The cultural exchange between East and West has influenced art forms for millennia—and the dialogue between the two artistic traditions has inspired watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre throughout the company’s history.

Now, in its latest interpretation of Eastern tradition, the Maison honours 19th-century Japanese master Katsushika Hokusai in a new version of the iconic Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watch: the Reverso Tribute Enamel Hokusai ‘Amida Falls’.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watch was first launched in 1931 and became a classic of 20th-century design with its pioneering reversible case and sophisticated style.

The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute, released in a limited edition of ten pieces, pays homage to the art of Japanese woodblock printing. The case-back is decorated with a hand-enamelled miniature reproduction of The Amida Falls in the Far Reaches of the Kisokaidō Road, Hokusai’s best-known work from his A Tour of Waterfalls in Various Provinces, a series of eight woodblock prints created in 1833–34.
