The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso is turning 85 this year, and as a commemoration, Jaeger-LeCoultre unveils new models in both the Reverso Classic and Tribute collections.
Since 1931, the year the Reverso watch was created, the strength of its pure, almost discreet lines makes the Reverso timepiece the epitome of elegance, and elicits the same wonderment decade after decade.
“To mark its 85th birthday, we wished to offer a new vision of the Reverso, so that each individual can immediately recognise the collection that matches their own character and the model destined to become theirs” – Daniel Riedo, CEO Daniel Riedo, CEO Jaeger-LeCoultre
Reverso Classic Collection
The Reverso Classic models are now available in small, medium and large sizes which are perfect for both men and women. Furthermore, Jaeger-Lecoultre also introduces an automatic movement on a number of models in the Reverso Classic collection, which is functional and user friendliness. All the Reverso Classic watches are water resistant to 3 bar, with black leather strap or bracelet options.
The Reverso Classic collection also introduce a new version of the dual time zone, the steel or pink gold Classic Large Duo watch. A day/night indicator appears at 6 o’clock on the brushed, guilloché front dial, while the black dial on the back, bearing large stamped hour-markers and graced with “clous de Paris” hobnail finishing, displays “home time”. Instead of the traditional 12 o’clock numeral, the Jaeger-LeCoultre anchor symbol dominates this sunburst composition that makes a striking contrast with the linear nature of the front side.
The Reverso Classic collection also unveiled a new Classic Duetto, which like the Classic Large Duo shows the time in two different locations, on two different faces. It is available in pink gold or stainless stee and in two sizes: small and medium.
Reverso Tribute Collection
The Reverso Tribute models feature the Duo concept of two independent faces complete with a day/night indicator, driven by mechanical manually-wound movements. The Reverso Tribute Duo adopts a contemporary design with stainless steel case and blue hour-markers.
Another new model is the Reverso Tribute Calendar, available in in pink gold only, which displays a complete calendar on one side, and the Reverso Duo function on the other side. This Reverso Tribute Calendar watch is driven by Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 853.
