Original and rare vintage Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso, 1980`s man`s-size manual winding steel watch, in excellent condition and in proper workig order. 

This watch is most probably one of the small lot produced in the early 1970`s that re-lauched the success and the production of the Reverso watch family.

The story goes that Mr. Corvo, at the time Italy`s agent for JLC, insisted with JLC that they supply him with a small production of Reverso watches, which at the time had been discontinued since many years and that was not considered of commercial interest.

JLC assembled a small lot, just 200 timepieces using some leftover 1930`s cases and fitting them with the more more modern cal. K840 movement. (this caliber as been introduced in 1960 and is now one of the Reverso`s classic movements)

This small production was very succesful and it made JLC decide to start over a new production of what have become the “modern” Reverso watches.

The original manufacture-grade manual wind Jaeger LeCoultre Cal. K840 movement runs and keeps time. 

Watch has been professionally timed, oiled and regulated and is delivered with our 6 months guarantee

the dial is in excellent condition, with a typical 1930`s design. 

The original steel “patent” case is in very good condition, it shows almost only light traces of wear,  it measures 23 mm, without counting crown x 38,6 mm. (lugs included) case back is original and in excellent condition. And it has no engravings
