Description

The Reverso Tribute Gyrotourbillon was introduced at SIHH 2016. It features the vintage-inspired 'Tribute' look with stick markers & dauphine hands, and JLC's signature Gyrotourbillon in the form of the double-timezone caliber 179. The platinum case measures 51.1x31mm across, making it significantly smaller than previous iterations of the Reverso Gyrotourbillon.

A veritable masterpiece showcasing the watchmaking skills and rare crafts (Métiers Rares®) cultivated by Jaeger-LeCoultre, the Reverso Tribute Gyrotourbillon is a stellar creation within the new 2016 collection. Its elegant and sophisticated case houses a movement equipped with an unusual Gyrotourbillon®. Vividly embodying the signature horological sophistication of Jaeger-LeCoultre on both faces, it springs a number of surprises including an entirely openworked back dial. This platinum model is issued in a 75-piece limited series.

Caliber 179 is a member of JLC's famous family of 'Gyrotourbillon' movements. It is made up out of 385 pieces including 52 jewels.
