Reverso Neva

Reverso Neva

Christened after the Neva River, which glides past the wintry palaces of St Petersburg and also across the caseback of the Reverso, the creators of this diamond-covered Jaeger-LeCoultre watch (33mm X 20.5mmx8.5mm) wanted to evoke the way sunshine glistens on snow. Instead of creating rows of uniform gems perched in gold claws, snow-set diamonds are selected from different-sized stones – from tiny 0.05mm to 1.6mm diamonds – and then set into a metal structure with hollowed-out areas that match the size of the stone. One by one, and in a position that will maximise its fire, each diamond is settled into position, up close to its neighbour, to reveal as little metal as possible. Even looking at these diamond watches under a loupe makes it practically impossible to see the setting. Like individual snowflakes, snow-setting ensures that no two watches can ever be the same since the setting depends entirely on a master gem setters creativity and personal decision. The watch’s rectangular case is made of 18-ct white gold and is set with diamonds on the top and bottom of the case carriage, and on the reverse (flip-over) side of the watch case. The dial is silver and continues with the animal-striped pattern found on the watch’s case. The dial simply displays the hours and minutes indication to keep the focus on the watch’s glamorous aesthetic. The case back is solid and the strap is made of black satin with a deployment clasp.
