Art Deco Clock


A Jaeger Le Coultre, Art Deco, brass, and glass clock. Original mechanism with eight day movement. In good working order.

In 1903, Paris based watchmaker Edmond Jaeger set a challenge for Swiss manufacturers to develop and produce ultra-thin movements that he himself had invented. Jacques-David LeCoultre, Antoines grandson, now responsible for production at LeCoultre & Cie, accepted the challenge and started developing the exciting new ultra-thin time pieces.

 French Jeweller Cartier signed a contract that same year with Jaeger meaning all Jaeger movements be exclusive to Cartier for a period of 15 years, the movements being made by LeCoultre. The Collaboration between Jaeger and LeCoultre led to the company being officially renamed Jaeger-LeCoultre in 1937, of which the name remains, and stands as a pioneer of time piece development and production.
