Did you know how the Reverso was born?

On 1930s British Army’s Officer in India spent their spare time playing Polo. But the sport of kings is a little tough on any piece of timekeeping equipment that might be strapped to your wrist.

César De Trey, an executive of the soon-to-be-established company “Specialites Horlogeres”, which would subsequently evolve into Jaeger-LeCoultre a few years later, was in India on business in 1930. While attending a polo match, he was approached by a player who held up his broken watch and asked De Trey to make a watch that could withstand the rigors of the polo grounds.

De Trey discussed the issue with his friend Jacques-David LeCoultre and the French firm Jaeger S.A. Jaeger asked the French designer René-Alfred Chauvot to develop this particual watch. Chauvot patented a case mechanism that allowed the watch to be flipped, even when worn on the wrist. And choose a unique shape (rectangular case) with a perfect proportion, based on the so-called “golden ratio” of roughly 1.618, exactly as Patek Philippe did for the Golden Ellipse.

In 1931 an Art Deco icon was born. Over the years the Reverso has seen countless versions. However, the case has changed little over the years: it’s been enlarged and redesigned for better water resistance and mechanical performance (the current case has 50+ components vs. the original’s fewer than 30). Several movements have been used, with updates and complications added, but the basic Reverso has remained almost alarmingly unchanged since its introduction 82 years ago.
