Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches - A Nod to the Past

With one foot in the past but with an eye on the future, collectors can now buy Jaeger-LeCoultre online from Chrono24 and choose from a variety of cutting-edge models.

Featuring a variety of delicate and ornate finishes, this timepiece is as much art as a feat of engineering.

Predating both of these familiar faces is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos
– a clock of extraordinary accuracy and ancestry. Originally designed by Swiss engineer Jean-Léon Reutter in 1928, the Atmos lays claim to a near-perpetual movement and is still considered a marvel of the horological world. The Atmos derives its energy from small temperature and atmospheric pressure changes in the environment, essentially requiring nominal intervention by human hand and only losing one day every 3821 years. Jaeger-LeCoultre acquired the patent in 1936 and, since that time, has refined the Atmos into a truly contemporary timepiece that the Swiss government still presents to visiting dignitaries. What’s more, Jaeger-LeCoultre online provides an excellent range of these wonderful clocks for you to enjoy.
The Grandes Complication with Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches

The first chronograph and minute repeater complications were introduced to JLC watches in 1891, with increasingly intricate and elaborate grandes complications developing alongside the company’s technological advances. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s contemporary Hybris Mechanica range reflects this legacy, combining all the expertise, engineering and attention to detail its artisans are noted for.

Elegant Performance from Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches

Clear-cut lines and delicately curved casings conceal a technical performance equal to JLC movements.

In addition to the Master, Jaeger-LeCoultre also manufactures the Master Extreme series with an eye on raw performance.
