Eminently feminine with its luminous gem-setting and graceful dial, the Reverso One Duetto Jewelry draws inspiration from the earliest ladies’ Reverso models of the 1930s. Its fine, elongated features – magnified by the brilliance of the diamonds – are emblematic of Art Deco.
The Manufacture’s artisan jewellers set the three iconic Reverso gadroons on either side of the dial with rows of brilliant-cut diamonds to bring a unique dazzle to this timepiece. On the front face, the stones set off the gentle shimmer of the Balinese mother-of-pearl dial, with its Arabic numerals that seem drawn by hand. The lines that define each corner of this face subtly emphasise the geometry of the timepiece and its Art Deco spirit.
On the reverse, black opal throws out mysterious glints reflecting myriad shades of blue – from midnight blue, through tinges of green, to indigo. This stone is given dramatic depth by a diamond setting, evocative of celestial rays. A satin strap of midnight blue brings out the ravishing beauty of this face. And to further channel the period feel, the crown has been crafted with very Art Deco geometric facets that create a play of reflections from the rays of the sun.
