Initially the “reserve” side of the Reverso case was completely manufactured from metal for the dial of the timepiece on the player’s wrist to be protected in the process of Polo games.
Later on, Jaeger-LeCoultre came up with an idea of putting a watch face on both sides of the case, and the fad was born.
Two interpretations of this timepiece will be offered in a limited series of 500 items sculptured in pink gold and 1,500 items made of steel. The case features the dimensions of 31.3mm x 52mm, width and height indicated respectively. In accordance with Jaeger-LeCoultre classification, it is regarded to be “grande”.
The silvered main dial exposes an attractive guilloche enraving, a seconds sub-dial and a large “open” date aperture. All details are performed in the conventional Jaeger LeCoultre style.
The dial in question also demonstrates blued steel hands and Arabic numerals, which present no difficulty in terms of readability.
