Jaeger-LeCoultre has been a principal player in the history of watch-making since 1833. With an immense heritage of more than 1,000 calibres and 220 registered patents, the brand is located in the Vallée de Joux. Its renown is as much in the field of grand complications as in the area of practical functionality or high class jewellery. Its Reverso and Master watches and the Atmos clock unify tradition and an avant-garde approach.
