For many years now, Jaeger-LeCoultre has been honouring the skills and expertise involved in the world of film-making as well as paying tribute to great directors. Whether in the workshops of the Manufacture or in the intricate process of film production, artisans and artists are fired by the same passion and the same creative élan: to ensure every second bears the imprint of eternity. Concern for details, technical advancement, tireless creativity and the quest for excellence are just some of the values shared by these two worlds.
Jaeger-LeCoultre is delighted to be paying homage to an incredible artist both in front and behind the camera, by becoming a partner of Chaplin’s World. The Manufacture, located since 1833 in the Vallée de Joux, Switzerland, has an ongoing history with the artist and his family. When he settled in Canton Vaud, the cantonal authorities presented him with a Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox watch, while an association of Swiss journalists gifted him an Atmos clock. These two items testifying to Charlie Chaplin’s heritage will be on display in the Manoir de Ban.
