The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso series’ has easily become a timepiece collection for the ages, as it’s rectangular-shape along with revolving case has sheltered various complication structures over the past few decades. It is a piece that perfectly embodies sophisticated elegance and consists of nonchalant properties, as well as bold and daring elements at times. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s latest Reverso timepiece, the Reverso Tribute Moon, is a masterpiece among its fellow Reverso dubbed creations, as it brilliantly demonstrates the true purpose and greatness of the Reverso series.
The Reverso Tribute Moon adopted it’s design codes from last year’s release, the Reverso Tribute Calendar, however, it did not include the day of the week and month calendar feature as displayed on the Tribute Calendar model. This may feel like crucial details to include on the Reverso Tribute Moon, but because of this minimalistic configuration it gained more space on the grained silver dial and a higher up logo position in which these two windows would have made it almost impossible to accomplish. Furthermore, most Jaeger LeCoultre full calendar timepieces are without a recess button for the quick setting of the day of the week to begin with. This results in manually speeding up the hour hand until you get to the correct day of the week, thereafter using the quick-set pushers for the alternative indications. And as such, the Reverso Tribute Moon allows you to manage only the date and its striking hammered moon feature with ease.
One of the most unique qualities the Reverso Tribute Moon possesses is that once you flip its case, the watch takes on another appearance all together. On the reverse side, the dark blue dial prevails with a Clous de Paris guilloché motif, and the central part is embellished with iridescent finish that provides the time indications with a translucent presence. This reversible dial lets you set the time for an additional time zone of your choosing via a concealed sliding trigger located at the top of the case. The timepiece includes a graphical day-to-night feature, which not only adds esthetic allure but also serves as an important function for telling you whether its day or night when your endeavors take you airborne and conflict with your sleeping schedule or when you simply forget yourself in your work until morning arrives.
The Reverso Tribute Moon is relevantly disparate from it’s predecessor the Reverso Tribute Calendar, so in order to not cause any waves with owners of the prior Reverso model. Jaeger LeCoultre announced Tribute Moon with a relatively reduced price, but don’t let that discourage you, this timepiece is just as valuable and as exquisite as any other piece in the Reverso collection, and may very well be the “holy grail” of anybodies watch collection. It can also be a great timepiece as your lone Reverso or as part of a one of a kind collection sporting the most luxurious, extravagant, and peerless pieces to hit the horology industry.
