Jaeger-LeCoultre watches epitomise luxury haute horology. Set in the Joux Valley and nestled among the Swiss Jura mountains, master craftsmen dedicate their time, their skill and their passion to creating world-class luxury wristwatches for watch connoisseurs and aficionados alike. With movements consisting of around 1000 components for each Jaeger-LeCoultre watch, mechanical engineering is carried out in-house and by hand in many respects. The company remains one of the very few who carry out the completion of a single watch’s design from start to finish, inside the four walls of their factory.
Creating Jaeger-LeCoultre watches requires a complexity of intricate processes. Each tiny ruby is placed into position ready to be filled with oil to lubricate the regulating organ of the Jager-LeCoultre watch – the heart. Many dial patterns used for these timepieces have been applied with ultimate precision. The sunray effect on some Jaeger watches allow for light to dance playfully across its surface before glistening under the sun in a somewhat fluid-like form. The oscillating weights of Jaeger-LeCoultre watches are decorated in the same way as other components of each movement. If not decorated they are circular grained for an exquisite finish. At such levels of complexity, the skilled designers at Jaeger-LeCoultre must share their knowledge as well as their passion, working as a team at all times to complete such high levels in watchmaking purity. Microscopes and needle-fine brushes are used to decorate the dial appliqués and the detailing of each timekeeping instrument.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watches are strongly inspired by the brand’s relationship with polo. At first the development of the model was intended to withstand the rigors of the sport, however more recently, the timepieces have universal appeal and are worn for all manner of sports, events and celebrations. The Reverso Duoface watch was later invented – a timepiece with two faces, allowing the wearer to personalise the appeal and the look of their wrist, depending on the mood or occasion. The art deco-inspired design of Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watches is highly sought after for its beautiful rectangular profile, elegant lines and clear-cut gadroons.
