The Reverso à Éclipses collection is a celebration of the tradition of fne enameling and haute horologie. This unique piece, made by special order, displays a multi-chrome enamel portrait of a Chinese lady holding a fan who is artistically and skillfully rendered. Fashioned afer the 1991 oil on canvas titled Poppy by the renowned Chinese artist Chen Yifei (1946 – 2005), the enamel displays the romantic realism he is best known. The enamel work is signed by Christophe Bernardot, a Jaeger-LeCoutre enameller. The Reverso case is enhanced with a shutter system, opened and closed through a wheel at the 2 o’clock, to reveal the portrait beneath. The in-house manual caliber 849 is only 1.85mm thick, which allows for the maker to add these exquisite enamels. Presented in excellent overall condition, this is arguably a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity to own a Reverso like none other.
