Pre-SIHH 2016: Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso celebrates its 85th anniversary

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Calendar

This watchmaking icon never gets old. In fact the new Reverso looks younger than ever. This is a teaser of what you are going to be able to discover here in January when the SIHH opened its doors …

 

 

Daniel Riedo, CEO Jaeger-LeCoultre, told me: “To mark its 85th birthday, we wished to offer a new vision of the Reverso, so that each individual can immediately recognise the collection that matches their own character and the model destined to become theirs. It was about respectfully evolving this legendary watch while bearing certain key prerequisites in mind: preserving the nature of this exceptional watch that is a concentrated blend of the wealth of talent within our Manufacture, as well as safeguarding its elegance and its contemporary spirit; clarifying the collections by instating three stylistic expressions – Reverso Classic, Reverso Tribute and Reverso One – with their own distinct worlds and aspirations; structuring the classic sizes by offering three small, medium and large options; introducing an automatic movement on a number of models in the Reverso Classic line to ensure genuine user friendliness; and, finally, inviting each of you to imagine your own watch via the Atelier Reverso. Such was our mission, of which we are now delighted and proud to unveil the results.”

 

These are new Reverso models that will be presented at the SIHH in January 2016 …

  • Thank you, Alexander, for this comprehensive coverage of this teaser.

    The two “Tribute” models make me feel as if they have a definite potential to turn me into a Reverso owner…

    Or could I afford to design my own Atelier Reverso? And what will the “Reverso One” be like?

    Exciting!

  • I own reverso grande date with 8 days power reserve, reverso squara home home and Atmos clock. All of them are buttiful pieces, real mechanical watches that never will go out of style.
    However, Jeager are true manufacture, material come in and out watches,

  • JLC Reverso is a truly iconic watch, which has been popular among the watch aficionados since the 30s. There are quite a few versions of JLC Reverso that are simply awesome.

    Thanks a lot for the great XL-sized pictures that I am sure will be enjoyed by the watch aficionados immensely!
