To mark its 185th birthday this year, Jaeger-LeCoultre has just launched a new Reverso Duoface which brings a flying tourbillon to the Duoface design. It joins previous anniversary complications such as the Gyrotourbillon 2 and Tribute Gyrotourbillon in the Reverso family.
Designed using the same attractive and stylish 1930s style codes as the Reverso Tribute Duoface, this new model has a revamped Duoface 9.15mm thick platinum case. On one side there is a blue sunray dial with silvered hand-applied hour markers and dauphine hands. On the other side you will find a silver grained dial and Côtes de Genève finishing along with the second time zone, small seconds, and day/ night indicator. A watch with two time zones on two dials.
Both sides show the eponymous flying tourbillon, which as been situated so that its lower section curves into the platinum case.
Powering the tourbillon is the new manual-wind in-house Calibre 847, which has 31 jewels, beats at 21,600VPH, and a power reserve of 43 hours.
This new piece is smaller than the Reverso Tribute Gyrotourbillon mentioned earlier, measuring a wearable 45.5mm x 27.4mm x 9.15mm, and with a water resistance of 30m. It comes a blue alligator leather strap with an 18 carat white gold buckle.
Coming in a limited edition of fifty pieces, the new Reverso Tributon Tourbillon Duoface has an RRP of CHF 122,000.
