One cannot speak of Swiss watchmaking without mentioning the name Jaeger-LeCoultre. This company has been a pillar of the industry since 1833. The company is primarily identified with two series of watches: the Reverso watches (feature rectangular cases that reverse to show either side) and the Master series of watches, which must pass a 1000 hour accuracy test.
Today, Jaeger-LeCoultre remains at the forefront of luxury watch design, as some of the samples on this page exemplify. Within its two series, it presents a broad range of styles and kinds of watches, including chronographs, moonphases, tourbillons and many more.
Jaeger-LeCoultre products are warranted by Jaeger-LeCoultre, to the original purchaser, to be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use for a period of two years from the date of purchase.
