Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrates the Art of Precision

Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrates the Art of Precision

It was an unforgettable night when Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrated its Art of Precision.

In the company of Benedict Cumberbatch, a friend of the Maison and a celebrated actor, the event honoured Jaeger-LeCoultre’s 186-year history of watchmaking at London’s Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition with an extravagant gala dinner.

A remarkable performance named Letters Live elevated the evening where celebrities including Juliet Stevenson, Ellie Bamber and Clarke Peters delivered live readings of historical letters with their own renditions to promote the power of literacy.

Another highlight of the night was none other than the masterpieces created by the Swiss watchmaker, the Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon Westminster Perpétuel, which comprises a miniaturised multi-axis gyrotourbillon with four sets of hammers and patented crystal gongs to play the Westminster carillon; and the Master Grande Tradition Répétition Minutes Perpétuelle, which draws inspiration from the chimes of antique sonnerie pocket watches.
