Aston Martin has no doubt some of the coolest watches on the market. And the Reverso Vantage Watch is no exception. It was designed by Jaeger-LeCoultre to celebrate the launch of the dazzling and highly desirable V8 Vantage Roadster.

The origins of the new Reverso Vantage timepieces can be traced back to 1931 when César de Trey, a pioneering Swiss figure in the history of Jaeger-LeCoultre, commissioned Parisian engineer René-Alfred Chauvot to develop a watch especially for avid polo players. To protect its dial from hard knocks during matches, this exceptional creation featured a unique swivelling case.

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. This watch can be your for 7500 GBP, or $12,000 at the current exchange rates.

The partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin has once again flourished to celebrate the launch of the dazzling and highly desirable V8 Vantage Roadster. In yet another demonstration of the two iconic companies’ common pursuit of innovation, performance and hand-crafted refinement, Jaeger-LeCoultre has designed two special editions of its time-honoured reversible wristwatch.

The origins of the new Reverso Vantage timepieces can be traced back to 1931 when César de Trey, a pioneering Swiss figure in the history of Jaeger-LeCoultre, commissioned Parisian engineer René-Alfred Chauvot to develop a watch especially for avid polo players.

More than 75 years on, the legendary Reverso still stands out among contemporary timepieces. While its classic Art Deco heritage continues to inspire ongoing generations of watchmakers, its dual personality perfectly reflects the two distinctly different characteristics of Aston Martin’s latest masterpiece.

With echoes of the V8 Vantage Roadster, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Vantage special editions offer two equally alluring faces: open, visible and invigorating or closed, cosseting and protective.

These two special editions – Reverso Vantage GT and Reverso Vantage Grande Automatique – 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.
