MODERN EXPRESSION OF ART DECO
Reaffirming Jaeger-LeCoultre’s mastery of fine watchmaking and rare handcraft techniques, these boldly feminine interpretations of the Reverso are jewels to be worn. In two colour variations, these novelties feature a richly decorated case that pays direct tribute to Art Deco’s geometric style.
INSPIRED BY ITS GEOMETRIC SPIRIT
Art Deco brought about an elegance that emphasised clean and strong lines as an organising principle. It is this design language that the talented artisans of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s in-house Métiers Rares® atelier have translated for the Reverso One Precious Colours, creating a geometric pattern that covers the entire case-back and wraps around the case sides to frame the dial.
MODERN GEOMETRIC PATTERN
The Art Deco inspired geometric pattern on the verso of the timepiece is executed in miniature-painted grand feu enamel with diamond-set accents, creating an optical illusion of depth and movement.
With the front dial facing outwards, the Reverso One Precious Colours has a rich and elegant presence, its white mother-of-pearl dial contrasting with the vivid colours of its enamelled frame and the sparkle of the diamond-set gadroons and lugs.
THE BEAUTY OF ONE
The dial is finely detailed with the narrow gold brackets in each corner, the applied numerals and the Dauphine hands that are signatures of all Reverso One jewellery models. The watch is fastened to the wrist by a shiny alligator strap, colour-matched to the case decoration.
TOUR-DE-FORCE OF DECORATIVE CRAFTS
Presented in shades of blue with black on a pink gold background, or in different tones of green on a white gold background, by turning the swivelling case over, the Reverso One Precious Colours becomes a piece of high jewellery decorated by the Atelier of Metiers Rares.
A HIGH-WATCHMAKING HEART
Concealed within the case, the movement that powers the Reverso One Precious Colours is testament to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s commitment to mechanical excellence. Developed and produced entirely within the Manufacture, the hand-wound Calibre 846 was created specifically for the Reverso and, in keeping with Jaeger-LeCoultre’s philosophy of product integrity, is shaped to follow the contours of the rectangular case.
THE BIRTH OF AN ICON
In 1931, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched a timepiece that was destined to become a classic of 20th-century design: the Reverso. As an object that so deftly synthesised form and function, it has become one of the most recognisable watches of all time, looking as fresh and modern today as when it first appeared.
While its blank metal flip side had begun as a purely functional solution to avoid damage to the dial, it was an ideal surface for personalisation with monograms, emblems or personal messages using lacquer or engraving.
CREATING STORIES SINCE 1931
Being the perfect canvas for artistic expression, personalisation has been at the core of Reverso since its creation. With 180 skills under one roof, the Atelier de Metiers Rares of Jaeger-LeCoultre is the perfect place to bring personalisation to life. From engraving to enamelling, the back of the Reverso offers endless possibilities for a made to order creation among different combinations of dial motifs and colours. Swivelling its case allows one to unfold its own story.
