I have heard many a customer say, “I would love to wear a Reverso, if only it were slightly bigger.” If you have mused this thought while browsing JLC’s many fantastic Reverso designs, this is the one you were waiting for!
The Reverso was first conceived as a sport watch, in fact a polo watch. The thought in the 1920’s was how could I protect my watch from flailing mallets and 100mph hard flying balls? The answer came in a simple hinged case that let the user reverse the fragile crystal for protection. As the years progressed, the Reverso evolved.
This watch as suitable for dress wear as for casual, features a 18kt red gold case, a both white and (flip side) charcoal grey face and both a moon phase and triple month, day, date indicator. The flip side permits a second time zone and a beautiful accent in the day/night indicator, all being powered from one source and wound by one push/pull crown! Amazing mechanical design!
The larger length of nearly 50mm and 11mm tall, it means that you will not feel that you are wearing a petite watch, but rather one that was made for a man of both the indoors and out. This hand wound movement also features a 42 hour power reserve, so feel free to come back to the watch in more then a day without bother of setting it again. The index dial makes for simple reading on both sides with the charm of the double sticks at 12 o’clock that most JLC collectors find especially charming.
This watch is in excellent condition and includes the strap, buckle, box and papers.
