JLC Discovery & Masterclasses

Jaeger-LeCoultre is known for being a true manufacture, a characteristic that has owed it great respect in the watchmaking community over the decades; as you may know, JLC is often referred to as "the watchmaker's watch". 

In a very rare fashion among top watchmakers, JLC is also willing to not only take you behind the scenes (with various visit possibilities) but also let you learn how it's done. The watchmaking masterclasses are a rare opportunity to get some fairly serious knowledge, directly from the experts. 

All is located in the lovely Vallée-de-Joux area, cradle of Swiss high horology. 


Rue de la Golisse 8, 1247 Sentier (Google Maps)
