Ever seen a VC Reverso?

I believe only 5 were made in steel in the mid 30s!

Ever seen a VC Reverso?

Wow, who was the first one then to release a Reverso: VC or JLC?...
05/15/2008 - 17:19

can't find any info on JLC website as to the initiation of the Reverso production.

I think it was JLC in 1931 who then licenced the rotating case

patent to other makers (PP, Tavannes, Cartier...)

Excellent! It won't definitively be possible today (nt)

I also understood Tavannes were among the first, was not it ?

to the best of my knowledge the 1st Reverso's used Tavannes

movements and maybe as such Tavannes was one of the 1st to use the Reverso case design? A JLC connaisseur will certainly have a straighter answer.

I just love it : VC & JLC : my two favorite brands together into one of my favorite designed watch !

isn't that amazing, Berny? having this watch would be a dream-come-true for you...

Wonder what V&C did with the movement?

Guess why Doc hasn't responded to this Post yet?

You got it, he's searching for this most rare V & C.

Only a "manner of time" before he shows this beauty.

For the time being wish Doc good hunting! Best, Miki

I never saw this watch from VC!

Alex, can you tell me what is written on the dial, please?

As far as I heard it, JLC was the first to introduce Reverso on the market, and Tavannes brought movements for the first years.

Quite surprising...

over the seconds subdial is probably written Birks which was VC's

That's a very expensive SS watch it went for CHF 80,500 in 2003. I wonder how much it would go for now?

that Oct 03 auction was just amazing and in a way the starting

point of VC's return as an auction market hot shot.

Yeah that's a VC that all stuck in the back of my mind also

the Patek one I had seen.  Christie's(?) once sold a vintage cushion shaped  minute repeater  (2003?) does  anyone  remember that?  Would love see a picture.

here you go. Cushion shaped minute repeater in WG with rose

gold repeater slide.

Gorgeous and the only one I have ever seen

Thanks Alex, your like a VC treasure trove of information

and photos

comparison with my Reverso Duo

I didn't know VC also has Reverso watches.

To compare contemporary JLC Reverso, let me post mine.

Case design looks quite similar, but dial design is somewhat different;

JLC Duo gives me more modern impression to me, but personally,

I prefer VC dial.

Thanks Alex for making me discover VC Reverso.

Face 1

Face 2: also has GMT function.

Thanks Alex...
