MASTERING THREE COMPLICATIONS

Jaeger-LeCoultre is home to a proud tradition of mechanical watchmaking, expressed through creations highlighting the wonders of three main luxury watch complications. Firstly sound, though the creation of a minute repeater earning the Maison the title of The Sound Maker.
