Jaeger-LeCoultre Reinvents Its Reverso Collection at the 2016 SIHH

Tags: Art Deco, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Janek Deleskiewicz, Reverso Classic, Reverso Classic Duetto, Reverso Classic Duoface, Reverso Classic Gyrotourbillon, SIHH, SIHH 2016, SIHH 2016, Stéphane Belmont, Swiveling case


The mythical Reverso collection from Jaeger-LeCoultre was entirely reshaped for the 85th anniversary of its introduction in 1931. The rectangular watch swivels thanks to a dedicated system within the case; this is one of the very rare models accepted and worn equally by women and men. For the SIHH 2016, Jaeger-LeCoultre worked mainly on developing dedicated automatic movements for the Reverso cases in addition to various sizes and a new category for women.

The Reverso Classic line is the purest one with cases offering a “virgin” case back perfect for custom engravings. It is also available in three sizes: S, M, and L – gender doesn’t matter anymore here. The oscillating mass of a new automatic movement developed specifically for this watch makes its revolutions inside the case. The Reverso Classic Large Duoface in particular offers a second time zone on the back of the case. In the center, the oscillating mass of the automatic caliber is also discreetly visible.

The Reverso Classic Duetto – available in S and M only – is also a double display model, but the “verso” here is also set with diamonds for ladies who want to switch to a more distinguished look at night. One important thing: the same time is displayed on each face.

Finally, a reengineered version of the Gyrotourbillon is introduced in a Reverso case. It is more compact, looking as if the spherical cage of the tourbillon is floating in weightlessness – and announcing what the next highly complex Reversos will look like. In conclusion, we can say that Jaeger-LeCoultre took advantage of the Reverso anniversary to rethink in depth how a watch collection should answer the expectations of today’s customers. Gender disappears, to be replaced by a commonly used international size system. And the technicality of the movements has also increased with more useful solutions for the user, starting with the automatic winding.

    The last one with tourbillon is a amazing piece. Everyone can put tourbillon in a watch, But not everyone can put it with this level of beauty.
