Jaeger-LeCoultre – New York / Février 2021
Discover rare or unique watches from collections that are both contemporary and historical, but also documents and objects never before presented to the public. The Maison also wanted to highlight the ‘métiers rares’ involved in the creation of these luxury objects.
The exhibition is divided into different spaces, dedicated to history, inventions and patents, but also to secrets kept for more than 180 years by the Swiss watchmaker. In each section, there are rare and striking pieces, which retrace the history of the manufacture.
Jaeger-LeCoultre also asked the Swiss artist Zimoun to create an installation for this exhibition. The artist was inspired by the sounds of the Vallée de Joux, just like the watchmakers of the manufacture, to design a mysterious hypnotic work made up of dozens of rotating discs, which produce unique sound and visual effects.
