Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Ultra Thin : An ode to the Icon


The thing about watches is, at their basic, all are tech-proof. Most of the timepieces we know today have the same basic mechanism they have had when watches became an important accessory – an wrist-ament all well-heeled had to possess. So when Jaeger-LeCoultre decided to celebrate his own roots, there was nothing better than being inspired from one of the its own cult pieces, Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso. Created first in 1931 for colonial polo players, who feared their timepieces would become scratched while in action, the Reverso has since become a benchmark by which most rectangular watches are measured. Now in his 80th year of glory, Jaeger-LeCoultre decide to pay tribute by bringing an Ultra Thin version that mimics its older cousin completely. Inside the watch is JLC manually-wound and hand-decorated ultra-thin movement, the Caliber 822. Offered in limited and non-limited editions, Reverso will be available in steel and pink gold.
