About Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches
Since 1833, in the heart of the Vallée de Joux, in the Swiss Jura Mountains, Jaeger-LeCoultre has continuously renewed its creativity and inventiveness. 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.
1833 – The first Jaeger-LeCoultre workshop was founded on the borders of the Swiss Jura by Antoine LeCoultre
1844 - Invented by Antoine LeCoultre, the Millionometre is the first instrument capable of measuring the micron to refine the manufacture of watch parts.
1866 - Under the leadership of Elie LeCoultre, son of Antoine LeCoultre, all watchmaking skills are gradually brought together under one roof.
1903 - Jacques-David LeCoultre, grandson of Antoine LeCoultre, takes up the challenge set for Swiss watchmakers by Edmond Jaeger, Parisian watchmaker, and starts developing ultra-thin watches
