    The present Reverso Répétition Minutes wristwatch is numbered 378 of a limited edition of 500 pieces only. It features a minute repeating mechanism and the watch strikes the hour, quarter and minutes in a terrific tone. The silvered engine-turned dial is finished with black Roman numerals and is further enhanced with a glazed aperture, which allows the viewer to admire the strike mechanism regulator. The watch is preserved in excellent overall condition and minute repeating is in phase with a terrific tone and quality.

  • 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.
