The Maison Jaeger Lecoultre has a remarkable history going back to 1833, when the company LeCoultre & Cie, was established in the Vallée de Joux. From that time, the brand has demonstrated a prominent role in the world of watchmaking. The manufacturers possess over 200 patents and have produced 1,000 calibres.
Jaeger Lecoultre’s creations are the leaders in technological innovations; ranging from ordinary mechanical watches to highly complex mechanisms. Each iconic design that has been invented is representative of French refinement and includes top class watches, such as the Reverso, the Duoplan, the Atmos, and the Memovox.
Antoine LeCoultre, the founder of the Maison and inventor of the modern watchmaking industry, had a strong interest in precision and watchmaking; manufacturing components with meticulous care. In 1851, LeCoultre won a gold medal at the 1st Universal Exhibition in London, for developing and incorporating the crown (a replacement of the winder key) on a gold chronometer.
LeCoultre & Cie continued to progress due to the expertise of its founder during the latter half of the 19th century. The business was taken over, at the start of the 20th century, by Antoine’s sons and grandsons.
The Jaeger LeCoultre brand is known to have progressed, in the second part of the 20th century, with its creative endeavor in targeting accuracy and technological innovation. The company has maintained its avant-garde and modern views. Jaeger-LeCoultre invented the Geophysics and Geometric chronometers together with the first automatic watch, the Futurematic, and then came the Memovox. The 1980s was looked upon as the era of miniaturization and high-quality precision with the advancement of meca-quartz movements; bringing in ever more innovative products.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre house has immense talent and passion for its creative determination in the maintenance of timekeeping excellence. Its magnificent watch collections include the various Reverso models, the Atmos clock, the Master Control and the Master Compressor. There are hoards of watches making their debut in the market each year; Jaeger LeCoultre watches belong to the few that keep their positions for 1 to 2 decades, beautiful and wondrous creations – the true legends of horology.
