Traditionnelle Tourbillon China Limited Edition

Geneva, November 29th, 2021 – Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Vacheron Constantin presents a high complication limited-edition timepiece, exclusive to the China market.

A Gentleman of Jade

“A gentleman of jade” is a well-known phrase since ancient China to describe a man with noble character. The Chinese believe that a real gentleman is elegant and dignified just as the Jade, which gives inspiration to the creation of the first high complication wristwatch specially designed for the China market. Considered as a mirror of Chinese civilization, Jade has been a treasure of Chinese tradition for thousands of years. This gemstone has been a symbol of high morality throughout Chinese history.

“Imperial Green”

The color of green is described in Chinese poetry as gentle, soothing, and full of vigour and energy. Living in a green environment or adding touches of green to your surroundings can surprisingly bring sophistication, tranquillity and vitality to life.

The well-known Hongshan (Green) Jade Dragon from the Neolithic Period – the earliest known jade dragon carving in China – defines the imperial nature of Green jade carvings. In modern times, jadeite, a harder form of jade known by Chinese, is greatly appreciated for its gentle, translucent, luxurious, but not overstated color.

A jade’s quality is largely determined by the purity of its color. Imperial green, the color that Vacheron Constantin’s first high complication China Limited Edition wristwatch is dressed in, is known to represent the purest and most sophisticated shade of green jadeite, and has a sharp boldness while retaining being understated and warm.

Traditionnelle Tourbillon China Limited Edition

This Traditionnelle tourbillon watch features an elegant 41 mm-diameter case in 18K 5N pink gold which houses a self-winding movement developed by Vacheron Constantin.

In addition to the refinement of its openworked tourbillon carriage shaped like a Maltese cross, the emblem of the Manufacture and entirely hand chamfered and finished, Caliber 2160 is distinguished by its incredible slimness: this ultra-thin 188-part movement endowed with an approximately 80-hour power reserve measures just 5.65 mm thick. Its relatively sedate frequency (2.5 Hz), along with its 22K gold sandblasted peripheral oscillating weight, provide a chance to admire the steady beating of its mechanism and the exceptional level of traditional Côtes de Genève finishing visible through the sapphire crystal caseback.

The new Traditionnelle tourbillon China Limited Edition timepiece displays the hours and minutes with central hands, while the small seconds appear at 6 o’clock on the tourbillon, framed by an Imperial green-toned dial graced with gold hour-markers and bi-facetted Dauphine-type hands.

As an old Chinese saying goes, like the Jade, those who accomplish great things are modest about their capabilities. As the epitome of radiance, balanced proportions, and subtle details, the new Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon China Limited Edition honors and interprets a Gentleman of Jade.


Technical refinement meets aesthetic elegance in this model imbued with exquisite masculinity. It represents the epitome of radiance, balanced proportions, and subtle details. Faithful to the origins of Vacheron Constantin and dedicated to Chinese clients enamored of beautifully crafted watches that are both understated and distinguished. Issued in a 30-piece limited series exclusively for Mainland China, it asserts the style in the accordant shades of green: from the elegant Imperial green-toned sunburst finishing dial to the Mississippiensis alligator leather strap with 18K 5N pink gold buckle. Powered by the in-house self-winding Calibre 2160/1, this Traditionnelle tourbillon watch displays the hours and minutes with central hands, while the small seconds appear at 6 o’clock on the tourbillon.

Jaeger-Lecoultre presents the Reverso Tribute minute repeater

Jaeger Lecoultre presents the Reverso tribute minute repeater

Ninety years after the birth of the Reverso, and 150 years after creating its first minute repeater, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents the Reverso Tribute Minute Repeater. Offered in a limited edition of 10 pieces, this exquisite new timepiece unites two of the key themes that have defined La Grande Maison for much of its history: an exceptional expertise in chiming watches and the timeless story of the Reverso.

With its distinctive Art Deco lines and swivelling case, the Reverso is one of the world’s most recognisable wristwatches. Its story embodies Jaeger-LeCoultre’s eternal pursuit of beauty and aesthetic refinement, expanding the Reverso’s stylistic realm by harnessing the full potential of its unique design. Allied to this is the Manufacture’s endlessly inventive quest for technical advancement – from the revolutionary idea of a case that could be flipped over, and the ingenious mechanism that made it possible, to the development of complications specific to the Reverso.


A distinguished legacy in chiming watches

In the 1990s, amid the rebirth of mechanical watchmaking that followed the quartz crisis, the Reverso – with its distinctive rectangular case – became the vehicle through which the Manufacture would redevelop its expertise in high complications. Having mastered the added challenge that rectangular movements dictate an entirely different architecture from that of traditional round movements – a particularly demanding challenge for chiming mechanisms – Jaeger-LeCoultre presented the Reverso Répétition Minutes in 1994. It was the first time the Maison had miniaturised a minute repeater for a wristwatch and was the world’s first rectangular minute repeater movement.

