Clive Owen and Jeremy Renner at the Jaeger Le-Coultre party, Venice Film Festival

jaeger le-coultre was one of the sponsors of the 67th venice film festival. on tuesday night, they threw a party and a few artistes were seen wearing some of their most intricate pieces. actor clive owen was one of the guests, and if i am correct he wore the jaeger le-coultre 'gyrotourbillion', which is one of their breakthrough watches in their history.

billed as a world first, the spherical tourbillon wrote a new chapter in the art of watchmaking. the amazing platinum cased and alligator strapped timepiece combined several fascinating complications: a running equation of time, a perpetual calendar equipped with four retrograde hands and it guarantees an 8-day power reserve. this is like the crown jewel of jaeger le-coultre, i think it's absolutely amazing we get to see clive owen with the watch, and not just belonging to the watch museum.

actor jeremy renner was also at the event, and was spotted with my favourite jaeger le-coultre watch, the 'reverso'. if i am correct, jeremy wore the 'reverso duo', which featured 2 watch faces (but this could also be the 'reverso classique' as the watch case is pretty thin). regardless, the 'reverso duo' is my absolute favourite as it is such a classic, and versatile enough with 2 watch faces.

the 'reverso duo' featured a single mechanical movement which powers both dials. absolutely amazing partnership between the swiss watch maker and the acclaimed film festival. i look forward to many more amazing timepieces on the venice redcarpet.
