Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Grande Taille

Why We Love It

If you haven't noticed, we have a real affection for heritage-inspired modern watches around here.  I mean, if you want vintage looks with modern components, ease of service, and daily wearability, what could be better?

With that in mind we are proud to present this stunning Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Grande Taille, an absolutely spectacular contemporary timepiece with killer Art Deco looks. The Reverso, despite being generally considered a dress watch, was originally developed for polo players who didn't want to remove their watches while on the field. By flipping the patented reversible inner case on its track, the dial display of the Reverso is hidden and protected from any knocks or persiflage one might encounter whilst galloping after a ball astride a horse in a muddy field, making it a suitable sports watch for that time.

This Grande Taille variation features a steel case with characteristic Art Deco striping and is sized perfectly for just about any wrist at 26mm x 42mm. The dial features silver satin and guilloché textured elements with a subsidiary seconds register at 6:00, Arabic indices, and blued steel hands that shine brilliantly from any angle.

This particular example is in excellent condition throughout - retaining its original strap and deployant clasp and a flawless dial.

In terms of elegant design and horological prowess, this a watch that punches way above its weight class.

The Story

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.
