Jaeger-LeCoultre’s legendary Reverso personalized by famous cartoonist Zep

September 12, 2011: Jaeger-LeCoultre has presented a unique Reverso bearing the stamp of Zep - the famous cartoonist of “Titeuf” comic series. For the 80th anniversary of Reverso, Zep personalized a dial in enamel of a Reverso à eclipses in pink gold. This artistic execution will be issued as a unique piece.

Zep, a renowned Swiss artist, drew his inspiration from a visit to the Manufacture last April. The unique Reverso customized by Zep in enamel and pink gold will be auctioned by the Artcurial auction house on November 29, 2011 in Paris for the benefit of Monaco Association against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Zep, commenting on his contribution, said, “I have always been fascinated with miniaturization and aesthetics of mechanical movements. The idea of slipping Titeuf into a Reverso with its parts so complex and subtle seemed obvious to me. It is also reminiscent of Charlot of Modern Times. I hope that my character will not impede the legendary precision of the Reverso.”
