REVERSO TRIBUTE DUOFACE FAGLIANO
REVEL IN RED
To celebrate the 90th anniversary of its icon, Reverso, born back in March 1931, the manufacture unveils a burgundy-hued limited series, issued in just 190 pieces.
In 2018, Jaeger-LeCoultre kicked off a fruitful partnership with the Argentinean family-run firm Casa Fagliano which would create straps for its watches. Since then, editions are regularly showcased proposing the iconic watch, first released in March 1931, boasting these strands of leather, handcrafted in the traditional way. This time round, another anniversary offers the watchmakers from Le Sentier to propose a new limited edition, the Reverso Tribute Duoface Fagliano. Just like all Duoface models since 1994, this timepiece features a dual time display. Its dial dazzles with a wine-lee-colored sunburst lacquer endowed with a host of nuances. The slimline golden-colored indexes are hovered over by traditional dauphine-style hour and minute hands. A small-seconds completes this scenescape. When you turn over the watch, the caseback is dedicated to a second time zone with reveals a totally different face. A silvered, stain-brushed Clous de Paris guilloché pattern encircles the time data and a day/night indicator.
The rose-gold fashioned rectangular case (47×28.2×10.3 mm) optimally protects the 854A/2 caliber. This hand-wound movement delivers a power reserve of 42 hours to the watch. The second time zone can be set ever-so easily via the invisible corrector set in the upper part of the case.
Like the previous pieces made by the craftspeople from the well-known Argentinean leather goods’ maker, which specializes in creating bespoke polo boots, this Reverso is complemented by a strap made from canvas and cordovan, a brown-red horse leather, clasped by an ardillon buckle.
