Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre, a partner of Batman’s Dark Knight trilogy, pays tribute to the new film with a special edition Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute to 1931 steelwatch, engraved and lacquered with the legendary Bat-Shield. In the film, the character of Bruce Wayne, philanthropist and billionaire industrialist, wears the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Grande Date.
“The Reverso series has a special history. In 1931, a technically advanced watch was developed for polo players with a dial that could flip, protecting it from damage while also offering a personalized engraved case-back. Reverso thus became a cult object that every owner could make unique by personalizing it with an engraving. Protected by patent, the Reverso has evolved over the past eighty years with new faces, sizes and complications. Today, wearing one is an entry to an exclusive world in terms of watch-making history and aesthetic refinement.”
No word on pricing or how many pieces will be available. However, it does hint to the fact that they should be in Jaeger-LeCoultre brand boutiques in Los Angeles, London, Geneva, and Hong Kong.
