|Famous for||One of the most famous and highly respected watch brands in the world. Antoine LeCoultre invented the millionometre|
Known as one of the four ‘old ladies’ of horology and the master of every complication, Jaeger-LeCoultre is one of the greatest watchmakers of all time. It all begin in 1833, when Antoine LeCoultre, devoted to the precision and reliability of time, invented the millionometre, that was able to measure one micrometre (one-millionth of a metre) which revolutionised watchmaking, eliminating the need to use a key to rewind and reset watches. LeCoultre’s dedication and inventive spirit teamed with Edmond Jaeger’s penchant for ultra-thin movements resulted in the creation of the most beautiful, highly technical, unique timepieces still enjoyed today. Such is its unparalleled development of movements that other manufacturers such as [glossary id=’6956′ slug=’audemars-piguet’ /], [glossary id=’7048′ slug=’panerai’ /] and [glossary id=’6984′ slug=’cartier’ /] (to name but a few) use them in their own watches. Effort-rich and stylish, each and every Jaeger-LeCoultre watch is only released after passing its stringent ‘1000 hours control’ test.
With its incredible dedication to innovation and its passion and continuing devotion to perfecting timekeeping – by simply wearing a watch created by Jaeger-LeCoultre, you will be honoring (and joining) some of the brightest minds in watch-making history.
