Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre SA, though it is more commonly known as simply Jaeger LeCoultre, is a luxury clock and watch producer that is based in Le Sentier, Switzerland. This company is a fully owned subsidiary of Richemont, the Swiss luxury group, and it has been since the year 2000. Through its inventions, movements, and patents, which there are an abundance of, Jaeger LeCoultre is one of Richemont’s top tier brands, and a very highly regarded manufacturer within the watchmaking community. In addition to this, many notable figures have been known to wear Jaeger LeCoultre wrist watches.
One of Jaeger LeCoultre’s well known pieces is the Reverso. The short and simple name of this wrist watch comes from a Latin translation meaning “I turn around.” This name is suitable due to the case’s ability to swivel and turn within its carrier. This function protects the watch glass and allows the Reverso to endure the rough and hard hits of a polo game, which is what it was originally designed and created for. The Reverso timepiece line consists of multiple models, notably including the Reverso Classic Large Duoface Small Second, the Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute, and the Reverso Tribute Small Seconds Burgundy Red. The Reverso is still being manufactured to this day.
