It’s Mad Men time! In celebration of the imminent return of one of TV’s finest shows, Jaeger-LeCoultre is issuing a very, very limited edition of its classic Reverso wristwatch, first introduced in 1931, now given the modern throwback treatment as a meta-infused tribute to Don Draper’s ad agency, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. Limited to just 25 units, each Reverso will carry the firm’s logo hand-engraved on its caseback, and will come packaged in a walnut box with a letter from Roger Sterling, dated 1 February 1966.

Look for the watch’s formal release from Jaeger-LeCoultre sometime in February, and wear it with a three-piece suit from the Banana Republic x Mad Men Collection as you wait on bated breath for the show’s fifth season premiere, slated to air this March.
