The Jaeger-LeCoultre classics
In 1931 the classic Reverso model appeared with the reversible case typical of the watch. Do you know the origin of the turning case? British Army officers in India requested a watch from JLC that would meet the demands of playing polo . Turning the case protects the dial and glass. The watch still appeals to a wide range of buyers today - around 40% of sales are made with this model. Meanwhile with many model variants - all speak one language:
clear, geometric lines - the Art Deco style
An extraordinary watch with alarm function . In 1950, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched this watch. It was designed with 2 barrels, one for the alarm and one for the movement. The two movements are operated using the two crowns - one at two o'clock and the other at four o'clock. The alarm time could be set with the additional display in the middle.
The classic Memovox was very popular and celebrities such as Charlie Chaplin wore them - or rather they were given to them by the company.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Grand Reveil
In 1989, the classic Grand Réveil came onto the market with an automatic movement with an alarm clock and a perpetual calendar. This is where Jaeger-LeCoultre shows its core competence: in-house manufactured movements.
The combination of perpetual calendar and alarm clock is the highest art of watchmaking.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Series
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Series is simple, classic and timeless. The hallmark of the Master series is the slim design. It is available in three versions: Master Grande Tradition, Master Ultra Thin and Master Control. And each watch has different additional displays - but they all have the puristic design in common.
Jaeger-LeCoultre the movement manufacture
The LeCoultre company was founded in 1833 by the brothers Charles Antoine LeCoultre and Francois Ulysses LeCoultre. Their core competence lies in the manufacture of watch movements.
LeCoultre's masterpieces are reflected in the following figures. In 1903 the world's thinnest movements were produced:
-> mechanical movement with 1.38mm height
-> Chronograph movement with 2.8mm height
1903 is also a decisive year for the brand: Jacques-David LeCoultre meets Edmond Jaeger. He paved the way for him into the luxury watch market segment and became a partner in 1937 .
The Jaeger-LeCoultre brand was born . The brand is a leader in form movements , meaning the movements take advantage of the shape of the watches - particularly in the case of rectangular watches.
After the death of Jacques David LeCoultre (1948), the family business went to a holding company until it ended up under the umbrella of VDO/Mannesmann in the 1970s. Where IWC and A.Lange&Söhne also belonged. The division was resold to the Richemont Group .
