Jaeger - LeCoultre Watches

Brief Brand History for :

In 1833, Antoine LeCoultre began producing watches from his workshop in the Vallée de Joux, Switzerland. He focussed on the accuracy of his movements, inventing a tool which could measure a micron in order to refine movement components. Antoine LeCoultre grew the business to integrate the production of every necessary component under one roof. The company became known as the “Grande Maison” due to its importance in the Vallée de Joux region. In the early twentieth century, LeCoultre was a leading supplier of watch parts and movements to many of the largest names in watchmaking, including Patek Philippe and Cartier. Due to this, the company is still known by the moniker “the watchmaker’s watchmaker.” In 1903, the French horologist Edmond Jaeger challenged Swiss maisons to develop ultra-thin movements. When LeCoultre took up the challenge, the two watchmakers began an auspicious partnership. In 1931, LeCoultre famously developed the reversible Reverso watch at the request of British polo players in India whose watches would break mid-game. In 1937, the Edmond Jaeger and Jacques LeCoultre’s companies officially merged to form Jaeger-LeCoultre. In 1950, Jaeger-LeCoultre developed the “memovox” alarm mechanism, which it still employs today. In 2000, Richemont acquired the maison. To this day, Jaeger-LeCoultre is one of the few companies in Switzerland that still produces virtually every component in-house. The brand is synonymous with quality, with each watch undergoing 1,000 hours of testing before leaving the company’s facilities.
