History
The winter of 1930 saw the birth of the Reverso, designed as an answer to the challenge set by a British army officer to Swiss watch-collector Cesar de Trey while attending a polo match at the British army officer’s club. Having broken the glass of his watch, the army officer emphatically set in motion the birth of the most uniquely styled and robust luxury wrist watch crafted in generations. Cesar de Trey contacted the then owner of the LeCoultre manufacture, who in turn recruited the French designer Rene-Alfred Chauvot, the renowned inventor of the unique slide and flip mechanism. This movement provided an innovative technology that solved the problem while simultaneously displaying an elegant watch face with a generous surface for personalization.

Design
The Grande Reverso Night and Day is dimensioned at 46.8 mm x 27.4 mm with a stainless steel case and a dial that carries a well mannered charm to its puristic design. This Jaeger-LeCoultre watch model adopts a classical unadorned Reverso silver-toned main dial with black Arabic numerals containing the slightest serif feature. The hands for the hours and minutes marker are baton-type and blued, much like the day/night pointer at 6 o’clock. The inner dial features Clous de Paris guilloche surrounded by minute markers and is divided along its centre by a horizontal line marking off the lower part of the motif, while linking numbers 6 and 18 in order to visually separate day and night time hours. A blued triangle hand in the sub dial of the night and day indicator complements the blue baton-style hour and minute hand on the main dial for an elegant finish.  A set of 28 jewels are utilized in the making of this watch.

Features
The iconic Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Night & Day is fashioned using the 967B Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre housing an automatic movement with single barrel. This exquisite time piece features a power reverse of 42 hours and boasts of beating with a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.True to its form, the Grande Reverso Night & Day displays essential functions in the most simplistic manner. The watch exhibits the hours and minutes function as well as a Day/Night indicator positioned at the 6 o'clock hour marker.

History
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.


Features
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.


Events
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.
