Jaeger-LeCoultre Rue de la Paix Desk Clock with 24-hour Alarm, British Racing Green


Produced in the 1960s as part of a series featuring famous roads from iconic cities across the world, including New York’s ‘Wall Street’ and London’s ‘Portobello Road’, it represents a typical Parisian streetlamp. The ‘Rue de la Paix’ is perhaps the most emblematic of the series, typifying the street in Paris that runs from Place Vendôme to Opera Garnier.

The Watchmakers' Watchmaker

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.
