MASTERING THREE COMPLICATIONS
Jaeger-LeCoultre is home to a proud tradition of mechanical watchmaking, expressed through creations highlighting the wonders of three main complications. Firstly sound, though the creation of a minute repeater earning the Maison the title of The Sound Maker.
Secondly precision, with a long-standing history of inventions leading to the creation of the Gyrotourbillon. And finally Celestial, with the development of some of the most sophisticated celestial information ever to be displayed in a watch.
A RELENTLESS DEDICATION TO PRECISION
Antoine LeCoultre pursued precision relentlessly. He worked by day in his father’s blacksmith workshop and spent his nights imagining and experimenting with solutions in a laboratory he created.
