Jaeger LeCoultre is a traditional watch manufacturer from Switzerland. In 1833 Charles Antoine LeCoultre and his brother Francoise Ulysse LeCoultre founded a gear manufacturing company in La Sentier in the Swiss Jura. Charles was an ingenious inventor. The millionometer he invented made it possible to measure mechanical components down to a thousandth of a millimeter. Other inventions, such as that of the crown elevator, established the company's reputation as a manufacturer of complex watch movements.

Manufacture of technically high-quality luxury watches

In 1903 Jacques David LeCoultre, the grandson of the company founder, met the Alsatian Edmond Jaeger. Both founded a partnership which, after many years of friendship, became the Jaeger LeCoultre manufactory in 1937. As early as 1903, the company had succeeded in producing the smallest mechanical chronograph, the smallest repeater watch and the smallest wristwatch. These masterpieces of precision mechanics have established the company's leading position in technology and reputation. Watches such as the Duoplan model (1925) achieved unprecedented accuracy. Another milestone was the Atmos model introduced in 1928, a table clock mounted under a glass bell and driven exclusively by the fluctuations in air pressure. Especially in the USA this watch was very popular, so that half of the production was sold there.

The legendary Reverso watch model

The legendary Reverso watch was released in 1931. This watch could be turned on the wrist and thus better withstood the blows and bumps that occurred in sports such as golf, polo or tennis. To this day, the Reverso is a watch with an unmistakable character and a true classic in the history of mechanical watches. In its long success story, the Reverso model has led to numerous variants. In addition to the rather spartan watches, very elaborate chronographs, as well as watches with minute repeater, tourbillon and a second time zone have emerged from this series. The materials used ranged from steel to rose gold, yellow gold and platinum with diamond ornaments. The wristbands of the luxury watches were made of precious metal links or crocodile and ostrich leather.

Other classic Jaeger LeCoultre watches

Even in recent history, the watch manufacturer has repeatedly succeeded in developing luxury watches that have become milestones in manufacturing technology. In 1989, for example, the Grand Reveil watch was released, an automatic watch with an alarm clock and a perpetual calendar. A year later the Geopgraphique was released, a masterpiece with power reserve and the display of different time zones. This series also includes the classic Master Ultra Thin (e.g. reference 1278420). The Master Control series represents an important step in watch production, as all watches in this series were tested for functional reliability 1000 hours before delivery. The watches have to pass tests that are sharper than the chronometer tests.

Concentration on high-quality technology

What is special about Jaeger LeCoultre is that the manufacturer produces the complicated movements of the watches from the very beginning. Because of their well-known quality, these are purchased from other manufacturers and installed in their watches. After a long period of concentration on the production of the classics, Jaeger LeCoultre has been presenting world firsts again for some time now. Watch models such as the Gyrotourbillon 1, Reverso Gyrotourbillon 2 and Duometre have won awards and were voted Watch of the Year in 2008. Hybris Mechanica and Hybris Mechanica a Triptyque are considered the most complicated watches in the world. Jaeger LeCoultre luxury watches are and always will be something special.
