Introducing The New Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Chronograph Watches

Reverso returns to its sporty roots with a chronograph and retrograde minutes.


Jaeger-LeCoultre’s iconic Reverso watch has made a comeback in 2023 with a new sports version – the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Chronograph. The watch boasts a chronograph, retrograde minutes, and a second-time display. It comes in two versions: 18k pink gold and steel. The 49.4mm x 11.14mm cases have a polished finish with the classic gadroons at either end, reflecting their Art Deco roots.

The tranquil sunray-brushed finish of the dials contrasts elegantly with the applied baton markers on the chemin de fer minutes track that are indicated by elegant Dauphine hands.

The reverse dial reveals the chronograph mechanism, featuring a large chronograph seconds display on a central ring and a 30-minute totalizer on an arc at 6 o’clock. The chronograph’s 30-minute counter is retrograde, and its blued hand jumps back to zero in less than 1/8th of a second. The watch’s in-house movement, calibre 860, offers a power reserve of 52 hours and is just 12mm thick. The movement bridges are adorned with Côtes de Genève decoration.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Chronograph comes with two straps, a canvas-and-calfskin strap and an all-leather strap, both made by the prestigious Argentinian polo bootmaker Casa Fagliano. The price is yet to be confirmed.
