A BOND MADE TO LAST
This limited series of the Reverso Tribute Duoface on a cordovan leather strap gives two brands the chance to excel in their respective fields.
What do Prince Charles, the actor Tommy Lee Jones and the great polo player Adolfo Cambioso have in common? They all wear Casa Fagliano footwear. The bond with the equestrian team sport and the reputation for soft and strong leather has meant the brand has been excelling itself since its foundation in 1892. No wonder Jaeger-LeCoultre launched a partnership with the Argentinian company in 2011 that continues in early 2018 with a limited edition Reverso Tribute Duoface Casa Fagliano (100 available) on a two-tone cordovan leather strap. The light and dark brown hues on the handmade strap perfectly match the iconic Art Deco-style rose gold case (49.4 x 29.9mm). The hem and overstitching bring to mind the details on the professional polo players’ boots made by Casa Fagliano.
The recto dial on the Reverso Tribute Duoface Casa Fagliano has a satin-finished slate sunburst finish bearing the hours, minutes and small seconds. The verso side has a guilloché silver Clous de Paris pattern, enables you to set a second time zone and has a 24 hour day/night indicator. The time features are all tracked by dauphine-shape hands fuelled by a manual-wind 852/2 mechanical movement with a 42-hour power reserve.
The Reverso Tribute Duoface Casa Fagliano is only available in Jaeger-LeCoultre stores.
