Considered the first ever sports watch, the Reverso has reinvented itself as a timeless one-collection watch: that is, one that can cross over from casual, sporting or formal events. Created to suit the needs of polo players for a watch whose case won’t break, it was the first watch with two faces, through a case that can be reversed.
With striking but elegant rectilinear lines, clear-cut gadroons and almost “golden rectangle” proportions, it embodied the Art Deco era perfectly. That is why, despite being discontinued after the second World War, it was able to come back successfully in the 80’s.
Apart from its two faces, what makes it so versatile is its simplicity: it displays the time on a white guilloche dial and very readable Arabic numerals.
