Jaeger-LeCoultre’s history can be traced back to the 16th century, when Pierre LeCoultre settled in the village of Le Sentier to escape religious persecution. The horological lineage, however, started officially in 1833, when Pierre’s descendant, Antoine LeCoultre invented a machine that could fashion watch pinions from steel, and started a small watchmaking workshop where he subsequently conceived more epochal inventions, including the Millionometre and keyless winding system.
The official Jaeger-LeCoultre company came into being in 1937, when Antoine’s grandson, Jacques-David, collaborated with a French watchmaker, Edmond Jaeger, to develop and produce ultra-thin movements that the latter had invented.
The founders’ spirit of innovation and technical excellence has defined the company to this day. Since its founding Jaeger-LeCoultre, has remain a true watch Manufacture that is capable of conceiving and constructing its timepieces entirely in-house, and has produced over 1,200 proprietary watch movements and registered over 400 patents.
