I’ve always thought of the Reverso as “the doctor’s watch” because, growing up, my doctor always had one on his wrist. It was a classic, stainless steel Reverso. Nothing ornate. But I thought it was beautiful, and from then on I’ve always equated the Reverso with success and respectability. What I wasn’t aware of is that it was, according to Jaeger-LeCoultre, a sports watch. This was in the 1990s, shortly before themaison decided to introduce complicated Reversos – watches I’m pretty certain you wouldn’t find on the wrist of most physicians. This year marks the 85th anniversary of the Reverso, so Jaeger-LeCoultre continued to release more rectangular watches with high-end complications to celebrate. I knew I had to spend a week with one of the stars of the new collection, the Reverso Tribute Calendar. Here we take a look at the evolution of the Reverso, from stainless steel sports watch to ultimate expression of luxury.