In fact, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s mastery of chiming mechanisms dates back to the very foundation of the Manufacture in 1833, and its deep expertise is today confirmed by an archive of more than 200 chiming calibres. Since that first Reverso minute repeater of the 1990s, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s engineers and designers have redefined the benchmark for acoustic quality, harnessing new technology in service of this noble tradition.

A new expression for the Minute Repeater

Embodying technical advances such as Jaeger-LeCoultre’s patented trebuchet hammers, silent regulator and a new generation of gongs, the Reverso Tribute Minute Repeater is powered by a revised version of Calibre 944 – a movement entirely conceived, designed and produced within the Manufacture. The new timepiece is distinguished by dials on both the front and reverse sides, bringing a fresh visual expression to the timeless Reverso design, as well as to the minute repeater mechanism itself. While the dials both display the same time, they are very different in character – one exuberant, the other more sober. Both are a testament to the beauty of fine movement decoration and the exceptional level of craftsmanship that resides within the Manufacture.

The front dial is entirely skeletonised, revealing the full complexity of the minute repeater mechanism and presenting a mesmerising display of moving parts when the minute repeater is activated. Beneath a large bow-shaped bridge that sweeps from 11 o’clock to 7 o’clock, the components appear almost to be floating in three dimensions, the sense of visual depth and transparency enhanced by faceted indexes that are cantilevered from the chemin de fer minutes track. With a gleaming golden finish, the bridge, hour markers, gongs and several other components perfectly match the colour of the rose-gold watch case.

While the exuberance of the front dial contrasts with the rectilinear geometry of the Reverso case, the relative sobriety of the reverse dial echoes and amplifies those straight lines. Vertical Côtes de Genève stripes extend over the entire height of the main plate, which also serves as the dial. Showcasing the timekeeping mechanism, with subtle colour accents provided by blued screws and golden hands and hour markers, the cool silver tone of the metal provides an elegant counterpoint to the warm rose gold of the case.

Set into the side of the watch case, the slider that activates the chimes has been specially designed for the new Reverso Tribute Minute Repeater to be as slim as possible, without sacrificing ergonomics. Visually complementing the Art Deco lines of the case, the effect is one of great refinement.

In showcasing both technical complexity and the aesthetic crafts, the Reverso Tribute Minute Repeater underlines the eternal modernity of the Reverso design, marrying the technical prowess of the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre to its eternal quest for new forms of visual expression.

TAG HEUER Teams Up with pop culture Icon Super Mario


To celebrate the beginning of a long-term collaboration between the two brands, TAG Heuer and Nintendo have created a limited-edition smartwatch featuring Nintendo’s most famous
character: the energetic Mushroom Kingdom hero, Mario, who takes over the TAG Heuer Connected.

La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, July 13th 2021: When TAG Heuer and Super Mario join forces, you can bet the result is a timepiece that adds new excitement to both the watchmaking and gaming worlds and which fans of the two brands will be desperate to get their hands on! Super Mario meets the TAG Heuer Connected. The result? A watch that stands out and brings new creativity and daring style to the avant-garde watchmaker’s collections. The intrepid, iconic hero comes to life in this luxury smartwatch that combines sport, technology and elegance in one dynamic package. In this collaboration, the TAG Heuer Connected is offering wearers a fun new way to get more active, feeling the thrill of achieving goals throughout the day.


Generations of gamers have grown up with Super Mario, with more than 370 million Super Mario games sold worldwide since 1985. Since the first Super Mario Bros. game launched in Japan in 1985, Super Mario – with his red cap and blue overalls – has become recognised the world over.

“The inspiration for this collaboration came from our desire to gamify and bring excitement to our new wellness application and Super Mario instantly came to our minds,” says Frédéric Arnault, CEO of TAG Heuer. “And it’s not just his international and intergenerational appeal that clinched it. Mario is the ultimate super-active character whose perseverance and tenacity get him out of every situation. The new hero watchface gives life to this iconic character and encourage users to team up with Mario to get out there and be more active? The TAG Heuer Connected is the perfect companion for a connected life and every active person’s best friend. With this Super Mario limited-edition smartwatch, they can add a bit of fun and originality to their activities and wellness.”

At the heart of this collaboration, the TAG Heuer Connected watch is a unique combination of the refinement and elegance of a chronograph-inspired timepiece crafted in the purest watchmaking
tradition, with a state-of-the-art, custom-designed digital experience geared towards performance.

It offers customers a striking and versatile wristwatch to enhance their individual lifestyle, from daily connected services to immersive sports experiences.

Feel the thrill of progress with the TAG Heuer

Connected and Super Mario interactive watchface Thanks to the TAG Heuer Connected, action is at the heart of this TAG Heuer x Super Mario collaboration. This brand-new digital creation, combining luxury and sport with fun features along the way, encourages the wearer to get out and about and step up their physical activity with Mario, to be rewarded by the
pleasure and satisfaction of marking their progress.

