Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Aston Martin Edition

Lot No.: 705

Sold for (£): 2,400

The partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin once again flourished to celebrate the launch of the dazzling and highly desirable V8 Vantage Roadster. Jaeger-LeCoultre has designed two special editions of its time-honoured reversible wristwatch. This watch will be offered in two versions: Reverso Vantage GT and Reverso Vantage Grande Automatique. Both versions perfectly combine the dual personality of Jaeger-LeCoultre's iconic timepiece with the high performance and understated elegance of Aston Martin's V8 Vantage Roadster. 

Originally designed for polo players to rotate the watch over so to protect the vulnerable glass from being broken. These watches were extremely popular. The case of this watch is stainless steel and polished in finish and attached to an Jaeger signed ostrich strap and fitted to a double folding clasp signed Jaeger. The dial is a smart and traditional black colour with black Arabic numbers with the 8 marker standing out in red. The back is engraved with Aston Martin car outline and 'vantage Reverso' engraved. The watch was originally sold with a £7500 rrp. This watch has the mechanical manual wind movement. Complete with box and service paperwork. The Reverso is a classic; its styling has made it one of the current hot watches to own and this one is a rare motoring example
