Hot off an impressive SIHH showcase, Jaeger-LeCoultre has unveiled an exquisite collection of limited edition Reverso Tribute Enamel timepieces, channelling three masters of the art world, Georges Seurat, Xu Beihong and Katsushika Hokusai.
To enhance the art of enamelling and engraving, mastered in the Vallée de Joux workshops, the Grande Maison had the idea of giving its iconic Reverso pieces two faces revealing a work of art. On the front, a finely hand-guillochéd dial, covered in translucent Grand Feu enamel which is in harmony with the back of the watch.
On the reverse, a painstakingly enamelled miniature of a painting with a particular technique paying homage to three styles: pointillism, ink wash painting and Japanese woodblock printing. In order to represent these three techniques, never before applied to enamel in miniature at Jaeger-LeCoultre, three of their greatest masters were selected through one of their works: Georges Seurat, Xu Beihong and Katsushika Hokusai.
For these pieces of art, the Reverso Tribute Enamel, with its iconic Art Deco styling, was chosen. A case in white gold was created especially to host the enamel miniature.
Each of these models is issued in an eight-piece limited edition and available exclusively in Jaeger-LeCoultre Boutiques. Check them out below.
