Description

Like many watch enthusiasts I have been a fan of the Reverso family since my watch obsession began. The Art Deco inspired case coupled with practical functionality, combine to create an enduring classic that is impossible to look past. Developed in the early 1930’s at the request of Polo players, the Reverso is widely considered to be the first sport watch. The idea was to develop a watch that could withstand the abuse a Polo match would produce. From this request was born a watch that could be flipped over within its case to protect the crystal and dial from damage. In the past 85 years the Reverso has seen several permutations but the watch at hand, the Reverso Grande Sun Moon is possibly one of the most engaging. Encased within the 29.5mm x 46..5mm, 18kt rose gold case is fitted a silvered guilloché dial, presenting one of the most fascinating complications from this manufacture that includes a moon phase indicator at 5, a day/night display at 2 and a power reserve indicator between 10 and 11 o’clock. To make this watch even more fascinating, the reverse side comes with a display back to showcase the manual-wound Jaeger-LeCoultre calibre 873 that features duo spring barrels and 25 jewels which provides eight full days of power reserve when fully wound. The calibre is beautifully decorated with Côtes de Genève, blue lettering, blued screws and blue stars that are subtly interconnected with the rubies and the screws to create an imaginary constellation. On the wrist this watch is pleasure to wear. Upon slipping this stunning timepiece on your wrist you will feel instantly connected to the dignified and somewhat opulent history of the entire Reverso family. This watch comes with a box
