REVERSO TRIBUTE ENAMEL "TIGER"
REVERSO TRIBUTE ENAMEL “TIGER”
UNFOLD THE STORY OF CRAFTSMANSHIP
In 2022, over nine decades after the Reverso was born, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents the latest episode in this story: the Reverso Tribute Enamel “Tiger” – a remarkable expression of the Manufacture’s craftsmanship and creativity. Created to celebrate the Lunar New Year under the sign of the Tiger, the new timepiece allies enameling to engraving, demonstrating our Maison’s exceptional craftsmanship.
WHEN WATCHMAKING MEETS ARTISTRY
To maximize the sense of volume and bring depth to the engraving, the artisan engraver used a technique called modelled engraving, using differently sized chisels, to chisel and sculpt the metal step by step – a precise and exacting task that requires absolute focus and remarkable dexterity.
The dial of the Reverso Tribute Enamel “Tiger” features the opaque black grand feu enamel, replicated on the case back. The elegant simplicity of the Reverso Tribute dial, with its faceted appliqué hour-markers, chemin de fer minutes track, and Dauphine hands – in this case, perfectly matched to the pink gold of the case – places full value on the subtle beauty of the glowing black background.
