In 1931, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched a wristwatch that was destined to become a classic of 20th-century design: the Reverso. As an object that so deftly synthesised form and function, it has become one of the most immediately recognisable watches of all time, looking as fresh and modern today as when it first appeared.
For 2022, La Grande Maison introduces a new aesthetic interpretation of one of its most admired models for women, the Reverso One. Distinguished, like all Reverso models, by the strength and purity of line derived from the original Art Deco design and identified by the three straight-line gadroons that define both the upper and lower edges of the case, the new Reverso One introduces a captivating intense green colour adding new refinement to the collection.
Reverso One Green
With its elongated case – a design inspired by the very first Reverso Lady model of 1931 – and a row of grain-set diamonds defining the gadroons at the upper and lower edges of the case, Reverso One interprets femininity in a classically refined style. Finely drawn lines define the four corners of the dial, where the light and airy Arabic numerals look almost as if they have been hand-sketched.
With this deep green used for the first time on a Reverso One dial, its beautifully understated composition receives a dash of fashion and modernity. The rich glow is achieved by applying multiple layers of lacquer over a subtle sunray guilloché pattern and is complemented by silvered numerals and the cool shine of the polished steel case. As a final flourish, the new green colour of the shiny alligator strap ensures that it perfectly matches the dial.
The Reverso One has the signature swivelling mechanism unveiling a blank canvas on its case back, inviting the owner to have the watch personalised with lacquer or any engraving she may wish – a special message, a significant date, number, sign or even a bespoke design. The possibilities are as infinite to bring an idea to life as the skills of the designers and engravers at the heart of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture.
Reminiscing the beautiful colours surrounding our Manufacture in the Vallée de Joux, the new green Reverso One brings and elegant expression of femininity to the Reverso collection.
