Enjoy Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Repetition Minutes a Rideau Watch

Feb 07, 2011
The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Repetition Minutes a Rideau watch experienced its world premiere about three weeks ago in the course of the SIHH 2011 event.

Mesmerizing outside and equally reliable inside, this complicated timepiece is set in a rectangular-shaped white gold case(55 mm x 35.00 mm). The same material is utilized for an elegant bezel. It is equipped with a time setting crown, conventionally located at 3 oclock. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 30 meters.

The distinctive flair of the new Jaeger-LeCoultre watch is an exceptionally performed Venetian blind that serves to cover its open-worked dial by default. Composed of 270 individual parts, the blind comprises its own barrel. When sliding it sideways, the watch wearer automatically activates the minute repeater function.

The last-mentioned complication is associated with the brands proprietary manually-wound caliber 944 movement. Decorated and assembled by hand, it consists of 340 components. Skillfully adorned with 35 jewels, the movement operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour. The caliber incorporates two spring barrels, which ensure a 35-hour power reserve.

The minute repeater mechanism is a successful addition to the basic functions of hours and minutes. They are individually displayed by eye-catching blued hands. The face of the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Repetition Minutes a Rideau watch is completed with discreet hour-markers, which don't distract attention from its skeletonized background.

Protecting the display is a top quality sapphire crystal. The same glass is employed in manufacturing of the case-back. The final touch is provided by an alligator leather strap, which joins to an 18-carat white gold pin buckle.

A clever blend of advanced technology and irresistible aesthetic appeal, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre watch is offered in a limited edition of 75 pieces.
