Jaeger celebrates 125 years of Raffles Hotel


Jaeger-LeCoultre has launched two special edtition Reverso timepieces to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Singapore’s luxury Raffles Hotel.

The brand has created the watches for Raffles, which reaches the milestone in September, engraved on the Reverso plain caseback with ‘Raffles Hotel 1887-2012 Singapore’.

The models available will be the Gents’ Reverso Grande Taille and Ladies’ Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin with soft brown and deep purple straps, respectively.


Pierre Jochem, general manager of Raffles Hotel, said: "Like Raffles, Jaeger-LeCoultre never stands still it continues to inspire and surprise. Whether it’s staying in Raffles or wearing a Reverso, style and magic has nothing to do with age.

“Timelessness is about moving with the times and adapting to the world around us but never forgetting our heritage, which is priceless."

The hotel is named after Sir Stamford Raffles, founder of Singapore. It originated as a 10-room bungalow and was built in the years thereafter into the landmark hotel that is known for today.

Visitors over the years have included legendary writers Rudyard Kipling, Somerset Maugham and Noel Coward.

Jaeger recently launched a timepiece dedicated to the new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, 17 years after it created its first Reverso model to celebrate the Batman film franchise.
