Watches Wednesday: Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso Flying Tourbillon

To commemorate its 185th Anniversary, Jaeger-LeCoultre has introduced the new Reverso Tribute Flying Tourbillon Duo face. As we know, the tourbillon is one of the most refined and elaborate complications when it comes to timepieces.

This latest Limited Edition piece is equipped with a new manually-wound Calibre 847, which utilities an ingenious ball-bearing system that helps with maintaining the tourbillon’s moving carriage and sprung balance, thus enabling the ability to have 2 timezones on 2 separate dials. To accommodate these complexities, particularly two hand-fittings in a single movement brought together by a grand complication, Jaeger-LeCoultre had to completely revamp the casing, into that of a platinum one, measuring just 9.15mm with a blue sunrayed dial, and a rough metal effect on the opposite side. It is indeed the first time that the Maison had ever attempted to offer a timepiece that is a harmonious marriage of both the Duoface concept and the flying tourbillon. Oh, and if this is something hat you may be interested in,  there are only 50 pieces available globally.
