Originally designed for professional polo players, the Reverso
allowed for increased protection thanks to its reversible dial – essentially becoming the first dedicated sports watch ever manufactured. From this fundamental idea, the Reverso evolved and matured to become a truly classic timepiece desired by collectors the world over. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Duo takes this blueprint but includes two sublime watch faces rather than the traditional singular dial.
In essence, Jaeger-LeCoultre developed the Grande Reverso Duoface to continue the legacy of the iconic original – crafting a contemporary watch that borrows from its celebrated archetype. Featuring the same Art Deco aesthetic that made it so popular back in the 1930s, the Jaeger Grande Reverso Duo combines exquisite style and sophisticated functionality in one alluring and fascinating package.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Duoface – An Unparalleled Caliber
The Grande Reverso Duo contains a single Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 986 that features 183 intricately manufactured parts. Hand-wound to run at 28800 vibrations per hour and featuring 19 jewels and one barrel, the Grande Reverso Duoface is breathtakingly accurate. Furthermore, a 48-hour power reserve ensures uninterrupted operation whilst the water-resistant casing guarantees full protection from the elements.
The front of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Duoface displays date, hour, minute, and second on its silvered vertical satin-brushed and guilloche dial. Bâton hands move effortlessly around the black transferred numerals to display the time of your default location. Flipping the Grande Reverso Duo around reveals a velvety black Clous de Paris guilloche dial with Eventail hands that display a second time zone with 24-hour display and a day/night indicator.
The effortless movement found within the Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Duo comes packaged with either a stainless steel or pink gold casing that measures 48.5 x 29.5mm with a thickness of 10.7mm. Finished with a refined alligator leather strap and either a 20.0 mm pin buckle or a 20.0 mm double folding buckle, the Grande Reverso Duo is the epitome of a dignified and stylish watch design.
