In celebration of the Lunar New Year and this being the Year of the Tiger, Jaeger-LeCoultre unveils a beautiful enamel tiger Reverso. The Reverso is definitely one of the most iconic watches to be produced from Jaeger-LeCoultre and worldwide and their enamel creations has always exceeded expectations and has always been made with incredible precision and quality and this one is no different.

As the Year of the Tiger begins in 2022, more and more watch manufacturers will definitely start unveiling pieces in celebration of this. Which could either be great news or bad depending on how well it has been executed, however Jaeger-LeCoultre has definitely created an incredible piece that I am sure a lot of fans would love. It comes made out of a pink gold case and once the central case is flipped it features the tiger centrepiece. Hand-crafted from Jaeger-LeCoultre’s very own engravers and enamellers taking over 75 hours to create just one of these dials. In a technique called modelled engraving which uses different sized chisels to sculpt the metal step by step, and has to be done with extreme precision to not damage the surrounding enamel. The dial itself is made out of black opaque Grand Feu enamel which from the pictures just looks incredible and contrasts beautifully with the case and the engraved tiger.

The case is a classic 27.4mm by 45.5mm in pink gold, the front dial is also made out of pure black Grand Feu enamel, and the same signature hour and minute hand and hour indices come in pink gold as well to match the case. The outer minute track and 12 o’clock Jaeger-LeCoultre is printed onto the dial and completes the front dial of the watch. This watch is powered by the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 822A/2 manual movement and features a power reserve of 45 hours. The watch comes paired with a glossy piano black alligator leather strap which pairs perfectly well with the case and dial. The only one downside is that the watch is only water-resistant to 30m but that is expected given the detail and work done for the engraved dial.

One surprising thing about this watch that it is not strictly limited, instead it is exclusively made to order and it also gives the buyer the opportunity to customise the standard case back motif with enamel colour options. You can purchase this watch through authorised dealers and is priced at €90,000 as of now. Hopefully more watch manufacturers come out with equally as impressive pieces as this Reverso this year.
