Description

Thank you for looking at this truly impressive powerhouse of watchmaking from the watchmakers watchmaker, Jaeger-LeCoultre.
The Reverso is JLC's corporate icon. Like the Submariner to Rolex or the Navitimer to Breitling, the Reverso is the one watch that symbolizes Jaeger-LeCoultre to the watch enthusiast fraternity.

To be honest, no amount of words would describe this watch to its full deserved status - but I would highly recommend searching YouTube for Tim Mosso's excellent attempt to showcase this heavyweight of watches. Search "Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso GranSport Chronographe Retrograde Luxury Watch Review"

And the Reverso Gran'Sport Chronographe Retrograde is a member of JLC's first family of watches. Originally designed as a solution for boisterous British polo players in India (the reverse side of the watch was shatterproof steel, not glass), today's Reverso is a double-sided platform for additional complications.

The Reverso Gran'Sport Chronographe Retrograde offers users two watches in one.

On the main dial, hours, minutes, seconds, and a jumping date provide the essential readings that owners expect of their "daily driver" watch. A helpful marche/arret indicator clarifies the operational status of the signature complication…

But rotate the famous Reverso case, and a second independent dial appears. An in-house JLC chronograph movement powers the 30-minute retrograde minutes display and radial seconds dial. Exquisite hobnail guilloche and a two-tone dial treatment express the chronograph in a fashion that is visually and functionally distinct from the civil time on the opposite face.

Jaeger-LeCoultre intended for the 1998-2006 Reverso Gran'Sport Chronographe Retrograde to be a gateway Reverso for younger luxury watch buyers who had grown up with Rolex, Omega, and Breitling sports watches. The 50m water resistance greatly surpassed the 30m of the standard dress Reverso, and full metal bracelets – 18K gold in this instance – reinforced the model’s sporting intent.

Due to limited Jaeger-LeCoutre distribution networks in their pre-Richemont (pre-2001 model year) years, the Gran'Sport line never had the exposure it required to really catch fire. The resulting rarity of these models makes them an attractive target for savvy collectors seeing future collectibles.

This Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Gran'Sport Chronographe Retrograde is not a common watch and we dont expect it to remain unsold for too long. So please dont hesitate to purchase with confidence to avoid upset.

Thank you for looking. Please get in touch with any questions. I'd love to hear from you.

Size guide for wristbands

1 | Lug width

The lug width is the width of the strap at the end that is attached to the watch. This is the interior distance between the two lugs (horn-like protrusions) on the watch casing. The strap will fit your watch only if the lug width of the watch is the same width as the strap.

2 | Buckle width

The buckle width is the width of the strap at the buckle end. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the width of the original buckle must be identical to the strap width. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.

3 | Strap length

The strap length is the combined length of the short strap side 3A (without buckle) and the long strap side 3B. For metal straps, the length of the strap including the clasp is measured in the closed position.

4 | Strap thickness

Strap thickness is the height of the strap. Many leather straps thin out towards the buckle end, or “taper”. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the strap thickness must match the height of the original buckle. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.
