In 1833- Antoine LeCoultre set up a small workshop in Vallée de Joux handcrafting exceptional luxury Swiss watches and clocks imbued with a strong spirit of innovation. His workshop would go on to become Swiss luxury brand Jaeger-LeCoultre. An interesting point to note is that Jaeger-LeCoultre is one of the only companies which creates, develops, decorates and produces all its luxury watches and clocks by hand.. within its own workshops. Since its inception and in order to make each watch in its entirety, the company has housed the full range of professions, techniques and technologies under a single roof to give birth to the finest Swiss watchmaking creations. Let’s check out some of the finest watches.

Reverso Tribute Monoface Small Seconds

In its 8.51 mm stainless steel case, Jaeger Le-Coultre Reverso Tribute Small Seconds is equipped with the Manufacture hand-wound Calibre 822; each component is meticulously decorated and features a small seconds hand at 6 o’clock that showcases the luxury brand’s mechanical ingenuity. On the opaline dial, the lines of the gadroons, the minute track, the applied hour-markers and the black Dauphine hands are evocative of the Art Deco inspired aesthetic codes of the first Reverso in 1931. This model with a customisable reverse comes with a black bi-material leather or canvas strap in the Casa Fagliano design.
