This month,Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced a new watch for SIHH 2016-Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic is certainly the most classical, timeless edition of the collection.
For the 85th anniversary of this model, the Jaeger-LeCoultre manufacture offers a facelift and some technical improvements. Previously, this Reverso Classic was available with a plain dial and a manual movement. The SIHH 2016 editions of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic now feature an automatic movement, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 965 that offers 38 hours of power reserve – and the daily benefit of not having to wind your watch. However, even if automatic , it still remains thin at 4.02mm. It simply displays the hours and minutes.
The design of this Reverso Classic also undergoes some slight evolutions. First, it is now available in 3 sizes.It looks small but with a quartz movement, medium and large , both with the automatic movement. The art-deco style is always present, with this rectangular case, the gadroons, the straight Arabic numerals and the specific minute track.
However, Jaeger-LeCoultre emphasizes this antique feel with a textured dial, with a guilloché centre and a vertical-brushed exterior. The back of the case is plain, to leave some space for a personalized engraving.
