Why We Love it

We don't often offer a watch model that is still in production - but when we do, it is for a damn good reason.  And in this case, that damn good reason can be summed up like so: Tribute to 1931 Reverso.

2011 marked the 80th Anniversary of the iconic Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso - an indisputable pillar of timepiece design as timeless as it is beautiful.  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.

80 Years later, the Reverso is a subtle statement piece available in numerous variations - but none of them has stirred the hearts of collectors the way the Tribute to 1931 has. Coupling superior vintage looks reminiscent of the original, a high grade manual-winding movement, and a universally admired design, this is a piece that will fit brilliantly into any collection.

This particular piece has seen only careful use since being sold new, and is as crisp as they come.  The market is still exceptionally hot for this model, and the current retail price is over $8000 - this is your chance to obtain an excellent example for a significant savings - don't miss it!
