The launch of the Reverso Gyrotourbillon 2 was timed to celebrate the 85th anniversary of the Reverso from Jaeger-Le Coultre. At its heart is the Calibre 179, and evolution of the Caliber 177 found in the Gyrotourbillon 1. It debuted a cylindrical balance spring and double axis spherical tourbillon with outer carriage travelling at 60 seconds per revolution and constructed of lightweight aluminum and titanium and comprising of no less than 90 individual parts and weighing a third of a gram.
The case is crafted in the large iconic reversible case design so associated with Jaeger-Le Coultre and constructed of platinum with locking mechanism on the case flank. The result is astonishing and imposing, with the open-work layout allows the carriage movement to be admired from any angle thought the semi skeletonized dial. The hand wound movement is visible throughout, with the power revere indicator (calibrated to 50hrs) on the reverse.
Made in a limited series of 75 examples, each one is individually numbered on the case back (the current lot being 21 of 75) and cased in platinum. The watch is presented in exceptional condition and is accompanied by its full set of accessories including inner and outer box and all product literature and booklets.
