Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Watch - Classicism in Form of Simplicity

Dec 03, 2010
The concept of the Reverso model was originally developed in India in 1931 to meet English polo players’ need for an unbreakable watch.

Set in a reversible case, the elegant timepiece managed to survive the harsh trials of the competition. Moreover, the lucky owner could personalize it by engraving his initials, family crest or some motto on the dial-protecting shield.

Today, almost 80 years later, Jaeger-LeCoultre is happy to bring forth its new Grande Reverso Ultra Thin watch, which pays tribute to the famous edition of 1931. The appealing novelty strikes the eye with its slender case, which appearance exudes classical simplicity.

The new Jaeger-LeCoultre watch has been released in two case versions: steel and 18-carat pink gold. Dimensionally, it stands 46 mm in height and has a width of 27.5 mm as well as a thickness of 7.2 mm. The timepiece in question provides a “1000 Hours Control” indication, presented on its back. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 3 bars.

The interior life of the model is represented by a just 2.94 mm thick manufactory-made mechanical hand-wound movement - Calibre 822. Crafted, assembled and embellished by hand, it boasts 21 jewels. Composed of 134 parts, the movement runs at the rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour and supplies a 45-hour power reserve.

The caliber 822 brings to life the basic functions of hours and minutes. For the new Grande Reverso Ultra Thin watch the brand’s specialists have chosen a guilloche silvered dial, completed with stamped numerals and/or hour-markers.

The audience will also enjoy limited-edition models. They come equipped either with a black dial with white hour-markers or a silvered dial with golden numerals and hour-markers. Both interpretations are equipped with dagger-shaped hands.

A harmonious union of technique, strength and elegance, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre watch is delivered on a black alligator leather strap, finalized by a pin buckle.
