The Founding Family
Jaeger LeCoultre is a luxury Swiss brand of watches, founded in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre.The LeCoultre name is prestigious in Switzerland, with records of the brand’s founding family dating back to halfway through the 16th century. The family founded the village of Le Sentier, where Jaeger LeCoultre watches are still manufactured to this day. Antoine founded his flagship watchmaking business in the village in 1833. By 1844 he was making waves in the world of watches, and had invented the most precise time-measuring instrument at the time, named the Millionmétre. Throughout the rest of his life, he strived to innovate watches and earned himself a permanent place in the history books. Antoine passed away in 1881, leaving his empire to his son Elie.
A Perfect Partnership
In 1903, Edmond Jaeger, a Paris-based watchmaker for the Navy, had invented an ultra-thin movement mechanism for watches. He embarked on a mission to find a manufacturer capable of producing watches with this movement. In 1907, he partnered with Jacques-David LeCoultre and began making the world’s thinnest pocket watches - thus began the dream-team of Jaeger LeCoultre accessories. The brand dominated watchmaking in the 20th century, revolutionizing the world of watchmaking with innovative techniques and advanced technology. The brand is responsible for inventing the world’s smallest calibre, one of the smallest wristwatches in the world, and a mechanism which allows near-perpetual movement. Today, the label has moved into the world of ready-to-wear, with a collection of Jaeger LeCoultre clothes as well as their coveted watches.
