The work on of troubled Dutch Post-Impressionist returns to Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso wristwatch with the second Vincent van Gogh limited edition. Equipped with a rolling shutter that slides open to reveal the miniature painting on the dial, the Reverso à Eclipse is the perfect canvas for van Gogh’s work.
While the first van Gogh Reverso depicted one of the famous Sunflowers paintings, the new model features a self-portrait. Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait as a Painter, completed in 1888, is reproduced in hand-painted miniature enamel, a technique often used to decorate the Reverso. Jaeger-LeCoultre is one of the few brands with an in-house team of miniature enamellers.
The case of the watch is platinum, with a slim roller located at one o’clock to open and close the shutters. Inside is the hand-wound calibre 849, a round movement most frequently found inside the Master Ultra-Thin.
Only four will be produced and sold only at Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Amsterdam boutique. The price is €101,000 excluding taxes.Back to top.
