Last Updated: May 3, 2024Tags: ,

Jaeger-LeCoultre transforms the middle of Sydney into a hands-on exploration of the Reverso. Travel into the Reverso Stories exhibition, an immersive journey through watchmaking artistry and the cultural evolution alongside this iconic watch. Experience how a polo player’s necessity became a timeless symbol of elegance.

‘Reverso Stories’ invites guests on an exploration of one of the most iconic timepieces in history. Visitors and watch collectors alike will delve into its heritage, artistry, technical prowess, and meticulous construction across four distinct sections: ‘Story of an Icon’, ‘Story of Style & Design, ‘Story of Innovation’, and ‘Story of Craftsmanship’. The exhibition showcases an impressive array of Reverso models – from seldom-seen archival treasures and dazzling high jewelry editions to contemporary masterpieces, including the groundbreaking Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 ‘Quadriptyque’, the first-ever wristwatch with four functional displays.

Beyond the displays, a live perlage demonstration offers a rare glimpse into the intricate world of watchmaking.

Jaeger-LeCoultre marks the Sydney installment of ‘Reverso Stories’ with a special unveiling: three limited-edition Reverso timepieces. These extraordinary watches celebrate the exquisite craftsmanship found in the Manufacture’s Métiers Rares™ (Rare Handcrafts) atelier, highlighting masterful enameling, gold-leaf paillonage, and intricate gem-setting techniques.

Collaboration with multimedia artist Yiyun Kang

Visitors will also experience ‘Origin’, a captivating multimedia installation created by Korean artist Yiyun Kang. This project is part of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s ‘Made of Makers’ initiative, which breaks down traditional boundaries by fostering collaborations between watchmakers and artists from diverse fields.

1931 Café

To fully immerse the visitors with the Art Deco ambiance, the 1931 Café offers a delightful refreshments for visitors within the exhibition. Guests can savor a complimentary refreshment while learning more about the timepiece.
