Jaeger LeCoultre is a Swiss luxury watch and clock manufacturer founded by Antoine LeCoultre in 1833 and is based Le Sentier, Switzerland. Since 2000 the company has been owned by the swiss luxury conglomerate Richemont.
When Antoine LeCoultre opened up a watch factory in Switzerland and began his career as a watchmaker. Antoine LeCoultre developed numerous new methods and manufacturing tools. The movements and watches that LeCoultre created are still depended on today by various other watch companies. When the company was in the hands of his grandson, David LeCoultre, the brand was merged with Edmond Jaegers company and that's how Jaeger LeCoultre was established.
Antoine created a button that could be push down to switch functions instead of utilizing keys to rewind and set the watch. After a watch was manufactured it had to be put through a 1000 hour test before it can be given to the consumer. Utilizing this method made room for no mistakes for such a high-end watch company, such as Jaeger LeCoultre.
Today, Jaeger LeCoultre is regarded as a top-tier wristwatch and table clock manufacturer, known for watches like the Reverso, Rendez-Vous, Master Compressor, Memovox Polaris, Marter Control, Geophysic, Duometre, Hybris Mechanica, and the Atmos Clocks. Also knows for the collaboration with the automobile manufacturer Aston Martin.
