Midcentury Clocks For Your Home: Jaeger LeCoultre

Jaeger-LeCoultre  is a Swiss luxury watch and clock manufacturer founded by Antoine LeCoultre in 1833 and is based in Le Sentier, Switzerland.  Since 2000, the company has been a fully owned subsidiary of the Swiss luxury group Richemont. 

Jaeger-LeCoultre is regarded as a top-tier Richemont brand. It has hundreds of inventions, patents and over one thousand  to its name, including the world's smallest movement, one of the world's most complicated wristwatches (Grande Complication), and a timepiece of near-perpetual movement (the Atmos).

In December 2018, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) released an official report giving environmental ratings for 15 major watch manufacturers and jewelers in Switzerland.  Jaeger-LeCoultre, along with 3 other manufacturers including Vacheron Constantin and Cartier, was given an average environmental rating as "Upper Midfield", suggesting that the manufacturer has taken first actions addressing the impact of its manufacturing activities on the environment and climate change. 
The 60s were an expressive time for architecture and interior design, with the increasing interest in the subject of case study homes primarily in California, this allowed for many of those styles surrounding the popularity of these homes to quickly grow into fruition in the homes of those who admired them. A very important component in the home is the clock. Almost every home is somewhat incomplete without the infamous timepiece that directs us and sends us about our day. In our modern day and age, these trends of iconic midcentury modern accents are making a full come back. Jaeger LeCoultre emits this sense of 'time traveling' (no pun intended) back to the day when our cellphones were not our clock, but rather the clock itself, and it's strikingly essential presence in our homes. 

Jaeger LeCoultre Skeleton Clock (40 oz- 2.5lb)

This is a rare and beautifully made 16 jewel Model 355 clock by Jaeger LeCoultre. It has an 8-day inline movement (also called a skeleton bridge movement) with a compensated balance and Breguet overcoil hairspring, the same level of precision as a fine watch. Like most LeCoultre clocks, the parts are carefully finished to a very fine degree, then gold plated. The front glass is marked Jaeger LeCoultre as well as the inside mechanics along with “Swiss.” The piece dates circa 1960 and is in excellent condition.
