$8,250

This Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Small Second wristwatch (ref. 3978480) features the JLC Caliber 822/2 mechanical manual-winding movement with a 45-hour power reserve when fully wound; blue, sunray-brushed dial with appliqued hour-markers; solid case back for a personalized engraving; and 45.6 x 27.4mm, stainless steel case on a dark blue Fagliano Collection calfskin strap, designed by the celebrated Argentinian bootmaker.

A Rare Dial:

The dial of the Reverso Tribute Small Second watch is inspired by the first Reverso model, created in 1931. The minute track follows the perimeter of the dial in a subtle shade of blue, which is the result of the translucent lacquer staining on the sunray-brushed satin base. The purity of this remarkable dial, upon which the small second dial appears to float, is embellished with polished and rhodium-plated appliqué hour markers.
