In 2016 Jaeger-leCoultre celebrated the 85 anniversary of the Reverso watch
The history of the Reverso goes back to 1930. In that year British soldiers in India challenged Swiss businessman César de Trey to create a watch that could endure the perils of polo. So French designer René-Alfred Chauvot invented a case that flipped 180 degrees to hide the crystal. T The next year Jacques-David LeCoultre partnered with Jaeger S.A. and came up with an elegant solution to protect those fragile crystals—an ingenious timepiece whose case swiveled back-to-front so the dial would be hidden. The watch was later named the Reverso—Latin for "I turn around."
