Vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso, 1933.
If there were an exceptional horological Academy Award for the most inexhaustibly rich wellspring of plan motivation in a wristwatch ever it might well go to the Reverso. In differing manifestations, it has been a vehicle for everything from high complications to double time region watches (for which application it is a characteristic) to probably the most flawlessly enlivened or engraved watches at any point made. Had of both an extremely peculiar personality, and surprising adaptability, it’s the single watch most powerfully connected with Jaeger-LeCoultre and presumably will be for the predictable future.
Now, we should have a glance at the new models.
First, Jaeger-LeCoultre Classic Reverso watches are now accessible in three distinct sizes (Small, Medium, and Large, instinctively enough) with no sub-seconds register. The outcome is an exceptionally spotless and, well, Classic variant of the Reverso; the Small model is powered by a quartz Jaeger-LeCoultre type 657, and the Medium and Large models with something new in the Reverso family: oneself winding type 965 (the Reverso is for the most part connected with hand-wound developments, which helps hold the case back from becoming unmanageably thick; in this case however JLC’s built up a development thin enough to suit the Reverso’s case-in addition to transporter development).

Jaeger-LeCoultre is likewise presenting a new form of the double time region Classic Duo, in a Large model in either pink gold, or tempered steel as it were. These are quite fantastic, we think – the case is 47 mm x 28.3 mm x 11.6 mm, and as has always been the situation with this complication for Jaeger, they’re just about ideal as an exquisite travel watch that doesn’t force the greater instrument-watch feel of most double time region/GMT watches. The development is type 969, with a 38-hour power reserve.
There is additionally a new Classic Duetto, which like the Classic Large Duo shows the time in two unique areas, on two distinct appearances. The Classic Duettos are hand wound, in either pink gold or treated steel; cases are 34.2 ‘mm x 21 mm x 8.7 mm.
The Tribute Collection has gotten an update also as the Reverso Tribute Duo; this will be offered in treated steel as it were. Case measurements will be a genuinely enormous 42.8 mm x 25.5 mm x 9.15 mm; hours, minutes, and little seconds are shown on the front; the back has a subsequent time-region show and a day/night marker. The development is Jaeger-LeCoultre’s hand-wound type 854A/2, with a 45-hour power reserve.
Finally, Jaeger-LeCoultre will likewise be launching the Reverso Tribute Calendar. The name is really less complex than the watch; the Tribute Calendar has, on the front, the time in addition to the day, month, date, and moonphase; the back shows the time in a subsequent time-region, and too has a day-night sign. It’s being declared at launch in pink gold just, in a 49.4 mm x 29.9 mm x 12.06 mm case.
