About the Model

Jaeger-LeCoultre has been one of the leading watch manufacturers and more impressively watch movement manufacturers since the early 1900s, though their dignified roots date all the way back to 1844. Jaeger-LeCoultre produced some of the most important movements for other manufacturers including Patek Philippe, Cartier, Audemars Piguet, and Vacheron Constantin. JLC also created a multitude of its own extraordinary watches throughout the company’s tenure as one of the leading Swiss watchmaking houses.

The relationship between the famed luxury design house Hermès and Jaeger-LeCoultre can be dated back to 1928, with both houses continuously collaborating on timepieces to be created by JLC and offered by Hermès until 1972. Jaeger-LeCoultre, being a master of mechanical watchmaking, often referred to as “the watchmaker’s watchmaker”, supplied the movements and handled the overall case manufacturing while Hermès lent their inspiration and creativity for the overall design.

The Étrier timepieces, a name which roughly translates to “stirrup” in English, directly coincides with the equestrian background of Hermès, a theme that has been consistent for the luxury brand since its inception with such motifs being seen in cufflinks, rings, and other accessories even today. The Italian collectors were early in their interest with these collaborative timepieces, as they usually are, and gave the watch the nickname “Lucchetto” or “padlock” for its close resemblance in design.

About the Brand

In 1833, Antoine LeCoultre set up a small workshop in the Vallée de Joux to create high precision watches. In 1903, Edmond Jaeger, a French renowned watchmaker challenged Swiss watchmakers to produce an ultra-thin movement of his own design. The LeCoultre family took up the challenge and this marked the beginning of the alliance leading to the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand. The company’s history is very rich, but if there was only one year to remember, it would be 1931, which marked a major milestone in the history of JLC: the birth of the Reverso, a watch conceived to withstand polo matches!
