Jaeger LeCoultre watches have a long-standing appeal as fashion accessories amongst both men and women. Apart from their highly alluring look, they have the unique feature of enhancing the appearance of the simplest attire due to their elegant and sophisticated design.
Antoine Lecoultre was born in1803, he worked in his father’s workshop as a metalworker; being an ingenious engineer who worked hard to devise specialized watch mechanisms to the utter amazement of connoisseurs of refined watchmaking. Eventually, in 1833, the Maison Jaeger-LeCoultre was established in the Joux Valley of Switzerland.
The wristwatch ended up taking over the pocket watch, a trend adopted by famous groups of watchmakers, like Cartier. One renowned manufacturer, Edward Jaeger who was also the chronometer producer, realized the changing trend and proceeded to form a strong collaboration with LeCoultre.The joint ventures of these two outstanding watchmakers resulted in the creation of some of the most exceptional watches of all time. The Swiss house is at the heart of superb technical innovations resulting in the brand’s remarkable performance worldwide. This includes watch collections of high-quality calibres and ultra-precision timepieces; ranging from minimal to advanced mechanisms.
Brand designs are inclusive of the Reverso, a Latin derivation of “I turn on myself”; a durable timepiece created specifically for sportsmen, in 1931. The watch case was made to be able to endure the roughest movements undertaken by polo players. The Reverso is a renowned jewelry piece, a true symbol of Art Deco, one that is still discussed to this day.
In 1929, Jaeger LeCoultre launched one of its most symbolic creations: the Caliber 101; a lightweight watch of 1g. The older models consisted of 74 components whereas the latest ones have a total of 98. Even today, the watch is looked upon as the tiniest mechanism to be built in the world. Queen Elizabeth II of England, on her coronation in 1953, wore a Jaeger LeCoultre Caliber 101 wristwatch.
