Jaeger LeCoultre and Colette collaborate to make special timepiece

First published: 27-09-2010

Jaeger-LeCoultre (JLC) has unveiled a limited edition timepiece that has been produced after the watchmaker collaborated with a French boutique.

The Memovox World-Timer is unique in the way it has incorporated a world-time marker into the centre of its vintage-looking dial, Hodinkee has reported.

However, to mark the watch out as a specially-designed piece, JLC, who has been making timepieces since founder Antoine LeCoultre founded his first workshop back in 1833, has decided to change the city of Paris to the name of Colette, in recognition to the location of the boutique that it has collaborated with.

A blue tone for this name stands out even more by the fact that it is the only tone of this colour that can be found on a timepiece, which only uses shades of black, silver and white for the rest of the design.

Finishing the Memovox World-Timer off is a big date window near to the three o'clock position and an elegant-looking black leather strap.
