To celebrate the 180th anniversary of Jaeger-LeCoultre, Harrods is hosting a series of masterclasses with the watchmakers from the Swiss manufacture.

The celebration of the watchmaker will enable fans of the brand to step into the shoes of a watchmaker and understand the manufacturing and working of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s watches.

Jaeger LeCoultre Masterclasses

The manufacture will have experts on hand to demonstrate Jaeger-LeCoultre’s horological know-how, demonstrating the incredible work that goes into everything from the pinions and to the dial.

Three different techniques mastered by Jaeger-LeCoultre will be featured; engraving (May 13-19, enameling (May 20-25) and gem setting (May 26-31).
