New Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Small Seconds Green

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-13:47
Just tried this at a JLC boutique event in Singapore followed by a small group JLC collectors' dinner. The green is very very nice ! Some quick live pics. I think if paired with a brown, grey or black strap it will look even better ! Green dial with green...  

That was quick Robin ...

Thanks for sharing this with us.

I miss the times I share more here

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-18:57
Slowly getting back.

Thank you and I'm glad to be home :)

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 8th, 2021-05:27

Will be cool to do zoom !

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 8th, 2021-05:27

Like last time! ;)

Spot on my friend

 By: amanico : April 7th, 2021-23:22

Not yet my friend

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-18:58
Boutiques have priority. The watch is a demo unit. We could only pay deposits not buy yesterday But will be in soon. Stay tuned.

Thank you very much!!!

 By: Reuven Malter : April 7th, 2021-13:55

Pleasure my friend

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-18:59

Thanks for posting, Robin.

 By: sirdavid : April 7th, 2021-14:10
Great to see a wrist shot. I think you're spot on. I'd love to see it on a tan/brown strap, with beige chinos. I sense it has more of a country squire vibe than a city gent?

Vibe wise yes more country squire

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-19:00
You describe it very well! Most welcome and happy to share my friend


 By: amanico : April 7th, 2021-14:36

Yes it seems deeper

 By: Gelato Monster : April 7th, 2021-18:14

Yes dark olive green :)

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-19:00

I think so too !

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 8th, 2021-05:26


 By: Gelato Monster : April 8th, 2021-17:07

It's a deep olive green

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-19:00
Lovely hue !

Thanks Nico !

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-19:00
Mine coming soon


 By: amanico : April 7th, 2021-22:46

This time I didn't buy during your speech

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-22:54
Which was rather rude of me back in the days lol

Hehe like the good old days

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 8th, 2021-05:26


 By: amanico : April 8th, 2021-05:56

I felt the same

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-19:01
And my wallet too

You guys in Singapore are so lucky!

 By: sham1 : April 7th, 2021-15:57
I was invited to a JLC dinner and presentation last night but we were only treated to a video with no physical watches present.

Ah what we saw are demo units

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-19:01
To seduce us to take orders 😆

lol :P

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-19:53
Very soon you can see them

Is it a dark olive green, Robin?

 By: Ano Nuevo : April 7th, 2021-16:00
Or a chameleon green, depending upon the lighting? The photos on the web vary quite a bit. A.N.

It's more dark olive green

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-19:02
But it can reflect under intense light to look brighter of course. Natural look is dark olive green. As I age maybe I am less accurate though. My kids tend to say they see lighter colors when I feel it's darker. Caveat on eyesight here lol

You are most welcome:)

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-22:55

Me too ! Great taste:)

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-19:02

I am with you on that

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-19:54
I didnt get the blue tribute small seconds because I have too many blue dial watches. The burgundy is less easy to match my typical clothes colours. So the olive green it is

You're convincing me now to go ahead...

 By: Pun : April 7th, 2021-19:58
My wife would kill you if she knew who was behind this 😂😂

Lol 😆

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 7th, 2021-22:54
Don't tell her ! Say it's Nico :p


 By: amanico : April 8th, 2021-23:20

Time to get both! ;)

 By: amanico : April 7th, 2021-23:16

That would be tops!

 By: amanico : April 8th, 2021-00:58

Nice pair then!

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 8th, 2021-05:25

Lol I sense an injection of ...

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 8th, 2021-05:24
Vlad poison here

You sense right. ;)

 By: amanico : April 8th, 2021-05:56

Tough choice between the 2 !

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 8th, 2021-05:24
I prefer the green

Yes I think it will work very well Reuven

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 8th, 2021-05:25
Green and black goes very well. I'm thinking of brown but green and brown may end up looking like ..... a tree lol

Thank you!!

 By: Reuven Malter : April 8th, 2021-07:52

Naturally 😆

 By: sirdavid : April 8th, 2021-09:42

This just looks wrong.

 By: Horo_Traveler : April 8th, 2021-23:37
Sorry in advance if this come across as too strong, but it is from a good place as JLC got me into this hobby years ago and I’ve been hoping for years that their Rip Van Winkle decision makers will finally wake up and realize that their core value proposi... 

