Jaeger LeCoultre, Reverso
Case No. 467897. Fine, rectangular, stainless steel reversible wristwatch. Made circa 1940
Dial, case and movement signed, in good condition

NOTE: Envisioned by LeCoultre brand associate César de Trey, the Reverso was born as a utilitarian solution to a practical problem: polo mallets and (then) glass watch crystals were an incompatible pair.

British officers on the subcontinent related the problem to de Trey, and upon his return to Switzerland, he engaged third-generation corporate chief Jacques-David LeCoultre to create one of the industry’s first true “sports” watches.

The ultimate solution was a rotating wristwatch with a solid-steel opposite face and stunning number of fathers.
