  • Feminine Portraits : Gem setting

The know-how and virtuosity of the Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre is apparent in each and every one of its watches.  Watchmakers, craftsmen and craftswomen, engineers and technicians, gathered under the same roof, in the heart of the Vallée de Joux, share the same vision of excellence, working together to fashion unique watchmaking creations. These men and women push the boundaries of their art to bring a wealth of new surprises to enthusiasts of fine Swiss watches each year. 

In honour of those women, the Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmaking manufacture is proud to present a series of portraits focusing on the remarkable watchmaking skills found within the Grande Maison. This series gets underway with the craft of gem setter, highlighting the technique of snow setting, one of the many esteemed skills of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture, to mark Valentine's Day.
