Desk Clock | 8 Day
Recently serviced, this Jaeger LeCoultre Eight Day Desk Clock is a charming example of mid-century design, to be enjoyed on a daily basis on a desk or bedside table. Rendered in white metal, it is both discrete and elegant, with subtle details found throughout.
During the 20th century, Jaeger LeCoultre was known for producing its own wristwatches, such as the Reverso and the Memovox, as well as creating an imaginative array of horological objects. With a wide range of different designs - from leather-bound travel clocks to miniature key pendants which tell the time - they were all powered by the manufacture’s own calibers. Their mechanical prowess was such that their movements also found themselves in the watches of Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin, among others.
This particular clock demonstrates that Jaeger LeCoultre’s talent didn’t confine itself to mechanics. The clock is slanted at an angle, allowing one to easily glance at the time, when it is placed on a table. It features a range of varied finishes throughout the case, with a polished bezel and a more intricate, textured finish on the edges of the case, reminiscent of the pattern found on wood bark. The base blends straight onto any surface it is placed on, giving it a noticeable visual presence.
The dial of this Jaeger LeCoultre Desk Clock is paired back, with black, Roman numerals and straight indices painted onto a white background. A convenient date function is placed at 3 o’clock, with a satisfyingly modern sans-serif font used for the numerals. It features an 8-day power reserve, as indicated by the surrounded “8” signature at six o’clock. The “SWISS MADE” signature at 6 o’clock is a reminder of the provenance of this collectable.
