Reverso Squadra Chronograph GMT – Contemporary Heritage
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Squadra comes from a long line of highly desirable Reverso timepieces. Originally designed with polo players in mind, the first Reverso allowed players to flip the dial for greater protection during games – the perfect protection for athletes of distinction. Since that archetypal model in 1931, the Reverso has evolved and diversified into a variety of exquisite watches for a range of different applications. The Reverso Squadra Chronograph GMT is simply one example of this highly regarded legacy.
Crafted from stainless steel and featuring silvered guilloche with black transferred numerals, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Squadra Chronograph GMT stays true to the original Reverso’s restrained style and elegant design. However, hidden beneath the casing, the 296-piece movement with 65 hour power reserve combines all of the experience and expertise gathered by JLC
throughout centuries of research and development. A contemporary timepiece of true heritage, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Squadra Chronograph GMT is the modern face of the classic sports watch.
