Today’s watch is a wonderful travel companion, a versatile and elegant accessory, and a true classic: The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Duo. This was my first high-end watch and cemented in me a love for Jaeger-LeCoultre.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso is one of the most iconic watches of all time, especially among enthusiasts. The classic Reverso had a “flip over face” to protect the crystal on the polo grounds, making it one of the earliest “sports watches”, albeit for noble gentlemen. Even today, flipping over the face of a Reverso is a “wow” moment for everyone who witnesses it!
