink gold – a breathtaking homage to its inaugural tourbillon wristwatch, the Reverso Tourbillon, which first graced the world stage three decades ago. This magnificent creation is a magnificent tribute to the Calibre 847, which debuted in 2018 and stands as a testament to the Maison’s unwavering mastery of tourbillons. And as if that weren’t enough, the Duoface concept is also brilliantly incorporated, endowing this timepiece with dual dials that exude two distinct aesthetics. On the reverse dial, a second time zone and a day-night indicator serve to further augment the already impressive array of functions.
REVERSO HYBRIS ARTISTICA CALIBRE 179
Crafted in accordance with the Golden Ratio’s harmonious proportions, the Reverso is revered in watchmaking circles as a veritable canvas for artistic expression. And now, in the year 2023, Jaeger-LeCoultre unveils the Reverso Hybris Artistica Calibre 179 – a masterpiece that seamlessly blends the Maison’s technical prowess in multi-axis tourbillons with the finest artistic craftsmanship. The horological virtuosity of the Calibre 179 is magnificently amplified by the skills of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Métiers Rares® (Rare Handcrafts) artisans, who have imbued this timepiece with a transcendent beauty that must be seen to be believed.
REVERSO TRIBUTE CHRONOGRAPH
Conceived in 1931 as one of the first wristwatches intended specifically for sports, the Reverso’s pioneering swiveling case was ingeniously designed to shield it from the rigors of polo. But its allure extended well beyond the playing field, captivating watch enthusiasts across the globe. And now, in 2023, the Reverso Tribute Chronograph pays homage to the watch’s sporting roots by incorporating the quintessential sporting complication – the chronograph. Perpetuating the inventive spirit that has propelled Jaeger-LeCoultre for nearly two centuries, the new Calibre 860 is a stunning synthesis of chronograph and double-sided time display, drawing inspiration from the inaugural Reverso Chronograph of 1996.
REVERSO TRIBUTE SMALL SECONDS
Embodying the exquisite artistry of the Maison, the four new Reverso Tribute Small Seconds models add a fresh burst of vitality to the collection, featuring an array of captivating dials in a range of mesmerizing hues, from classic silver to opulent burgundy and noir black. And since these timepieces are Monoface Reversos, a quick flip of the case exposes the closed case-back, an ideal canvas for bespoke engravings and other personalized adornments that elevate these watches into truly unique masterpieces.
REVERSO ONE PRECIOUS COLOURS
As a timeless icon of Art Deco design, the Reverso has endured through the years as an ever-modern marvel since its inception in 1931. Originally crafted for the sport of polo, the Reverso swiftly made its way into the realm of femininity, proving that La Grande Maison’s dedication to producing technically advanced timepieces was truly unbounded by gender. Despite the ever-changing societal landscapes and fickle preferences of fashion, the Reverso has remained steadfastly true to its origins, exceeding all expectations and transcending the limitations of its era. And in 2023, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents a fresh take on the Reverso’s feminine side with the stunning Reverso One Precious Colours, which boasts two entrancing colorways and a lavishly adorned case that pays homage to the iconic Art Deco aesthetic.
REVERSO SECRET NECKLACE
The Reverso Secret Necklace is a magnificent piece of jewelry that offers a fresh and elegant way for modern women to flaunt the iconic Reverso. The jewel is a true testament to the Reverso’s enduring ability to reinvent itself while staying true to its original design codes. Set entirely with diamonds and onyx in an exquisite Art Deco pattern, the watch sits suspended from a supple chain necklace of pink gold links and onyx beads that gracefully contours the neck. The Reverso Secret Necklace is the perfect fusion of technical excellence and high jewelry craftsmanship, embodying Jaeger-LeCoultre’s unparalleled expertise in both.
