Reverso, one of the legendary icons from the maison Jaeger LeCoultre was created in 1931. It was invented as a solution to the challenge set by British officers playing polo in India: to create a watch capable of surviving the hard knocks of a polo game.
Further than being a sports watch, the Reverso is currently one of the most iconic models in luxury watchmaking and this watch has a very special emotional bond with me personally. It is this watch where one can wrap a precious moment on the wrist. We present for our readers the most current versions introduced in the Reverso Collection: the Grande Reverso 1931 Seconde Centrale and Grande Reverso Ultra Thin1931 special edition
Grande Reverso Ultra Thin 1931 Special London Flagship edition
This Special Edition will be available in a short series of 26 pieces, exclusively at the Jaeger-LeCoultre London Flagship on 13 Old Bond Street.