Mario himself is always on the move, whether he’s running and jumping, or playing sports like golf and tennis. His upbeat and active personality will encourage wearers of this smartwatch to enjoy moving too. With its watchface, which becomes livelier and more animated the more the wearer is active, this edition of the TAG Heuer Connected changes as its user makes progress, for a fun and motivating way of keeping active throughout the day.

The animations are based on the gamification rewards system: Mario greets you with a welcoming salute in the morning and as the day progresses and you rack up your step count, you unlock rewards at each stage of your daily target – 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% – a different animation plays out on the dial. These take the form of Super Mario’s famous objects: at 3 o’clock the Super Mushroom that makes Mario grow, at 6 o’clock the Pipe that allows him to travel fast and at 9 o’clock the Super Star that makes him invincible lights up! And when you reach 100% of your daily step count target, Mario climbs the Goal Pole, another iconic feature of the video game.

The idea is inspired by the famous “easter egg” concept that all gamers know very well, which consists of hiding features and surprises as a bonus in video games.

The interactive watchface will be pre-installed on the TAG Heuer Connected Super Mario Limited Edition, but TAG Heuer will also make it available on other editions of TAG Heuer Connected at a
later stage.

The TAG Heuer Connected x Super Mario Limited Edition

The TAG Heuer Connected Super Mario limited-edition comes packed with exclusives, both in the digital experience it delivers, and on the watch itself. The interface has been completely redesigned in the Super Mario colours. For this limited edition, TAG Heuer’s famous Connected watchfaces have been reinterpreted with Super Mario special versions, four dials revisited to include special details associated with Super Mario.

The Timekeeping watchface was reskinned using the retro elements from the 1985 version of Super Mario Bros. with Mario, all in pixels. Also, two versions of the Heuer 02 watchface were created
exclusively for this edition: a fun rendition using Super Mario’s iconic red and blue colours, and a more classic one with subtle touches of Super Mario’s red cap. Lastly, the Orbital watchface had its neural network replaced by Super Mario’s iconic elements rotating in a beautiful and mesmerizing movement.

On the exterior as well, the TAG Heuer Connected Limited Edition was designed with exclusive and subtle references that will delight Super Mario fans. The bezel graduation, push buttons and crown logo were filled with Super Mario’s famous red cap’s lacquered colour, making the watch instantly stand out from the core collection. The bezel features three iconic symbols at the three, six and nine o’clock positions, in a nod to the Super Mario objects included in the dial animations that the user can unlock and discover only when achieving goals throughout the day.

The new-look steel case also comes with two novel interchangeable straps, both featuring the signature Super Mario red colour: an elegant black leather on red rubber and a sporty alternative in matching red perforated rubber. The M symbol of Mario is engraved on the strap buckles and on the crown. Lastly, the screw-down case-back bears the special inscription “TAG Heuer x Super Mario Limited Edition”.

The TAG Heuer Connected x Super Mario Limited Edition is presented in a packaging designed exclusively for this collaboration. It also comes with a travel case in Super Mario red. This edition limited to 2,000 watches will be available only in selected TAG Heuer boutiques and at www.tagheuer.com in
some regions, from 15th July 2021.

TAG Heuer Connected Sport and Wellness

With the third generation of TAG Heuer Connected, the brand has consolidated its pole position in the luxury smartwatch category. Manufactured in the finest watchmaking tradition, it features a unique combination of elegance – through the use of highest-quality materials and sophisticated finishes – and cutting-edge digital know-how to offer personalised, performance-oriented support.

With its remarkably versatile design, the TAG Heuer Connected accompanies everyone’s individual lifestyle, offering a host of daily connected services through Wear OS from Google* and unrivalled sporting experiences through the TAG Heuer Sport app. Developed in-house, the TAG Heuer Sport app provides detailed feedback on the wearer’s performance in a variety of activities including running, swimming, cycling, walking and physical fitness. Meanwhile, golfers will love the new game strategy enhancement functionality recently added to the TAG Heuer Golf app. Lastly, the new Wellness function enables users to stay in shape and provides feedback on changes in their biometric data during their daily exercise.

Jaeger-LeCoultre unfolds infinity in four chapters with the Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185

Jaeger-LeCoultre unfolds infinity in four chapters with the Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185

La Grande Maison celebrates an icon, the Reverso, by releasing the most complicated timepiece ever presented in this emblematic collection. The Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 is the result of over six years of development, combining key areas of savoir-faire at Jaeger-LeCoultre with innovative new astronomical indications.

It is the world’s first wristwatch with four functioning display faces. By incorporating three displays of lunar information on the interior face of the iconic Reverso cradle (the synodic cycle, the draconic cycle and the anomalistic cycle), the Hybris Mechanica Quadriptyque can predict the next global incidence of astronomical events such as supermoons and eclipses — the world’s first wristwatch to provide such a deep reading of the cosmos.

