Jaeger-LeCoultre Round Silver Pinstripe Watch Cufflinks -
Jaeger-LeCoultre has established itself among the finest luxury watch makers in the Swiss tradition since 1833. Aside from their own line of jaw-dropping timepieces, they have supplied their superior movements to companies such as Patek Philippe,
Cartier, Vacheron Constantin and Piguet, among many others.
Jaeger-LeCoultre has been responsible for a stunning number of technological advances within the watch industry, not the least of which was to create the world's thinnest automatic watch movement, measuring in at just 2.35 mm.
Jaeger-LeCoultre remains one of the exceptionally few companies in Switzerland that still manufactures its own movements - not to mention that they continue to manufacture movements for Patek Philippe as they have for over a century.
Virtually every single component of a Jaeger-LeCoultre watch, including movements, cases, dials, hands and bracelets, is hand-finished and produced in-house. This in turn results in strict quality control. As a result,
Jaeger-LeCoultre watches are recognized as being among the very finest hand-crafted watches available, and evidence of this can be seen in the fact that
Jaeger-LeCoultre regularly produces such masterpieces as the Reverso Tourbillon and Reverso Minute Repeater. They are also renown for the Master Control series of watches, which boast 1,000 hours of testing and assembly at the patient hands of a master watchmaker. The year 2013 sees
Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrating the 180th anniversary of its Grande Maison design. Their current line of luxury watches begin at approximately
$40,000 USD and can easily exceed the $100,000 mark.
This amazing pair of Le Coultre luxury watch cufflinks come from
vintage men's watches and serve to demonstrate the history on
which the company's stellar reputation was built. These powerfully
attractive mechanisms boast a stunning pinstripe pattern that is
elegant without being garish. The bright genuine ruby jewels
provide a striking contrast to the movement's sleek silver design.
The mechanism does not dwell on complicated solutions to accurate
time-keeping, opting instead for a straight forward strategy that
employs only the highest quality gears, cogs and jewels. This is
consistent with watch makers' philosophies of this time period and
obviously served Jaeger-LeCoultre well. What better way to honor
this history of exquisite craftsmanship and quality than to don
this spectacular pair of cufflinks so all can appreciate the fine
product of these incredible artisans. These movements are
extremely rare, so don't miss this opportunity to own and display
some of the finest watches in the history of luxury timepieces.
The perfect accoutrement for any horological devotee and a
particularly exceptional choice as a gift for "the man who
has everything". Limited quantities available.
