Why We Love It
Its fairly safe to say that in this day and age, Jaeger-LeCoultre doesn't quite get the respect that they deserve.
That is not to say that they aren't held in high regard. But the level of innovation, craftsmanship, and design that JLC has demonstrated over the course of their existence simply cannot be understated, and certainly extends beyond just the Reverso.
This particular three-register chronograph, for example, dates to circa 1960s and is in superb condition throughout. This model features a Dauphine handset, barrel pushers, and perfect proportions for a vintage chronograph. Most interestingly, this rare watch features a dial signed only with "Jaeger" - a configuration not commonly seen, and likely indicates that it was sold in the French market. It is clean, understated, and reminiscent of some of our favorite chronographs from this era, yet stands apart as a truly special watch in its own right.
In terms of elegant design and horological prowess, this a watch that punches way above its weight class.
Don't miss it!
From its inception and on to the present day, Jaeger-LeCoultre has produced timepieces that are both timeless and perpetually-appealing. Though their quality is often dramatically underrated, JLC's present-day pieces sing to us in the same soft, alluring timbre as their vintage offerings. With understated elegance, they exude an appeal that even the most steadfast of vintage collectors can't resist.
We love JLC in part because they are a true manufacture, producing a wide range of in-house movements. With a cadre of truly iconic pieces - among them the Reverso, the Deep Sea Alarm, the Memovox, the Geophysic (both the 1958 original and the 2014 reissue), and the Mark XI, to name a few - JLC has managed to encompass both technical and aesthetic brilliance.