Key Points of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 (Quadriptyque)

  • The world’s first watch with four faces; the most complicated Reverso timepiece ever made
  • A total of 11 complications, including perpetual calendar, minute repeater, indications of the synodic, draconic and anomalistic cycles (never before presented together in a wristwatch), requiring 12 patents
  • Combines Jaeger-LeCoultre’s uncontested mastery of chiming watches, precision mechanisms, astronomical complications and ultra-compact watchmaking
  • User-friendly design and construction; the most complicated Reverso is also one of the easiest to wear

Geneva, April 7th, 2021 — With 188 years of relentless innovation and savoir-faire behind it, Jaeger-LeCoultre continually sets new boundaries in the domain of fine mechanical watchmaking. Its Hybris Mechanica series of ground-breaking, ultra-complicated timepieces has established a constellation of stars shining with unparalleled brilliance in the horological heavens. In 2021, the latest addition to this celestial assemblage is a grand oeuvre six years in the making — the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 Quadriptyque, the first watch in the world with four faces of timekeeping indications.

Since the advent of personal timepieces, the quest to build increasingly complicated watches is constrained by the volume of space available to the watchmaker. Having a multitude of complications in a watch is pointless unless they can be legibly and comprehensibly displayed, and the watch can be reasonably worn. Liberated by the unique design of the iconic Reverso, Jaeger-LeCoultre has created a world’s first: a double-faced case continuously driven by the in-house Calibre 185, and a double-faced cradle with indications synced and updated by the primary movement every day at the stroke of midnight by an ingenious mechanical system proprietary to Jaeger-LeCoultre.

If executed through conventional mechanical means, the 11 complications of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 Quadriptyque would result in a timepiece far more suited for a desk than a wrist. Thanks to nearly two centuries of expertise and a thoroughly modern approach to innovation, Jaeger-LeCoultre tells the story of cosmic and terrestrial time within the confines of a 51mm by 31mm by 15mm case, a story told in four chapters of horological virtuosity.

Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185


The history of Jaeger-LeCoultre is rooted in the pursuit and attainment of precision. One of the earliest inventions of founder Antoine LeCoultre was the millionometer, the first instrument able to measure the micron. Today, Jaeger-LeCoultre is an undisputed pioneer and leader in creating exceptional executions of the tourbillon, a mechanism designed to enhance the chronometric performance of a timepiece. The Reverso Hybris Mechanica Gyrotourbillon 2 (2008) stunned audiences and won chronometry awards with its multi-axial revolving balance, and the Reverso Hybris Mechanica à Triptyque (2006) remains unique in its use of a tourbillon with a high-precision ellipse isometer escapement.

Naturally, the tourbillon is one of the main protagonists of the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 (Quadriptyque). Occupying the 7 o’clock position on the recto face of the case, a flying tourbillon (thus called because the absence of an upper bridge allows it to appear as if it is floating) makes one rotation a minute, continuously varying the position of the balance in order to achieve a single corrected average time measurement.

Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185

The balance is the heart of any watch movement, and it is also the key to our measurement of time. As it beats in regular cadences of 4Hz (28,800vph), every eight beats mark the passing of one second. The seconds accumulate into minutes, into hours, days, weeks, months and years. The recto face of the Quadriptyque case, illustrating the uppermost abilities of mechanical horology, shows the indications of a perpetual calendar, a centuries-old mechanism that always displays the correct date despite the irregular number of days each month. It also takes leap years into account, displaying a 29th day in the month of February every four years. Highlighting the precision of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 185 construction, the perpetual calendar indications are instantaneous, changing at the stroke of midnight. In addition, the complexities of the Calibre 185 construction required the date to be displayed at the 5 o’clock position on the dial. At Jaeger-LeCoultre, only the perfect legibility of a grande date was considered acceptable for a watch of such prestige, which necessitated the creation of a new system of date display discs in order to accommodate the dimensions of the flying tourbillon at 7 o’clock. The opening chapter of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 (Quadriptyque) is nothing less than a powerful statement of how la Grande Maison has comprehensively mastered the expression of civil time.


There are extremely few watchmaking manufactures that possess in-house expertise in sonnerie wristwatches. There are even fewer that have been making them since 1870, accumulating one and a half centuries of experience and savoir-faire. There exists only one watchmaking manufacture that has over 200 chiming watch calibres in its historical and modern inventory — La Grande Maison du Sentier. The verso face of the Quadriptyque case is a virtuoso tour de force of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s patrimony as a master and innovator of chiming watches.

Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185

With the slide of a lever located just above the crown, the Quadriptyque unleashes its melody. First, a series of low notes, correlating to the number of hours. Second, an alternating couplet of high and low notes, corresponding to the quarter-hours. And concluding the melody, a succession of high notes, indicating the number of minutes to be added to the elapsed quarters. In concert, the hours-quarters-minutes chime plays the current time in musical code. The striking works of the Reverso Quadriptyque are completely exposed alongside a secondary time display, indicating the same time as the recto dial, but in a jumping-hours and peripheral-minutes format. As the Quadriptyque strikes the time, setting a symphony of springs, cams, hammers and gongs into motion, their acoustic report confirms the visual display of the secondary dial.

