Discover watchmaking with JLC

If you follow watch blogs on the Internet you probably already know about the Jaeger-LeCoultre iPhone App. It is really pretty fun! Besides showcasing all of their products it also has a watchmaking initiation school with “lessons” about the many professions surrounding the manufacture of watches. It also has a watchmaking dictionary and a chance to enter a contest and win a tour of the manufacture in the Valle de Joux.

In addition to this new app I recently toured their web page and found it to be among the best of all the brands. If you’re interested in the profession of watchmaking you might find their tour of professions to be of interest. My favorite part was when the show the cutter for the escape wheel along side the finished product. It sheds some light on how a machine can cut such an intricate tooth profile.

    I forgot to mention. Don’t enter that contest, however because it will decrease MY odds of winning!

    Thanks for the heads up, J.Peter. This is really neat. I love the video footage they included of the gyrotourbillon.

    Is there any way to interact with this app outside of the iphone? (Some of us are still using our blackberry’s).

    No, I don’t think there is anyway that you can use an iPhone app without an iPhone or an iPod touch.
