Those who understand watches must be no stranger to these words: ultra-thin, diving, three questions and tourbillon. We have selected three new watches from Jaeger-LeCoultre 2011 to help you interpret the essence of men’s watches.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin
Celebrating the 80th anniversary of the Reverso collection, the new Grande Reverso Ultra Thin has launched a revolution in minimalism. The extremely small thickness of Jaeger-LeCoultre 822 movement (only 2.94 mm) makes this Reverso watch unprecedentedly thin. Although its large case brings a thick texture to the wrist, it is still light and comfortable to wear due to its curved lines.
Jaeger-LeCoultre-Grande-Reverso-Ultra-Thin-Large Slim Watch
A simple dial with grid-like carvings, quaint and elegant Arabic numerals, and slender blue hands bring this ultra-thin watch to all the classic aesthetic elements of the Reverso collection. This new model showcases the essence of the personality of the Reverso series. It is the perfect combination of tradition and nobility, elegance and fashion.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea
The Memovox Deep Sea watch is the first diving watch manufactured by Jaeger-LeCoultre, and it is one of the few watches with an epoch-making significance. Jaeger-LeCoultre launched a faithful replica series of two outstanding classic dive watches in 2008, Memovox Tribute to Polaris 1965 and Memovox Tribute to Polaris 1968. Now, Jaeger-LeCoultre, a top watchmaker from Vallée de Joux, has gone back in time and has traced its origins, launching a replica of the 1959 Memovox Deep Sea watch, named Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox-Tribute-to-Deep-Sea Remastered Diving Watch
The original watch is unique in its introduction of two collections, one designed for athletes from the old continent and the other for divers from the new world. To pay tribute to its glorious watchmaking history, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents two replicas of the 1959 Memovox Deep Sea watch this year, and they are issued in limited editions, giving collectors and watches specializing in excellence in watchmaking.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Répétition Minutes à Rideau Minute Repeater
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Répétition Minutes à Rideau watch, with its iconic design, eye-catching new interpretations and unparalleled creative ingenuity, is perfectly integrated with top-level watchmaking technology. On the 80th anniversary of the legendary Reverso watch, Jaeger-LeCoultre gave this series a new look, introducing the Reverso Répétition Minute à Rideau Minute Repeater. The cleverly designed curtain covers the dial, and the timekeeping mechanism can be activated as soon as it is slid.
Only when the curtain turns to one side, the Reverso Répétition Minutes à Rideau Minute Repeater is able to show its inner meaning. This exquisite display design is the pinnacle of unprecedented fine watchmaking culture and technology: the hour and minute hands glide past the minute repeater movement. The minute repeater movement is recognized as a state-of-the-art fine watchmaking technology, reflecting the highest standards of modern mechanical watchmaking.
Pressing the curtain to start the precise mechanical device, like magic, uses a highly complex mechanism composed of 270 parts such as gear teeth, gears and a barrel to drive the minute repeater device to produce a moving melody. This complex mechanism independently constitutes complex functions, making the Reverso Répétition Minutes à Rideau watch a masterpiece of watchmaking craftsmanship, which goes hand in hand with all kinds of traditional complex functions.
