The house of Jaeger-LeCoultre introduces three exclusive new Reverso models highlighting the art of enameling and engraving, channelling three masters of the art world, Georges Seurat, Xu Beihong and Katsushika Hokusai.
Each of these models, issued in an eight-piece limited edition, features two different faces. On the front, there is a finely engraved guilloche dial covered in translucent Grand Feu enamel. The reverse side reveals an enameled miniature of a painting rendered in a technique representative of an iconic artistic style. In order to represent these three techniques, never before applied to enamel in miniature at Jaeger-LeCoultre, three of their greatest masters were selected through one of their works: Georges Seurat, Xu Beihong and Katsushika Hokusai.
For these pieces of art, the Reverso Tribute Enamel, with its iconic Art Deco styling, was chosen. A case in white gold was created especially to host the enamel miniature.
Reverso Tribute Enamel Georges Seurat features a miniature representation of Seurat’s famous painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.
Reverso Tribute Enamel Xu Beihong is inspired by a painting of one of the China’s most renowned painters. The front of the watch reveals a guilloched dial in lengthwise geometric patterns covered in opalescent ivory-tinted enamel.
