From 26 June to 2 July, Masterpiece 2014 London will bring together an impressive array of art and antique dealers at the South Grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea. Among the vendors and galleries displaying their wares will be Jaeger-LeCoultre, debuting its ‘Hybris Artistica’ watch collection, which consists of 12 pieces that showcase the Maison’s technical skill in Grandes Complications, and the artistry of its in-house enamelling, gem-setting, and engraving experts.


As part of its exhibit, Jaeger-LeCoultre will be offering Master Classes led by its expert watchmakers and artists. In the Watchmaking Master Class, participants will don the white coat of a watchmaker and examine the inner workings of a Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece, from the smallest pinion to the largest barrel. Under the Master’s guidance, guests will learn how to assemble the main spring responsible for powering the heart of the watch, and will come to understand the wealth of tradition and innovation that guide the hands of today’s watchmaking experts.
During the Enamelling Master Class, the Master Enameller will introduce the rare techniques of this art, from the painstaking attention to detail to the stage-by-stage crafting involved in creating a beautiful timepiece. Guests will then have the chance to test what they’ve learned, by enamelling their own piece of art.
A limited number of sessions are available, from 26 June to 2 July. To apply for complementary tickets for Masterpiece 2014 London or to participate in a Master Class please RSVP to: rsvp-uk@jaeger-lecoultre.com (with reference ‘H.B’).Now how wonderful that is?!!Surely an event not to miss!
