Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Duo Luxury Watch Review

http://www.thewatchbox.com The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Duo is a modern masterpiece. Since the first double-dial dual time Reverso bowed in 1994, the twin time Reverso has become the definitive model in Jaeger-LeCoultre's 83 year-old evergreen Reverso lineup. And why not. Take a reversible watch, add a second dial, and back it with an in-house Jaeger-LeCoultre caliber 854; the result is a dual time that puts a new time zone at the tip of one's fingers. This 18-karat white gold Reverso uses the 42mm Grand Taille case; it's the ideal size for a Reverso. The watch gains its power from classical "golden ratio" proportions and Art Deco detailing. Consider the hand-engraved horizontal "gadroons" that articulate the top and bottom of the revolving case; they're the spitting image of 1931. And the dual dials are an event in themselves. The local time dial features white gold applied markers and matching 18-karat dauphine hands. The stunning bronze reference time dial matches a 12-hour primary register with a 24-hour AM/PM guide; both are adorned with gorgeous sword/kite hands with lume for nighttime reference.
