Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrates the winners of the 72th Venice International Film Festival


14 September 2015

On the closing night of the festival, Jaeger-LeCoultre presented its iconic Reverso watch to Lorenzo Vigas, Golden Lion winner for the Best Film, as well as to Valeria Golino, Coppa Volpi winner for Best Actress, and Fabrice Luchini, Coppa Volpi winner for Best Actor.

In 2015, the year that marks the 10th anniversary of its presence at the Mostra, Jaeger- LeCoultre has created a special design that turns each watch into a memorable object creating an emotional link with the person who wears it. Each Reverso watch bears the inscription “72. Mostra” and is adorned with a lacquered engraving depicting a lion, the symbol of Venice; a sparkling diamond is set above the engraving to highlight the precious moment in time.

One day he meets Elder, a 17 years boy, the leader of a criminal gang, and that encounter changes their lives forever. Director Lorenzo Vigas in the Jaeger-LeCoultre lounge during the Film Festival.
