India, dating back to 1930, is still the territory of the British Empire, and most of the riders who steered war horses for polo are British sergeants in the Indian army. Their ongoing movement originated in Persia and spread to Eurasian countries. It was also very popular in the Han and Tang dynasties in China. In the 13th century, the sport reached India. British planters saw the charm of the sport in Assam, India, and brought it to England, and gradually became popular in the following centuries. The movement spreading over the grasslands of Central Asia, at this time, because of the improvement of the soldiers of the Queen of Britain, injected a few touches of England, blended into elegance, sensitivity and fierce competition. However, the polo competition was too fierce, making the watches on the wrists of riders inevitably bear the brunt and became the victims of the competition. After all, watches are high-precision timing tools. Under severe collisions and vibrations, even today’s watches with excellent shock resistance, how many can survive?
In the cheers of the audience, the race was over. A sweaty, dusty rider took the horse and walked to a gentleman standing on the sidelines in plain clothes. The man named C & eacute; sar de Trey was not a British citizen but a Swiss. After starting his dental business in London, he switched to selling fine watches. The officer showed the businessman angrily the watch he was wearing during the game, and the glass mirror was already broken.
That evening, at a reception organized by the local polo club, the British officer was still grieving over his damaged watch, and he again walked to Mr. Terry, because he knew that the well-dressed gentleman was a A small and famous watchmaker. He consulted Mr. De Terry: Can he design a watch that is trustworthy enough in quality to stand the test of such a polo game. This is naturally an extremely difficult challenge. If you change to another watchmaker, you may even laugh at this wild idea. However, Terry is not a person who gives up easily, but out of caution, the Swiss watchmaker did not directly agree to the officer’s request, but chose to remain silent. But as soon as Detry returned to Europe, he immediately met with his most familiar watchmaker: Jacques-David LeCoultre.
The watchmaking workshop run by Mr. Galleries is also outstanding in Switzerland. This workshop has all the tools and technology necessary for the design and manufacture of high-end watch movements. At that time, there were already nearly 200 different chronograph movements under the name of this workshop, and the same number of timekeeping movements. This workshop also designs a large number of original inventions, and adopts excellent design and assembly technology. These are the capitals that can stand out from the competition in the same industry. In addition, Jacques-David Lecourt worked closely with the Jaeger-LeCoultre Paris, once working together to design Duoplan watches. Therefore, it is natural that Jaeger-LeCoultre is the partner of the case development.
Through a series of discussions and exchanges, they came up with an optimal solution. With a reversible case, the metal back can be flipped to the front during a fierce exercise to protect the inside of the watch from collision . At the same time, in the design of the watch, the ART DECO (that is, decorative art) form lines that have been popular in the world since the 19th century were used for decoration, and it has been passed down to the present, making the appearance and inner of the watch quite legendary. On March 4, 1931, engineer Alfred Chauvot applied for a patent for the watch. Today, the dialogue between patent office staff and the designer can still linger in people’s ears. .
& Ldquo; What is the name of your invention? & rdquo;
& ldquo; Reverso. & rdquo;
‘What is the meaning of the word Reverso? & rdquo;
‘Invertible, the word comes from Latin. & rdquo;
& ldquo; Reverso, take it down. Your patent is registered. & rdquo;
In November 1931, Caesar & middot; De Terry purchased the patent right of Reverso watch from Alfred & middot; Shewo, and co-founded the watch and clock franchise company (Sp & eacute; cialit & eacute; s Horlog & egrave; res), which aims to manufacture and sell this epoch-making watch. Due to the blockbuster performance of the Reverso watch, after the purchase of its patent right from Detry, the watch franchise company was renamed in 1937 as ‘Soci & eacute; t & eacute; de ​​vente des produits Jaeger- LeCoultre’, This is also the hallmark of Jaeger-LeCoultre as a brand.
Flying dust, clear horseshoes, young officers, wanton wielding mallets, a brand’s glorious history of development, opened with these things.
