With Jaeger-LeCoultre Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in 2005.
For the Reverso Neva, Jaeger-LeCoultre invented a new fine jewellery technique, the snow setting. The diamonds glide and undulate endlessly like the waves of Saint Petersburg's famous river, the Neva. To obtain the effect of snow glistening in the sunshine, the firm's gem setters juxtapose diamonds of different sizes so as to leave as little metal visible as possible. Each arrangement of diamonds is unique.
The present watch is set with 620 diamonds with a total weight of approximately 2.48 carats. It is furthermore preserved in new old stock condition.
