As I previously mentioned the watch “Reverso” by Jaeger-LeCoultre was originally made specifically for polo players. The story goes that a polo player showed his broken watch to the watchmaker after a game of polo and the watchmaker took it upon himself to make a watch that polo players could wear during a game, without breaking it. The idea that came about was the Reverso. A watch which has a face that you actually can turn around to protect the dial of the watch while playing the game. Am I making any sense here? I’m probably not telling it all that well. Maybe Jaeger-LeCoultre can explain it better:
“At the beginning of the 1930s, the watch was born out of a challenge; designing a model that could withstand the polo matches of the British Army officers in India. Its dial smoothly concealed by reversing the case, to reveal a back that fully protects the face from possible strokes.” I feel like that explains what I’m trying to say a bit better! Today it’s one of the most iconic watches out there in my opinion. A true classic. Timeless. Beautiful. And elegant.
