  • Catalogue Essay

    With a perpetual calendar complication and an alarm function, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grand Reveil is arguably one of the most well-valued luxury wristwatch with an in-house caliber in the market. With a prolonged history of manufacturing movements for other brands and themselves, Jaeger-LeCoultre stresses on their excellence in executing delightful and robust movements with a traditional approach to horology. With an inspiration tracing back to 1989 during the quartz crisis, the firm was in need to develop a timepiece that would bring traditional watchmaking back to life. The idea was to develop the infamous Memovox with an alarm function and combine that with a perpetual calendar. The result was the ref. 180.1/2/6.99 Grand Reveil.

    The Master Grand Reveil was launched in 2005 and was only produced in precious metal. Carrying much of its same trait from its previous model, the reference was launched as a limited edition series with a total of 250 pieces produced. The present example is numbered 1 out of 250 pieces.

  • Artist Biography


    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.
