New Reverso Book by Nick Foulkes and Published By Assouline

 By: patrick_y : January 15th, 2021-11:25
I like coffee table books. Don't ask me why. I just do. Here's another way to spend some of your hard earned money. It's a Jaeger-leCoultre coffee table book all about the REVERSO! The Reverso is my favorite watch from Jaeger-LeCoultre. With lots of big h...  

Thanks for the reminder. I have to have this book.

Its for sale since december 6th at the big online retailer. Does anyone already bought it? I would like to ask a question to an owner of that book...

I too have been confused by Amazon

 By: robsallnow : January 15th, 2021-12:47
regarding this book. I first discovered there would be a Reverso book last summer when searching Amazon UK for any book about Reversos (to go with my Moonwatch Only book)...and I was gobsmacked to see one was to be published in September, I added it to my... 

That is confusing...

Don't say that! I'm trying not to add to my collection of coffee table books!

Watches take less space than books sometimes!

From the movie Oscar...

 By: patrick_y : January 17th, 2021-10:21
In the movie "Oscar" it shows an Italian mafioso named Angelo, who has become wealthy due to the prohibition of alcohol in the USA by supplying bootlegged alcohol. Angelo is taking elocution lessons to become a more dignified person since he is now wealth... 

Funny secret of the day: when I speak Italian, I don't pronounce the "r" correctly (this is of course not an "issue" in English where the "r" is totally different, but it might have been e.g. also in Spanish, etc.)...

 By: FabR : January 17th, 2021-13:25
To put it in a fancy way, that's how Gianni Agnelli (or the Italian nobles, which I'm not) used to put it less fancy, it's called "R moscia" and it drove my parents plus a logopedist crazy when I was a baby, before they finally gave up on me! ;... 

Totally ignorant here...

 By: patrick_y : January 18th, 2021-14:39
I've seen Gianni Agnelli speak on television before and I never noticed any strange accent nor strange "R" pronounciation. I'm particularly forgiving of accents and accepting of accents and different people. So I'm not the most critical here. But I want t... 

You usually can't tell the Italian "soft r" when someone speaks English, it's totally a different sound...only if you hear him (or me, or many others) speak in Italian, and know the language well enough, I think it becomes immediately clear.

 By: FabR : January 18th, 2021-14:54
The "rest" of our accent is of course completely Italian (!), it's just the "r" that's much softer...say, closer to skipping it than pronouncing it. I like it, at least on me, but it IS no doubt noticeable! ;-)

Dare I hope...

 By: sirdavid : January 15th, 2021-19:35
the book includes details of the 90th Anniversary models, and it's publication date has been delayed until after they have been unveiled? I doubt it, as I wasn't expecting to see all the new models before the book is due to ship on 1st February. But it se... 

This looks like a beautiful must have!

Even though I have never desired a Reverso I am still very excited to see what the team at JLC can surprise us with! 😊

How can you not desire a Reverso?

 By: patrick_y : January 16th, 2021-10:53
Isn't Art Deco the same to all men? I'm sure after you've flipped through this book you'll realize that you want a Reverso! It's THE ORIGINAL SPORTS WATCH. JLC should use that as their slogan for Reverso. It's elegant, sporty, and historically significant... 


 By: amanico : January 20th, 2021-00:42

100% sure it will not be round! ;)

Good things are coming soon!

 By: patrick_y : January 20th, 2021-09:25
I promise I don't have any inside knowledge. But considering it's an anniversary year for the Reverso, I'm almost certain that something exciting will be coming soon!

Anytime soon? Or like months away...

 By: cory : January 20th, 2021-22:47
Pretty excited to see what they unveil.

You obviously know whats coming:)

 By: cory : January 20th, 2021-23:18
Is it like REALLY good?

A matter of weeks, I guess.

 By: amanico : January 21st, 2021-00:22

Something for you? ;)

 By: amanico : January 24th, 2021-01:52

ha ha... just another one to dream about ;)

 By: cory : January 24th, 2021-10:08
Any new release from JLC is always really exciting.

What a collection! What a collection of chairs too! You've got some of the most iconic chairs!

Can't wait to get this.

I'm going to see if I can enjoy it without owning one.

 By: patrick_y : January 18th, 2021-10:50
It's like things in a museum... You want them, but can't afford the, and they're not for sale. So you live without it. I'm going to give that a try!

Buy the Book

You only live once.

I need to buy more coffee tables...

 By: patrick_y : January 18th, 2021-10:47
I may succumb and just buy the book.

Thanks for the heads-up!

 By: eklektik : January 18th, 2021-15:54
A nice Reverso book needs to fill the gap between the 90s and now, nothing thorough has been written since Manfred Fritz. Maybe this one? Although Foulkes is sometimes too much about aesthetic rather than technical (his "time tamed" was a bit disappointin... 

Yes, Foulkes style of writing is very history based and aesthetics based.

 By: patrick_y : January 19th, 2021-13:33
Still, his writing is very well researched and beautifully presented.
