Jaeger-LeCoultre's Reverso is perhaps the most recognisable rectangular watch on the market. Originally released in 1931, it was designed for polo players who needed a timepiece that could withstand the rough and tumble of the sport. The Reverso achieved this by having a unique reversible case that could be flipped over to protect the dial from damage during a game.

It was marketed to the English and European aristocracy, who would often engrave their coat of arms or personal monograms on the reverse of the case. King Edward VIII had his Royal Crest on his Reverso, while Amelia Earhart's watch had a flightpath between the US East Coast and Mexico.

During the Second World War, the Reverso was retired due to square watches going out of fashion as well as the constraints on materials to be used for non-critical items, such as luxury wristwatches. The Reverso was re-released in 1982, after an Italian distributor discovered a trove of unused cases. Since then, the Reverso has formed the lynchpin of JLC's collection.

The Gran Sport is a reimaging of the Reverso as a modern sports watch, with a steel bracelet and chronograph on the reverse.


Jaeger-LeCoultre, also known as JLC, has a rightfully-deserved reputation as the 'watchmaker's watchmaker'. This stems from the fact that in its over 180 years of existence, the company has over 1,200 movements and 400 patents to its name. Even today, many watches still utilise JLC base movements, including the Audemars Piguet 15202.

This watchmaking expertise doesn't mean that the company is limited to making movements for others, however. The brand has also released its fair share of iconic watches, including the Reverso and Memovox.
