Saman­tha Lim stays in tune with the watch­mak­ing in­dus­try’s tempo, tak­ing note of Jaeger-lecoul­tre’s lat­est time­piece, among oth­ers

When the Sul­tan of Brunei or­ders over 100 pairs of polo boots from onene leather goods maker,er, you can bet your bot­tom dol­lar on thee lat­ter be­ing a true vir­tu­oso. Com­prisedd of a fa­ther and two sons, Rodolfo, Ed­uardo and Hec­tor, Casa Fagliano caught the eye of Jaeger-lecoul­tre al­most­most a decade ago, which tran­spired in bothh par­ties’ first part­ner­ship in 2011. And 2018 sees yet an­other al­liance by way of the ex­tremely rare Rev­erso Tribute­bute Duo­face on a Casa Fagliano leather strap—rap— em­pha­sised via an en­grav­ing on the case­back­ase­back that reads ‘Lim­ited Edi­tion – One of 100’.00’. A hand­some match for the Rev­erso’s pink gold case, each two-tone strap is lit­er­ally one-of-a-kind. Mi­nor dis­crep­an­cies are proof that the Ar­gen­tinian trio cre­ated each and ev­ery strap by hand; a nov­elty in an age of ma­chine-made goods. A trade­mark of the Rev­erso Trib­ute Duo­face are the re­versible di­als de­signed to ac­com­mo­date dif­fer­ent time zones—slide out, flip over, and slide the case back in to re­veal an­other watch face. The Rev­erso cre­ated to­gether with Casa Fagliano gives the wearer the choice of a slate-grey, satin-brushed sun­ray dial or a sil­vered dial em­bossed with Clous de Paris guil­loche.
