-Description

Jaeger-LeCoultre was founded in 1833 in the Joux Valley in Switzerland, known as the 'Valley of Complicated Watches'.

Jaeger-LeCoultre is known as a "true manufacture", producing and assembling all components in its own workshops, known as "Grande Maison".

Jaeger-LeCoultre has a history of supplying movements to Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and Cartier, and its technology stands out amongst other watch manufacturers.

Reverso is a Jaeger-LeCoultre's flagship watch, was first created in 1931.

It is characterised by its design, which incorporates elements of the Art Deco style popular at the time, and by its inverted case.

This unique case was created after a British officer stationed in India asked Reverso to develop a wristwatch that could withstand the shocks of a polo match.

When inverted, the caseback appeared on the front, protecting the dial from blows from sticks.

This Ref 270.6.49 is the Number One model, which was sold from around 2001.

The case was made of platinum, a first for the Reverso, and was sold in a limited edition of 500 pieces.

The case design is rectangular with a geometric design with decorations on the top and bottom, clearly inspired by Art Deco.

The skeletonised design on both the front and back of the watch is a key feature, allowing the beautiful finishing of the movement to be seen.

The watch comes with an inner and outer box, instructions etc. and a certficate of origin and warranty paper.

It comes with a genuine stainless steel Deployant-buckle and an genuine steel bracelet, both are signed JLC.

The movement is a manual-wind Cal. 849R-SQ.

The SQ is taken from the French word "squelette" means skeleton.

It is one of the thinnest manual wind mechanical movements in the world, measuring just 1.85 mm.

Vacheron Constantin uses a Cal.849 based movement as Cal.1003.

Please take a look at the photos to see the fine finishing.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
