Another Reverso Tribute with a blue dial, this time the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Moon in stainless steel!
The Reverso Tribute Moon is another Duoface but with the blue dial on the back…
Compared with the Reverso Tribute Duoface we looked at last week, the Reverso Tribute Moon is a more “low key” watch. Not in beauty but in eye catching. While the blue front dial of the Duoface have an instant “wow” effect, the front dial of the Moon is more for the connoisseur.
Less in your face, but with more interesting details. Heated blue hands and applied index. The structure of the silver grey dial have a grainy surface which makes it absorb the light in a very interesting way.
The pointer date around the Moon Phase window at six has a good balance and space. Often I am less attracted to pointer dates due to they often look squeezed into the dial, which it’s not on this dial.
The Moon Phase window I find to be on the smaller side, but that’s a common problem when combined with pointer date around the Moon Phase window… On the smaller side, but not too small.
On the back we find the blue dial, darker, more classic than the shimmering blue of the Duoface.
The layout on the back of the Moon is very similar to the Duoface, second time zone adjusted with a small pusher on the side of the case and a day and night indicator.
Here, the day and night indicator is rotating disk with a sun and a moon. Much more visible and illustrative than the 24 hour hand on the Duoface.
The Clous de Paris Guilloché and the sunray engraving on the inside of the case back you recognise…
Hard to choose a favourite of the two as they are very different in style. I rather see them as complimenting each other… One for the office, one for the evening out… But which is which..? I can not tell!
Big thank you to my local Jaeger-LeCoultre AD Nymans Ur for letting me handle this beauty!
