Equipped with the new Manufacture Calibre 860, the Reverso Tribute Chronograph has succeeded in meeting a dual challenge: displaying the time on both sides, but also completely reinventing the indications display of the chronograph in a rectangular case. Beneath the sobriety of the front with its grey-blue sunray dial, an open-worked reverse of fascinating complexity reveals the mechanism of the retrograde chronograph. A mastery of fine watchmaking to be admired as much for its mechanical complexity as for its exceptional finishes: applied hour-markers and minute track floating above the movement, blue chronograph hands, bevelled bridges… unique and versatile, the Reverso Tribute Chronograph comes with a pair of interchangeable straps: one in leather and blue canvas, the other all-leather in a Casa Fagliano design.

A CHRONOGRAPH SHAPED FOR REVERSO
The Reverso Tribute Chronograph not only indicates the hours and minutes on both sides, but also reinvents the display of the chronograph. Adapted to the rectangular case, the chronograph offers an unexpected retrograde 30-minute counter and a large central second, for the utmost legibility.
AN INTRICATE CHRONOGRAPH MECHANISM
The retrograde 30-min counter is a pure watchmaking twist to transform circular motion into “come and go”. Composed of 14 components, it allows the minute hand to return to its initial position in a fraction of a second. Thanks to this display, the complication adapts perfectly to the rectangular shape of the watch.
AN OPEN-WORK DIAL, A WINDOW INTO THE INTRICACIES
Showcasing the complexity of Calibre 860, the dial is open-worked. The bridges are meticulously designed to highlight the key components of the movement such as the fascinating column wheel that regulates the chronograph mechanism. They are also decorated with Côtes de Genève and sharply bevelled.
INSPIRED BY THE PAST, SHAPED BY THE FUTURE
Capitalising on its swivelling concept, the Reverso Tribute Chronograph marries watchmaking tradition to modern aesthetics. The sophisticated recto echoes the original Reverso while its open-work verso is resolutely modern.
SPORTY DESIGN, HIGHLY LEGIBLE DISPLAY
The verso of the watch reconnects its sporty complication to the roots of fine watchmaking. The dials, consisting in two rings integrated to the calibre’s plate are finished in black for a perfect legibility, essential for a chronograph.
The front dial bears all the hallmarks of the Reverso Tribute line with its baton hour markers, Dauphine hands and chemin de fer minutes track. The blue-grey dial is complemented by a steel case which apparent simplicity is compromised by the two pushers on the side of the crown.
FULLY IN-HOUSE CHRONOGRAPH
Entirely designed, produced and assembled within the Manufacture, the new Calibre 860 is a fully integrated hand-wound chronograph movement. Incorporating the latest Manufacture innovations, it represents a true testimony of the expertise of La Grande Maison’s watchmakers.
DESIGNED FOR REVERSO
Evoking the exclusive world of polo, the Reverso Tribute Chronograph is equipped with a matching strap designed by Casa Fagliano, creating a unified aesthetic and strong sense of style that underlines the timeless modernity of the Reverso design.
A SERIES OF EXCEPTIONAL TIMEPIECES
The Reverso Tribute Chronograph reinvents the ground-breaking Reverso Chronographe of 1996. The earlier piece was one of six special Reverso developed in the space of a single decade. Starting in 1991, they were landmarks in the revival of mechanical watchmaking after the quartz crisis.
