From its heritage—and many records—to the proprietary components that beat in the heart of each handmade watch today, Jaeger-LeCoultre represents the best of the luxury watch world. There's personality, history and a finesse that can only come from an item made with precise attention to detail. Visiting their manufacture (where watch parts are produced and assembled) in Le Sentier, Switzerland—as we have—underscores these facts. Here, watches like those in the brand's new Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris collection have been imagined and are artfully produced, each a bridge between their Swiss expertise, the past and the desires of a contemporary consumer. Lionel Favre, Jaeger-LeCoultre's Director of Product Design, shares the process for creating a new watch at the Manufacture and the rebirth of the 1968 Memovox Polaris in our latest CH Video.
