Pioneers of chorological magic, Jaeger-LeCoultre is known for its Atmos-like perpetual motion watches and for its 1884 invention of the millimeter, the first ever device capable of measuring distances to the nearest micron.
Founded more than a century and a half ago, Jaeger LeCoultre is known as the Grand Watch of the Vallée de Joux, Switzerland, and this is not without reason, since the company’s workshops have produced a myriad of legendary watches: from Reverso and Duoplan to the incredibly complex Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie chronometer movement.
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s comprehensive portfolio includes a thousand calibres and two hundred patents developed by or with the company. Despite (or perhaps because of) its long history, the watchmaker remains at the forefront in terms of both technical innovations and impeccable designs.
