Jaeger-LeCoultre‘s iconic Reverso receives a special variant in celebration of the watch maker’s 185th anniversary. As a staple dress watch that can be found in the rotation of most watch connaisseurs, the Reverso gets its name from the watch’s design which allows it to reverse its case so that the glass front is protected — the concept was born in the sport of polo, where players required a watch that could withstand hard knocks and hits.

Fast forward today, the Art Déco watch retains its reversing case design, but now opts for a more ornate approach; rather than a stainless steel back, the watchmaker now incorporates contrasting dials and grand complications. For the Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface, we see the signature rectangular case in platinum that’s sized at 27.4mm x 45.5mm,  matched with a premium croc-pattern navy leather strap. Powered by JLC’s newly introduced Caliber 847 movement, the two faces for the watch are considerably different — one dial opts for a satin navy finish that is simple yet traditional and is complimented with rather stubby dauphine hands. The other side, on the other hand, is somewhat like a skeleton, exposing jewels and blue hardware, all while employing the 60-second tourbillon as a seconds display. A nice touch to this watch is that the tourbillon is visible via both sides.

Priced at $123,000 USD, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface will be limited to 50 pieces, and will only be available to select JLC boutiques.
