Invented in the 1930s to meet the needs of Polo players who needed a smash proof watch, the Reverso watches are now legendary for their swivelling case. The watch has been worn by some illustrious individuals such as King Edward VIII of England, who wore a Reverso engraved with his crown and title, and the famous woman pilot Amelia Earhart, had an enamelled map of North and Central America on her Reverso.
The Jaeger LeCoultre Grande Reverso 1931 Q2783520 has pure geometric lines inspired by the Art Deco theme, which was prevalent when Reverso watches first came into existence. Its case is rectangular, which is demanded by the trademark swivel function of Reverso watches. Made from white gold, this premium case measure 46.8x27.4mm and is merely 7.3mm thick. There are subtle lines above and below the case that add interesting elements to the design. It has a silver dial with simple black dial markers and baton type hands. You can find a sub dial which shows seconds at 6 o’clock position. Protected by scratch resistant sapphire crystal, the watch retains its looks for a very long time. This glass also provides great visibility under sunlight. There are 21 jewels embedded in this classic timepiece. This iconic watch has its bracelet made of black alligator leather that offers wearing comfort. It can be fastened to your wrist with a pin buckle that measures 18mm.
The Jaeger LeCoultre Grande Reverso 1931 Q2783520 features hand wound Calibre 822 movement with a power reserve of up to 45 hours. This watch has the basic hour and minutes functions. Once the case is swivelled, it offers a plain surface on which engravings can be made. The tight construction of the watch also means that it is waterproof down to a depth of 30 metres.
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.
