Ferdinand. Hodler died in Geneva in 1918. This year marks the 100th anniversary of his death. The entire art world, especially the major Swiss museums, celebrates this symbolist figure and well-known Swiss painter. Jaeger-LeCoultre, founded in 1833, also pays tribute to the Swiss artist, whose Swiss lakes and mountains are reminiscent of Vallée de Joux, the birthplace of the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory. Ferdinand. Hodler’s parallel landscapes reflect his views on the laws of nature. Each work presents the world in a clear and concise manner, in harmony.
The front of this watch is guilloched. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s guilloché craftsmen relied on professional knowledge and rich experience to retouch the faceplate with a long-established machine. The tiny diamond-shaped pattern on the face plate shows a weaving effect, delicate and chic. Later, the craftsmen covered translucent enamel on the carvings, carefully selected tones, in line with the colors of the back paintings. The back of the case is also carefully hand-carved, and the enamel lines outline the elegant composition of each painting. Each detail is unique, further sublimating the painting’s exquisiteness, and complementing the famous three decorative engravings of the Reverso watch.

In order to express the quiet beauty of Hodler’s works, the master of enamel has spent more than 50 hours making each watch in order to faithfully reproduce the original

Reverso Tribute Enamel is inspired by Ferdinand. Hodler’s masterpiece. In order to express the quiet beauty of Hodler’s works, the master of enamel has spent more than 50 hours making each watch in order to faithfully reproduce the original. For Jaeger-LeCoultre’s enamel masters, each painting is also a difficult challenge. The biggest problem is to reproduce the large original on the 3 cm2 surface of the Reverso watch. Paintings include:

‘Lake Geneva with Mont Blanc in the Morning Light’, 1918 (74 x 150 cm) The key to this oil painting is to accurately capture the pink gold hue of the morning light, which requires a lot of thought. The front of the watch uses a light and soft gray to match the color of the painting. The sky and the lake seem to be intertwined. The painting also delicately shows the contrast of light and dark through small color points, bringing out the sense of peace and tranquility in the entire landscape.

‘Lake Thun with Symmetric Reflections Before Sunrise’, 1904 (89 x 100 cm). This painting is even more beautiful. The master watchmaker mainly adjusts the blue tones to show the beauty of the mountains and forests. The clear and clear lake water makes the stones appear in the turquoise foreground, which is extraordinary, which also inspired the enamel master to find the pine green tone to decorate the front panel. Ferdinand. Hodler’s well-known symmetrical composition is evident in enamel micropainting.

Lake Thun, Symmetric Reflection, 1909 (67.5 x 92 cm). The third painting depicts the reflection of water in the Alps, capturing the last daylight in the day. The mirror effect and the soft feel of blue and white are reminiscent of the tranquil scenery of Lake de Joux. The guilloche pattern covers a layer of translucent light sky blue enamel. The Reverso Tribute Enamel enamel watch combines the Art Deco style of the logo, faceted appliqued hour markers, crown prince hands and the track-type minute scale ring in the center of the dial. Craftsmanship. Three new works continue the elaborate design of Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso series enamel watches, each of which is directed to Ferdinand. Hodler’s tribute is sure to appeal to art lovers. This is another way for watch factories to share rare crafts (Métiers Rares), while expressing the great workshop’s love for the art and cultural world.
