  • Catalogue Essay

    A limited edition, 1990s chronographic iterations of the hallowed Reverso, this execution of the complication is simply exquisite. The second dial is fully dedicated to the chronograph: a large main subdial shows the seconds, a smaller semicircle at 6 acts as 30 seconds counter, of course retrograde. The chronographic dial is skeletonized, allowing the beholder to actually admire most of the chronographic clockwork, especially how the pushers engage the column wheel. An ingenious device is present on the main dial: an indication of whether the chronograph is running or not. This feature is most welcome, as it allows the user to reliably - not "bliindly" - start and stop the chronograph "on the go", without reverting to the chronograph dial.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1833

    Not all companies in the watchmaking field have been able to stand the test of time quite like Jaeger LeCoultre, also known as the "watchmaker's watchmaker." Founded in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre and originally named LeCoutre, the firm provided watchmaking's top brands, such as Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet, the high-grade, unfinished mechanical movements with which they completed their watches.

    In the early 1900s, Cartier's watch supplier Edmond Jaeger sought out LeCoultre's help in creating the world's thinnest watches. The collaboration resulted in the creation of Cartier's earliest Tank and Santos watches, all housed with LeCoultre movements. The duo decided to merge in 1937, and the firm officially became the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand by which collectors know and adore it today. Some of the firm's most significant and important timepieces include the Reverso, the Memovox, the Atmos clock and, among modern watches, their Master Complications.
