Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Art Deco

Reverso Art Deco is a rare limited-production Reverso wristwatch produced by Jaeger-LeCoultre from 1992 through 2000.

Model Overview

The Reverso Art Deco is a rare version of the Reverso Grande Taille with an engraved version of Cal. 822 visible through a sapphire display caseback. There is much confusion about this model, with even Jaeger-LeCoultre claiming it was produced only in 2000 but evidence that it was available a decade earlier. Europa Star covered the Reverso Art Deco in 1992, including photos of the watch clearly showing the same Cal. 822AD found on later models. In that article, the magazine claims that production is limited to just 10 per month, but it is likely that actual production was much less. It was again pictured in 1993 with Cal. 822 named, and specifically referenced in a 1994 piece to have been introduced in 1992. A 1999 piece references advertisements for the Reverso Art Deco model.

The case measures 42.2 mm tall by 26.1 mm wide, including the lugs. This nearly matches the 1.6 1 “golden ratio” of the classic Reverso case. Although small by modern standards, this case has sufficient room for shaped movements with modest functions, including calendar, second timezone, and power reserve. Not including the lugs, the case is 36 mm tall, and the inner “reversing” portion measures 30 x 26 mm.

It is likely that the Art Deco model was produced until 2000, consistent with the claims of the manufacture.



  • Swivelling case with more than 50 parts, turnable and pivotable for 180 degrees