Lol I paid a deposit for the green dial

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 9th, 2021-00:42
So yes I'm a dupe. :p

"Wake up and give us what we're looking for"

 By: sirdavid : April 9th, 2021-02:00
I asked JLC for a green dial variant of the Tribute Small Seconds model (via the London Boutique last summer). I do not claim the request to be original with me, and I suspect they were planning this item long before I asked for it, but still it is a watc...

Thanks, appreciate the perspective and quote.

 By: Horo_Traveler : April 9th, 2021-02:32
I am a big fan of the brand and look forward to the new releases. Just been jaded by the ennui induced by their recent efforts.

And I guess we should not forget...

 By: sirdavid : April 9th, 2021-02:49
the limited edition Tribute Duoface in Burgundy and Rose Gold (398256J) when discussing the 90th anniversary celebration releases, even if it was officially unveiled at the very end of 2020. Though one could view it as simply a different dial colour varia... 

That rose gold red was beautiful!

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 9th, 2021-05:59
But I still prefer the new green

I wouldn’t bet on JLC’s market research prowesses judging by their recent share loss...

 By: Horo_Traveler : April 9th, 2021-03:02
...if one goes by the recent Morgan Stanley/LuxConsult report. I am of course a lone voice, but one who supported the brand steadily across the range over the years. Asking them to wake up may not win the argument for me but by them asking repeatedly for ... 

Good points made

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 9th, 2021-05:57
Brands do need to take feedback from their passionate collectors

In total agreement.

 By: amanico : April 9th, 2021-06:38

Yes the green is well received here in Singapore

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 9th, 2021-05:58
Well said. Let's see what else our beloved grand maison releases soon

Sorry, I didn’t mean to imply those who ordered the green watch were dupes.

 By: Horo_Traveler : April 9th, 2021-02:46
It is more the audacity of JLC believing that new colors in the same watch every year will continue to impress collectors. The boutique called me about the greenie and I told them I wasn’t looking to complete a Reverso rainbow. Let’s wait and see what the... 

No worries buddy I know your intentions were good

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 9th, 2021-04:06
As collectors we must always expect more especially from grand maisons like JLC! I was pulling your leg when I said I was a dupe I happen to like the green to complement my blue Rio de Janerio Reverso. Cheers Robin

Thanks for sharing

 By: Ping.Timeout : April 9th, 2021-18:55
A nice follow on to the burgundy reverso. Will likely drop by soon to MBS to view in person. Like others, i still winder if there will be more releases in the 1931 tribute style, similar to the London, rouge, bleu, US, rio de janeiro and rama LE. Perhaps ... 

Most welcome

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 10th, 2021-01:51
Let's see what they come up with next

Very soon ! We are in this week now in Asia haha

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 11th, 2021-18:26

Looking forward to the reveal

 By: Ping.Timeout : April 13th, 2021-03:10
The teaser seems to reveal another special edition reverso

Yes indeed

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 13th, 2021-06:56
JLC's Instagram revealed a teaser yesterday. Looks cool!

Nice piece !

 By: Ping.Timeout : April 13th, 2021-22:10

It's really nice in the metal

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 11th, 2021-18:24
The press pics make it look brighter and more vibrant but it looks darker and more mature in the real

Hi Robin

 By: benlee338 : April 11th, 2021-20:45
Do you know if this will be a boutique exclusive or limited run model ?

Hi Ben

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 11th, 2021-22:09
It's a regular edition reference. Not limited and not boutique exclusive

Finally saw this in person today

 By: Ping.Timeout : April 15th, 2021-23:22
In my opinion, even the official pics dont do justice. It’s mesmerizing to say the least. The green looks closer to olive green ala 5711 patek. Temptation to the max... already long waitlist. Saw the first 3 pieces for delivery, likely someone(s) in this ... 

Lol glad you like it !

 By: jrwong23 (aka watchthebin) : April 16th, 2021-03:06
I know the 3 amigos... always these 3... same 3 in Singapore with the Rio de Janeiro blue reverso :p

I thought so..... ;)
