Let $\mathscr{Y}$ be the double cover of the quintic symmetric determinantal hypersurface in $\mathbb{P}^{14}$. We consider Calabi–Yau threefolds $Y$ defined as smooth linear sections of $\mathscr{Y}$. In our previous works, we have shown that these Calabi–Yau threefolds $Y$ are naturally paired with Reye congruence Calabi–Yau threefolds $X$ by the projective duality of $\mathscr{Y}$, and observed that these Calabi–Yau threefolds have several interesting properties from the viewpoint of mirror symmetry and also projective geometry. In this paper, we prove the derived equivalence between the linear sections $Y$ of $\mathscr{Y}$ and the corresponding Reye congruences $X$.