Visible through apertures on the movement plate hand-decorated with the guillochage motif known as clous de Paris are elements of the chiming mechanism uniquely associated with the sonnerie expertise of Jaeger-LeCoultre. These include the silent chime governor, patented by the manufacture in 1895 to eliminate the buzzing noise created by the older anchor system. More recent in-house innovations showcased in the Quadriptyque are the crystal gongs (first seen in the Master Minute Repeater Antoine LeCoultre of 2005) that attach the repeater gongs directly to the sapphire crystal to exploit the material’s optimal acoustic properties, the square cross-sectional profile of the gongs themselves that maximise contact and energy transmission between the hammers and gongs (a mainstay of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s repeating watches since 2006), and the articulated trebuchet hammers (developed for the 2009 Hybris Mechanica Duomètre à Grande Sonnerie) that deliver a clean and strong strike to the gongs. In totality, these innovations allow Jaeger-LeCoultre minute repeaters to produce some of the loudest and clearest chiming wristwatches today.

Debuting in the Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 is a completely novel engineering of the chiming components to create a seamless chime with no pauses in between the hours, quarters and minutes. The conventional minute repeater mechanism utilises special pivoting racks that read the time off a series of cams and then proceed to activate each group of chimed notes in turn. This often results in silent gaps between the groups of chimed notes, especially when there are only hours and minutes to be struck, with no intervening quarters. The Hybris Mechanica Master Ultra Thin Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon (2014) and Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpétuel (2019) made exceptional strides in chiming know-how by reducing these silent gaps, but the Reverso Quadriptyque has reached the ultimate stage of expertise in this area. By refining and inverting specific steps in this mechanical sequence, the Quadriptyque has succeeded in eliminating these gaps entirely.

The chime of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 is an uninterrupted opus of acoustic excellence. It is the sound of innovation at its very apex.

Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185


Before the formal development of time reckoning systems, primitive societies observed celestial phenomena and created powerful myths and stories around the dance of the heavenly orbs above. The earliest astronomers were also mathematicians, and instruments constructed on their formulations were able to mechanically compute the positions of various celestial objects. The interaction between the various orbits of the Sun, Earth and Moon determine the rhythms of life, and watchmaking first evolved as a means to bring order to the world around us. As a watch manufacture with close to two centuries of fine watchmaking expertise, Jaeger-LeCoultre has mastered all aspects of time expression, from the quotidian to the esoteric. One of the hallmark complications of Jaeger-LeCoultre is the display of sidereal time, time that is determined with reference to the stars instead of the Sun, first presented in the Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication (2010).

This year, for the first time ever in the history of mechanical horology, Jaeger-LeCoultre unites three displays of lunar information — the synodic cycle, the draconic cycle and the anomalistic cycle — in a single wristwatch. This unique micromechanical combination of indications, located on the interior face of the cradle of the Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185, allows the determination of eclipse events (both solar and lunar) and rare lunar phenomena such as supermoons.

Occupying the top half of the interior face of the cradle of the Reverso Quadriptyque is a massive representation of the phases of the moon in the Northern Hemisphere. A laser-engraved moon is progressively covered and revealed by a mobile blue lacquer disc with gold glitter décor, corresponding to the age of the moon in the synodic cycle. While conventional displays of the moon phase accumulate one day of error after 32.5 months, the moon phase display of the Quadriptyque requires only one adjustment after 1,111 years.

Just below the moon phase display, on the left, is a counter with a three-dimensional micro-sculpted pink-gold sun orbited by a tiny hemispherical moon. This counter shows the draconic cycle, showing when the path of the Moon intersects with the orbit of the Earth around the Sun (known as the ecliptic). Such an intersection takes place twice in each cycle, indicated by the horizontal alignment on the counter of the moon and the sun. At this time, the Moon, Earth and Sun are all on the same plane; however, they may not be aligned. For them to be aligned, a phenomenon known as syzygy, an additional condition must be fulfilled — the Moon must be either in its new or full phase. When that happens, an eclipse event happens on Earth, either a lunar eclipse if the Moon is in its full phase, or a solar eclipse if the Moon is in its new phase. However, the actual visibility of the eclipse is dependent on various factors such as the geographical position of the viewer.

To the right of the draconic cycle counter is a domed representation of the Earth, micro-painted in enamel, with a hemispherical moon in eccentric orbit around it. This counter represents the anomalistic cycle, showing the varying distance between the Earth and Moon. At its apogee, the Moon is at its furthest distance from the Earth and is closest at its perigee. When the Moon is in its full phase near or at the perigee, an event known as a supermoon occurs, in which the Moon can appear to be up to 14 percent larger than usual in the sky.

The display of the synodic, draconic and anomalistic cycle together in a wristwatch is unprecedented in horology, with the latter two indications protected by patent, making the Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 the only watch ever made to provide such depth of information about astronomical phenomena.

