💡Luxury Tidbit 💡

Did you know? Jaeger-LeCoultre's success lies in its "Grande Maison" concept.

Founded in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre, Jaeger-LeCoultre started as a small workshop in the Swiss village of Le Sentier. Known for his innovative spirit, LeCoultre invented a machine to cut watch pinions from steel, revolutionizing watchmaking and laying the foundation for the brand's future success.

In “Grande Maison” creates all components of its watches in-house. From movements and cases to dials and bracelets, every part is meticulously crafted under one roof, ensuring exceptional quality and craftsmanship.

By controlling the entire production process, Jaeger-LeCoultre maintains strict quality control standards at every stage of manufacturing. This hands-on approach allows the brand to ensure that every watch that bears its name meets the highest standards of excellence and precision.

Horological Innovations:

The brand's artisans, many of whom have devoted their lives to the art of watchmaking, imbue each timepiece with a sense of heritage, expertise, innovation and tradition that is unmistakably Jaeger-LeCoultre.

World's Smallest Movement (Caliber 101):

In 1929, Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced Caliber 101, the world's smallest mechanical movement. Measuring just 14mm long, 4.8mm wide, and 3.4mm thick, this marvel of micro-engineering contains 98 components and weighs a mere one gram. Despite its diminutive size, Caliber 101 delivers exceptional accuracy and reliability, earning it a place in the Guinness World Records as the smallest mechanical movement ever created.

First Automatic Alarm Wristwatch (Memovox):

In 1956, Jaeger-LeCoultre unveiled the Memovox, the world's first automatic alarm wristwatch. Equipped with an innovative mechanical alarm complication, the Memovox revolutionized the way people could be alerted to important events or appointments.

Its distinctive ringing sound, generated by a vibrating membrane inside the case, quickly became synonymous with the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand and remains an iconic feature of its timepieces to this day.

These two pillars of Jaeger-LeCoultre's heritage – watchmaking mastery and horological innovations – continue to shape the brand's identity and inspire awe among watch enthusiasts worldwide.
