In celebrating the 80th birthday of the Reverso, Jaeger-LeCoultre wished to salute femininity by unveiling a new expression of this emblematic watch: the Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin, an original timepiece expressing the very essence of the Reverso personality: a marriage of tradition and nobility, an alliance of style and elegance.
Each element in its name conveys what it represents: through its generous dimensions, this new watch intended as a tribute to its illustrious predecessor in 1931 displays reworked yet resolutely feminine proportions, while remaining a Reverso that is recognisable at first glance.
All the aesthetic codes of the Reverso are sublimated within this ultra-thin ladies’ version. The proportions of the case, the gadroons, the chapter ring, the numerals and the hands remain faithful to the Reverso spirit while proudly proclaiming their womanly charm. From the new cambered cradle or carrier to the new metal bracelet, each detail has been feminised, softened and rounded to endow this watch with a new face, a new character, and a new seduction. To ensure optimal comfort, the designers of this Reverso have made it ultra-thin (at just 7.2 mm thick), light and gently curved to mould the feminine wrist.
Women increasingly regard their watch as an essential style accessory, just like their handbag or their elegant shoes. And because each woman is unique, she looks for a unique watch… And what could be more unique that to own a personalised watch bearing initials, a drawing, or a secret symbol?
Wearing a Reverso, the legendary actor on the universal watchmaking stage, is never insignificant: it is a vivid token of attachment to fine craftsmanship, to a legend, and to extreme quality. Wearing the Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin powerfully expresses a certain vision of luxury, of glamour, and of extreme high-end watchmaking. It also embodies a taste for an independent-minded spirit of self-affirmation and of daring to be different. And finally, it pays homage to women’s most cherished dreams…
The steel or 18-carat pink gold case houses either a Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 846 mechanical movement or a Jaeger-LeCoultre quartz movement driving the hour and minute functions.
Whether fitted with a leather strap selected from a wide range of textures and colours, or with a metal bracelet, everything about the Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin conspires to make this a watch that truly reflects the image of the woman wearing it.
