A tribute to Britain

Jaeger-LeCoultre recently unveiled its latest tribute to Britain, the Grande Reverso Ultra Thin 1931 Special London Flagship edition.

The deep green colour is dear to many at Jaeger-LeCoultre, including Design and Artistic Director, Janek Deleskiewicz, whose time as a young man in England in the 1960s and 1970s form some of his greatest memories of freedom and during which he collected many eclectic objects from around the country, and also became interested in beautiful cars at that time. What’s more is that since those days, Deleskiewicz has been totally in love with the surprise and elegance of British tailoring- many of his suits have this deep green silk lining.

The second side on the solid case back features an exquisite engraving of the Palace of Westminster featuring the famous clock tower endearingly called Big Ben, drawn by Deleskiewicz himself. “There is perhaps no better symbol of democracy and commemoration place for great world leaders, and iconic architecture and chime than Big Ben”, continues Belmont.  The charm of Big Ben has captured the Manufacture’s imagination for many years. In fact, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre a Grande Sonnerie- one of the most complicated watches in the world- chimes all the notes and the full melody of Big Ben.

The Grande Reverso Ultra Thin 1931 Special London Flagship Edition is available in a short series of 26 pieces exclusively at the Jaeger-LeCoultre London Flagship on 13 Old Bond Street, with deliveries starting this summer.

Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre

Since its founding in 1833, the Manufacture has been an inventive protagonist in the field of Haute Horlogerie. The keyless watch, silent regulators for repeater watches, the Calibre Jaeger-LeCoultre 101 weighing barely one gram, the iconic Reverso, as well as unprecedented concepts such as the Dual-Wing®, all contribute to the wealth of the Jaeger-LeCoultre heritage.
