The Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Yearbook is an annual publications started in 2007, paying tribute to the world of images and highlighting contributions from the most famous names in this domain. Jaeger-LeCoultre has been involved for many years in the world of photography.
First, in 1938, the Manufacture created a camera called “Compass” which was equipped with the latest technical functions of the time and was very tiny. Then, the brand has also established long term relationships with the Jeu de Paume Museum in Paris and the Elysée Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland. Every year, the editorial content is peppered with a wealth of cultural and artistic themes, as well as musings on extraordinary lifestyles and trends.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Yearbooks
An annual event eagerly anticipated by Jaeger-LeCoultre connoisseurs, the Yearbook is a luxurious publication that helps to raise the brand’s profile and establish its presence in the world of photography. Available in English and French, its editorial content is peppered with a wealth of cultural and artistic themes, as well as musings on extraordinary lifestyles and trends. For its second edition, Jaeger-LeCoultre has decided to focus on feminine viewpoints and to feature renowned names from photography and design. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Yearbook, launched in December 2007, expresses a unique philosophy. Dedicated to collectors and lovers of beautiful timepieces, this prestigious publication is intended as a glowing tribute to the world of images and welcomes contributions from the most famous names in this domain. Published under the supervision of Franco Cologni with the expert advice of Régis Durand, former curator of the Jeu de Paume Museum, the Yearbook highlights the brand’s chief themes and accomplishments addressed over the course of the current year. This presentation of brand news, in the widest sense of the word, is interpreted through the creative and sometimes highly original perspectives of the most celebrated photographers, as well as in the words of recognised authors. Each theme opens up new horizons, both exceptional and imaginary. Each Yearbook preserves the year’s most memorable Jaeger-LeCoultre highlights: new product lines, exceptional creations, events, partnerships, etc. Explained in novel and inventive ways, the array of themes addressed – including exceptional mechanics, longstanding traditions, the spirit of creativity, sport and even aesthetic research – transmit the brand’s values.
A work of high artistic and creative content, the seventh edition of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Yearbook showcases exceptional timepieces through photographs and images. As usual, the central feature is devoted to the year’s flagship timepieces : in this case the Hybris Mechanica collection.
