Jaeger-LeCoultre replica pushes on with their Métiers Rares mission with miniature enamel painting with a new fake Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Enamel featuring the art of Katsushika Hokusai – taking inspiration from his Kirifuri Waterfall.
This is an exchange that luxury fake Jaeger-LeCoultre has embraced throughout the Manufacture’s history. Coinciding with 90 years of the Reverso, Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrates this ongoing cultural exchange with an exquisite new best fake Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Enamel timepiece.
Kirifuri Waterfall (Kirifuri-no-taki)
Uniting European craftsmanship with Japanese art, the reverse side of the case celebrates Eastern art with an enamel miniature painting that faithfully reproduces a woodblock print of Kirifuri Waterfall made by Katsushika Hokusai in the early 1830s. Kirifuri Waterfall is taken from A Tour of the Waterfalls of the Provinces, a series of eight woodblock prints depicting waterfalls that the artist visited between 1831 and 1833 in different regions of Japan’s main island, Honshu.
Embodying La Grande Maison’s creativity and its vision of the world of art and culture, the new best quality replica watches are testament to the talent and skill of the artisans working in the Métiers Rares® (Rare Handcrafts) atelier within the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre replica online.
In a carefully orchestrated process beginning with the case back, the decoration of this luxury copy timepiece presented many challenges that were particular to this work of art. First among those challenges was to reproduce a work measuring 37 x 24.5 cm onto a surface little more than one-tenth the size of the original – capturing every detail in perfect scale, including the group of tiny human figures at the base of the waterfall.
To express the power and beauty of the aaa quality replica watch as it cascades 100 metres down the mountainside Hokusai used a greater sense of perspective and bolder colours for Kirifuri Waterfall than in his previous work. A particular challenge is that multi-coloured prints require the use of multiple woodblocks, with each different colour applied in turn – and there was the added challenge of reproducing the bokashi effect of subtly nuanced and graduated colours seen in the original. To achieve these illusions, high quality copy Jaeger-LeCoultre’s master
enameller had to develop her own technique.
The simplicity of the 1:1 fake Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute dial – with its faceted appliqué hour-markers and Dauphine hands– places full value on the beauty of its decoration. An artistic response to the miniature painting on the case back, this dial of cheap copy watch is decorated with an unusual, wavy guilloché pattern chosen to echo the effect of moving water. Executed by hand, using a century-old lathe for which a special cam was tooled to achieve this particular pattern, the visual effect of the waves is amplified by layers of translucent grand feu enamel in a soft shade of green that exactly matches a detail of the painting on the reverse side Jaeger-LeCoultre replica online .
As with all enamelling, the firing process can change colours in unpredictable ways, so for both the back and the front of the cheap fake Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Enamel Hokusai, many hours of research and experiment were required in order that the dial colour would perfectly match the painting on the wholesale fake Jaeger-LeCoultre reverse, and that the painting would give a faithful rendering of Hokusai’s original colours.
