Often referred to as the manufacturer's manufacturer, the history of Jaeger-LeCoultre is rich and romantic and nothing exemplifies this more than their most iconic watch model, the Reverso. Masterminded by designer Alfed Chauvot, the Reverso was Jaeger-LeCoultre's solution to the problems polo players faced on the field. Once reversed, the delicate components of the case were protected from the shocks sustained while on horseback. The first Reverso measured 38mm in length, 24 in width which is the same dimensions with the modern model we have on offer here.
Overall, this piece is in great vintage condition. The case is in good condition with some minor surface scratches around the lugs. It has not been polished and the edges of the case are still sharp. The reversible case action works flawlessly. The dial and handset are clean overall with no blemishes or discoloration. The movement was serviced back in 2016 and is currently running well at at +4.4 seconds / day. This is a one owner watch.
