More about Jaeger-LeCoultre:
The iconic Jaeger-LeCoultre was introduced in the 1930s as a convenient watch for polo players who wanted to protect the fragile crystal of their watches while playing. With a simple and fluid motion, the dial is cleverly concealed by its stainless steel case.
Over the years, the Reverso would become one of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s most recognizable watches. Variations of the Reverso were released to include a variety of complications including center seconds, a tourbillon, minute repeater, chronograph, time zones, and a perpetual calendar.
To celebrate the 80th birthday of the Reverso, the present example, released in 2011 is a return to the Art Deco aesthetic of the original, 1931 model.
