JLC’s resolution was to place the chrono seconds totalizer entrance and heart, with a retrograde minute totalizer within the form of a semi-circle proper beneath it. This protects a outstanding quantity of house, and simply permits timing occasions as much as half-hour with out even having to squint. The manually wound JLC 860 caliber getting used right here is model new, engineered particularly for this watch, and has a complete of 52 hours of energy reserve and makes use of a column wheel and horizontal clutch within the mechanism. The selection to go together with a horizontal clutch, we had been advised, was out of consideration for the distinctive geometry of the Reverso case and the pure bodily limitations of what can be doable in creating the motion within it. As an added bonus, the chronograph facet of the case is tastefully skeletonized, permitting a peek on the mechanism and presenting a distinction with the standard and sober time telling facet up entrance. The entrance dial on the chrome steel model of the chronograph is a really enticing slate grey with a delicate sunburst end, and its fundamental black on the pink gold reference.
The case is simply shy of 30mm broad and measures 49.4mm from lug to lug. It’s 11.4mm tall, which works very nicely on the wrist. It has simply the correct amount of wrist presence and regardless that it’s based mostly on the traditional Reverso from the Thirties, it feels modern in its sizing whereas protecting the identical common proportions of one of the best Reversos from the previous. JLC is highlighting that the Reverso makes use of the “Golden Ratio” of their present marketing campaign, and it actually does really feel like if it had been only a hair wider with out growing in size (or vice-versa) it might throw every little thing off.
The pink gold reference has a promoting worth of $37,400, and the chrome steel will retail for $21,400. Jaeger-LeCoultre
