For the ultimate in femininity, Jaeger LeCoultre's Reverso Florale watch is a winner in the designer watches category for 2011. It offers a glamorous design with a pink alligator leather band and a secure deployment clasp. Two rows of diamonds are set into the top and bottom of the bezel. The dial is done is a silver guilloche sunburst pattern and the numerals are floral script. The hour and minute hands are delicately petite. Driven by reliable Swiss quartz movement, this designer watch is water-resistant to 99 feet and is protected by a sapphire crystal. The design of the watch allows for it to be reversed showing your own personal engraving.
The brand is unique in that it offers a design that allows for the dial of the watch to be flipped around should you want a different look or if you need to protect the dial. The Reverso design was created in 1931 from a challenge presented by British colonial officers who were stationed in India. They wanted something that would be able to withstand the dangers of playing polo without ruining their timepieces. The swiveling case provides a simple and brilliant way to protect the watch dial and has evolved beyond sporting events. It is an Art Deco inspired classic design that has withstood the passing of time and is as popular today as it was in the 1930's.
When given as a gift the back can be engraved with a favorite sentiment or it can be set with precious gems into a unique design. This makes every watch a one-of-a-kind treasure. This watch is the perfect fusion of high-end watch making and fine jewelry. If an engraved back is not desired, many of the brands designs offer a case with two watches in one.
This design has been reinterpreted since its inception from a handbag watch that was fitted with a cord wristlet and accentuated with precious stones to the back-to-back dials showing a day and an evening dial enabling the woman to wear her watch to both her day and evening functions.
With the smallest mechanical movement in the world, it has graced the wrists of such women as Queen Elizabeth II of England worn on her Coronation Day in 1953, Virginia Woolf, Anne-Marie Schwarzenbach and Simone de Beauvoir. A designer, luxury watch from Jaeger LeCoultre will surely make the lady in your life feel as special as a queen.
