The art of time, from watchmaking to photography

Jaeger-LeCoultre, a leading name in fine watchmaking, is committed to the world of cultural patronage, and more particularly to the world of photography.

The Manufacture is a special partner of Jeu de Paume and also supports other exhibitions by major artists.

Completing its range of actions on behalf of photographic culture worldwide, Jaeger-LeCoultre also partners projects promoting the work of promising young artists and has published a book entitled Portraits de Manufacture, featuring the work of 17 photographers.

Each year, our annual Livre de la Manufacture, which has a print run of 160,000 and is published in 11 languages, also provides a showcase for a renowned photographer.

Infused with visionary spirit and deeply attached to the culture of time, Jaeger-LeCoultre, is one of the few remaining names in watchmaking that carefully keeps all its skills and technologies under the same roof, the better to create its horological masterpieces, with their fusion of style and superb watchmaking.

For 175 years, the Manufacture has been the “Grande Maison” of the Joux Valley, the paradise of horological complications.

From that Swiss valley nestling 1,000 metres up in the mountains, Jaeger-LeCoultre has drawn its belief in the job well done, its desire for constant improvement and its technical mastery. Over a thousand men and women at Jaeger-LeCoultre, representing 40 crafts and professions, are dedicated to meeting new challenges and setting new standards. The brand has registered over 300 patents and created over 1,000 outstanding calibres to clad its timepieces, the watchmaking icons of both past and present.
