Give shape to your love story this Mardi Gras with Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso engraving service

Mardi Gras is ‘blinging’ out the streets of Sydney and we have a recommendation: not that Jaeger-LeCoultre has especially introduced this service for Mardi Gras, but why not make avail of it anyway and try out the Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso engraving service this Mardi Gras? 

The Brand

Jaeger-LeCoultre has been synonymous with fine watchmaking since 1833. The brand is known for sophistication and technical creativity. Since its inception, Jaeger-LeCoultre has been behind creation of more than 1200 calibres, often even providing the top watchmakers with their watch movements. 

The Watch

One of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s most iconic watches is the Reverso. 

Originally designed for Polo players, it features a reversible solid caseback — blank metal flip side initially designed purely for functional reasons — that helps protect its dial face (delicate glass from damage). 

Over the years this has seen many iterations, but one of the most commonly revered versions of Reverso is the plain caseback that acts as a canvas to an owner’s desires. This caseback is often used to create memories out of personalised engravings. 

The Engravings

Jaeger-LeCoultre offers the engraving service to all owners of steel or gold Reversos. The watch doesn’t even have to be bought brand new. You don’t even have to choose an engraving option on the spot. Jaeger-LeCoultre allows both new and used watches to be engraved, at the customer’s convenience. 

In terms of the designs, owners can choose either from a wide list of standard designs or can make avail of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s fully bespoke design service. 

It is the latter that we are so excited about. It gives owners the option to immortalise anything close to their hearts forever. 

In Sydney, one can easily make avail of this service by visiting the boutique at Shop 4/84 King St, Sydney NSW 2000. Alternatively, if you don’t wish to leave the comfort of your home or office, you can also make avail of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s engraving service online: https://engraving.jaeger-lecoultre.com.

This Mardi Gras, it is the right moment to celebrate love and time. But the need to engrave something personal isn’t reserved just for 29th February 2020. Any day, any moment could be a special moment for you and your story. 

Different people have different ideas about what to get engraved. But if you need some inspiration to help decide, here’s a look at what engravings some of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s ‘friends’ have on their Reversos.

British actor Nicholas Hoult (The Favourite, X-Men, A Single Man): “I engraved the initials HKH as a way to honour my son and keep him close to me every day. Timepieces have a tradition in my family of being passed down between generations. I am excited to pass along this watch to my son one day, “ says Hoult, adding that his interest in watches began through his own father’s fascination with timepieces.

American actress Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia! Les Misérables): “He’s (Amanda’s beloved pet dog) been my constant companion, unconditional support, and the guiding light in my life,” explains Seyfried. “He’s my forever lucky charm and having his little face against my skin every day will be the perfect reminder of how special our bond is.” 

Chinese actress Ni Ni (The Flowers of War and Love and Destiny): “When I was a child, many Chinese poems about the elegance and resilience of the plum blossom impressed me a lot. In my hometown, Nanjing, we have the ‘best Plum Blossom Mountain in China’ and Xuanwu Lake, where you can find plum trees blooming vibrantly even in winter snow,” Ni Ni explains. “The choice to include these elements was not only due to the classic beauty of the plum blossom, but also because it’s symbolic of perseverance in the face of adversity.”
