New Grande Reverso Ultra-Thin 1931 Watch by Jaeger-LeCoultre
Ever since it was founded by Antoine LeCoultre in 1833, the Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmaking company has been responsible for creating some of the most exceptional timepieces in existence. Honoring the fulfillment of 8 decades since the first Reverso model came to be, the famed Swiss watchmaker decided to release a brand new version of the Reverso Ultra-Thin 1931 watch.
The watch stays true to its original design cues from the 30s, and so it flaunts an ultra-thin Reverso case that comes in 18k pink gold for a touch of opulence. This 46.8mm case houses a 2.95mm manually wound movement that includes 19 jewels and boasts a power reserve of 45 hours as well as an operating frequency of 3Hz.
The dial of the timepiece is chocolate-colored and contrasts nicely with the gold-plated, dagger-shaped hands. Moreover, the hour markers flaunt a classic baton shape except the 12 o’clock numeral, while a “Reverso” engraving links the timepiece with its historical counterparts. As a finishing touch, the cordovan leather strap was sketched out by Casa Fagliano, while a pink gold pin buckle ensures that the piece sits firmly on the wearer’s wrist.
We can expect to see this timepiece for the first time during Geneve’s Salon International de la Haute Horologie that is scheduled to take place between January 20 and 24, 2014.
