Luxury watch brand Jaeger-LeCoultre has gotten quite a bit of mileage out of their famous double-sided Reverso watch. They recently held a party in New York to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Reverso. They've upped the ante with a three-sided version, the Reverso Triptyque, which made its U.S. debut at the party. The watch costs around $375,000 and has a tourbillon on its front face and a zodiacal calendar with an astronomical chart, an equation of time and sunrise and sunset times on the back face. The third face has a perpetual calendar in the Reverso carriage. Overall the watch has 18 complications, and has six patents pending.
