British actor and friend of Jaeger-LeCoultre, Clive Owen narrates and stars in a short film titled ‘Clive Owen presents 180 Years of Inventions by Jaeger-LeCoultre,’ highlighting some of the stunning inventions by the iconic watch brand. In celebration of its 180th anniversary this year, the last 12 months has seen the watchmaker release a series of films and partnerships with its friends.
Clive Owen, who has been wearing Jaeger-LeCoultre watches for many years now started as a fan before becoming its firm friend. He says “Watchmaking has long been a passion. The mechanism and the history behind the Jaeger-LeCoultre watches is fascinating. A Jaeger-LeCoultre watch is everything you want a high quality watch to be – all the hours of workmanship make this a beautiful and very elegant watch to wear and it also looks great. The level of the craftsmanship is so impressive: the ethos of the company with their attention to detail make these watches very desirable. I always wear my Duomètre à Chronographe in platinum and it feels right!”
Owen joins actress and Jaeger-LeCoultre’s brand ambassador Diane Kruger who also took part in a short film in the summer.
