Famed Argentine shoemaker Casa Fagliano is teaming up with the great watchmaking brand Jaeger-LeCoultre to create an exceptional watch. In 2018, the Reverso Tribute Duoface demonstrated the delicateness of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s craftsmanship as well as its ability to work in contrasts. The Duoface concept is pushed to the limit here as it presents two dials with a refined design, each equipped with a different timezone. This discreet and timeless elegance is captured in a rose gold case. The color heats up the two-tone cordovan leather bracelet created by Casa Fagliano’s illustrious artisans. Founded in 1892, this brand works with soft and supple leathers that are reputed for their resistance and respect for ancestral tradition.
Once the legendary Reverso pendulum is activated, the wonders of LeCoultre’s expertise attracts the gaze. On the reverse side, the satiny slate grey dial is equipped with hand-applied indexes that echo out to the dauphine hands. Its geometric lines, typical of Art Deco, reflect the watch’s ‘1931’ inspiration. Then, the reverse side reveals itself just as local time presents itself in a silver dial. The night/day indicator also highlights the presence of rounded lines: this trait gives a touch of personality to this object of character.
Next year, the Reverso Tribute Duoface will be distributed in 100 copies – 100 timepieces only to highlight the exclusivity of this collaboration between two artisanal giants. Engraved on the back of the watch, the note “Limited Edition – One of 100” highlights even more the absolute refinement given off by its lines and composition. This prodigious piece will delight collectors, and is available now only in Jaeger-LeCoultre stores.
