On Aug 31, the award ceremony of Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker was held in Palazzo del Cinema. Alberto Barbera awarded the trophy to Costa-Gavras who is such an outstanding director from France. In addition to the trophy, a special Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso fake watch with silver dial has been given to him.
The unique painted lion decorates the classic and Jaeger-LeCoultre imitation watches with blue hands perfectly, which is also an important part of the official symbol of Venice Biennale. Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker has been established in 2007, aiming to commend those filmmakers who have made outstanding contributions to the development of contemporary cinema.
As Jaeger-LeCoultre is the official partner of the film festival, we have the opportunity to appreciate many luxurious models of Jaeger-LeCoultre every year during the festival. The pattern on the case back embodies the close relationship between the perfect knockoff watches and Venice Film Festival.
