Jaeger-LeCoultre, one of Switzerland’s most prestigious haute horlogerie brands, has just confirmed it will take part in next month’s WatchTime New York event at Gotham Hall. (Click here for event details and tickets.) In this 85th anniversary year of the iconic Jaeger-leCoultre Reverso, the company will be showcasing several new releases from that collection, including the Reverso Tribute Calendar.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Calendar has the traditional Reverso swiveling case, made of 18k rose gold and measuring 49.4 mm x 29.9 mm in diameter and 12.09 mm thick. The watch is powered by JLC’s manufacture Caliber 853, a manual-winding movement that beats at 21,600 vph (3 Hz) and has 283 components , including 21 jewels, and a power reserve or 45 hours.
In the classical Reverso style, the watch has two dials, one on each side of the reversible case. The front dial — which has a silver-toned grained opaline finish, hand-applied gilt hour-markers and matching Dauphine-type hands — shows a traditional “complete” calendar, with hours, minutes, day, month, date, and a moon-phase indication at 6 o’clock.
The back dial features an anthracite Clous de Paris hobnail guilloché pattern, along with the same gilt hour-markers and Dauphine-type hands. Its displays include the indication of a second time zone on the main dial, along with a distinctive day-night indication, topped with a small triangular pointer for easy legibility. (This display is similar to the one used on the less-complicated Reverso Tribute Duo, the other new watch introduced this year in the Tribute collection.)
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Calendar comes on a brown alligator leather strap with an 18k rose gold folding clasp.
