The sec­ond se­ries of the Rev­erso à Eclipse watch is a trib­ute to Vin­cent van Gogh by Jaeger-LeCoul­tre and the Van Gogh Mu­seum in Am­s­ter­dam. It fea­tures an enam­elled minia­ture of Self-Por­trait As A Painter (1887-88) on the dial, one of Van Gogh’s most fa­mous paint­ings and part of the per­ma­nent col­lec­tion of the Mu­seum. The Rev­erso à Eclipse is a unique re­versible watch fea­tur­ing a plat­inum case equipped with the in-house Jaeger-LeCoul­tre cal­i­bre 849. A sim­ple ges­ture is enough to open the shut­ters of the watch ei­ther par­tially or fully (hence the “eclipse”) to re­veal a minia­ture enamel re­cre­ation of Van Gogh’s work. The first se­ries was pre­sented last year fea­tur­ing his iconic Sun­flow­ers. This unique mas­ter­piece in a plat­inum case, of which only four pieces will be made, can be ad­mired at the mu­seum.
