At SIHH 2014, Jaeger-LeCoultre will present the latest version of the Grande Reverso Ultra Thin 1931, this time with a chocolate dial and pink gold case, fitted on a cordovan strap made by polo equipment maker Casa Fagliano.
The Grande Reverso Ultra Thin 1931 has been a great success for Jaeger-LeCoultre. The case form has been adapted to multiple models, from the red dial Reverso Rouge to the Ultra Thin Skeleton, and more recently the Duoface. The latest model to join the family is the Grande Reverso Ultra Thin 1931 chocolate, fitted with a chocolate dial and faux aged Luminova to give it a vintage-ish look. Inspired by a vintage Reverso with a brown dial – looking that way due to age, rather than being manufactured in brown – the Grande Reverso Ultra Thin 1931 chocolate has a pink gold case in the standard 1931 dimensions. Measuring 46.8 mm by 27.4 mm, and standing 7.3 mm high, the case is large but elegant in proportions.
Thanks to its tie-up with Argentinian polo boot maker Casa Fagliano, the Reverso is supplied with two straps, one in brown alligator (probably made by Camille Fournet) and another in richly coloured cordovan made by Casa Fagliano. Cordovan is a resilient, oily leather made from a membrane just under the skin on the rear of a horse favoured used in shoes and polo boots. The Grande Reverso 1931 chocolate will retail for €12,700 before taxes, which is about US$17,300. – SJX Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates and news.
