Jaeger-LeCoultre - watches & reviews

In the serene setting of the Vallée de Joux, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s home offers a special sense of belonging. It is here, inspired by the magnificent landscape of the Jura Mountains and guided by an unquenchable thirst for innovation and creativity, that La Grande Maison gets its soul. With all crafts brought together under one roof within the Manufacture, watchmakers, engineers, designers and masters of the decorative crafts give birth to fine watchmaking creations that combine technical ingenuity with aesthetic beauty and a distinctively understated sophistication. Known as the Watchmaker’s Watchmaker, the Manufacture has expressed its relentlessly inventive spirit through the creation of more than 1,300 different calibres since 1833 – and it was this spirit that led to the birth of the Reverso in 1931. With its sleek, Art Deco lines and unique reversible case, the Reverso became a classic of 20th-century design and is one of the most immediately recognisable watches of all time – a symbol of timeless modernity to this day.
