JLC REVERSO TRIBUTE SMALL SECONDS

01_____UNFOLD THE STORY LIKE NO OTHER THE DESIGN

At the time of the birth of the Reverso in the 1930s, the watchmaking world was dominated by silver dial pocket watches. Distinguishing itself from the other watchmaking manufactures, Jaeger-LeCoultre was one of the only one to offer a watch with coloured dials.The success of coloured dials has never faded, and over the decades colour became an important feature giving character to the Reverso. In 2021, Jaeger-LeCoultre reinterprets its colours in the Reverso with a deep green dial and a coloured matching strap, without compromising the integrity of the original design. Swivelling its case allows one to unfold its own story.

03____THE HISTORY

Ninety years ago, Jaeger-LeCoultre created the Reverso, an ingenious solution for polo players who wished to protect the glass of their watches while playing matches. With its swivelling case and distinctive Art Deco lines, it became a classic of 20th-century design.Reverso has continually reinvented itself without ever compromising its identity: it has housed more than 50 different calibres, while its blank metal flip side has become a canvas for creative expression, decorated with enamel or engravings. Today, 90 years after the Reverso was born, it continues to epitomise the spirit of modernity that inspired its creation.
