Jaeger-lecoultre Decrypted Logo
The world of wristwatches is vast and profound. It is not easy to understand all the types and styles. If you have spare time when studying various models, you may try to explore the brand itself. The ins and outs of each brand, each brand has its exciting and touching story. It is also because of these rich historical nutrients that we can create today’s wonderful and rich watch craftsmanship. Today we start with the Jaeger-Lecoultre logo and start to explore the story behind it. .
Speaking of Jaeger-LeCoultre, people think of JAEGER-LECOULTRE and the unique symbol of the brand. These are long-established basic knowledge for us watch fans, but we may only know a little about the origin of these signs, and before such signs were formed, Jaeger-LeCoultre actually had some vignettes.
Jaeger-LeCoultre was established by Antoine LeCoultre as early as 1833. He not only invented the gears of clocks, but also invented the ‘micrometer’ and ‘keyless winding’ system, which greatly improved the technology of clocks. In 1866 Antoine LeCoultre and his son Elie LeCoultre co-founded a watch factory in Ru Valley. They brought all the watchmaking technology together to create a unique watch. On the dials of all models at that time, the ‘LECOULTRE’ logo was printed (this is the predecessor of Jaeger-LeCoultre). Some antique watches can still see models with the LECOULTRE logo on it!
By 1903, Jacques-David LeCoultre, the grandson of Antoine LeCoultre, took over the business of Jaeger-LeCoultre, and also started an unexpected development for Jaeger-LeCoultre. Edmond Jaeger, a watchmaker from the French Navy, came to Switzerland with an ultra-thin movement designed by him to look for a capable watch factory. At this moment Jacques-David LeCoultre accepted the challenge and completed the cooperation between the two brands. The first ultra-thin movement watch. The two independent labels have been given the opportunity to cooperate with each other in this opportunity, and since then they have cooperated with each other and created the ultra-thin series of watches that have remained famous in history.
Since then, the logo of the watch has changed from LeCoultre in the beginning to the symbol of the merger of J and L, which not only symbolizes the close cooperation between the two relations, but also a community of destiny that supports each other.
