Jaeger-LeCoultre is a Swiss luxury watch manufacturer and is known as the watchmaker of watchmakers. The brand combines timeless designs, passion and excellent craftsmanship all combine to ensure reliability and pleasure for the wearer.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso was introduced in 1931 and inspired by the enduring Art-Deco style. It was made with a swivel case especially designed for British colonial officers in India so that their watch will remain undamaged from hard knocks sustained during their Polo games.
The Grande Taille case measures 42.2 mm tall by 26.1 mm wide, including the lugs. This nearly matches the 1.6:1 "golden ratio" of the classic Reverso case. Although small by modern standards, this case has sufficient room for shaped movements with modest functions, including calendar, second timezone, and power reserve. Not including the lugs, the case is 36 mm tall, and the inner "reversing" portion measures 30 x 26 mm.
Any Reverso model with a case measuring between 42 and 43 mm tall by 25.5 and 26.5 mm wide can properly be called a "Grande Taille" ("Large Size") model. Those with a taller case, 45 to 50 mm tall by 27 to 30 mm, are referred to as "Grande" while smaller models are called "Classique". The basic model, simply called the Reverso Grande Taille, uses the hand winding Cal. 822 with central hour and minute hands and small seconds.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Grande Taille Model 270862 features a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal that covers the front case silver dial with seconds sub-dial at 6 o'clock position and sword hands and Arabic numeral markers. A solid stainless steel caseback can be engraved and personalized. This timepiece is water resistant to 30 meters (100 feet).
