The Reverso is for my one of the watches that are on top of my wish list. It is 85 years ago Jaeger Le Coultre launched the first Reverso. The watch was made for one specific purpose; it had to be unbreakable. Designed for polo players that wanted to wear their watches during exercising their favourite sport; Polo. Because of the sport many of their watches didn’t survive and had broken crystals or worse. Jacques David LeCoultre took on the challenge and designed a watch that could withstand the extreme conditions of the sport.
