Jaeger LeCoultre Squadra Reverso Chronograph Ref.230.8.45

£4,450.00GBP
vws0882cs

One of Jaeger LeCoultre’s under appreciated pieces, the Reverso Squadra GMT Chronograph Ref.230.8.45 demonstrates unparalleled attention to detail, a wonderfully textured dial, and a (literal) twist; the case pivots on itself to reveal the glass-cased movement behind this masterpiece.  

Big date complication at 12. A sublime automatic calibre 754 chronograph movement with column wheel and 39 jewels. 

Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso Squadra Ref.230.8.45 is a unique modern piece that attracts the attention of avid collectors and curious onlookers alike, due in part to the beauty of the dial and the size of the case. The two-minute trackers that sandwich the hour batons create a textured juxtaposition between the centre of the dial, the three registers and the outer dial which crafts a silvery, sleek look which is pleasing on the eye.  

The case also benefits from this texturing, with two sets of lines engraved above and below the dial in an effort to mark the static elements of the case as opposed to the pivoting watch. The crown with the iconic Jaeger-LeCoultre emblem is straddled by the two chronograph pushers controlling stop/start and reset.    

In superb condition throughout.    

Being larger than the typical Reverso, it wears beautifully for either formal or informal occasions alike. This watch always gets noticed as it looks so good on the wrist, you can't help but fall in love with it.
