A timepiece that brings to life a legendary story revolving around how it was created, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso was invented in 1931 in response to a challenge laid down by British officers who were stationed in India. The officers wanted a watch crafted that could withstand a polo match, something that could have the face turned around to protect the dial and face. This design was much more than just a sports watch and presented a unique elegance, an art deco inspired piece that was appealing to men and women.
The watch was timeless in so many ways, allowing for such femininity while capturing the rugged aspects that appealed to the masculine needs. In 1997 the release of the Reverso Duetto adding some precious stones to an already beautiful timepiece making it even more appealing to the female population, and then in 2006 the Reverso Squadra graced the world with such a causal urban sport watch, but with such performance and reliability. This design, a chronograph featuring a watertight seal, time zones, metal bracelets or rubber straps and a manufacture-made movement really was a masculine timepiece, but as history had shown, women loved the new square version and when the Pink Gold was crafted, certainly exquisite beauty with such versatility.
The two case sizes provided for one very feminine version and the larger size that certainly provided a sportier look and both were able to utilize the interchangeable bands, rubber with a metallic core or the leather. Sporty and sophisticated, these timepieces can move easily from day to night, and serve the lady who wants it all. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Squadra Lady Duetto Pink Gold is spectacular with the magnificent guilloche dial, sleek and slender numbers, with a date display integrated into the circle of the ‘6’ numeral and a center day/night disc that provides warning of the dawn. Then on the reverse, the black dial offers a sportier look, the numbers are much more assertive and sitting at the center is a disk that interlinks with the oscillating weight and rocks back and forth. This very subtle aspect showcases the horological skill that went into this timepiece without being obnoxious. With a single automatic movement this Calibre is powerful and dynamic, designed with a single rewinding mechanism that powers both sides of the watch, four hands and turns in opposite directions, a real masterpiece.
This Pink Gold version has diamonds on both sides, and can easily adapt to a metal bracelet, leather or rubber strap, whatever mood the lady might desire. The dials are as striking as the timepiece and truly allows the wrist to be just as flexible as the woman wearing it. Looking for something that offers you femininity and sport, an elegance that still reflects beauty and style, then the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Squadra Lady Duetto Pink Gold is a perfect fit for today’s woman.
