Jaeger-LeCoultre Presents The Reverso One Duetto Jewellery

Last Updated: December 24, 2023Tags: ,

Since its groundbreaking launch in 1931, the Reverso watch has captivated the hearts of watch enthusiasts worldwide. Initially designed for polo players, this rectangular timepiece quickly earned its reputation as a must-have accessory. Embraced by men and women from diverse backgrounds, the Reverso’s originality in design and refined Art Deco lines established it as an authentic design icon.

Within a year of its creation, feminine models of the Reverso emerged, subtly reimagining the original aesthetic codes. These models showcased the rectilinear geometry of the reversible case, distinguished by bevelled triangular lugs, horizontal gadroons, and a dial exuding chic simplicity.

A new expression of the alliance between Fine Watchmaking and High Jewellery

Continuing its legacy as a pioneer in Fine Watchmaking and High Jewellery, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents two exquisite expressions of the Reverso One. These timepieces are encased in lustrous pink gold, exemplifying the seamless fusion of craftsmanship and luxury. Every meticulous detail has been carefully considered to showcase the full potential of this iconic watch.

The Reverso One Duetto Jewellery unveils a stunning case adorned with a dazzling array of diamonds, encapsulating the spirit of sophistication and elegance. One model features a shiny black leather strap, while the other boasts a pink gold bracelet entirely set with diamonds.

When the Duetto complication is adorned with pink gold and diamonds

In 1997, Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced the Reverso Duetto, a stunning timepiece with two back-to-back dials ingeniously driven by a single movement. This intricate but complex mechanism allows both sides to display the same time correctly. The new Reverso One Duetto Jewellery models house the hand-wound Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 844, an in-house calibre with an impressive 50-hour power reserve.

This extraordinary watch presents the concept of the back-to-back dial in a rare and precious material. The case-back and curved sides are exquisitely embellished with a staggering 335 diamonds, gracefully framing the dial. The inverted diamond set into the crown further accentuates and exemplifies its jewellery-like allure. On the front, the silvered sunray dial showcases meticulous details, including applied Arabic hour numerals, golden brackets, and Dauphine hands, all reminiscent of the iconic Reverso One models.

The black dial, adorned with Art Deco-style gold hour markers, immediately catches the eye. Against a shiny black lacquer background, delicate gold flakes form light clusters, mirroring the diamonds’ brilliance adorning the case.

Setting by the Métiers Rares® workshop

Taking the Duetto concept to new peaks, the Reverso One Duetto Jewellery introduces a fully gem-set bracelet—an exceptional feat for the Reverso One collection. This High Jewellery piece is adorned with 719 diamonds, with the bracelet alone featuring at least 384 diamonds.

Crafted by the skilled artisans of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Métiers Rares workshop, the case and bracelet of the new Reverso One Duetto Jewellery showcase the superior grain-setting technique. Each diamond is meticulously anchored with nearly imperceptible gold beads, delivering remarkable sparkle. The great symmetrical placement of four diamonds within each pink gold link exhibits the masterful craftsmanship of the gem setters.

The Reverso One Duetto Jewellery reaffirms the watchmaking expertise and passion for jewellery savoir-faire that La Grande Maison has developed over several decades. It is a testament to the brand’s unwavering devotion to excellence, bringing together the worlds of horology and high-end jewellery in a timeless masterpiece.