The Hybris Mechanica family of timepieces at Jaeger-LeCoultre began with the 2003 Atmos Mystérieuse and has since grown to encompass close to 20 groundbreaking horological creations, including the Master Hybris Mechanica Gyrotourbillon 1 (2004), the Reverso Hybris Mechanica Grande Complication à Triptyque (2006), the Master Ultra Thin Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon (2014) and the Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpétuel (2019). The word Hybris originates from the Greek “hubris” that refers to the soaring ambition exhibited by the legendary heroes of antiquity. It is a promise made by Jaeger-LeCoultre to continually expand the horizons of watchmaking; a promise that has been dutifully kept for 18 years.


The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso was born in 1931, out of the need to protect delicate horological mechanisms amidst the balletic skirmish of hooves and mallets during games of polo. Today, 90 years later, a far older dance is reflected in the Reverso Hybris Mechanica Quadriptyque, one that guides our calendrical rhythms according to rules that are as precise and structured as those of the regal equestrian sport.

The original Reverso bore a single time-telling face, with a mobile case that could be turned over within its cradle, revealing a solid caseback. The next generation of the Reverso featured another dial on its caseback, either in a different design to accommodate the wearer’s aesthetic preference (Duetto) or displaying a second time zone (Duoface) to offer additional functionality when travelling. The Reverso Hybris Mechanica à Triptyque (2006) represented an evolutionary leap in horological innovation, with a third display positioned on the interior face of the Reverso cradle.

This year, the world’s first wristwatch with four faces premieres in the form of the Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 (Quadriptyque), the ultimate expression of the Reverso concept. On the last face of the Quadriptyque, the exterior face of the cradle, a representation of the phases of the Moon in the Southern Hemisphere is shown. Most indications of the moon phase are of the Northern Hemisphere perspective, and the Quadriptyque’s display of the Southern Hemisphere moon phase on its fourth face is the fulfilment of the Reverso’s fundamental dualism. A star-flecked sky chart, engraved and lacquered in a gradient of blue shades forms the backdrop to the pink-gold moon, all of which are created in the Atelier des Métiers Rares® of Jaeger-LeCoultre.

The secret to the Reverso Hybris Mechanica Quadriptyque’s four functioning display faces lies in a solution first used in the 2006 Reverso Hybris Mechanca Grande Complication à Triptyque. Every day at midnight, a pin extends out of the main case movement to activate a mechanical corrector in the cradle, which then advances the cradle displays. The mechanism driving the cradle displays is set directly into the cradle itself, without any additional movement plates that would increase the thickness of the watch. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s expertise in ultra-compact watchmaking makes the Quadriptyque, despite its multiple indications and complications, one of the most wearable high-complication watches of our time.


The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 comes in an exceptional presentation box with a built-in mechanism that allows the wearer to quickly and intuitively set all the calendar and astronomical displays of the watch after a period of being unworn.

A two-position crown on the side of the box is used to first set the number of days that have elapsed since the watch was last worn. With the Quadriptyque set within the correction support frame, the box corrector crown can then be extended to its second position and wound to rapidly bring the watch to the current date for all calendar and astronomical indications. There is no risk of overcorrecting the watch or damaging the movement, since the entire process is controlled by the box corrector mechanism.

The latest timepiece in the Hybris Mechanica series took six years of research and development. It was made possible only through the 188 years of innovation and expertise accrued within the workshops of La Grande Maison. With the Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 Quadriptyque, Jaeger-LeCoultre reasserts its position at the apogee of mechanical watchmaking and reaffirms its dedication to expanding the boundaries of horological knowledge.

Ulysse Nardin – Hourstriker Phantom, una edición limitada con Devialet

Devialet, la compañía francesa que está revolucionando el audio de alta definición con sus altavoces ovalados de lujo, y los legendarios relojeros Ulysse Nardin están trabajando juntos para crear una edición limitada de 85 relojes llamativos: una experiencia audible mejorada que se usa en la muñeca.

Ulysse Nardin

Ulysse Nardin – Hourstriker Phantom, una edición limitada con Devialet

Hacer cosas a medias no es parte del ADN de Ulysse Nardin o Devialet. Desde el inicio de ambas marcas, cada una ha sido impulsada por su deseo de mostrar su trabajo al mundo. Para uno, relojes de alto vuelo, para el otro, nuevos sistemas de sonido revolucionarios, ambos gracias a sus tecnologías patentadas. Al combinar las fortalezas de sus dos departamentos de Investigación y Desarrollo, las dos marcas se han unido para crear una experiencia de sonido única en forma de un reloj excepcional: el Hourstriker Phantom. El rendimiento acústico y la calidad del sonido lo convierten en un reloj sorprendente sin igual en la industria relojera.

