Tourbillons have come a long way during the past 200+ years of their existence. That time has proven sufficient to provide major ups and downs – and more than one full life cycle for this fairy invention.

We recently featured an exclusive hands-on look at the new for 2013 Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Perpetual calendar watch. We were excited both by the price and aesthetics of that sexy and slim perpetual calendar with its classic design. That watch represented one of the three pillars which we consider to be the strengths of Jaeger-LeCoultre as a brand.
At an event this evening in Las Vegas, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched their brand new Master Ultra Thin Perpetual, a svelte addition to the Master line of dress watches that boasts a full perpetual calendar in a case family that we all know and love…
At SIHH 2013 the most prestigious of the actually many prestigious new Jaeger-LeCoultre watches was a new version of the famous Gyrotourbillon.
Jaeger-LeCoultre announces the seventh version of their Aston Martin automobile collaboration watches with the AMVOX 7 Chronograph. It marks eight years of working together with the auto maker on a watch which began with the kitschy idea of having a function that allows you to lock and unlock your Aston Martin car with a luxury watch.
For class and confidence it is hard to beat a Jaeger-LeCoultre Master collection timepiece. When I say this I mean two things. First of all, these are formal timepieces meant for fancy occasions and suits. A smart person could pull it off casually, but this is an elegant creation before it is a sport watch […]
Of all of the world’s many thousands of hotels, very few ever become an icon for the city or country in which they are based. Consider Haiti’s Hotel Oloffson, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa (as seen in MI4: Ghost Protocol) or the Bellagio Hotel of Las Vegas. These are hotels that have become international set pieces and […]
For many people, today July 20th, 2012 is another “Batman” day as the latest movie hits theaters. The third Chris Nolan Batman movie opens and brands are eager to capitalize on Bat-fever. In the The Dark Knight Rises Bruce Wayne (played by Christian Bale) wears a Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Grande Date. I look forward to seeing […]
Jaeger-LeCoultre has been riding a wave of high praise in the wake of their SIHH announcements of vintage-inspired watches, such as the Tribute to Memovox Deep Sea of 2011 and the Tribute to Deep Sea Chronograph from earlier this year. While we like tributes as much as the next guy, we really like it when a […]
It might have been about 2005 that Jaeger-LeCoultre released the first Gyrotourbillon watch. When it came out, it caused a real stir and it was released during what I call “the tourbillon wars”. During this time brand after brand began to release tourbillon escapement-based watches. This was interesting because the entire idea of a tourbillon […]
“The 1960s was the sexiest era in US history.” I am paraphrasing Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner after interviewing him in conjunction with the launch of the limited edition Mad Men Reverso watch known as the “Mad for Reverso” piece. His personal love of the era easily transcends through the show. “It was about time […]
As I write this review I am actually freshly back from a visit of the Jaeger-LeCoultre manufacture in Le Sentier, Switzerland…
I am in Switzerland – in the Jura mountains to be exact – and it is snowing. As a California guy I don’t see much snow. In fact, the only times I have really seen snow in my life has been in Europe. The place looks like something out of a Christmas card. There is […]
As SIHH each year Jaeger-LeCoultre is on my short list of brands that I am very excited to see. Their booth isn’t design by people who work at Universal Studios, and their watches are cool creations that real people might actually wear. This applies to both their reasonably priced pieces and more exotic fare like […]
Now isn’t that pretty? This is a special Milan Boutique edition of the newer Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra-Thin watch. The version with the limited “heritage” dial that is. According to Jaeger-LeCoultre in the 1930′s red (among other bright colors) were very popular for wrist watch dials. This model has a bright red lacquered dial. I […]
