Jaeger LeCoultre & Diane Kruger
It's been quite some time now since I written a good ladies watch. If you've been following my articles lately you would have notice my appreciation for fine in-house movements. To be frank and bold, nothing and I mean nothing beats Jaeger-LeCoultre
in this aspect. A true Swiss Watch "Manufacture", which in French simply translates to "We made it ourselves!". Jaeger-LeCoultre has long been a supplier of fine movements to other Swiss watch company, and not just any other Swiss watch company but rather the big three themselves - Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe, some of which have already bought the rights to use the movement. One famous example is the JLC calibre 920, where the coveted original Nautilus
use to house until Audemars Piguet bought the license to create what is now known as the AP calibre 2121. Yes you are correct, the insides of the iconic Royal Oak
I did promise a ladies watch article didn't I. So without further ado, I give you Jaeger-LeCoultre's own brand ambassador for Haute Joaillerie
on the Parisian premier of "Farewell, My Queen"
(“Les adieux à la Reine”) where she plays as Marie Antoinette during the French Revolution. She was spotted wearing a Jaeger-LeCoultre as she always had. But instead of wearing high jewelry or complication watches she simply opted to stay with the classic Reverso (or should I say classique!). It was a look of pure elegance along with a simplistic approach that is truly becoming of a Jaeger-LeCoultre ambassador. Normally, I would have pointed out the fact that bringing ambassadors in to the table is nothing but marketing hogwash. But for this occasion I will simply step back as nothing is more genuine than the combination of Diane Kruger wearing a truly remarkable timepiece that is simply a Jaeger-LeCoultre.
