  • Catalogue Essay

    Initially released in 1931, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso became one of the most iconic timepieces, even till date. In 2011, the firm paid its tribute to the model by releasing the Grande Reverso Ultra-Thin 1931 first with a black dial. With clean aesthetics in its traditional reversible rectangular-shaped case, the dial no longer features the manufacturer’s signature and just bears the model name above the small seconds.

    In 2014, the firm launched the same model, however with an attractive “chocolate” dial such as the present example encased in 18K pink gold. Offered in absolute brand new overall condition and presented in its factory sealed state, the present example from circa 2020 is accompanied by its full set of accessories.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1833

    Not all companies in the watchmaking field have been able to stand the test of time quite like Jaeger LeCoultre, also known as the "watchmaker's watchmaker." Founded in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre and originally named LeCoutre, the firm provided watchmaking's top brands, such as Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet, the high-grade, unfinished mechanical movements with which they completed their watches.

    In the early 1900s, Cartier's watch supplier Edmond Jaeger sought out LeCoultre's help in creating the world's thinnest watches. The collaboration resulted in the creation of Cartier's earliest Tank and Santos watches, all housed with LeCoultre movements. The duo decided to merge in 1937, and the firm officially became the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand by which collectors know and adore it today. Some of the firm's most significant and important timepieces include the Reverso, the Memovox, the Atmos clock and, among modern watches, their Master Complications.
