While the earliest incarnations of this Reverso had only 1 dial side, enabling the wearer to flip the eye face crystal side-down to protect it from errant polo mallet strikes, the more modern Reverso provides two watches in one. Flip this Tribute Calendar dial above, and we’re treated with a somewhat neater rounded time screen set against a black hobnail (or Clous de Paris) dial that has been finished with a clever day/night index at 6:00. Not merely is the next dial a starkly distinct wearing experience on the wrist, but it’s also an entirely separate complication, distinctively useful to the wearer because of its own way.An facet of almost any Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso that has propelled the eye into legendary status is the fact that there is actually no other opinion like it. This has resulted in a perception of preponderance with a lot of critics who discover that JLC and Reverso are essentially one and the same, to the negligence of some other genuinely incredible pieces by the brand new. That could be so, but I am also of the mindset which JLC is constantly improving on the Reverso while releasing some truly stellar watches differently.
