Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Gran'Sport
Although originally a sports watch, the Reverso line was surpassed in durability, water resistance, and trends by the 1990s. Jaeger-LeCoultre was leveraging the Reverso to help rebuild the brand with in-house movements and complications, so they developed a more sporting Reverso to help recapture that spirit. The result was the Gran'Sport, which featured greater water resistance and more sporting complications. The case was rounded and a unique multi-lug attachment with rubber straps gave it a distinctive look.
The Gran'Sport line was introduced in 1998 and remained on sale through the mid 2000s. In addition to the automatic Gran'Sport, a hand winding Duoface model was produced. A later addition to the lineup was the unique retrograde chronograph model. The last to be introduced was the Duetto or “Gran'Sport Lady” as it was known.
