Jaeger-LeCoultre Reveals Its Latest Grande Reverso

At the 2014 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva (January 20 to 24), the watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced the latest addition to its renowned Grande Reverso series, the Grande Reverso Ultra Thin 1931. The new watch pays tribute to the art deco design of the original Grande Reverso, which was created at the request of polo players who wanted a way to protect their watches’ crystals during hard-hitting matches. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s solution was to design a case that allows its wearer to flip over the watch’s face, thus protecting it from impacts. The new Ultra Thin 1931 sports a rose-gold case and a chocolate-colored dial that pairs perfectly with its leather strap, which, in honor of the watch’s polo heritage, is created by the famed Argentinian polo-boot maker Casa Fagliano.
