Jaeger LeCoultre’s Reverso is one of the most iconic designs in watchmaking and is often considered the definitive dress watch. For those who haven’t read up on horological history, the Reverso was originally designed in 1931 as a sports watch, albeit for one of the classiest sports. During the early 1900s, British officers in India suffered from the risk of their watch dial getting smashed during games of polo. Their watch importer brought this up with his watch maker Jacques-David LeCoultre and Edmond Jaeger, who then created a watch with reversible face. Over the years, its minimalist art deco style grew in popularity as a dress watch and established itself as a standard across the globe, for both men and women. And while designed to protect the dial, its reversible feature was used for different purposes, such as to reveal extra functions, the movement within or an additional dial to allow for two styles.

Reverso Squadra World Chrono

The Reverso has had countless versions over the years, but has always stayed true to its roots. This model one of their most modern examples with the most complex case for a Reverso, but it still retains the classic dressy look the watch is known for. It uses a bigger case measuring 52mm by 36.5mm that’s made out of ceramic and titanium. The carbon dial features a chronograph with 30-minute subdial, hour subdial, day/night indicator and big date display. Flipping the case over reveals a 24 timezone disk, where they’ve replaced some of the city names with the names of world famous polo fields. It’s fitted with an unique articulated rubber strap.

Jaeger LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin

It’s matched with a black satin strap with deployment clasp. Like the Joaillerie version, this piece works as a watch or simply a bracelet thanks to its decorated caseback.


Reverso Duetto Joaillerie

With most Reverso’s stainless steel and with one dial, this model takes it to an higher level of luxury with a 18-karat rose gold case and a second dial. One dial has a silver and mother-of-pearl dial with black arabic numerals, the other smaller dial is mother-of-pearl set with 24 diamonds. A total of 81 diamonds (0.88 carats) are used to decorate the case and dials. The case measures 20.5 by 33mm and is fitted with a matching tan crocodile leather strap. Note the second dial is purely for a second style and not a second time zone.
