    According to the Archives of Jaeger-LeCoultre, the present watch with a LeCoultre 410 movement was manufactured in 1933. It is interesting to note that the first Reverso watches with LeCoultre movements were introduced into the market at the beginning of July 1933.

    The celebrated "Reverso" wristwatch, the world's longest-running watch model, was originally launched in 1931. Essentially unchanged for more than 70 years, it continues to flourish both as a modern timepiece and as one of the few original Art Deco objects still in use.
