If you have time to watch the mobile phone, you can flip the case at any time. , Then you can wear history paintings directly on your hands and walk around.

Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso series recently launched three micro-painted enamel craft watches, each limited to eight. The brand uses the paintings of the three masters of the East and the West as the model, and reproduces three famous paintings on the watch.

Jaeger-LeCoultre chose three masters in Lintong: Georges Seurat, Xu Beihong, and Geshi Beizhai. To reflect these artistic paintings, Jaeger-LeCoultre chose a platinum case with precious metal to paint the enamel miniatures. Let’s take a look at each of the three masterpieces listed on the Reverso watch.

Reverso Tribute Enamel: Georges Seurat, Sunday Afternoon at Big Bowl Island

‘Sunday Afternoon on Big Bowl Island’, painted between 1884 and 1886, is one of the most beautiful examples of the art of stippling by George Seurat. As a neo-impressionist French painter, Seurat was one of the main soul figures in the 19th century art world. The paintings were drawn on the banks of the Seine near Paris, where locals love to admire the river views and enjoy the pleasant, unspoiled surroundings. The stippling technique involves juxtaposing tiny color points without using larger strokes, allowing the viewer’s eyes to ‘blend’ colors naturally. To create this epitome, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s enamel artisans must face many challenges. The first challenge was to reproduce a painting over 3 meters wide on a surface of 3 square centimeters. The enamelist must create his own stippling skills. Creating stippling on enamel is very complicated. After painting, the enamelist must overlay several protective enamel layers on top of each other to change the intensity of the watch’s color. For color intensity, the enamelist used a darker shade than the original design. This is a long process, and it takes more than 70 hours to complete the creation, which does not include the time spent in the initial study of ideal colors.

Reverso Tribute Enamel: Xu Beihong Painting

Xu Beihong (1895-1953) was one of the most famous painters of the 20th century in China. He is famous for oil painting, drawing, pastel and calligraphy. In China, his horse paintings have made him very popular. On the original, more than 5 meters wide, ten horses gallop in the natural scenery of China. The enamelist was inspired by the two horses in the painting. Jaeger-LeCoultre explores the art of ink painting with this work. The faceplate is carefully crafted with a guilloche pattern of longitudinal geometric patterns, embellished with creamy white ivory enamel, showing a delicate mother-of-pearl feel. Although the protective layer of enamel reduces the spontaneity of the image, it must reproduce the sense of movement, fluidity, and lightness conveyed by the ink splash technique. As a result, artisans spent a lot of time figuring out the correct actions that best represented horse activity. In addition to drawing the dynamics of the horse, small objects on the horse such as the horse’s mane are also quite difficult for the painter to handle.

Reverso Tribute Enamel Enamel: Katsushika Hokusai ‘Kanagawa Surfing’

Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) is a Japanese artist known for his woodblock print series ‘Thirty-six Views of Fuyue. The work has always been regarded as a classic, because this is the first time that the concept of perspective from Western painting has been incorporated into the theme of Japanese art tradition. This series includes ‘Kanagawa Surfing,’ which makes Katsushika Hokusai famous not only in Japan but also around the world. To figure out this work, careful planning must be done to obtain the required colors and the tiniest elements that produce wave motion and foam splashes, otherwise the watch will lose all the characteristics and power of the work. To reproduce such a calm sky, it is difficult to avoid any single touch. Therefore, this work presents the difficulties of the two previous creations-it needs both the fineness of a stippling and the grandeur of Xu Beihong’s large paintings. Fortunately, the painter finally completed this difficult task.
