Jaeger-LeCoultre - Reverso

All Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watches exhibit elements of Art Deco design with their angular case shape and unique functionality.

Introduced in 1931, this iconic timepiece was created as a result of a request from British Army officers in India. During strenuous polo matches, the soft plexi-glass used at the time on most watches was easily damaged during play. An ingenious mechanism was developed to allow wearers to revolve the watch head in a carriage, thus leaving a metal case back uppermost to bear the brunt of any impact.

And so an icon was born.
