    About Jaeger-LeCoultre

    Jaeger-LeCoultre is a Swiss luxury watchmaker with a rich history and significant contributions to the world of horology. The brand was established in 1833 by a watchmaker Antoine LeCoultre in Switzerland. In 1903, Edmond Jaeger, a French watchmaker, challenged Swiss manufacturers to produce ultra-thin movements, leading to a collaboration between Jaeger and LeCoultre.
    One of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s most notable creation is the world’s thinnest mechanical movement. It’s called the Caliber 145 and was introduced in 1907. The innovation solidified the brand’s reputation for precision and technical expertise. In 1928, the brand released the Atmos clock, a unique timepiece that runs without needing to be wound manually. It operates on temperature and atmospheric pressure changes, making it an engineering marvel.
    In the 1930-40s, the company faced challenging economic conditions but managed to stay afloat by diversifying its production. Jaeger-LeCoultre supplied movements to other prestigious watchmakers and collaborated with renowned designer René-Alfred Chauvot to create the iconic “Reverso” watch. Introduced in 1931, the Reverso featured a reversible case, designed to protect the delicate watch face during polo matches. This innovative design became a symbol of elegance and functionality, contributing significantly to the brand’s success.
    The 1950s marked another era of innovation for Jaeger-LeCoultre. The company introduced the Memovox, the first automatic wristwatch with an alarm function, in 1950. This timepiece became a favorite among professionals and adventurers.
    In the following decades, Jaeger-LeCoultre continued to showcase its technical prowess with the introduction of the Gyrotourbillon, a multi-axis tourbillon, and the Master Compressor series, known for its robust and sporty design. The brand also contributed to the development of high-precision quartz movements in the 1970s.
    Today, Jaeger-LeCoultre remains at the forefront of watchmaking, combining traditional craftsmanship with cutting-edge technology. Its legacy of innovation and iconic designs continue to make the House a highly esteemed and influential brand in the world of luxury watches.
