The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Gran Sport
There’s an outstanding appeal about pieces that combine aesthetic and design with functionality. Originally sported by polo players who would turn the reversible face to protect the bezel during matches, the Reverso is an iconic timepiece which evolved over the years. Without the need to face such physical ordeals as before, this version presents two distinct faces: a sportier one and the ever elegant day and night classic.
Faithful companions #2
I have a thing for watches…without wanting to underrate the role other objects play in a man’s attire, I find the watch to be the ultimate men’s accessory.
Throughout history, and to this day, they’ve been spotted on the wrists of powerful and stylish individuals, emphasizing they’re image of confident, self assured, decided men. Not to say these traits cannot be portrayed by bare wristed men, but there’s something about a watch that just seems to accentuate them. In fact, as it’s usually the only accessory for many men, a timepiece can say much about its wearer…
For the second entry of the “Faithful Companions” series, I’ve decided to go with what is probably my favourite watch among those I own: the Rolex GMT Master II. The thing I love the most about it, is that it’s been passed on to me by my father, so on top of being an outstanding horological piece it holds a deep sentimental value. Furthermore, its aesthetic makes it an all rounder, being definitely one of the heaviest rotated pieces in my collection.
I definitely hope to carry on the tradition by passing it on to my son someday…
