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 Complete Service
Complete service, sometime called overhaul is the work of disassembling a mechanical product down to its individual parts, cleaning and reassembling it to bring it closer to its new state of performance.
Roughly speaking, the overhaul procedure is as follows.
1. Separate into case and movement
2. Disassemble the movement
3. Inspection and pre-cleaning of wear condition of each part
4. Wash parts with a special machine
5. Lubrication and assembly
6. Waterproof test
7. Final adjustment and running test.
Some movements are made up of hundreds of parts, but it is a very meticulous process of disassembling them one by one, inspecting them all, cleaning them, and reassembling them.
If you don't overhaul, the oil will deteriorate just like a car, and the risk of wear and damage to parts increases, causing a decrease in accuracy and, in severe cases, not working.
There is also the reason that it will be very expensive to replace parts after they are found to be damaged, so we recommend overhauling once every 2-3 years for economical and long-term use.
Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has rounded corners that were originally sharp, and has many small scratches even though the mirror finish should be beautiful. state.
At Arbitro, some watches are sold with a new finish, based on the idea that you can purchase them in beautiful condition and use them for a long time.
In particular, gold-cased dress watches are finished to bring out the best of the precious metal case.
The watches sold by us that have been given a new finish are shot in very high definition, so you can see that the edges stand out and the light is reflected by the mirror finish.
Also, depending on the case or bracelet, there are cases where multiple finishes such as mirror finish and hairline finish are mixed, but there are not many craftsmen who can distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.
In addition, the “thinness of the case” is also a part that is greatly influenced by the skill of the craftsman.
A watch that has become thinner and has thinner lugs is far from its original design, and the appearance becomes unbalanced.
It is a very precise work that brings the case closer to the original finish by eliminating scratches and dents while reducing the thickness of the case to the utmost limit.
Of course, there are cases where it is better to use the watch as it is, in order to emphasize the history of the watch and its original condition.
We look at each watch and judge whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
