Jaeger LeCoultre

Jaeger-LeCoultre is one of the most celebrated names in the watch industry. In 1833 Antoine Lecoultre established a workshop where he would utilize his revolutionary machine that produced watch making pinions. The original work shop has developed and expanded over the years and is used today. It was Antoine’s talents that perpetuated his reputation, as he created parts with such precision that no tool, from that time, could detect its flaw. With that being said, it was Antoine himself who invented the millionomètre. A tool so exact it is the world’s most precise measuring instrument for over half a century. In 1847, using his utmost innovation, the keyless watch was born. In 1858 that his son Elie joined the family business, at the young age of 16, and enhanced the small business into the first workshop in the Joux Valley. Housing more than 180 skills that are used to create the most impressive timepieces from start to finish was just the start of this iconic brand. 1903 Jaeger- LeCoultre is born from the partnership between Edmond Jaeger and Jacques David-Lecoultre. The piece The Ultra Thin is created and still received today with the utmost praise. As creations evolved there were more wrist watches being produced with unique cases that included rings and pendants. 1928 was a very special year, not only for Jaeger but, for the entire watch industry. Eventually the ATMOS II is introduced which brought even more praise for its astonishing design. An eclectic and innovative clock was designed that operated with the most minimal need. A temperature change by one degree is all that was needed to perpetuate this pioneering clock. Following suit of the novel and avant garde ideas the famed Reverso is delivered in 1931. This swiveling timepiece was invented due to the difficulties found by the polo players trying to protect their watch from the hard-knocks while simultaneously being able to keep time for the game. This piece currently remains one of the most legendary pieces to date. All of the Jaeger -LeCoultre pieces serve a need and fulfill an innovative passion that has been surpassed by their awards and accolades. The Memovox, Reverso, Grand Reveil and Geographique are added to develop an amazing collection of fine time pieces. Jaeger is truly a brand that understands variety as they house both fine time pieces that tout precision and beautiful baubles for the sophisticated woman as well as the perfectly precise tourbillion to please the watch aficionado. Jaeger-LeCoultre ensures that the designs are represented flawlessly through the intricate complexities and use of inventive materials.
