The Grande Reverso Night & Day Singapore Special Edition
Jaeger-LeCoultre unveils its latest tribute to Singapore 50th Jubilee Year.
Jaeger-LeCoultre unveils its latest tribute to Singapore 50th Jubilee Year, the Grande Reverso Night & Day Singapore Special edition. In commemorate Singapore’s 50 years of independence, its second side on the solid case back features an exquisite lacquering of the Singapore map and stating the years of Singapore independency, making this truly a collectable iconic piece.
The Grande Reverso Night & Day is powered by automatic calibre 967/B. Like all movements developed and built within the workshops of the Grande Maison in the Vallée de Joux, it features outstanding sturdiness and reliability. Its balance oscillates at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. It comprises 200 parts and provides a comfortable 42-hour power reserve, thus enabling its wearer to savour the carefree pleasure of strapping on a watch in the morning that has maintained an accurate display of the time while its owner enjoyed a good night’s sleep.
A single glance is enough to instantly recognise the spirit of the watch with the reversible case in all its pristine purity: a silver-toned dial framed by the three distinctive gadroons; applied black Arabic numerals apart from the 6 which is replaced by a useful complementary display. Blue facetted baton-type hands for the hours and minutes, as well as a triangular day/night pointer in the same colour.
Since Jaeger-LeCoultre consistently combines a keen aesthetic sense with an ingenious knack for facilitating information read-off in all circumstances, the dial of the night/day indicator is divided along its centre by a horizontal line marking off the lower part of the Clous de Paris guilloché motif, while linking numbers 6 and 18 so as to visually separate daytime and night-time hours. For Jaeger-LeCoultre, simplicity and subtlety thus clearly continue to work hand in hand.
2015 is a special year for Jaeger-LeCoultre in Singapore as the Maison opened its flagship boutique in the heart of the city of Orchard Road in Singapore and is proudly presenting a Singapore Special Edition Reverso limited to 50 pieces available exclusively at the Singapore Flagship with deliveries starting this summer.
