The wristwatch showcased in today's offering likely needs no introduction... Named the Reverso because of the way the case swivels to expose either the dial or the case, the watch's innovation and design have landed it among collectors as one of the most recognizable wristwatches Jaeger-LeCoultre has ever made.
Born from the need for a watch rugged enough to survive the rigors of a polo match without damage, the Reverso embodies form in the service of function. It features a very clever "gadrooned" case, suggestive of the Art Deco style so popular during the 1930's.
Here are some of the watch's features:
- Very elegant case with simple, sophisticated, and harmonious proportions, embodying a revival of classic and refined Art Deco style
- The case swivels to reveal a polished back that may be personalized with a timeless engraving. The back on this watch features a bird with space above and below for more personalization.
- Very pleasing two-tone silver dial. The photos couldn't capture the way the tone shifts at different angles.
- Solid 18K gold construction
- Jaeger-LeCoultre Swiss quartz movement
We are proud to offer this all original Reverso Classique in beautiful condition. Its parts are 100% authentic down to the case, dial, hands, movement, and heavy 18K gold deployment buckle. Only the strap has ever been replaced.
Our Master Watchmaker has performed any needed servicing and installed a new battery.
For the finishing touch we have meticulously detailed it and installed a leather strap.
It presents as just short of mint with light signs of polishing to the back. On the wrist it presents as mint. Accompanying it are its JLC papers and booklets and inner and outer boxes in excellent condition.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function.
