On Location At Jaeger-LeCoultre In Le Sentier
Elizabeth and Ian are live on location in Le Sentier this week, where we are getting a first-hand look at the skills of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s artisans in some of the 180 different trades and crafts that this manufacture founded in 1833 unites under one (admittedly very large) roof.
This is made possible thanks to the fact that the company founded by Antoine LeCoultre now employs in excess of 1,300 of Switzerland’s most talented artisans, craftsmen and watchmakers.
Their skills begin with movement design and component manufacture and don’t even begin to end with embellishment processes that include the seven enamellers who make their artistic homes within the spacious factory.
And then of course there are the watches, so many fantastic watches both old and new!
