Unveiled at the 2021 Watches & Wonders trade show, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 Quadriptyque is both the most complex iteration of JLC’s flagship model ever, as well as the world’s first four-sided watch.

Opposite that, on the top side of the cradle, is the third face displaying three different types of lunar displays – a first in mechanical watchmaking. The top display is a traditional moonphase, while the bottom two allow you to track eclipses and events like supermoons, respectively.
