Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Luxury Watches

Updated on January 3, 2013

Jaeger LeCoultre's Reverso brand of luxury watches was introduced in 1931 as a timekeeping accessory capable of withstanding the vigors of playing polo among British officers in India, before evolving itself beyond the realm of practicality and into its own world of watchmaking aesthetics. One of the few distinguishing features of a typical Reverso watch would be its reversible case, which is designed to swivel around to reveal either the watch's front or back dials to the wearer, both sides usually containing a specific set of horological functions to suit the wearer's needs, and of course, so that the Reverso's reversible case doesn't come off as gimmicky.

Below is merely a short list of Reverso luxury watches, only a small taste of its rather wide selection:

The Reverso Grande GMT

The Reverso Grande GMT's front face contains a ticker-styled date window, a smaller circular seconds dial and a day/ night semi-circle indicator with the French words for day and night inscribed around it, around a square silver guilloche dial, whereas the back dial, a black circular piece, can be adjusted to keep the time for a second time zone, a detail especially included for anyone constantly on the move, while showcasing other aspects of timekeeping such as a 24-hour indicator with the French words for day and night inscribed respectively on both halves of the sub-dial, a GMT difference indicator, and an 8-day power reserve meter indicator on the top right corner of the dial.

The casing is manufactured in stainless steel, the strap alligator leather. It should also be noted that the watch may be a tad big and would serve a major discomfort for anyone with small wrists. The watch is designed with a water resistance of 3 bar, meaning that it is restricted only to daily affairs where water contact is minimal.

The Grande Reverso Ultra Thin

As its name suggests, the Grande Reverso Ultra Thin boasts a case thickness of approximately 7 mm, showing only one functional face for timekeeping, complete with a square guilloche pattern at its centre. The watch case can be flipped over to reveal a blank face upon which personalized engravings can be made. Obviously, the Grande Reverso Ultra Thin leans more on the simplistic in design and personal customization than being a medley of horological functions.

The casing is manufactured in stainless steel, its strap alligator leather. The watch is designed with a water resistance of 3 bar, meaning that its usage is restricted only to circumstances where water contact is minimal, for instance during a drizzle.

The Reverso Squadra World Chronograph

The Reverso Squadra World Chronograph is specifically designed with anyone who can afford what little luxury around one's wrist while being on the move anywhere in the world in mind. While the front face of the watch case holds around a square dial its chronograph functions, not to mention its date and day/ night indicators, all of which are square-shaped as well, the back of the watch case stands out with its only attribute: a circular disk indicating the 24 time zones by a city, with a rotating ring as added convenience to read the time wherever you may be in the world.

The casing is manufactured in titanium, its strap alligator leather. The watch is designed with a water resistance of 5 bar, meaning that it can be used while taking a shower or swimming and no more, which would also seem reasonable, given that being constantly on the move would mean being constantly exposed to capricious climes as well.
