Le Coultre: For those who are interested in the history of famous watchmakers, the Jaeger LeCoultre watch company is one of the oldest Swiss watchmakers.

In 1833 Antoine Le Coultre found his watch company in the Joux Valley of Switzerland. Shortly after, he invented a machine for measuring the thousandth part of a millimetre, which established the firm as leaders in micro mechanics. In 1903, the company invented the thinnest movement in the world, only 1,38mm thick and in 1929, the smallest mechanical movement in the world, measuring 14,00 x 4,85mm. In 1917, Edmond Jaeger went into business with Jaqcues-David LeCoultre, grandson of the founder, to form the modern company Jaeger-LeCoultre. Their most famous watch was designed and produced in 1931 and marketed under the name of the “Reverso”, which is still being produced today.
