Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface L.E. Casa Fagliano
The iconic and timeless Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso was born in the polo fields of India in 1931. The purpose was to have a watch that had a swivel case so when polo players were playing, they could reverse the case over to protect the dial of the watch.
Casa Fagliano are a world renowned company who have been making polo and equestrian boots since 1892. Jaeger-LeCoultre partnered up with the Argentinian Bootmaker to create the Reverso Tribute Duoface L.E. Casa Fagliano. For this unique partnership, there are only 100 pieces for the world being produced. This limited edition timepiece will be exclusively available at Jaeger-LeCoultre boutique’s worldwide and will retail for 21,000 Euros (roughly $25,000 USD’s give or take)
This Reverso has a pink gold case measuring 49.4mm x 29.9mm in case diameter and has a slate grey sunray pattern dial with pink gold indices. When you reverse the case to the other side/face, it displays a Second-time zone and 24-hour day/night indicator. This second face is a silvered dial, with dual finishing: “Clous de Paris” guilloché on the background, and an opaline finish in the centre. This watch is powered by the in house Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface is the Calibre 854/2, a 167-component hand-wound movement with 42-hour power reserve.
The whole appeal of this watch of course is the strap. Casa Fagliano has created a two-tone cordovan leather strap, specially designed and hand-crafted for each piece by these famous Argentinian leather artisans. The strap is creafted in light brown with a darker brown shade on the turned-over flap and features a tone-on-tone overstitching on both sides of the dial’s gadroons. This gives the watch a lot of warmth, richness and character. It’s awsome to see a callaboration like this. It makes sense and combines the artistry of two brands with so much heritage who have a commitment to quality and design.
