Reverso Tribute is a line of Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watches launched in 2016.

Overview

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso line is long and complicated, with the variety of case, dial, complication, and name options exploding after the company re-launched it in the 1980s. After the majority of Reverso watches adopted the "Grande Taille" case in the 1990s, the company launched an even larger Grande Reverso/XGT range, then the Squadra, Gran'Sport, ladies options, and complicated models. After 2011, the company began paring back the sport models to focus on more classic heritage pieces.

As the 85th anniversary of the Reverso line approached in 2016, Jaeger-LeCoultre cleaned house. Now, the heritage pieces would be moved to the Reverso Tribute brand, a new line of Reverso One women's watches was added, and the majority of new concepts would be called Reverso Classic.

The Reverso Tribute model range was announced in 2016 with just two models: The Tribute Duoface (also called Tribute Duo) and the Tribute Calendar. Both had unique cases from the Classic lineup, but this differentiation would not last. A late addition in 2016 was the Cal. 179 Tribute Gyrotourbillon in a massive new 51x31 mm platinum case. These were joined in 2017 by the Tribute Moon, which shared the Tribute Calendar case. 2018 saw the introduction of the Reverso Tribute Small Seconds, Tribute Duoface Large, and (late in the year) Cal. 847 Tourbillon "Duoface", both of which shared the case of the Reverso Classic Large Small Seconds.
