Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso 1931 Ultra Thin

For those who want a solid-back Reverso in precious metal with a discreet dial, JLC created a special edition to suit such refined tastes.

In 1931 Jaeger LeCoultre created the ultimate watch for the sporting gentleman: the Reverso. The watch was every bit a dress watch that could be worn with a suit while showing the front of the dial. However, by simply flipping it over with their unique patented system, one could protect the watch for polo playing by snapping in the solid metal case back.

JLC brought back these Art Deco masterpieces with exacting attention to detail and captured both the spirit and mechanical prowess of the originals.

They captured the minimalist essence in this ultra thin model and still provided for a small seconds at 6 o'clock, contained in a small railroad marker box. The symmetry and simplicity was enhanced further by plainly presented Arabic numerals.

What's more is that JLC managed with their in-house production to provide a precious metal case in 18k white gold at a scant few thousand dollars more than the stainless steel equivalent. This is for the gentleman who is as thrifty as he is sporty!

As a special edition, this watch was made for only one year, so be quick to capture this specimen before it's lost a second time! It's not a commonly seen model, yet is as versatile to wear as it is scarce to find.
