JLC is a major watch maker that has carved a place for itself in the watch making history since 1833. The Swiss company with French origins has several extraordinary watch models to its name. The Reverso watches with their legendary swivelling case occupy a special place among watch lovers, and have long been an icon in the world of Polo.
With a body that consists of simple geometric shapes, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Duoface Q2712510 has a contemporary design. It has two artistically different clock faces with separate dial colours. The purpose of these twin watch faces is to help you keep track of two different time zones. This is a very useful feature if you are a frequent traveller. However, the uniqueness of this watch lies in its swivelling case which allows you to choose which watch face you want to show, while effectively hiding the other one. The case measures a compact 26.1 x 42.2mm. Made of 18 carat rose gold, the watch exudes luxury. Its rectangular case has small lines engraved on both top and bottom of the case. Both dials have a seconds sub dial. One is silver coloured while the other one is black. The former has white sword shaped hands and the latter blue. These dials are protected by a scratch resistant sapphire crystal which also provides great sunlight legibility. The strap of this watch is made of leather and is fastened to the wrist using a buckle.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Duoface Q2712510 has automatic movement. This movement is shut off from the elements by the well built case. This JLC watch is waterproofed down to a depth of 30 meters. The functions of the watch include hours, minutes, seconds, a power reserve of 45 hours and a 2nd time zone.
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.
