A perennially favored brand among the watch loving elite, Jaeger-LeCoultre, which is nominated for a Luxist Award, has one of the most industrious movement making arms of any haute horology watch maker. They currently hold the record for making the most complex wrist watch in the world, the $2.5 million Hybris Mechanic Grande Sonnerie, and also have a brand history that is deeply bedded with tradition.
Complex watches are a favored news item for the brand as their talented engineers toil ceaselessly at the next most visually and intellectually stimulating luxury creation. In addition to the most complex watches, Jaeger-LeCoultre is known for making the smallest mechanical watch movements as well as producing the famous Atmos clock, with a unique almost perpetual movement that is powered by tiny changes in air temperature. Still strong after over 175 years, the brand continues to inspire and surprise watch lovers by releasing creative new timepieces regularly.
Jaeger-LeCoultre has been fortunate enough to be adopted by both watch and fashion lovers. While many Jaeger-LeCoultre watches (such as the broad Master Compressor collection) are modern in style, the brand is best known for timeless icons such as the Reverso double-sided watch line. Such classics are often favored among the fashion and performance elite with Jaeger-LeCoultre being one of the hottest names (no one can quite pronounce) in the Hollywoods of the world.
