Audrey Hepburn quoted, “There is a shade of red for every woman”. I don’t know about others but the red that is currently dominating my mind is the one I just saw on the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One Red-Wine. The classic swivel-cased watch by Reverso watches was first made for women back in the 1930s. It also attaches with it a story that makes it even more interesting. a British officer stationed in Jodhpur, India in the 1930s is responsible for the idea for the Reverso, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s iconic line of dual-faced watches. His watches always faced the problem of frequent damage during polo matches which resulted in the creation of an idea that no one had earlier thought of- simply turning the case over. Today Reverso watches are looked at as the most timeless creations and new from Watches & Wonders, we have the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One Red-Wine. It’s a refreshing take on a classic as it’s inspired by the very first Reverso Lady model of 1931 with an insanely attractive color and a slightly more elongated case. The polished stainless steel body is enhanced by a row of grain-set diamonds that highlight the upper and lower edges of the case while finely drawn lines define the four corners of the dial. The airy, white-colored Arabic digits look like attractive hand-sketched details that add to the overall appeal of the watch.
The beauty of the dial is achieved by applying multiple layers of lacquer over a subtle sunray guilloché pattern which renders an unmissable glow. The case measures 40 mm x 20 mm x 7.9 mm and is a quartz Jaeger-LeCoultre caliber 657. A complimenting red-wine shiny alligator strap seals the deals and the watch sells for $5,300.
