Jaeger-LeCoultre launches new Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface
August 20, 2018: To mark its 185th anniversary, Jaeger-LeCoultre launches the new Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface, a highly anticipated version of the Reverso Tribute. The new vision of the iconic model brings together the flying tourbillon with the Duoface concept. Equipped with the new manually wound calibre, Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 847, this unique timepiece will be kept to a mere fifty pieces.
Remarkable in more ways than one, the technical feat achieved here is maintaining the tourbillon’s moving carriage and its sprung balance through the use of an ingenious ball-bearing system, all while still offering the freedom to express oneself fully on the back of the watch.
A single watch that offers two-time zones on two separate dials is at the heart of this revolutionary concept. The design of the Duoface has been completely revamped, resulting in an entirely new layout so that all the various components can fit into a platinum case measuring a mere 9.15 millimetres. The result is two hand-fittings in a single movement brought together with a grand complication.
A blue sunrayed dial and silvered hand-applied hour-markers adorn the front side, with Dauphine hands that seem to step aside as the haunting spectacle of the flying tourbillon takes centre stage. On the opposite side, the grained dial and Côtes de Genève finishes make the perfect housing for emblematic functions like a second time zone, small seconds, or the day/night indicator discreetly nestled at 2 o’clock.
