Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches was established by Antoine-LeCoultre a self taught talented watchmaker in 1833. Along with being an extremely gifted craftsman he was also a brilliant inventor light years ahead of his time. He built the original machine that was able to produce the pinions for clocks and watches and in 1844 he developed the millionometer, the world’s most accurate measuring tool. This revolutionary instrument was capable of measuring the micron, one-millionths of a meter, thus raising the bar and putting Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches at the forefront of the horological industry.
With the guidance of Jacques-David LeCoultre, grandson of Antoine, along with Parisian Edmond Jaeger, an exceptional watchmaker in his own right, Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches built the record breaking LeCoultre Caliber 145 in 1907 which at 1.38 mm was the thinnest watch movement created at the time. Edmond Jaeger was also an artist and avant garde designer who believed that aesthetics in watches was equally important as its inner workings. Using the Art Deco styling as inspiration he created some of the most extraordinary timepieces for Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches the world had ever seen. The Reverso, introduced in 1931, with its unique swivel system is an iconic example of his influence and remains one of the most recognized luxury watches today.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches has earned many distinctions in the hyper competitive world of watch making. In 1941 Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches was awarded the highest honor from the Neuchatel Observatory in Switzerland, the most prominent observatory that assessed the accuracy and rated timepieces, for the tourbillon Caliber 170. They are also the designers of the ‘Hybris Mechanica a Grande Sonnerie’ the world’s most complicated wristwatch, incorporating 26 complications in one amazing timepiece.
