The Jaeger Reverso Through Time
The very first Reverso was crafted in 1931. Since that time, the watch has continuously evolved to reflect advancing technology and changing tastes. The reversible dial was originally manufactured with polo players in mind, effectively becoming one of the first dedicated sports watches in the world. However, the Reverso’s captivating allure and natural grace helped make it an instant classic in the most sophisticated of circles.
A true symbol of originality and innovation, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso has always been at the very forefront of the industry. Among the first watches to include the famed grandes complication, the Reverso has continuously pushed the boundaries of the horological world, combining a restrained splendor with masterful craftsmanship. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watch was also a very personal and intimate collector’s piece thanks to the tradition of inscribing the back of the dial with unique messages or intricate artworks – making exclusivity standard to any Jaeger Le Coultre Reverso.
The Reverso Reimagined
Contemporary Reverso watches have come a long way from their humble beginnings. Combining style and innovation, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Gyrotourbillion 2 in pink gold brings an intricate complication and exceptional finish to the series. Alongside the Reverso Répétition Minutes à Rideau in white gold, the Gyrotourbillion 2 sits at the very pinnacle of the JLC Reverso range. Iconic and unique, both of these watches bring stunning detail and complexity to the Reverso series.
Among the most popular models, the LeCoultre Reverso Duo fuses two separate dials in a variety of intriguing ways. The extraordinary JLC Reverso Duo reinvents this idea and offers two full size faces running on a single, mechanical movement of unparalleled precision. The more traditional Grande Reverso Duo, however, brings geometric form and a smaller second dial placed delicately within the main watch face.
Alongside these peerless examples, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic range brings watch collectors an element of sophistication and understated elegance. Simple dials screen exquisite mechanisms that stay true to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s long-standing tradition of world-class watch making. Available to buy in a variety of designs, the JLC Reverso Classic
is, quite simply, true to its name.
Finally, the Jaeger Reverso collection also features a number of slender and tasteful watches for collectors looking to buy something of true beauty. The Grande Reverso Lady
Ultra Thin, the Reverso Classic Small Duetto and the distinctive Reverso Cordonnet are among these small-size models of subtle femininity and elegance – the perfect watches for those looking to let the Jaeger-LeCoultre heritage do the talking.
