Jaeger-LeCoultre Katsushika Hokusa

For their latest limited edition, Jaeger-LeCoultre brings the work of Katsushika Hokusai to the Reverso. The caseback of the watch features an enamel miniature painting that is a detailed reproduction of a woodblock print created by Hokusai in the early 1830s. 1/10th the size of the original piece, every element of the painting was captured and scaled down to fit the watch and required Jaeger-LeCoultre's master enameller to create her own technique in order to recreate the bokashi gradation effect of the original. The dial has also been finished with a wavy guilloché pattern to mimic the look of moving water, a pattern that was created by hand with a century-old lathe. 

The Reverso Tribute Enamel Hokusai is limited to ten pieces.
