When Jaeger-LeCoultre decided to re-interpretate his mythical Reverso model from 1931 to celebrate its 80th birthday, the result was beyond expectations. Sculpted in platinum, the legendary Art Deco case has been en-larged to house the Gyrotourbillon 2. Composed of 373 parts and 58 rubis, the present model goes beyond limits already achieved with the 1st edition of the Gyrotourbillon 1. While the Gyrotourbillon 1 is beating at 21'600 alternances per hour, the present Gyrotourbillon 2 is impressively calibrated for 28'800 alternances per hour. Never seen on a wristwatch previously, the cylindrical spring allows a more regular and constant deployment than a flat spring as the energy contained is spread more evenly.
The speed of the revolving cage was enhanced to gain more precision and to even up all the possible loss of time due to the various cage positions. The outer cage makes one revolution every 60 seconds, while the the inner one at a rate of 18.75 seconds. Another technical prouesse is the single barrel offering 50-hour power reserve to this technical marvel. 80 years after the launch of the Reverso, anyone can appreciate why this state-of-the art model is now part of the collection called "horological excellence".
Limited to only 75 pieces worldwide, this amazing wristwatch is a must have for any lover of complicated timepieces.
