Jaeger-LeCoultre Vincent Van Gogh: 2nd Edition

There is no question that haute horology is one of the truest art forms that there is and you’d be seldom to find an artisan better than Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre. Taking this on board, it has once again used one of its more reputable models, Reverso, as a base to pay an homage to  one of the greats – Vincent Van Gogh. This is actually the second special edition Reverso created as an homage to the Dutch master, and this time features one of his famous self-portraits. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso, you may recall, is the famous reversible watch with two faces, thanks to a swiveling case that it first introduced in 1931 for polo-playing British army officers.

Known for its iconic swivelling case, the reversible timepiece sports a miniature enamel reproduction of Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait as a Painter, that can be viewed via the watch’s shutter mechanism. With only four examples made, one can be seen at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
