Jaeger-LeCoultre produced a special 26-piece Grande Reverso Ultra Thin 1931 London Flagship Edition to celebrate the recent opening of their new 13 Old Bond Street boutique in London.
Animated by caliber 822, the iconic timepiece is presented in a stainless steel Ultra Thin 1931 Grande Reverso case (46.8 mm by 27.4 mm). The dial features silvered indexes and hands and is distinguished by its deep “British Racing” green hue.
Appropriately, the caseback is engraved with a drawing of the Palace of Westminster, featuring the famous clocktower – Big Ben. The longtime design director of Jaeger-LeCoultre, Janek Deleskiewicz, drew the image of Big Ben for the caseback. According to Deleskiewicz, “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.”
This watch will retail for approximately $10,600 and will be available for sale exclusively at the Old Bond Street boutique.
