The Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso is probably one of the most iconic watches around. So it’s time to browse through the new Reverso Virtual Museum, which offers a nice opportunity to flip through the Reverso’s history and admire both old and recent models.
Of course browsing through Reverso history was most interesting. I had no idea that the Reverso Grande Date I used to own, was initially launched in 2003 and it’s still in the collection. It’s magnificent that Jaeger created watches that stay fashionable for such a long period.
The recently launched Grande Reverso Ultra Thin is also proof of the timeless beauty of the Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso.
The Reverso Virtual Museum can be entered via the Jaeger LeCoultre website. One minor point of criticism, my Macbook doesn’t like the virtual museum as much as I do, because it’s all made in flash (edit: it’s not available anymore).
As I went through the years and saw beautiful Reverso models, one really stood out of the already beautiful crowd. A limited edition Revero Art Deco from the year 2000. Usually I’m not crazy about salmon dials, but this one is just gorgeous. Maybe it’s because it has a beautiful guilloche finish, like the salmon color guilloche dial of the Roger Dubuis Hommage Mono-poussoir I blogged about last year.
The Reverso Art Deco has a massive silver, guilloche decorated, dial with applied hour markers. The hand wound movement, caliber 822 AD, has been decorated with grain d’orge. And what is really special about it… this was the first Reverso showing the movement through a sapphire crystal case back! Not a bad way to start showing the movement.
Have fun browsing through the virtual Reverso museum! By the way, to enter the museum, you have to register at ‘Le Club’ at the Jaeger LeCoultre website.
EDIT: Le Club on the JLC website is not available anymore.
