Swiss luxury watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre and Kim Woo-bin are celebrating The Sound Maker exhibition, which will be held in Seoul this summer. The South Korean actor, who recently returned to the limelight after a hiatus following his treatment and recovery from nasopharyngeal cancer, is also a new home ambassador and has been pictured wearing the watchmaker’s Reverso Tribute Nonantième.
The Reverso is a watch which, despite its many variations since its launch in 1931, remains completely timeless. This latest edition of Jaeger-LeCoultre was unveiled on the occasion of the collection’s 90th anniversary. Thanks to its refined silhouette and its folding case, this timepiece perfectly combines JaegerLeCoultre’s past with its present.
The front dial of the Nonantième is elegant and traditional with a sunbrushed silver dial, applied gold indexes and Dauphine hands. A delicate moon phase is detailed in a small seconds display for added beauty. But flip the case over and you have a completely different look: a digital semi-jumping hour is semi-integrated with an incredibly minimal day-night indication.
“I am very happy to be a Friend of Jaeger-LeCoultre, with a long history of 188 years and great watchmaking expertise. I look forward to the new journey with Jaeger-LeCoultre, ”says Kim.
