Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic Large Duoface
Originally founded in 1833, Jaeger-LeCoultre has earned a unique renown in the Swiss watchmaking industry due to its distinctive aptitude and constantly evolving sense of innovation. Its watches demonstrate an elite sense of precision and reliability, as every step of creation is completed within its own Grande Maison. Each timepiece crafted by a Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmaker is imparted with a level of technical perfection that is rivalled only by its impeccable design standards.
One of the most distinctive timepieces from Jaeger-LeCoultre, the Reverso is the result of a legendary origin story involving British Army Officers’ need for a watch that can withstand a challenge. The name of this timepiece comes from its innovative reversing case, which the Grande Maison created in the 1930s to offer the British Army Officers a watch that was at the same time elegant and durable. When turned, the case either reveals an alternative watch face or a beautiful, protective cover. The Reverso has since evolved into an icon of both style and watchmaking ingenuity.
The elegant and refined steel Reverso Classic Large Duoface exerts its charm through two dials and two time zones, driven by a single automatic movement. On the front of the watch, the dial displays the Reverso's emblematic features: Arabic numerals, baton-shaped hands, "railtrack" minute circle, and an elegant day/night indicator that tells whether it is day-time or night-time in the country of reference. On the back of the watch, the reference time is presented on a black dial with a "Clous de Paris" finish, against which the large hour markers stand out and are arranged in the shape of the sun's rays.
The Reverso comes in its full set, box, papers and manual. It is fitted on a grainé calf strap but the original Jaeger-LeCoultre alligator strap is unworn and included as well.
