Why the limited edition Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface Tourbillon is worth a second look

Created to mark the manufacturer's 185th anniversary, the watch has a limited run of 50 pieces.

TRADING FACES

You’d be forgiven for thinking there’s nothing especially novel about Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso Tribute Duoface Tourbillon since so much has already been done with that collection. But this is in fact the first time a Duoface – named for its two dials showing two time zones – is sporting a tourbillon.

In classic Reverso style, the “regular” face keeps it simple: sunray-brushed blue dial, applied indices and dauphine hands, with the flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock. Unlike many Reversos, however, the tourbillon is also viewable from the other, more ornate side, and features a seconds track on the tourbillon cage. Since it was created to mark the manufacture’s 185th anniversary, it is limited to 50 pieces in platinum.
