Denoted most importantly by its traditional styling and stick files, the Reverso Tribute assortment has been filling consistently as of late, however this most recent platinum-cased version of 50 pieces is probably really beguiling. Marginally taking after the rectangular appeal of the Rolex Cellini Prince, the new Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface, another model from Jaeger LeCoultre is a taking a slight deviation from their past releases.

Its plan discretely weds the sunburst blue tint of the Reverso Tribute little seconds, with the high watchmaking style of the Reverso Tribute Gyrotourbillon in a solitary bundle, all while keeping a retail cost that is in any event a touch more receptive than the behemoth Gyro—$123,000, to be exact. These Duoface models specifically convey amazing flexibility as instead of a steel back, its wearer can switch back and forth between two unmistakable dials, the two of which whose time can be set autonomously of each other.

Powered by the new JLC type 847, the hand-wound unit is tastefully compact, estimating a humble 27.4mm wide, 9.15mm thick, and just 45.5mm haul to-carry. Shockingly this is more modest than the equilibrium of the Reverso Tribute line, and more modest than essentially any Duoface models in the assortment too. I’ve for some time been inclined toward the more moderately measured Reverso models, and honestly I think estimating this new delivery the manner in which they did was a brilliant move. The Reverso was never intended to be a huge and pompous watch, and any individual who’s always taken a stab at one of the larger than usual Reverso Squadra models will confirm that greater is unquestionably worse for this situation.

While the more customary blue dial of this new delivery has a lot of allure, the tender loving care of its rival side isn’t anything short of outstanding. A silver grained dial, Geneva striping transmitting from the kickoff of its uncovered tourbillon, and its astutely planned tourbillon connect are totally completed to a standard that has for quite some time been normal from JLC. Any sort of mostly openworked watch winds up coming off as in any event somewhat gaudy, anyway I presume that in these compact measurements the Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface will figure out how to fly a little under the radar. With 46 Reverso models effectively in the index, dislike the assortment was lacking in alternatives nowadays, particularly considering JLC had as of late managed this down from some place north of 80+. All things considered, when they come to the table with something as smooth as this I’m not going to complain.
