News and Trends: Jaeger-LeCoultre, manufacturer of time-piece excellence since 1833, held a charity polo match at the Hurlingham Club in Buenos Aires, Argentina this week.
With each goal scored during the match, money was donated to the Christian Family Polo Movement, supporting the schools of lower income children in Buenos Aires.
Scoring these goals were some of the biggest names in polo including Clare Milford Haven, Eduardo Novillo Astrada, Alejandro, Lia Salvo, Gabriel Iglesias, Juan Carlos Harriet, and Will Johnston.
Spectators enjoyed a fast-paced match, viewing the game of polo being played at the highest level, with the sports’ stars and their horses working in perfect harmony. The horse is the most incredible animal that exists and polo ponies are capable of doing practically anything we ask them to”, Eduardo Novillo Astrada explained.
Jérome Lambert, CEO of Jaeger-LeCoultre, had the privilege of announcing the winner of the match and the exciting grand total of 10,000 US dollars that would be donated to the Christian Family Polo Movement by Jaeger-LeCoultre.
The luxury watch brand skillfully created the Reverso collection, known widely now as the only true polo watches in the world. British polo players in the Indian Army requested a watch that would be durable yet remain sophisticated and elegant.
Since answering their request in 1931, these impeccable watches have been donned by polo’s elite and royalty alike. Each piece in the collection is uniquely designed with features such as a 48-hour power reserve, reversible faces, second time zone display, water resistance, alligator leather, and crystal sapphires. In 2011, the Reverso will celebrate its 80th anniversary and Jaeger-LeCoultre will mark 178 years of time-stopping quality, esthetic, and craftsmanship.
