The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso is one of the most interesting and inventive watch designs ever made. The development of the Reverso is also what spurred the partnership between the watch manufacturer LeCoultre and the firm Jaeger S.A. to form Jaeger-LeCoultre (JLC).
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso history begins in the 1930s. During that time, a group of British Army officers stationed in India enjoyed playing polo in their downtime. The sport is somewhat brutal and aggressive, from powerful mallets to hard polo balls. Any player who left their watch on during a match found it destroyed. So, they approached a local watch dealer named Cesar De Trey about designing a watch that could hold up to the sport. In turn, De Trey enlisted the help of Jacques-David LeCoultre and the firm Jaeger S.A. to fulfill the request.
