Jaeger-LeCoultre Is Supporting London Craft Week

During week dedicated to craft in London, the Michelangelo Foundation will present work of the twenty duos of artisans who took part in the first edition of the Homo Faber Fellowship, an education programme supported by Jaeger-LeCoultre.

After a one-month creative and entrepreneurial course taught by ESSEC Business School, fellows spent six months in the workshops of their paired master artisans. They were based in one of the following six countries: Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Greece, France, or the United Kingdom.

Creativity, but above all, the transmission of knowledge and artisanal techniques, were at the heart of these months spent working and collaborating together. Twenty objects created by the artisan duos will be on show in London from May 14 to 18 at Cromwell Place. Visitors will discover a diverse range of crafts and techniques , including ceramics, textiles, wood marquetry, stone sculpture, silversmithing, feather working and basket weaving.

On May 15th and 16th 2024, visitors can discover the engraving technique used on the case of the Reverso watch. The Reverso watch, created in 1931, with its unique pivoting case system, offers its owner the choice of personalizing the back of the watch with an engraving, or a miniature enamel work, mastered within the walls of the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre, in the Vallée de Joux.

Echoing this celebration of craftsmanship, Jaeger-LeCoultre will showcase its watchmaking expertise in its boutique at 13 Old Bond Street, London.
