The Reverso One Duetto Moon by Jaeger-LeCoultre is a watch with the complication that is traditionally associated with watches for women, the moon phase display. It is made in two versions, in steel and rose gold. The lunar display is in mother-of-pearl, against a speckled backdrop in dark blue (steel version) or chestnut red (pink gold version).
The two sides are made even more different by two rows of diamonds (28 stones in total) on the moon phase side. The case is unmistakably Art Deco reflecting the earliest Reverso watches, with the style accentuated by the narrow rectangular shape. Its size is 40.1 mm x 20 mm, 10 mm thick, and it has the standard water resistance of 30 metres (3 bar). The strap is in alligator with a folding clasp. Both dial displays of the watch are driven by the same movement.
The movement is hand-wound, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 842, with 129 components and 18 jewels, running at 21,600 vibrations per hour, power reserve 38 hours.
