Introducing The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One Red-Wine
New from Watches & Wonders, we have the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One Red-Wine. It’s a slim variant of the exemplary turn cased watch propelled by Reverso watches made for ladies, harking back to the 1930s. With regards to the legacy and customary style of the Reverso, this new women’s model has a plan impacted by Art Deco, the overwhelming plan development at the time the Reverso was conceived. This can be seen especially on the dial, whose Arabic numerals outlined at the corners, sunray guilloché design in red, and handset all address the 1930s birthplaces of the Reverso. I likewise imagine that the subsequent sunray design on the inward segment of the external case, uncovered just when the case is effectively being opened, is a delightful Art Deco contact and one that lone the proprietor is probably going to see.
Inside is the cal. 657, an in-house quartz development from JLC, which has since a long time ago fabricated quartz developments and at present uses them for the most part in its women’s models that require a more modest structure factor. One may contend that for a dressy watch this way, which shuns a seconds hand and has a shut back (which has been left clear for individualized etching, as an assistance offered by the production), quartz is a very intelligent decision. Frequently in men’s and other women’s Reversos, you’ll see basic hand-wound developments utilized, fundamentally to keep the internal case, which needs to fit inside the external case, from being excessively huge. Quartz offers a comparable advantage. I actually recall the main very good quality quartz development I at any point found face to face. It was from JLC, and it had a degree of beautification applied to it, as Geneva waves, that a growing youthful watch fellow of 23 didn’t know was conceivable in a quartz caliber.
But what truly makes this adaptation is its red polish guilloché dial, which is accomplished through the utilization of different layers of enamel on top of an unobtrusive guilloché design. Making dials in this manner requires a combination of dissimilar métiers and is illustrative of the sort of unendingly specific high quality work that JLC can do. A valid example: the turning, precious stone set inward case we see outlining the dial.
The Reverso is a games watch that has risen above its past on the polo fields of British India to become viewed as something truly exquisite and particular from its equestrian past. Most watch enthusiasts today would recognize it as a dress watch first. It’s additionally the JLC model that individuals who aren’t appallingly profound into watches will in general think about. (I particularly recall sitting at a hibachi eatery in Fairfield, Connecticut around ten years prior and complimenting an outsider at our table on his Reverso. He wasn’t a watch fellow, simply a money manager snatching a snappy Japanese lunch in the burbs. I discovered this reality fascinating, as I’d to that point viewed the Reverso as a specialty product.)
Point being, the Reverso is a watch with wide social reach. It’s effectively the most renowned case configuration utilized by a watch company for the most part known for what goes inside the case.
So it bodes well that Jaeger-LeCoultre would repeat on the Reverso a considerable amount. There have been endeavors to take it back a marginally more lively way, for example, with the Reverso Squadra of the aughts. There has been the Reverso Tribute to 1931, which directed the gigantic appeal of the first Reverso’s plan. With Reverso One, presently accessible with a jewel set case and a red-wine shaded dial, we have a very dressy and thin interpretation of the Reverso for women.
