Personalising their very own Reverso is a unique way for owners to adopt their watch. For the 85th birthday of its icon model, Jaeger-LeCoultre has invited polo ambassador Clare Milford Haven, with whom it has been cultivating close ties since 2004, to imagine a model attuned to her tastes.
The renowned polo player has chosen as a timekeeping companion the Reverso Classic Duetto Medium in pink gold which – above and beyond its Art Deco inspiration – features a second face on the back in the shape of a dial providing space for personalisation. To mark the start of the polo season in the United Kingdom and of the thrilling Jaeger-LeCoultre Gold Cup, Clare Mountbatten, Marchioness of Milford Haven, shares with us a glimpse of this Reverso watch that she has dreamed up and which reflects her own elegant and refined nature.
Details that Reflect the Owner
When a finger gently pivots the case, the watch appears in a whole new light, revealing a more sophisticated facet of its personality. At the heart of the blue dial adorned with paillons (spangles), as deep as a star-studded sky, the night blue oscillating weight can be admired in action. Two rows of diamonds magnify this face evoking the celestial vault. A journey to the heart of the stars which Clare Milford Haven, a keen nature-lover, particularly enjoys observing.
Family History Engraved on Your Timepiece
Clare wished to have the carrier of the watch engraved with her family crest, symbolised by a crown, the initials of her children’s first names, as well as two polo mallets. It thereby vividly evokes the two central elements around which her life revolves: her family and the sport to which she is passionately dedicated.
Finally, setting the perfect final touch to this highly personal model, a night blue calfskin strap is fitted with a strap reminiscent of polo players’ boots and making a perfect match with the pink gold case and the two faces of the Reverso. http://www.jaeger-lecoultre.com/
