Reverso Tribute Moon
When complications and vintage-inspired design come together, the result is a watch fit for connoisseurs. The Reverso Tribute Moon channels the spirit of 1931, its front drawing inspiration from the original Reverso watch. Its silvered dial, in a grained finish that accords beautifully with the stainless steel case, has blue-toned hourmarkers applied by hand. Their intense hue is echoed in the blued hands, as well as on the collection’s emblematic railtrack minute circle that runs around the dial. At six o'clock, like a window onto the sky, a moon disc hammered into shape entirely by hand shows the progression of the lunar orb across the starry heavens. The date is indicated by a crescent moon set on the end of a delicate hand at its rim. Another face is revealed when you turn it over. Like every watch in the Tribute collection, the reverse is endowed with a second time zone courtesy of the Duo concept. A trigger discreetly built into the top of the case allows the second time zone to be set, without compromising the aesthetics of the watch. A Clous de Paris guilloché motif runs around the perimeter of this deep blue reverse dial, while baton hour-markers and Dauphine hands are set against the opaline finish of its centre. An eye-catching day/night indicator offers up the sun and the moon in an extension of the starry metaphorical conceit behind this inspiring watch.
Reverso Tribute Duo
All the subtle art and expertise of Jaeger-LeCoultre are discernible in the timeless elegance and discretion of the Reverso Tribute Duo with its pink gold case. Driven by the Duo concept, this watch offers two contrasting dials – both equally refined and each displaying a different time zone. Light shimmers off the silvered grained finish of the dial on the front, creating a delicate foil for hand-applied hour markers and an utterly charming small seconds at six o’clock. Its rounded curves bring a hint of softness to the pure geometrical linearity of this watch, whose Art Deco design reflects its 1931 inspiration. The reverse shows local time displayed against an anthracite-grey dial, its fathomless depth accentuated by the juxtaposition of two finishes – a Clous de Paris guilloché around the perimeter, and an opaline finish in the centre. The day/night indicator underscores the rounded contours and brings added character to this striking watch.
