Jaeger LeCoultre Watches
Established in 1833, this luxury Swiss watch manufacturer has a long history of creative engineering. Manufacturing some of the most complicated and innovative watches in existence, the brand has been innovating for over 180 years. A self-taught watchmaker, Antoine Lecoultre was the son of a blacksmith, who was taught to merge intellect and creation. In doing so, began his first watch-making factory in the small barn on his family’s property.
He started the company at the age of 30. In 1844, LeCoultre created the Millionometre, the most accurate and precise instrument of time measurement at the time and in 851 won the gold medal at the Universal Exposition in London. As he strived to continue to make new and innovative watches, he was challenged by Edmond Jaeger to create one of the thinnest watches, to match the ultra-thin movements he had created.
As this led to a roaring success, they decided to pair their innovative minds and joined forces in 1937, establishing the brand Jaeger LeCoultre and cementing themselves as a global watchmakers.
The innovations that Jaeger-LeCoultre brings to its consumers are centered around the differences in style that they aim achieve. They still have impeccable and handmade, in-house movements and complications, but are encased in effortless and sleek styles.
One of these feats in simplicity was when they paired together to create one of the thinnest watches in the world. Still managing to keep all of the functionality and technology as in any other watch, but creating a design that was easy and pleasant to wear.
They also made watches that were more durable, such as the watch created for polo players, who complained that the faces of their timepieces were damaged during the game. Jeager Lecoultre crafted a watch that’s face simply flipped around, revealing plain metal, and hiding the crystal watch face. No matter what challenge comes next, you can count on Jaeger-LeCoultre to created refined, sleek, and timeless watches.
