Jaeger-LeCoultre has its own relationship with the world of polo. The brand’s Reverso was created in 1931 at the request of army officers in India who were tired of seeing their watches damaged by their polo matches. This led to creation of the Reverso’s famous swiveling case that protected the glass and dial by exposing only the metal back to potential knocks. Ever since, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso and polo have maintained strong ties.