“Nuestro principal objetivo era crear un reloj llamativo de alto rendimiento”, explica Patrick Pruniaux, CEO de Ulysse Nardin. “Además, fue el destino: Emmanuel Nardin, uno de los fundadores de Devialet que co-desarrolló el modelo Hourstriker Phantom es, de hecho, un descendiente de la familia Ulysse Nardin. Simplemente no podía inventarlo”.


Devialet ofrece algunos de los sistemas de sonido “made in France” más avanzados del mundo, para aquellos fanáticos de la música que buscan la experiencia auditiva perfecta, gracias a las más de 160 tecnologías patentadas de Devialet. Su producto estrella, The Phantom, una nueva generación de altavoces conectados de alta definición, es capaz de crear sonido de hasta 108 dB SPL (el modelo Gold Phantom es el más potente de la colección). Es del tamaño de un casco de moto y genera una calidad de sonido incomparable para una experiencia emocional intensa y revolucionaria. Phantom ahora pone su nombre al nuevo mecanismo de ataque de Ulysse Nardin.


Si los altavoces Devialet se han ganado a los fanáticos de la música, el Hourstriker Phantom atraerá a aquellos apasionados por los relojes llamativos. Este reloj que suena cada hora y media hora por comando, no solo le permite decir la hora, sino también escucharla.

Antes de que hubiera iluminación eléctrica, los relojes llamativos fueron concebidos originalmente con el objetivo de sonar a la hora en la oscuridad y son la encarnación de un sueño genuino. Desde la década de 1980, bajo el ímpetu de Rolf Schnyder, Ulysse Nardin es una de las primeras relojeras en revivir a estos cronometradores.

De la mano, los ingenieros de Devialet, expertos en fenómenos de distorsión, colaboraron con los relojeros de Ulysse Nardin especializados en sonido para redefinir cada paso en la cadena de señal de audio enviada desde los mecanismos de golpe de Ulysse Nardin para ofrecer el mejor rendimiento jamás registrado en un reloj llamativo, 85 dB a 100mm.

Con un mecanismo de golpe clásico, un martillo golpea un timbre que genera frecuencias de sonido, cuando se emite, indica la hora en el comando. Sin embargo, en Hourstriker Phantom, el talón del timbre está fijado por un sistema de brazos de torsión que cambia la dirección de las fuerzas de acción inducidas por las vibraciones del timbre. En un sistema clásico, las fuerzas producidas están esencialmente en el movimiento del reloj, que genera una pequeña cantidad de aire que luego es desplazado por los diversos componentes del reloj. Con Hourstriker Phantom, las fuerzas de acción creadas por el timbre se abren camino fuera del reloj. Estas

Las fuerzas se transfieren enérgicamente usando un brazo de transmisión a una membrana delgada, que se encuentra en la parte inferior del reloj. Como la membrana tiene una gran superficie, se desplaza una gran cantidad de aire,

lo que resulta en un alto nivel de sonido. Se podría comparar esto con un altavoz y su cono y membrana.

La parte inferior del reloj está perforada con ocho aberturas debajo de su membrana que permite que el sonido viaje y contiene el movimiento de fabricación automática UN-610. El resultado es sorprendente y todo el potencial sonoro de este reloj parece ser liberado, amplificado y mejorado. Su caja de titanio de 43 mm totalmente pulida también amplifica el sonido y extiende su resonancia a 85 decibelios, un nivel de sonido sin igual en el mundo de la relojería.

“Este nuevo Hourstriker Phantom es la esencia misma de la experiencia de Devialet expresada a través de un reloj: un objeto refinado con una relación compacta / rendimiento optimizada y potencia desenfrenada. Si los productos Devialet buscan dar al oyente la impresión de que el artista está justo en frente de ellos, entonces este nuevo reloj llamativo Ulysse Nardin da la sensación de un verdadero instrumento musical “, concluye Patrick Pruniaux.

La esfera del reloj está adornada con una esfera de antracita cepillada con satén inspirada en las figuras de Chladni, formada por la materialización de ondas vibratorias, un guiño a la red protectora del Devialet Phantom colocada sobre el tweeter. Escondido debajo de esta red esculpida en forma de encaje, el vidrio tintado oscurece el movimiento del reloj para una apariencia ultra contemporánea. Una característica pequeña pero original, las manos de color “oro rosa” apuntan hacia los índices de números arábigos, todos inclinados hacia afuera, en una sola fila y en el sentido de las agujas del reloj, como una brújula azul marino. A las tres en punto, un pequeño chip de “oro rosa” desaparece y vuelve a aparecer dependiendo de si desea activar o desactivar el mecanismo de golpe (botón ON / OFF). Con 72.500 francos suizos, el Hourstriker Phantom se ha convertido en el reloj llamativo más asequible del mercado. La pieza se ve reforzada por una correa de cocodrilo negro y se venderá como una edición limitada de 85 piezas, evocando los 85 decibeles que alcanza majestuosamente.

Sobre Ulysse Nardin – Fabricación de la libertad

Ulysse Nardin es la fabricación pionera inspirada en el mar y que ofrece relojes innovadores a los espíritus libres.

