A legendary “factory of time” Jaeger-LeCoultre was founded by a local resident Antoine LeCoultre from LeCoultre family in 1833. The history of the brand started in Le Santier, Switzerland, where a young Antoine opened a small watch workshop. Prior to this event he had invented a tool machine for cutting watch wheels. The business of the watchmaker was developing and he elated by success continued his inventions in the watch art.
It was Mr. LeCoultre, who had an idea to create an accurate tool, which is called “milliohm meter” and it happened in 1844. In 1847 he already presented to the world a system of watch mechanism oscillation without use of the key. In 19 year Antoine LeCoultre and his son decided to organize a manufacture, which would work according to the principle of the closed cycle. To implement this idea in life the family gathers the most talented watchmakers in different spheres of this business and opens a company calling it LeCoultre & Cie. In 4 years the manufacture was partially mechanized and already able to produce quality and mechanically complex watches. The company has worked in this status until the beginning of the 20th century developing firm calibers and selling semi-finished products to the “monsters of the watch industry of Switzerland”.
Till 1890 an experienced manufacture had already had an opportunity to produce watches, the mechanisms of which were complicated with a minute repeater, chronograph, eternal calendar.
