Today I’m sharing my latest watch acquisition I made 3 days ago, please in mind that I’ve been drooling this watch for over 6 months so I might be a little biased in my review. The watch is Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso 976, a watch respected by watch connoisseur and have a historical value since 1931.
Jaeger Lecoultre is a Swiss made brand watch, the watch could be reversed to protect the glass when playing polo (by some British officer in India). Nowadays both side of the watch could be used as another time zone or simply displaying a transparent case back revealing the movement like this 976.
The accuracy of this watch is beyond COSC specification using Jaeger in house movement. The watch comes with a black crocodile strap, suitable as a dress watch or formal gathering. The butterfly clasp is nice and comforable as well.
The watch is priced at MSRP $8650 but I could get it new from AD at around $6500. Keep in mind this is a mechanical watch, so you have to wound it everyday or at least every 48 hours to keep it running.
The only drawback for me is the size of the watch which is quite large for my 6.3 inch wrist. Everything else is perfect.
