Visit to the Jaeger-LeCoultre manufactory
However, it was naturally not just the culinary delights that attracted this group to the Vallée de Joux, but the prospect of taking a look around a very special manufacture. At the end of May 2013, the famous Jaeger-LeCoultre manufacture opened its hallowed halls especially for Beyer customers, which proved to be a fascinating experience in every regard. The members of the party had the opportunity to look over the watchmakers’ shoulders, as well as go on a guided tour of the Atmos Atelier and the Heritage Gallery, all of which resulted in a highly enjoyable and fascinating day.
The history of the watch manufacture, Jaeger-LeCoultre, started 180 years ago in Le Sentier, in the sleepy Vallée de Joux. Since then, numerous inventions and innovations have made the company renowned over the world.
