Seventeen years ago, Bruce Wayne first put on a Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso (so did star Val Kilmer, director Joel Schumacher, and 16 other peeps). In this weekend's blockbuster finale to Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy, the billionaire Bruce Wayne (now played by Christian Bale) also wears a Reverso.
To celebrate this, JLC has made a limited edition Reverso Tribute To 1931 with a special engraved Bat logo on the caseback. Filled with black lacquer and visible only when the case is "flipped," this watch pays tribute to the original Reverso worn by Kilmer. In fact, both this watch and the original will be on display in JLC's Geneva, London, Los Angeles, and Hong-Kong boutiques.
No word on whether this watch will be produced commercially, like the Reverso for AMC's Mad Men.
