Marc Menant (product manager at Jaeger-LeCoultre) mailed me the latest JLC novelty 🙂 An iPhone application that enables JLC adepts or prospects to examine their line of watches more thoroughly, where ever you are.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso can actually be reversed by a simple movement on the touch screen, the chronograph functionality works when tapping the pushers properly etc.

If you have an Apple iPhone, what are you waiting for? Look for ‘jaeger’ in the AppStore and after selecting the application, click ‘Free’ and ‘Download’.
