This beautiful and functional timepiece has a stainless steel case with the dimensions of 26 by 42 mm. The case is strapped to a sportive, stainless steel five-link bracelet. This Reverso has a manually-wound movement and dates back to 2005. It has sapphire crystal, a black dial and ‘sword hands’ and comes with the box and papers.
Jaeger-LeCoultre ReversoThe story of the Reverso started in 1931. The goal was to produce a watch that could endure a Polo match. Ever since the glass was the main problem, they needed to figure out something to protect it. The solution was simple but brilliant: a watch that you could flip over to protect it. Although, it was made in first place for the polo players, it soon became very popular for the sophisticated and prominent men. Nowadays, it is an art-deco classic with lots of varieties and a must have in the collection because it is historically one of the most important rectangular watches ever made.
