Everyone wants exquisite quality and sophistication when they purchase an elegant timepiece. When you have the ability to customize a watch and have that exclusivity as well, you have obviously purchased a Jaeger-LeCoultre Atelier Reverso Classic Large Duo Small Second Watch. This program was unveiled as part of the brand’s 85th anniversary, and provides the customer with the ability to craft their own masterpiece of horological excellence. Allowing dozens of dial and strap options, the brand offers at least 5277 combinations, and with the the three new dial options for the men’s collection that number will increase.
The new dial options that are being introduced are a striking Electric Blue, a luxurious Military Marble and a breathtaking Tiger’s Eye. These new dial options just add another flair to this already outstanding timepiece. The watch itself is presented in a stainless steel case, crafted to 47mm by 28.3mm and only 10.3mm thick, sized to be noticeable but modest. The name of course hints at the two faces, powered by a single movement, displaying two time zones and water resistant to 30 meters. Featuring the hand wound JLC Calibre 854A/2 movement, the timepiece is comprised of 160 parts and 19 jewels, 40 hour power reserve and really just a very simple design. The clever timepiece comes with the duo dials that allow the wearer to flip between without ever removing from the wrist.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Atelier Reverso Classic Large Due Small Second Watches present a very Art Deco vibe, with the main dial in silver with a very detailed vertical brushed finish, and the hand guilloche center that has that small seconds indicator at 6 o’clock. The blued hands provide a touch of beauty, a mark of exquisite refinement and when you flip the case you come face to face with the second travel time dial. The dial features the Clous de Paris engraving and the day/night indicator. The three new dial options, each one truly magical add another level of brilliance to the brand design.
The Electric Blue is crafted with a matte blue register sitting with a blue Clous de Paris marking on the dial. Military Marble as one would expect is created with a matte green register that is encircled with a very unique green marble. Tiger’s Eye was masterfully designed with a reddish brown register in the center of the dial, with Tiger’s Eye stone surrounding it. The bands that have been created to enhance the beauty of these timepieces come in various shades and certainly make the dials stand out. The use of the exotic stones by Jaeger-LeCoultre is another example of original designs from the brand, and these Atelier Reverso Classic Large Due Small Second Watches offer a more unique look for those who prefer the uncommon timepiece on their wrist.
