The Alliance of the Watchmen & Leathermen 守护者&皮革族的联盟


When two supreme artistry join efforts to boost the elegance of a watch, it’s also the time to celebrate the exclusive nature of this collaboration – a limited edition of 100 pieces of the Reverso Tribute Duoface watch by Jaeger-LeCoultre. Partnering with Argentina’s greatest bootmakers, the warm-toned pink gold case matches with the two-tone cordovan leather strap specially designed and hand-crafted with its own unique patina and finishes making it a one-off. A family business running since 1892, Casa Fagliano works a soft and supple leather known for its great strength, following techniques handed down by long tradition.


This Art Deco design reflects its 1931 inspiration and will be sold exclusively in Jaeger-LeCoultre boutiques. Driven by the Duoface concept, this watch offers two contrasting dials – both equally refined and each displaying a different time zone. Echoing its hand-applied hour markers – the Dauphine hands – on its slate grey sunray dial, it also features a small seconds in a round minute track softening the pure geometrical linearity of the watch. The words “Limited Edition – One of 100” engraved on its back emphasise the exclusive nature of this watch and its refinement will not escape those who appreciate craftsmanship at its authentic and original best. The pursuit of perfection by the Grande Maison and the renowned bootmakers is truly an inspiration to all.
