85 years young ! The Reverso continues to surprise us with its swivel case revealing two faces, two different identities. On this occasion, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents a new timepiece, the Reverso Tribute Gyrotourbillon. Slenderness meets complexity within the case of this star model of the year 2016. Powered by mechanical hand-wound Caliber 179, entirely developed and produced within the Manufacture, the Gyrotourbillon looks as if it is flying at the center of the dial. The Reverso Tribute Gyrotourbillon is a remarkable 30% slimmer in terms of both width and thickness. The round front dial features a day/night indicator at 11 o’clock. The two bi-axial flying tourbillon carriages perform one external rotation in just one minute, along with a 12.6-second internal rotation. Seconds are read off in a novel way by means of a graduated disk rotating at the rhythm of the Gyrotourbilon along with a blue arrow positioned to its left. Meanwhile, the back reveals the entirely skeleton-worked movement with its hand-decorated bridges, along with a dual-time display and a day/night indicator at 2 o’clock. This limited edition epitomizes the history and the excellence of Jaeger-LeCoultre, while promising new feats to come.
