Reverso Grande Date – The Classic Men’s Watch
The story of the Reverso is unlike any other. Conceived on the polo fields of India, the original Reverso was created to protect the watch crystal during the fast-paced game. Its inspirational form soon exceeded its raison d’être and it came to symbolize the spirit of the Art Deco era. A triumph of design and engineering born from a legacy of matchless expertise in horology, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Grande Date is the physical embodiment of this proud lineage.
A superb balance of engineering and design, the Reverso Grande Date is for the sophisticated entrepreneur, a captain of industry with a refined appreciation of both form and function.
Superb Form and Function: Reverso Grande Date
Reimagined for the modern man, the dimensions of the Reverso Grande Date are confident yet measured. The rectangular form and strong linear gadroons on the bezel connect it with geometric designs favored by the industrialists of the Art Deco movement - reaffirming the origins of the Reverso Grande Date at the beginning of modernity. Designed to fit comfortably against the wrist whilst retaining its integrity, the Reverso Grande Date complements its owner in a way no other watch can.
The innovation of the original Reverso was the patented swivel mechanism that allows the wearer to flip the watch face, concealing it from damage. The Reverso Grande Date pays tribute, not only to the ingenuity of the original Reverso, but also to Jaeger-LeCoultre
as masters of horology.
The reverse side of the JLC Reverso Grande Date showcases the internal movement, allowing the wearer to absorb the remarkable details inside. The 875 is a robust house-made caliber that fulfills the assertive proportions of this distinctive timepiece. An undeniable feat of horological engineering, the 875 uses dual barrels to power the Reverso Grande Date for eight days. One of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s most impressive movements, it captures perfectly the essence of progression that defines the Reverso Grande Date.
Placing craftsmanship above all else, the Reverso Grande Date is a manually wound timepiece, equipped with three distinct complications. A day power reserve indicator, a subsidiary seconds dial, and a large two disk date display that serves to indicate the enduring status of Jaeger-LeCoultre.
Reverso Grande Date – Tried and Tested for Success
1000 hours of control is the final step for all Jaeger-LeCoultre timepieces. The movement of the JLC Grande Date is tested by Jaeger-LeCoultre under the most exacting conditions, more intense than those imposed by the Bureaux du Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres. It is this hallmark of quality that distinguishes a Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece from all others. This can be seen on the back of the movement of the Reverso Grande Date, beneath the scratch-proof sapphire crystal, asserting its title as one of the most well-crafted and reliable timepieces in the world.
