Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture
Our Maison

Manufacture since 1833

In 1833, at the heart of a remote valley, a brilliant inventor named Antoine LeCoultre set up a small workshop handcrafting exceptional luxury Swiss watches and clocks imbued with a strong spirit of innovation. His workshop would go on to become Jaeger-LeCoultre.

A true Manufacture from the start

Since the very beginning, precision of movement and technique have been central to the mission of the Grande Maison, established in the calm and serene setting of the Vallée de Joux, also known as the “valley of horological complications”.

With nearly 200 years of history, Jaeger-LeCoultre is a pioneer in the Swiss watchmaking industry thanks to its constant innovation and creativity that pushes the limits of watchmaking. Bringing together 180 different skills under one roof, it is one of the only true Manufactures with the capacity to produce all its luxury watches in their entirety, from design to production.
