Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin
The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin hand-wound watch has been updated for this year with three more cases and nine different combinations of materials!
According to the company, the face-lifted watch will be produced in a somewhat large rectangular case 55 millimeters long, 35 mm wide and 12 mm thick.
The choice of materials is limited to rose and white gold as well as stainless steel.
The rose gold will be available either with 31 diamonds totaling at 0.45 carats, or with 111 diamonds weighing 0.85 carats (a High Jewellery version.) The steel case will be sold only in one version with 30 diamonds (0.40 carats.)
As usual, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin is a study in understated luxury.
Its silvered guilloche dial features 12 finely crafted Arabic numerals and a pair of sword-shaped of hour and minute hands.
Unfortunately, the stainless steel version of the watch is not as legible as the one done in rose gold, since the steel hands do not look very contrast on the silver background. I wonder why they didn’t equip the steel version with blued hands: they would look absolutely marvelous!
The watches in question will be powered by a hand-wound JLC Caliber 846 ultra-thin movement, but there will also be a more affordable variant animated by a simple quartz movement.
