02 JAEGER-LECOULTRE HERITAGE GALLERY
Housed inside the original farm where founder Antoine LeCoultre first setup his workshop in 1833, this newly opened gallery that resides in the peaceful village of Le Sentier is a treasure trove of horological discovery. Upon arrival, visitors will feel immediately transported to a place of tranquillity, enhanced by the elegant interiors of the 500 sq m space that has been designed based on the maison’s refined aesthetic codes. Depending on one’s interests, various discovery zones are available for exploration. Among the highlights are a historical archive that marks the key milestones and creative achievements of the maison; a charming workshop wherein passionate watchmakers will demonstrate the fine art of restoring a fine timepiece; and a massive display wall, located beside a swooping curved staircase bathed in light, where 340 calibres have been meticulously arranged to appear as though suspended in mid-air.
Location: Parc Jura vaudois, Rue de la Golisse 8, 1347 Le Sentier, Switzerland.
