Monoface Small Seconds
Monoface Small Seconds
In line with the colored dials that were emblematic of the Reverso collection in its early days, the Reverso Tribute Small Seconds lets black play the leading role. A tribute to the avant-garde spirit of our Maison which, in the 1930s, was one of the only Manufactures to offer coloured dials at a time when white and silver dials were still the norm. On the black sunray dial, which changes under the play of light, every detail takes on relief and depth. This pink gold version with its ultra-thin case (7.56 mm) and customisable reverse comes with two interchangeable straps. A nod to the polo field atmosphere that embodies the Reverso spirit, the leather strap and the bi-material strap (leather/canvas) in the Casa Fagliano design invite the wearer to move from a casual to a more dressed-up style.

THE MODERN ICON
The Reverso Tribute Small Seconds continues the story of colour that began in the early years of Reverso, when this icon was adopted beyond the polo fields. More contemporary than ever, the sunbrushed dial’s variations create a contrast with the clean symmetry of the Reverso design.
THE OLD TIME CLASSIC
The Reverso Tribute Small Seconds revives the codes of the 1931 Reverso and the black dials of the original timepiece of that era. Offering exceptional legibility, the sunray-brushed black dial creates a strong contrast to the polished pink gold metal case and applied indexes, enhancing the Art Deco spirit of this iconic timepiece.
THE SOPHISTICATED CASE
This timepiece achieves a rectangular refinement thanks to its 7,56 mm thickness case. Highly ergonomic, the complex slide-and-swivel mechanism - composed of more than 50 components -, follows the natural curve of the wrist. A 90 years old mechanism crafted to perfection, even the inside of the cradle is sublimated with a sunray engraving.
DESIGNED FOR REVERSO
Evoking the exclusive world of polo, the Reverso Tribute Small Seconds is paired with two matching straps designed by Casa Fagliano, creating a unified aesthetic and strong sense of style that underlines the timeless modernity of the Reverso design.
TICKING EVERY SECOND
With an elegant simplicity, hours and minutes are indicated by dauphine hands while on the lower half of the dial, the circular track of the small seconds display – pure expression of its mechanical movement - provides a counterpoint to the linear geometry of the dial and case.
A RECTANGULAR HEART
The manually wound calibre 822 that drives the Reverso Tribute Small Seconds is the epitome of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s philosophy. Entirely designed, produced and assembled in-house, calibre 822 is an uncommon rectangular movement allowing it to fit in the Reverso case.
BORN OUT OF A CHALLENGE
Created in 1931, Reverso has remained eternally modern. In 1991, coincided with the rebirth of mechanical watchmaking, the Reverso embraced its potential. It became the vehicle through which the Manufacture would redevelop its expertise in high complications despite the added challenge that rectangular movements dictate an entirely different architecture from that of the round movements that had traditionally been used for complications.
