Jaeger-LeCoultre: Official Sponsor of the 120th Argentine Polo Open of Palermo
Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre is honored to be the official sponsor and timekeeper of the 120th Argentine Polo Open of Palermo, the oldest and most prestigious Polo tournament. Polo aficionados will be able to experience the fascinating championship from November 16 to December 7, 2013 featuring three weeks of competition among the world’s eight best teams. Open of Palermo is held each year at the Campo Argentino de Polo in Palermo, a district in Buenos Aires known as “Cathedral of polo”. The stadium can accommodate up to 16, 000 spectators. For over a decade, Jaeger-LeCoultre has been supporting Argentinean polo players through polo-themed benefit dinners as well as various special day events. Its model, Reverso, is the watch inked to the world of polo. It ranges from $4850 to $17, 500. The timepiece was created in 1931 “at the request of British colonial army officers in India who were tired of seeing their watches damaged by their polo matches – thereby sparking the invention of the famous swivelling case that protected the glass and dial by exposing only the metal back to potential knocks.” “The Reverso is the watch that means Polo. For me there is no other watch that is more related to polo. I am very lucky to wear my Jaeger-LeCoultre Squadra: it helps me not to be late! I share several values with Jaeger-LeCoultre: team work, passion, elegance – and for me most importantly of all, a family atmosphere,” said Jaeger-LeCoultre ambassador Eduardo Novillo Astrada. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso recognized ambassadors also include Argentinean polo player Eduardo Novillo Astrada. Jaeger-LeCoultre became a major player in watchmaking history since 1833. The manufacture “perpetuates the tradition of Grand Complication models illustrated by extraordinary creations and legendary watches such as the Reverso, the 101 watch, the Geophysic, the Memovox, the Master Control, the Gyrotourbillon, as well as the Atmos clock.”
