Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Moon

Reverso Tribute Moon, the brand new model from the Reverso Tribute collection 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 hour-markers 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.
