Jaeger-LeCoultre - Reverso à Eclipse Tribute to Vincent van Gogh

| No comment
The latest edition of the iconic Reverso (you can read its history here) is an exclusive model created by Jaeger-LeCoultre in collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the death of Vincent van Gogh.


Limited to just five pieces, this Reverso à Eclipse pays homage to the Dutch post-impressionist painter by featuring a miniature enamel dial which reproduces one of his celebrated masterpieces, the Sunflowers, and in particular a version painted in 1889 currently owned by the Van Gogh Museum.


The patented shutter system of the Reverso à Eclipse consists of a roller situated at 2 o'clock, a miniature chain and a screw to open or close the watch dial shutters engraved with numerals. A simple gesture is enough to unveil the 18-carat gold plate decorated with the enamel miniature of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers.

 

The pink gold case houses the Jaeger-LeCoultre manufacture Calibre 849, a manually wound mechanical movement crafted, assembled and decorated by hand which beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour and guarantees 35 hours of power reserve.

The Reverso à Eclipse Tribute to Vincent van Gogh (ref. Q37724EL) will be on display at the Van Gogh Museum from September 4th 2015, when the new entrance building is officially inaugurated. jaeger-lecoultre.com
