The texture on the dial surface is subtle, yet quite captivating. As are the blued applique markers and blued steel hands complement the elegance and exquisite simplicity of the watch.

 

The Reverso case, first shown by JLC in 1931 is a model of beauty. It looks deceptively simple, yet the case is extremely complex, and completely made in house in Le Sentier.
