The Reverso collection has been considered as fine watch-making’s rare and true icon, an inspirational watch line that was invented in the 1930’s as a result of polo players who wanted sturdier and more durable wrist watches that could survive their matches. The Reverso collection led to the inception of the dual dial system with a unique slide and flip mechanism invented by the French designer Rene-Albert Chauvot, in collaboration with Jaeger S.A and the LeCoultre firm. This elegant styling soon revolutionized luxury watch making and inspired a whole collection of such watches for the Swiss watch-makers Jaeger-LeCoultre.
The case of the Grande Reverso Duoface has been crafted using polished stainless steel with dimensions of 48.5x29.5mm and a thickness of 10.7mm. The front dial boasts of a classic guilloche black transferred numerals with silvered vertical satin-brush strokes to provide a most stunning array of hour-markers. The back dial is set on a black velvety Clous de Paris guilloche to complement the watch’s styling. The front hands are crafted as batons and the back pointers used are Eventail.
The Jaeger LeCoultre Grande Reverso Duoface Q3742521 captures the true essence of a robust watch with beautiful facets quite pleasingly. This watch features the Jaeger-LeCoultre 986 movement, a self winding single barrel mechanical movement harbouring a power reserve of 48 hours while beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. 19 jewels have gone into manufacturing this novel time piece with its myriad functions and dual dial.The Grande Reverso Duoface time piece is an exceptionally equipped model containing dual dial faces that are a simultaneous joy to the wearer for the several functions it houses. The front dial provides the basic date, hour and minute and seconds function. The reverse dial displays a second time zone, a day/night indicator and a 24 hour display, all positioned to showcase an efficient and clean watch face.
Jaeger Le-Coultre has a rich history when it comes to the Reverso, replete with well kept manufacturing secrets, dramatic successes and poignant moments. The idea for a “wristwatch which can slide on its base and flip over on itself” was birthed in 1931 at a British army officer’s club during a polo match. Watch collector Cesar de Tray was challenged by an officer who had broken his watch at the polo match. The challenge was to create a watch resilient and sturdy enough to endure a polo match. Thus was created the unique slide and flip mechanism that popularized Reverso watches and made them a sensation. A robust flipback watch with ultimate shock protection and a broad case back which could be personalized was the result. The backs of the watches usually held engravings or enamel miniatures of the customer’s choice. In 1936, a rare Reverso watch carrying an Indian Maharani’s portrait at the back became one the best kept secrets in its history.
With the popularization of round watches in the 60’s, there was a general decline in Reverso demand. However the collection made a memorable come back in 1985 with an elegant make-over along with water resistance added to its bonnet. The new Reverso could now be swivelled in any direction and ascended to the title of the most complicated case in the history of watch-making. Innumerable technical improvements and design leaps have been introduced to maintain the level of sophistication this watch portrays. An 8-day double barrel was incorporated into the Reverso on its 70th birthday providing enhanced precision with over a week’s running power. The world was introduced to the first ever watch to contain three dials driven by a single movement in the year 2006. The Reverso Grande Complication a Triptyque features a mesmerizing portrayal of the three dimensions of time: civil, perpetual and sidereal. To commemorate the 80th birthday of the Jaeger Le-Coultre Reverso line of watches, two classic models were created in the Grande Reverso Ultra Thin line as tribute to the pioneer Reverso modes. As recently as 2011, the intricate detailing of the wristwatch was again taken to astounding heights with the Reverso Repetition Minutes a Rideau model, playing on the back and front case designs for a finer appeal.
Jaeger Le-Coultre played the role of official sponsor during the 8th Abu Dhabi film festival and was presenting a personalized Reverso watch to the winners of the Best Actor and Best Actress of the Narrative Competition. Thus Jaeger Le-Coultre gifted Alexey Serebryakov, Russian film actor, an admirable engraved Reverso time-piece on his win.
