Our iconic Reverso

  • Polo icone Reverso
The Reverso watch is an instantly recognisable stand-out timepiece. This iconic Art Deco timepiece is distinguished by its case that is able to slide in its cradle and swivel over completely. The reversible case was invented in 1931 to protect the watch dial, in response to the request of colonial British army officers based in India who challenged watchmakers to create a watch able to withstand the hard knocks sustained during polo matches. While remaining unswervingly faithful to its original personality, the watch has proved capable of moving with the times and of fulfilling the most varied desires, while housing a fabulous legacy of horological passion and prowess. First introduced in a man's version in 2007, the Reverso Squadra embodies the timeless values of a sport that has found its way across continents and throughout the centuries. The first Reverso to deliberately turn its back on the legendary rectangular shape in order to adopt a case featuring bold square lines, the Reverso Squadra asserts an exceptionally powerful design along with clear and useful functions for today's man who wants to travel while still keeping certain points of reference. Elegant and sturdy, refined and high on performance, it accompanies polo enthusiasts on playing fields around the world. Jaeger-LeCoultre now presents a new star model gracing the wrist of female players, the Reverso Squadra Lady. Radiating a determined and daring appearance, the Reverso Squadra Lady reflects a multi-faceted ultra-feminine universe: two faces, a quick and clever-strap change system, a classic design and the sparkle of diamonds. The models combine the signature features of the Reverso Squadra with an undeniably graceful aura of refinement reserved exclusively for women. Since the birth of the Reverso, Jaeger-LeCoultre has been consistently associated with numerous polo events around the world.
