The year is coming, the perpetual calendar pane on the watch is quietly waiting to turn to 2017.
The year 2016 is coming to an end, and time has passed as usual. We are grateful to meet you and witness the time turning to the next year together.
183 years ago, Jaeger-LeCoultre was founded in the Swiss canyon. Like the quiet valley, the watchmakers, with a long time to cultivate generosity and indifference, began an adventure in a miniature world.
No one can fight alone, so all 180 craftsmanship came under one roof. 1,249 self-produced movements, 413 registered patents, the frontiers between square inches, flashed because of the long-term persistence.
A watch driven by gears for precise walking has life through hand warmth. Craftsman’s ingenuity has been passed down for 183 years.
88 years ago, an air clock that could continue to run only by relying on changes in room temperature was comparable to a perpetual motion machine. 60 million air clocks consume less energy than a 15-watt light bulb. Today, the concept of environmental protection prevails, it exists quietly.
87 years ago, after the birth of Jaeger-LeCoultre, the world’s smallest mechanical movement 101, this record has not been broken.
85 years ago, the legendary Reverso watch, born from polo, has been baptized and always classic.
The guilloché pattern is presented in a new way at the Jaeger-LeCoultre Rare Craft Workshop and goes hand in hand with Jaeger-LeCoultre traditional craftsmanship. Its operation seems simple, but only extremely experienced craftsmen can master it proficiently.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre watch series can be individually engraved and decorated. This purely handcrafted technique includes line carving, mosaic carving, lacquer carving and relief.
Enamel is a true art craft. The enamel is roasted in a fire and presents a unique sense of depth. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s meticulous and noble grand fire enamel workmanship is particularly outstanding.
As a pioneer of fine watchmaking, Jaeger-LeCoultre has carefully created many gorgeous works with unique and exquisite mosaic technology. They were born under the skill of professional artists, reflecting the combination of beauty and precision.
Watches, as a timing tool, may be an object of consumption upgrade. But in the Jaeger-LeCoultre workshop, when each piece leaves, we will say ‘I wish you a good life’. Regardless of the cold summer, the mountains and the mountains, it is given life on your wrist, and it begins an adventure of its life with you.
All things have spirit, from the heart of those skilled artisans in Rugu Valley. The pursuit of near-extreme craftsmanship, adherence to tradition, and always innovate is the force that supports Jaeger-LeCoultre.
Here we are in 2017.
