In the heart of the Vallée de Joux, in the Swiss Jura Mountains, the Manufacturer Jaeger‑LeCoultre has continuously renewed its creativity and inventiveness since 1833. One hundred and eighty different expert skills are brought together under one roof, to breathe life into the heart of the watches and to animate each infinitely small component. Design, assemble, decorate or crimp; every different stage required for the creation of a Jaeger‑LeCoultre timepiece is conducted within the Grande Maison.
Since the beginning, the Maison has created more than 1200 calibers, which today have earned it unique renown in the watchmaking industry. Its iconic collections, such as the Reverso which was born of the Art Déco movement in 1931, the Master, with classic and refined masculine lines, or even the Atmos, the pendulum watch with almost perpetual movement, form the foundation for the Manufacturer’s pride and the satisfaction of their loyal clients.
Inspired by the iconic Memovox Polaris watch from 1968, Jaeger-LeCoultre has developed a new collection to join the brand’s existing pillars.
Not just a single homage to a historical reference, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris collection takes the spirit of Memovox Polaris and applies it to today’s man of action with a full range of timepieces: a three-hand automatic, a chronograph and a chronograph world time, as well as two models with a stronger vintage feel: the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Date and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Memovox.Combining the high manufacturing know-how of Jaeger-LeCoultre, where all mechanical movements are made in-house, with the robustness, design aesthetic and sporty elegance today’s man demands, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris is destined to become the symbol for an active lifestyle.
Classic, Round, Timeless
The Master collection by Jaeger‑LeCoultre frees itself of accessories to focus on the essential. It shows itself just the way it is. Grandly elegant.
Recognizable because of its sleek design, the Master collection is available in three ranges: the Master Grande Tradition, the Master Ultra Thin and the Master Control. Though each one has its own features and complications, what they all have in common is their rounded shape and the fineness of their details. Purity, and nothing else.
The Art Deco style was inspired by a dream of a grand ideal, and the desire to offer the world a new aesthetic and new values. It sought a new balance, a symbiosis between form and function. With its elegant, rectangular lines and clear-cut gadroons, the case of the Jaeger‑LeCoultre Reverso watch takes its inspiration from these same ideals.
Timeless in its face surrounded by its three emblematic gadroons, the Reverso has been enchanting both men and women with an eye for beauty since its creation. From its outset it was equally envisioned for women’s wrists. Often androgynous, it knows how to show off its femininity in jeweled models or affirm its masculinity by pronounced complexities and aesthetics.
Contrary to popular belief, the first wristwatches were worn by women. Always on the cutting edge, Jaeger‑LeCoultre was one of the first to offer women elegant watches, completely set with diamonds and with exceptionally small calibers.
The Rendez-Vous collection is a tribute to this tradition, and it aims to make modern women look and feel sublime.
There’s an automatic caliber in the interior of its case…and a large place left to the imagination. Poetic, hypnotic complications: like a whirlwind. The dream is everywhere.
