- AN IMPORTANT AND RARE LIMITED EDITION WHITE GOLD RECTANGULAR REVERSIBLE SKELETONIZED MULTI-AXIS SPHERICAL TOURBILLON WRISTWATCH WITH 50-HOUR POWER RESERVE AND 24 HOURS INDICATION
CIRCA 2011 REVERSO GYROTOURBILLON 2
- dimensions 36 x 55 mm
Housed within a massive version of Jaeger's most iconic case design, the Reverso GyroTourbillon 2 is a combination of classic aesthetics with pure contemporary watchmaking. The large dimensions of the case, 36 mm x 55 mm x 16 mm deep allowed Jaeger LeCoultre to fit the world¿s first dual-axis tourbillon with cylindrical balance spring within a wristwatch. The fast-beat dual-axis tourbillon, comprised of 90 parts alone, features an outer cage traveling at 60 seconds per revolution and an inner cage traveling at 18.75 seconds per revolution. The result is quite mesmerizing, designed within an open-work layout the two cages rotate in a spherical motion viewable with the case positioned in either location. Fitted with a locking mechanism to prevent accidental movement, the case reverse has a sapphire crystal revealing the 58 jewel movement with 371 parts and 50 hour power reserve indicator.
Made in a limited edition of only 20 pieces in white gold with grey dial accents, this combination was only available when purchased as part of a special set of three wristwatches, the Gyrotourbillon 1, 2 and ¿A Triptyque¿ models.
