This Jaeger LeCoultre clock is a playful take on a traditional desk ornament. Shaped like a street lamp, it bears the name of ‘Rue de la Paix’, a Parisian street running from Place Vendôme to Opéra Garnier.
Produced in the 1960s, this desk clock belongs to a series of street lamp clocks produced by Jaeger LeCoultre, with a range of street names adorned on the typically Parisian street lamp. Other examples feature emblematic roads from a range of cities, from New York’s ‘Wall Street’ to London’s ‘Portobello Road’. This example, with ‘Rue de la Paix’, is perhaps the most emblematic from the series.
Measuring almost thirty centimetres in height, this rather weighty clock is made from a brass base, painted over in black lacquer. The cream coloured dial features black Roman numerals, a classic Jaeger signature and is marked with a circled ‘8’, indicative of the clock’s 8 day power reserve. Above this, the Louis XV hands are made of blued-steel, adding a welcome touch of contrast to the dial.
An eccentric and playful object, executed with meticulous attention to detail, this could be a welcome addition to any desk or shelf.
