Three New Versions Of Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Enamel Watch As Tribute To Alfons Mucha

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Enamel Watch

Jaeger-LeCoultre has given three new faces to its Reverso watches, this time paying homage to famous painter Alfons Mucha. For this collection, Jaeger-LeCoultre has drawn inspiration from “The Seasons”, the artist’s emblematic 1896 series of decorative panels, to decorate three different models of the Reverso Tribute Enamel – each in a limited series of eight pieces.
The front face of each watch has been worked in guilloché of remarkable quality. Each color required hours of research to achieve its perfectly even hue, and to ensure it harmonizes with the colors of the painting reproduced on the reverse of the case.

When the watch is turned over, a veritable masterpiece reveals itself on the caseback. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Rare Handcrafts “Métiers Rares” master enameler faces multiple challenges in creating each of the three panels created by Alfons Mucha’s “Summer,” “Spring,” and “Autumn,” that feature on the reverse. Much of the complexity lies in working by hand to scale the original painting – measuring over a meter – onto a surface of 3 cm2, during the very process of enameling. The various colors and intricate patterns of the flowers, and the women that personify each season are reproduced in the timepieces, which are finally fired after several layers of protective coating.
The cases of the models are created from either white or yellow gold. Within each case that measures 45.5 mm x 27.4 mm is manually wounded 822A/2 caliber.
