Given the total complexity of the hand-wound Caliber 853 triple calendar motion within and the obvious contemporary desire for bigger instances, the dimensions grows even from the Big Duoface’s 47mm by 28mm dimensions to 49.4mm tall by 30mm wide. Concerning thickness, the watch sits a reasonable 10.9mm high. Really, the delight of a Reverso such as this comes in the double faces and world class finishes. It really sits in a class of its own with no real peers, and that I have a feeling lots of people are going to drool over this watch. Even those people who, somewhat properly, believe JLC is dependent upon the Reverso to the purpose of interchangeability will agree that this view is a fantastic reason why.The 853 manifests itself in two dial executions on the Tribute Calendar — foremost with all the silver ‘front’ dial of the watch which exhibits a divide day/month aperture and a moonphase index with a pointer date surround at 6:00. It’s more information than most might be used to seeing in such a little amount of property but it remains extremely well-balanced, as a result of textbook uses of symmetry and contrast between the beveled dauphine hands, applied rose gold markers, along with the beautiful silvered texture of the dial itself. And talking of that silver dial, it acts as an antidote, counterbalancing the improved gold’s warm tones with a cold, elegant masculinity that is just a pleasure to behold — something which few rose gold watches may put claim to.Before we reverse the watch over, let me discuss the motion itself for a moment — the hand-cranking 853 hums along at a comparatively low 3 Hertz, or 21,600 vibrations per hour, even granting an energy reserve of around 45 hours. On paper, higher oscillations are always more of a joy to behold, but because there is no running seconds hand on this Reverso, there’s no visual indicator that the watch is running in a lower speed. Granted, we receive a moonphase indicator rather, so it is barely a terrible trade-off.
