  • Catalogue Essay

    This limited edition set of four gold and enamel Reverso wristwatches is a lovely representation of one of the most represented themes in art, the four seasons. From music to the visual arts, many artists have sought to represent the traditional seasons, spring, summer, fall and winter. Jaeger-LeCoultre chose ‘The Seasons’ (1896) decorative panels by Czech artist Alfons Mucha (1860-1939). Beautifully represented in the Art Nouveau style, spring is represented with white blossoms and birds; summer with red poppies; autumn amongst chrysanthemums and fruits of the harvest, and finally winter in a snowy landscape. The watches are as beautifully rendered as Mucha’s artistic design.

  • Artist Biography

    Jaeger-LeCoultre

    Swiss • 1833

    Not all companies in the watchmaking field have been able to stand the test of time quite like Jaeger LeCoultre, also known as the "watchmaker's watchmaker." Founded in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre and originally named LeCoutre, the firm provided watchmaking's top brands, such as Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet, the high-grade, unfinished mechanical movements with which they completed their watches.

    In the early 1900s, Cartier's watch supplier Edmond Jaeger sought out LeCoultre's help in creating the world's thinnest watches. The collaboration resulted in the creation of Cartier's earliest Tank and Santos watches, all housed with LeCoultre movements. The duo decided to merge in 1937, and the firm officially became the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand by which collectors know and adore it today. Some of the firm's most significant and important timepieces include the Reverso, the Memovox, the Atmos clock and, among modern watches, their Master Complications.
