WHO THEY ARE Founded in 1833 by An­toine LeCoul­tre, an in­ven­tor and self-taught watch­maker. The first to set up a man­u­fac­ture in the Vallee de Joux, Switzer­land, he brought to­gether the skills of var­i­ous watch­mak­ing crafts­men. CLAIM TO FAME Cre­ated the world’s small­est move­ment, the Cal­i­bre 101, in 1929. It weighed less than 1g and com­prised 74 parts – a record un­matched to this day. Its iconic Rev­erso, with a steel case that was re­versible, was cre­ated for polo play­ers to pro­tect the watch’s del­i­cate sap­phire crys­tal dur­ing the game. It is still one of the brand’s best­sellers. WHAT’S HOT The Ju­bilee col­lec­tion, which cel­e­brates the brand’s 180th an­niver­sary. It com­prises two high com­pli­ca­tion mod­els – the Mas­ter Grande Tra­di­tion Tour­bil­lon Cylin­drique a Quantieme Per­petuel Ju­bilee and Mas­ter Grande Tra­di­tion Gy­ro­tour­bil­lon 3 Ju­bilee. RETAILS AT Jaeger-LeCoul­tre bou­tique at Ma­rina Bay Sands
