Hands-On: The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Moon
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Moon.
Last year, I went active with one of my #1 Reverso models in late memory, the super complex Reverso Tribute Calendar . Indeed, this is fundamental that watch pared down a bit. Most importantly, it comes in a hardened steel case, for one. It’s additionally happy with being a double timezone with a date and moonphase marker rather than a more complicated triple schedule. Accordingly it is a considerable amount more easygoing than its elder sibling. The date is again situated at six o’clock and is shown by a little hand with a red bow tip.
Jaeger-LeCoultre has likewise given this watch a wonderful blue dial as an afterthought showing the second timezone (generally you’d utilize this to hold the time back home on the off chance that you were utilizing the watch while voyaging). This is probably as contemporary a tone as you’ll see from Jaeger-LeCoultre and it truly works here, in addition to theres decent differentiation between the opaline inside and the clous de Paris texture on the outside. There’s likewise a two-tone blue day/night marker at six o’clock and the applied records and cleaned hands. It’s a triumphant combination, and one which I truly like.
The Reverso Tribute Moon shows the time in two timezones, with the home time show on the back.
On the neighborhood time side, the watch a lot of takes after the Tribute Calendar, with an iced silver dial that permits the moonphase show to truly pop. Since the day and month gaps are gone, the company’s logo is additionally higher up to make better adjust in the upper part of the dial.
The watch includes a hand-pounded moon-stage on one side.
You’ll additionally see the various levels of the dial. The date show is recessed and doesn’t have the iced surface. It makes everything a lot simpler to peruse and offers another little detail to respect. Likewise, the hands, applied hour markers, and section ring are for the most part blue, standing apart pleasantly against the silver tone and fitting with the sky in the moonphase display.
The day/night pointer crosses both the smooth and clous de Paris segments of the home time dial.
The watch is controlled by a physically wound Jaeger-LeCoultre development, type 853A, which drives both tie shows, one on each side of the development. Shockingly, this development is generally a similar tallness as the one inside the Tribute Calendar, implying that Jaeger-LeCoultre could essentially place it in a similar case, which is the thing that has been finished. While 10.9mm remaining parts very slight moderately speaking, I would have enjoyed a much more slender profile if that were possible.
On the wrist, the principle dial looks fairly customary until you notice the blue accents.
The blue dial is considerably more current looking and the surfaces make it especially striking.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Moon is evaluated at $12,700 and it comes on a blue croc tie. It’s important that this is simply $1,300 more than the Reverso Tribute Duo, another hardened steel double time region, less the date and moonphase show. All things being equal, that watch shows a little seconds at six o’clock.
