Jaeger-LeCoultre : quatre nouvelles versions de sa Reverso Tribute Small Seconds

Four new renditions of the Reverso Tribute Small Seconds

For 2023, the designers of the Grande Maison have redesigned the case of the Reverso Tribute in pink gold or steel (water-resistant to 30 meters). Thinner by almost 1 millimeter than the current case, it is only 7.56 mm thick! That’s still 10% less!

As a reminder, the sliding and reversible mechanism of the Reverso makes it one of the most complex in watchmaking; hence the challenge of reducing their thickness… Comprising more than 50 components – including nearly 40 dedicated to the pivoting mechanism alone – the cases are entirely produced and assembled by hand in the JLC factory by a specialized team. .

The manufacturing process for sunburst dials is both complex and delicate. The base of the dial is first galvanized to give a metallic shine and protect the metal from oxidation. Then, a fine metal brush draws very fine, almost imperceptible lines on the surface, creating a sunburst pattern that intersects precisely in the center of the dial.
