The elegance of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso watch has not aged and continues to illustrate the know-how of the Swiss Manufacture. This iconic model has managed, since its creation in 1931, to seduce male and female customers from all over the world.

The Reverso model is a classic object of the Art Deco movement, thanks to a perfect match between sport world and esthetic refinement.

The Reverso watch keeps the precious memories of time while being faithful to modernity.

From 1948 to 2014

The Grande Reverso Ultra-Thin 1948 raises the achievements of a by-gone but eager for renewal period.

This new watch with a reversible case is a tribute to old creations, which themselves announced a period of ever more technical and esthetic performances.

Jaeger- LeCoultre designers have insisted to put the reference “Made in Switzerland” on the watch. This reference appears below the signature of Jaeger-LeCoultre, placed on the dial as on the model of 1948.

Tribute and technical performances

The dimensions of the new Grande Reverso Ultra-Thin 1948 are characterized by a very small thickness of 7.3 mm which does not influence the capacity of the mechanical movement!

The case holds a very complex mechanism, with a height of only 2.95 mm. This small surface gives to the Reverso, unique properties and emphasizes its artwork style.

The Reverso is not a timepiece like the others: it aims to transmit, share and create emotion to the holder.

As far as the movement is concerned, the Grande Reverso Ultra-Thin 1948 integrates perfectly the robust and reliable 822/2 caliber, beating at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour.

The dial is silvered and has an applied indexbatonfaceted hands to provide an optimum readability on the clear dial.

At last, a small second is placed in the lower part of the dial, to remind us that punctuality is essential to our modern life.

This watchmaking beauty (Reference Q278852J) is provided with a black alligator leather strap and a steel pin buckle.

Rush into the Jaeger-LeCoultre stores to obtain this timepiece which you will appreciate forever.
