Jaeger-LeCoultre has launched a new iPhone application that aims to share the fascinating world of fine watch making with the public.

Rather than simply present their collection, the app invites you to look at iconic models from a whole new angle: the perspective of an amateur watchmaker.

The application lets you explore the various stages in creating a watch, and a comprehensive horological dictionary compliments the six introductory lessons.

The classes enable users to practice watchmaking techniques directly on their iPhone screen: assembling a chronograph mechanism, decorating and jeweling a movement, polishing, engraving and gem-setting a case.

The watch classes are displayed at a rate of one new class every two weeks.

At the end of all the lessons a prize draw will reward one of the learners having correctly answered all three competition questions.

The winner will be offered a guided tour of the Manufacture located in the Vallée de Joux.

Download the application here – Via Watch Time
