jaeger-le coultre

Swiss luxury watch and clock manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre, a fully owned subsidiary of Richemont founded in 1833, boasts a reputation based on equal measures of innovation and tradition. The manufacture, often called JLC, counts hundreds of inventions to its name, including a unique gem-setting technique called “snow-setting” and one of the world’s most complicated wristwatches, the 2006 Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie with 26 complications. All calibre components are still hand-decorated, making Jaeger-LeCoultre timepieces veritable works of art. This dedication to details speaks to the meticulousness that defines the JLC brand. Speaking to its prestige, JLC has engaged in many key partnerships with the likes of UNESCO, Aston Martin and the Responsible Jewellery Council.
