Jaeger-LeCoultre 216279 description

The idea for this unique watch came as a result of collaboration between Jaeger-LeCoultre and its Dutch partner Gassan that wished to create a remarkable piece that had to combine three components: craftsmanship, art and heritage as a tribute to the world famous Dutch master Vincent van Gogh. These 3 components came together in the Reverso à Eclipse of Jaeger-LeCoultre where the enamellers created an exquisite piece of art on the dial. The painting of Van Gogh’s infamous Sunflowers appears as a hidden treasure beneath the dial when the shutters are opened.

A unique reversible watch featuring a pink gold case equipped with the in-house Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 849, the Reverso à Eclipse ideally lends itself to reviving one of the rarest fine art traditions – miniature enamel painting – that demands particular virtuosity and patience. A simple gesture is enough to open the watch dial shutters concealing an exquisite miniature reproduction of Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers.

This unique masterpiece, of which only five examples have been crafted, was achieved in conjunction the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. The finished pieces can be admired at the Van Gogh Museum from September 4th 2015, when the new entrance building is officially inaugurated.