Fundada por el Sr. Ulysse Nardin en 1846 y miembro orgulloso del grupo global de lujo Kering desde noviembre de 2014, Ulysse Nardin ha escrito algunos de los mejores capítulos de la historia de la Alta Relojería.

4. Interruptor de encendido / apagado de la luz estroboscópica

Apagar la luz estroboscópica le permite al oyente concentrarse más efectivamente en la música, especialmente en ambientes con poca luz.

Características del producto del SL-1210GAE
Motor de accionamiento directo sin núcleo

Los giradiscos analógicos convencionales tienen problemas con la degradación de la calidad del sonido causada por factores como la vibración de velocidad por minuto durante la rotación y la irregularidad de rotación llamada “engranaje”. En el SL-1210GAE, el uso de un motor de accionamiento directo sin núcleo (sin núcleo de hierro) elimina el engranaje. Además, la construcción de doble rotor reduce la carga del rodamiento mientras mantiene un alto par, y también reduce la vibración diminuta durante la rotación. Estos factores permiten la reproducción del sonido cálido y detallado de alto nivel disponible en discos de vinilo analógicos.

Tecnología de control de motores de alta precisión

La aplicación de la tecnología de control del motor desarrollada para dispositivos Blu-ray, y el cambio del modo de manejo según el estado operativo del motor logra un alto par de arranque y una alta estabilidad de velocidad para una reproducción óptima.

Plato giratorio de tres capas

El plato giratorio presenta una construcción de tres capas con una placa superior de latón rígidamente combinada, un plato de núcleo fundido a presión de aluminio y un revestimiento de goma sólida que cubre toda su superficie posterior para eliminar la resonancia no deseada, logrando así una rigidez general superior y amortiguación de vibraciones. Esto ofrece una estabilidad rotacional suave y una alta masa inercial que supera el SP-10MK2 (el estándar de plato giratorio de transmisión directa utilizado por las estaciones de transmisión en todo el mundo), además de tener más del doble de la masa inercial del SL-1200MK5.

Ajuste de balance de alto nivel

Cuando la distribución de peso del plato giratorio es desigual, se produce un exceso de vibración o ruido durante la rotación, lo que provoca una degradación de la calidad del sonido. Para contrarrestar esto, el equilibrio de la plataforma giratoria se ajusta en la fábrica mediante el uso de equipos especializados de ajuste de equilibrio de alta precisión para cada artículo después de que se ensambla la plataforma giratoria. Los giradiscos que se han sometido a un ajuste se etiquetan con una etiqueta que dice “EQUILIBRADO” para indicar que se ha realizado un ajuste individual.

Brazo de tono de alta sensibilidad

El brazo de tono emplea magnesio ligero que tiene un alto efecto de amortiguación, con un estiramiento en frío que mejora las características del material y logra la alta precisión requerida. Además, se logra una alta sensibilidad al movimiento inicial mediante el empleo de la construcción de suspensión de cardán Technics tradicional con el eje de rotación horizontal y el eje de rotación vertical que se cruzan en un único punto central, así como rodamientos de alta precisión que utilizan una carcasa procesada por corte.

Terminales de alta calidad

El uso de terminales de fono y terminales de tierra chapados en oro y chapados en latón evita la degradación de la calidad del sonido al tiempo que permite conectar y desconectar fácilmente los cables. Además, el uso de la construcción de blindaje metálico dentro de la carcasa reduce los efectos del ruido externo.

Construcción de gabinete de cuatro capas

Se agrega un panel superior negro de aluminio inmaculado de 10 mm de grosor procesado en una construcción de tres capas de aluminio fundido a presión, BMC (Bulk Molding Compound) y caucho de clase pesada. Esta construcción de cuatro capas combina la alta rigidez necesaria para una excelente amortiguación de vibraciones con una construcción sólida superior y un acabado y sensación lujosos.

Un vínculo duradero: el TAG Heuer Monaco y el automovilismo en Mónaco

A finales de la década de 1950, aprovechando el legado de la marca en cronómetros, cronómetros de tablero y cronógrafos adecuados para las carreras, Jack Heuer vio la oportunidad de involucrarse aún más en la era dorada del automovilismo, fusionando su pasión con el negocio familiar. Inspirado por la acción que presenció en la pista, comenzó una tradición de nombrar sus creaciones después de las evocadoras carreras en Monza, Silverstone, Montreal y Mónaco. Famoso por su glamoroso Gran Premio de Fórmula 1, Mónaco también ha prestado su nombre a una de las colecciones de relojes más emblemáticas de TAG Heuer desde 1969.

Vanguardista pero atemporalmente elegante, el Grand Prix de Monaco Historique de TAG Heuer Monaco es una nueva versión audaz de un reloj inconformista, y una celebración del vínculo duradero entre TAG Heuer, su línea icónica de Mónaco y los prestigiosos eventos de carreras que tienen lugar en su destino homónimo.
