The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso is a watch that requires no introduction. Launched in 1931, the Reverso has become the quintessential Art Deco watch design, an icon of its era, and the flagship line of Jaeger-LeCoultre. More than a watch, the Reverso is a virtual institution, a cult watch, and a cultural phenomenon.
Launched in 2009, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Grand Reverseo 976 translates the classic Reverso proportions to a scale that suits modern tastes and modern wrists. The Reverso "XGT" case debuted as a platform for complications in 2002 on the Reverso Septantieme anniversary edition, but it wasn't long before collectors clamored for the larger case in an aesthetically pure time-only format.
