Description

The iconic design of the Jaeger LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin harkens back to the 1930s when polo players complained of their timepiece crystals being damaged or broken while playing. Jaeger LeCoultre came up with the idea and subsequently patented the Reverso design, to flip the watch face to a solid back, to protect the crystal. With a case thickness measuring only 7mm, the Grande Reverso Ultra Thin is a beautiful dress watch that wears comfortably on the wrist.

The History:

Jaeger LeCoultre began its start in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre, in Le Sentier Switzerland. Antoine had invented a machine to cut watch pinions and later developed what was considered to be the world's most accurate measuring instrument, the Millionométre. In 1903, a challenge was introduced to Swiss watchmakers by Edmond Jaeger, to successfully produce an ultra-thin movement, designed by Jaeger. Antoine LeCoultre’s grandson accepted that challenge, and in 1907, produced the thinnest pocket watch movement, which lead to the eventual founding of Jaeger LeCoultre.

The Watch:

The Jaeger LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Ref 277.8.62 has a stainless steel case and is powered by a manual wind Calibre 822 movement with a 45-hour power reserve. The case measures 46 mm long by 27 mm wide and has a case thickness of 7 mm. The Grande Reverso Ultra Thin has a sapphire crystal over the dial side of the case, as well as a solid stainless back when flipped to the reverse side. The case back has the Jaeger LeCoultre text and logo etched in, as well as the reference and serial numbers of the timepiece. The dial is white, with a step-down minute track, as well as blued hour and minute hands.

The Details:

This Jaeger LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Ref 277.8.62 is in good condition, with some wear markings on the case sides, case back and the reverse solid side of the case, which are visible in the photos. The original Jaeger LeCoultre black alligator leather strap is in very good condition, as is the stainless steel JLC tang-style buckle.
