2015 marks the 125th anniversary of the death of Dutch post-impressionist painter, Vincent van Gogh.* Jaeger-LeCoultre is presenting a limited edition of just five pieces of the “Reverso à Eclipse” watch, featuring Van Gogh’s iconic Sunflowers on the dial.
The idea for this unique watch came as a result of collaboration between Jaeger-LeCoultre, Dutch retail partner Gassan, and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, that wished to create a remarkable piece demonstrating craftsmanship, art and heritage as a tribute to the world famous Dutch master Vincent van Gogh.* Van Gogh’s Sunflowers — recreated here as an enamel painting — appears as a hidden treasure beneath the dial when the shutters are opened.
