Some pics of the Reverso Evening ....

Singapore - April 15, 2011, Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrated 80th Year of the legendary Reverso, the watch strong enough to survive a polo match with a dinner at a colonial house, the Burkill Hall at the Singapore Botanical Gardens.  At the same time, also to showcase some of the SIHH 2011 Collections to a group of Jaeger-LeCoultre collectors and enthusiasts.



Guests were picked up at a carpark about 50 metres from the venue, Burkill Hall ...

Thanks for sharing Stefan.

The black chrono looks cool. How big is it BTW,44mm? Would very much like to see the two Deepsea in the metal. Did you try those on? cheers fernando

Yes, Fernando. I posted something about it.

No message body

yes, i did try both of them...

 
 By: Stefan : April 21st, 2011-09:46
... i, including other people at the event, also like the US version although the dial looks a bit of busier than that of European one. for the size of the black chrono, i read Nico had provided you the answer thanks, fernando. stefan

Great post Steven!

It was a great time with nice people who were truly watchnuts. I particularly like the Deep Sea Alarm and the glow in the dark triangles on the bezel. Had some time handling it and the alarm was more of a whirr-buzz than a ring, which is unique.

thanks, Cookies...

 
 By: Stefan : April 21st, 2011-09:48
... btw, which version of DSA you would like more? stefan

Haha,both are unique

 
 By: Cookies : April 22nd, 2011-00:11
I like the version without the big words inside. Very clean, balanced and looks almost better than the Polaris. Wish I can take it diving in the deep blue sea. What about you, sir?

Almost like if you were at the SIHH, discovering the 2011 Collection.

 
 By: amanico : April 15th, 2011-22:45
Did you also see the Reverso Enamel and the Reverso Minute Repeater? I think that, at the exception of these 2 pieces, you saw them all. Did Mr Lambert give you some informations about the 2011 collection? Well done, Stefan! Thanks a lot. Nicolas.

ref: at the exception of these 2 pieces, you saw them all

 
 By: Stefan : April 21st, 2011-09:51
... i did not see the Reverso Enamel and Reverso MR... wish i could see them there! in fact, i am keen to see Master 8 Days PC, i asked the staff there, they said it would arrive here around Oct. stefan

yes...

 
 By: Stefan : April 21st, 2011-10:20
... i have asked the JLC Boutique staff to inform once those pieces arrive here i will then go down the shop to see them stefan

Where do you see Temptation, hs?

 
 By: amanico : April 15th, 2011-23:01
Which one is taking your heart? Best, Nicolas.

Heart already taken.. Still temptation(s)..

THAT's a kind but nifty question: - Well, you caught me on that ( almost).. - But, as I am sure you pretty much realized, no better know: Some brief dwellings to your friendly tease: So I'll start with my very personal MUSTS, which are sealed in: 1: and a... 

Ok, ok, keep cool, or you'll dive into madness. :)))

 
 By: amanico : April 15th, 2011-23:53
I have the feeling you will end with the 2 TT Mermaids, and, if you can add a third one, the TT 1931. If you don't get the 2 TT DSAs mermaids, but only one, you will regret the other. As for the other dreams, keep cool, take your time, hold your breath, a... 

Wise men.. Still can have hot blood .. Thanks , really ! :)))

 
 By: hs111 : April 16th, 2011-00:26
Well, of course: - was just meandering; again thanks for wise & well- proven advice: - listening to the Master helps, getting one along.. Am sure, also wise men sometimes feel little tortures. Honest Q, if you kindly allow: ( i know you mentioned , that b... 

The 2 TT DSAs have a different character.

 
 By: amanico : April 16th, 2011-00:34
One is more like a bad boy while the 2d ( European ) is more classic. The thing is that I'm pretty sure you will like both of them. BUT, you're aboslutely right, and seeing it in the lfesh is the best way to go. On the other side, the thing is that they s... 

Great help ! .. Thank you really ! .. So kind efforts :))

 
 By: hs111 : April 16th, 2011-00:52
That sounds pefect - one aside to decide, WOW ! - Very kind understanding and great advice in general ! Sincere thanks, as always ! Again, best, hs )) PS: - will send you brief PM ( a bit later) in addition, if I may

Nice to see the pics of those new models, especially in a more natural light.

From the third photo I can see the room is packed. That's nice to see JLC with...
