Jaeger-LeCoultre Finds "The One"

Designing the Reverso Duetto Moon.

The Reverso One collection pays eloquent tribute to femininity by embodying its every nuance in a range of models nurtured by creativity. Reverso One Réédition, Cordonnet or Duetto Moon: recognizing your very own means feeling your heart skip a beat, whatever the reason. Who can describe the origin of love at first sight, or the strength of an unshakeable bond? Once you’ve found your Reverso, it is forever “the One.”

The Reverso One magnifies every style, be it relaxed, sophisticated or delightfully iconoclastic. It ignites demure classics and gives them undeniable panache. While reviving the elongated shape of 1930s watch cases, the Reverso One has its finger firmly on the pulse of today’s fashion trends.

Its exquisitely balanced proportions invite that unique gesture, as a finger gently pivots the case. This can be done for the sheer pleasure of this smooth and intensely personal move, or else to reveal unexpected delights such as a second dial or an area that can be personalized by special words and secrets.

On the dial of the Reverso One, the new Arabic numerals radiate a sense of airy lightness, as if they had been handwritten in a lively, buoyant script. The Dauphine-type hour and minute hands sweep across an extremely subtle sunburst guilloché background exuding an aura of elegance that is a sure token of natural elegance. The four corners of the watch face evoke its proud heritage, while the case features the same slightly cambered profile of the historical models that gently hugged the wrist. The sunburst cradle motif lends a dynamic touch to the famous case swivel.

The Reverso One Réédition is quite simply that perfect LBD you’ve always dreamed of, the ultimate must-have that is just right in every situation. It’s is a woman’s faithful ally and enhances her seductive appeal, exactly like the famous little black dress that has become a true fashion heroine and was born in the same age as the Reverso. The Reverso One Réédition adopts the iconic design codes of the inspirational 1930s model, starting with its understated black dial. The exquisite proportions of its mini-sized case exercise such a powerful charm that one soon cannot bear to be without it. This irresistible charm extends right the way to its slender top-stitching-free alligator leather strap, while its back gives free rein to the imagination by providing space on which to engrave names, personal mantras or intimate messages.

The delightfully expressive and companionable Reverso One Cordonnet infuses daily living with a unique sense of pleasure. Its strap invites a playful touch, while establishing a refined and reassuring presence on the wrist. This creation offers a blend of vintage and modern by borrowing the idea of its dainty leather cord-strap from a 1936 timepiece, while transitioning smoothly from the past with a contrasting case that contributes to defining this resolutely on-trend watch. The graphic design of the two-tone case also blurs boundaries by combining rose gold and steel, while the blued Dauphine-type hour and minute hands stand out clearly against the white sunburst guilloché dial base. The tone for this model is definitively set by the cord-strap, softly embracing the wrist with a supremely chic and seductively casual air.

Jaeger-LeCoultre also wished to endow this collection with its horological expertise and thus invites women to succumb to their desire for a complicated watch. Powered by a mechanical manually wound movement, the Reverso One Duetto Moon displays two faces representing two separate worlds. 

On one side, it reveals the most feminine of horological complications, the moon phase. The mother-of-pearl lunar disc offers a striking and romantic depiction of the heavenly body, standing out against a spangled blue stay drawing the gaze into the depths of a dreamy night. The infinitely graceful dial stage-setting is composed of overlapping circles and radiant beams. Thus associated with the moon phase, the Duetto concept thus associated with the moon phase display, the Duetto concept based on two back-to-back dials driven by a single movement makes the Reverso One Duetto Moon a magnificently accomplished watch. It comes in an alligator strap version or with a steel or gold bracelet delicately accentuating the visual emotions it so artfully stirs.
