Mechanical manual winding movement, approx. 1400 parts, 28,800 vibrations per hour, 2 barrels: 50-hour power-reserve for hours, minutes and the perpetual calendar, 10 hours for the striking mechanism in Grande Sonnerie (grand striking) mode.
Functions: hour, minute, Westminster chime, the longest melody ever chimed in the world, 4 striking modes: Grande Sonnerie, Petite Sonnerie, Minute-repeater mode (with activation system on the crown push-piece), Silence. Flying tourbillon: balance with regulating screws, 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz). Perpetual calendar, retrograde day, month and date indications, leap year display.
The perpetual calendar mechanism features retrograde hands for all functions from date, month and weekday. A small leap year indication rounds off the calendar function. The instant mechanism is programmed until the year 2100, and in any case can be adjusted via push pieces hidden in the case between the lugs at 12 o’clock.
The flying tourbillon is cantilevered and thus held only at the underside. The whole mechanism, which consists of 73 parts, measures 12.42 millimetres in diameter and 3.85 in height. The lightweight titanium cage, placed on a lubricant-free ceramic ball bearing, is reduced to its bare essence and the 10-millimeter diameter balance wheel is fitted with four regulating screws, ten weight screws and a balance spring with Breguet over coil beating at 4 Hertz.
First used in the Master Minute Repeater of 2007, the patented ‘crystal gong’ features gongs attached to a layer of metallic foil coated onto the watch’s crystal to deliver the best possible sound. Made of a special, secret alloy, they are manufactured completely in one piece from the gong foot through to the whole wire; their cross section being square and not round in order to provide a larger contact point for the hammer which in turn can strike more forcefully. The crystal glass is then pressed into the case made of white gold – a case-material with one of the highest acoustic yield – sealing the watch.

Jaeger-LeCoultre - Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Special Italian Edition
2011 is an important year for Reverso, with the 80th anniversary of the timepiece that has now become a true watchmaking icon. At the same time, 2011 is an important year for Italy, which celebrates the 150th anniversary of its Unification. Jaeger-leCoultre pays tribute to these important anniversaries with an exclusive limited edition for the Italian market. Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Italico in steel, limited edition of 150 pieces. Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Italico in pink gold, limited edition of 50 pieces.
The distinctive feature of this special edition is its dial. At 8 o'clock, the numeral is replaced with the letter R (and the word REVERSO forming the stem of the letter itself) in red. The letter R was in fact used in the Roman alphabet to indicate (in rare usage) the number octoginta, 80. The dial is also rendered unique thanks to elements in red, small details that recall the exclusive limited editions created for the Italian market (Master Ultra Thin Italico and Reverso 976 Italico).
After 80 years spent in celebration of classicism, the new Grande Reverso Ultra Thin wishes to be revolutionary, aiming for extreme simplicity. The extremely fine thickness of the Calibre Jaeger-LeCoultre 822 (just 2.94 millimetres) has allowed the thinnest ever Reverso to be created. The case is larger and truly stands out on the wrist, but the extreme thinness of the timepiece and its delicately moulded form mean that it is light and comfortable to wear. The clean dial features vertical guilloche decoration, highly sober Arabic numerals, and fine blued hands: all the aesthetic codes of the Reverso are showcased here in this new ultra-thin version. This model expresses the very essence of the Reverso's personality, combining tradition with nobility, style and elegance.
